In Northern Utah, Ogden begins a populated swath that
runs nearly 100 miles south to Provo, with Salt Lake City, the state's
capital and host city for the 2002 Winter Olympic Games as the mid-point.
The area is known locally as "The Wasatch Front," named
for the mountains towering to the east. The majority of Utah's residents
live along this route.
These cities offer a great selection of restaurants,
sporting events and a vibrant arts community. Utahns view the performing
arts as opportunities for entertainment, education and enlightenment.
Some of the most popular groups include the Utah Symphony, Ballet
West, the Utah Opera Company, and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. Utahns
actively support professional and amateur sporting events.
On the eastern side of the Wasatch Range, Park City
is a year-round resort town with three acclaimed ski areas, the
Sundance Film Festival and summer concert series including internationally
known musicians and groups. Some of the finest art galleries in
the western United States are found on Park City's Main Street.
In Southern Utah, Cedar City hosts the Tony-Award
Winning® Utah Shakespearean Festival, while St. George is the
setting for dozens of golf courses, health spas and a growing retirement
mecca. Click on a city or view the map below for more information.
