Bordered by the Wasatch Mountains, this bustling suburb of Salt Lake City has entertainment, shopping, dining and sports, including snowing in winter and mountain biking in summer.

Watch a concert under the stars or play in dozens of parks in Sandy City. Pioneers settled Sandy in the 1860s. Just a decade later, it had transformed from a small farming village to a bustling mining town. Today, it is a major suburb of Salt Lake City and one of the largest cities in Utah.

Learn more about the area’s history at Sandy Museum. Find the museum in an early Sandy City storefront where farmers, miners and Native Americans bought and traded goods.

Enjoy the great outdoors in Sandy City. Explore miles of trails snaking through its 32 parks. Use the sporting facilities at Flat Iron Mesa Park, Sandy City’s largest park, including baseball diamonds, tennis courts, soccer fields and jogging trails. Check out the fields, pavilions and playgrounds at Lone Peak Park and Falcon Park, the city’s other large parks. In summer, watch an outdoor feature during the popular “Movies in the Park” series.

Attend a soccer game under the open sky at Rio Tinto Stadium. Cheer on the home team, Real Salt Lake, a Major League Soccer club. The stadium also hosts concerts and other performances throughout the year.

Enjoy shopping in Sandy City. Purchase anything on your list at The Shops at South Town, a beautifully airy and light-filled mall containing over 150 stores and restaurants. Sit back and enjoy a film at Jordan Commons, a large entertainment complex complete with a cinema and various dining options.

Have an unforgettable experience at the Sandy Amphitheater. Relax at a concert accompanied by views of the Wasatch Mountains to the east and the sun setting to the west.

For winter sports excitement, drive to one of eight ski resorts within a 45-mile (72-kilometer) radius of Sandy City. Ski the slopes of world-famous resorts such as Alta or Snowbird. Visit Sundance in January to see screenings at the world-class Sundance Film Festival.

During the current Coronavirus pandemic, people were everywhere, not practicing social distancing. So much traffic when people are supposed to be staying home. My hotel was awesome, but I will never return to Utah again. Worst drivers ever.

The city/area is okay. We mostly visit for the amazing skiing, not the city atmosphere.
