Utah is best known for its red rock canyons, cliffs and stunning mesas. The state's mountains, rivers, desert and aforementioned terrain all combine to make for one heck of an adventure. Whether you're into rock climbing, hiking, golfing, rafting, kayaking, fishing, four-wheeling, mountain biking or horseback riding, you can find hundreds of places to become one with nature in Utah.

With two mountain ranges forming the backdrop of Salt Lake City, it's no wonder the scenic city hosted the 2002 Winter Olympics! Business travelers will find accommodations to suit any style or budget -from full-service downtown hotels to rustic lodges. And the best news is that over 17,000 guest rooms are available in Salt Lake, with 7,250 of them located in the downtown area in close proximity to the Salt Palace Convention Center.

Make some time to explore one of Salt Lake's greatest attractions - Temple Square. Temple Square’s architectural gem is the Tabernacle, which is home to the world-renowned Mormon Tabernacle Choir. Visitors can hear the Sunday broadcast at 9:30 a.m. or attend a free rehearsal on Thursday evenings. And if you have time for recreation, you'll be happy to know that there are 11 ski resorts within an hour's drive of Salt Lake International Airport.

Historical Note: The state of Utah is named after the Ute tribe. The Ute once lived over much of Utah and all of western Colorado. In historic times, they ranged well onto the great plains of eastern Colorado into Nebraska and south into New Mexico. In historic times, there were at least 11 different bands of the Ute Tribe. The Ute lived by hunting, fishing, gathering and trading with other Native American groups in the region. Housing consisted of brush structures and conical shaped tipis made from animal skins. During the late 1800s, the Ute lost most of their lands and were restricted to reservations in southern Colorado and northeastern Utah.
