Salt Lake City Sports Teams and Outdoor Recreation

Salt Lake City is just a skip away from the pinnacle of outdoor recreation, with world-class skiing and snowboarding, hiking, and rock climbing. The sports scene isn’t bad either. Here are our tips for Utah’s best sports and recreation within about an hour’s drive in your rental car.

Sports Games

The Utah Jazz proudly represents the city’s only professional sports team within the city limits, but you’ll find lively Real Salt Lake soccer games just a short drive away in the suburb of Sandy, Utah. Downtown SLC is also home to the Salt Lake Bees, a minor league team that farms for the Los Angeles Angels.

Outdoor Activities

You can’t visit Salt Lake City without visiting the Wasatch mountains, which were the grounds for many of the 2002 winter Olympic events. Head 30 minutes northeast of Salt Lake City to Park City for the country’s best skiing and snowboarding. You can also find great mountain biking, rock climbing, and hiking in the summer in Little Cottonwood Canyon or Big Cottonwood Canyon.

Day Trips From Salt Lake City

Just as Salt Lake City is seeing massive growth, the suburbs are popping up with more and more attractions for tourists. And of course, you can’t miss Southern Utah. Read on for some winning day trip ideas.


Almost anyone who comes to Salt Lake City will want to spend a day exploring the downtown area. Salt Lake City has one of the country’s cleanest downtowns, and it is easy to navigate. Hop into your rental car to visit City Creek Mall and Temple Square, then stroll down Main Street to Eva’s Bakery for breakfast and incredible sushi at Takashi for dinner.

Zion’s National Park

If you’re up for a little trip within a trip, take the 4-hour drive to Zion’s National Park in Southern Utah. This otherworldly red rock scenery is a once-in-a-lifetime experience you definitely won’t regret.

Park City

Aside from great powder in the winter, Park City’s unique ski town environment makes for a great place to stroll, shop, and eat. Head to Park City’s Main Street for celebrity sightings during the Sundance Film Festival in January, or avoid the crowds and have the place to yourself in the summer.

Luxury Car Rental

Since the city is quite spread out, you’ll definitely want a Salt Lake City car rental to enjoy your trip in comfort. And if you really want to talk comfort, consider a luxury car rental.

Avis provides luxury cars of every name and size with a Best Rate Guarantee, meaning you’ll get the best price of any competitors out there. Earn travel rewards with the Avis Preferred program, which includes great upgrades, accessories, and the best car rental deals in the U.S.
