City Creek Center
The indoor/outdoor mall (pictured above) has a retractable roof, waterfalls, a creek (home to trout) running through the entire center and choreographed fountain shows at the top of every hour. Among the 110 stores and restaurants are Nordstrom, Macy’s, Tiffany & Co., Lululemon, Rolex, Restoration Hardware and Sephora.
The Gateway Mall
This mixed-use shopping spot, just a few steps away from the convention center, has more than 80 shops, restaurants and amenities. You can find stores like Abercrombie & Fitch, Downeast, Barnes & Noble, Sur la Table and Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory. There are plenty of things to do here, too, with Wiseguys Comedy Club, the Larry H. Miller Megaplex Theatre, Clark Planetarium, live shows at The Depot, and the Discovery Gateway Children’s Museum.
You’ll find Whole Foods Market, Tabula Rasa, Williams-Sonoma, Pottery Barn, Flight Boutique’s new Salt Lake City location and nearly 80 other shops in spectacular trolley-car barns. Don’t forget to stop into Normal Ice Cream for a delectable soft-serve ice cream. Bonus: The historic Trolley Square Water Tower has one of the best views of downtown Salt Lake. Schedule a tour and you’ll get a guide and 30 minutes at the top of the tower to take some unmatchable Instagram pics.
