Top Ten Thursday -- City Trip

It's Thursday, so it's time to link up with Tamara over at Part Time Working Hockey Mom.  Venture over to her blog and check it out, she's pretty nifty.
Today we're taking an imaginary city trip! We picked a location we've been wanting to visit, googled the h*** out of the internet and put together the top ten things we want to see, do, experience, eat, etc. at that place! 
Random location:  Salt Lake City, Utah (and surrounding area)
1.  This is a little outside of Salt Lake City, it's the Homestead Crater.  I think it would be fun to swim in a Crater. Spend a little bit of time there. 
2.  Antelope Island: There are bison there.  Enough said.  I'm sure there is a lot more awesomeness too, but once I see bison, I'm hooked.
3.  The "Living Room" trail: all about the hiking.
6.  Ensign Peak
7.  Mormon Things: Temple Square, Beehive House, Tabernacle....not for religious purposes, but for viewing the "popular" things sort of thing.
9. Clark Planetarium because I love science and National History Museum of Utah.
10. The Spiral Jetty this one I found out about in my long ago undergrad years when I took an American Art History class.  My assignments for that class were to research the Spiral Jetty and the Burning Man Festival.   So, that class peaked my interest in that place and I always forget where it is then I have to look it up.

Where would you pick? 


  1. #4 - sounds like a good place to visit, I like gardens

    #10 - land art - looks interesting though how you can view it if you're standing in it.

    good list.

    have a lovely day.

  2. We've been to SLC and seen the Capitol, some Mormon Temples and a salt lake or three. While I wouldn't mind going back, I'd much rather re-visit other Utah attractions like Bryce Canyon, Capitol Reef and Lake Powell. Gorgeous :-)

    1. The big vacation I am planning for 2019 we are going to go to Bryce Canyon and Capitol Reef and Zion and Arches and all those other amazing places. I plan on spending a day in SLC because I'm not interested in spending any more time there. I rather get to the outdoors and adventures!

  3. Love this idea. What fun. Used to do something similar with my 5th graders in a study of the 50 states.

    Hey, want to do a post about the names of our blogs? They are very similar. Would love to write something about why I named my blog what I did and you could do the same. Maybe we could get other folks to join us??

    If that sounds like something you would like to try, drop me an email.

    Hope to hear from you!
