Contrary to what you may have heard, there is lots to do in Salt Lake City at night. Dozens of concerts, plays and special events are held in and around Salt Lake City every week.
And there are numerous brew pubs, night clubs and bars all over downtown, as well as some of the best dining in the west--from sushi and seafood to barbecue and steak.
For sports fans, there are pro basketball, soccer, hockey or baseball games throughout the year that provide fun for the entire family. Tickets are reasonably priced, and public transit is available to most of the venues.
Or if you prefer, visit any of the local sports bars and watch the game while having a drink with your 50 newest friends.
If it's entertainment you want, come see the Utah Symphony performing at Abravanel Hall, hear a great jazz performance or just catch a movie.
You can also find plenty of shopping at City Creek, The Gateway and Trolley square, to name a few. The bottom line: there's something for everyone to do in Salt Lake at night.
