Salt Lake City is a place of many moods – and seasons – making it a worthwhile place to visit, with a stay in one of these great apartments – bookable on Culture Trip.

If you land in their frozen winter, you’re surrounded by endless opportunities to ski, snowboard and even bobsleigh. In the summer, the city itself comes alive – and, due to the altitude – with dry heat. Fantastic culture, renowned restaurants and hidden speakeasies, salt flats, double-feature drive-ins, waterfalls and hiking trails that appear from under the snow all make this city well worth a short-term apartment rental.
