Salt Lake City in Utah, USA: pictures from the City Creek Shopping Center, the Gateway Shopping Center, and the City Library

Salt Lake City: the City Creek Shopping Center
Salt Lake City in Utah, USA: the City Creek Shopping Center.

Recently the Mormon Church invested 2 billion dollars in the construction of a shopping center that covers 2 city blocks: the City Creek Shopping Center is a hybrid indoor and outdoor shopping mall with a flowing creek. During the summer, the retractable roof is pulled back to allow open air access. In the winter the roof is closed and the trees are lined with Christmas lights. The stores are catered to high price clientele who are planning on spending money.

Salt Lake City Gateway Shopping Center

Another open-air mall in the Salt Lake City Center. Built prior to the 2002 Winter Olympics, the Gateway Shopping Center was the only upscale shopping destination in Salt Lake until City Creek Center was completed. The mall has a distinctive Olympic Village feel. In the main square, there is the Olympic fountain and a plaque with the names of all the Olympic volunteers. It is connected to the historic Union Pacific railway depot.

Salt Lake City Library
Salt Lake City in Utah, USA: The Salt Lake City Library.

Libraries usually aren't the most spectacular place people should visit in most cities. In Salt Lake an innovative design to the library makes it unique. An outdoor walkway takes you to the top of the library where it is possible to enjoy something to drink around tables and chairs. Its unique architecture makes it an interesting place to visit or just enjoy the afternoon.
