Salt Lake City, Utah

Campgrounds and RV parks are available in Salt lake City.

In 1847, a group of Mormon pioneers, led by Brigham Young, arrived in what is now the state of Utah. Although Europeans had settled there in 1776, the dominant populations were the native tribes of the Ute (from which the state name is derived), the Navaho, and in more distant regions, away from the central fertile sector, the Paiute and Shoshone races. Young's words, This is the place were remembered, recorded and then commemorated in the park of that name which is a tourist attraction in the city. A statue of the early settlers was built in the centennial year of the city's founding.

Salt Lake City is in the wide valley between two mountain ranges, the Wasatch Mountains to the east and the Oquirrhs Range to the west. Great Salt Lake is a remnant of the ancient and vast Lake Bonneville and provided the basis for the founding name, as well as a salt mining industry. Rich stores of copper, silver, gold and lead were also mined and mining still has its place in the economy of the region. The pioneers began tilling and planting the day they arrived and this industrious and hard-working approach has continued, exemplified in the state symbol, the beehive.

The population of the metropolitan centre is around 1,200,000. Growth is attributed to the well-known Mormon practice of having large families as well as immigration from other states, notably California. A healthy lifestyle contributes to the higher than national average life expectancy. At the start of its history, the LDS pioneers constituted the majority of the settler population. Now they form about 53%, a strong indication that diversity has taken root.

Tourism is considered a big financial contributor, thanks in large measure to the fact that the 2002 Winter Olympics were held there. This has resulted in a strong recreation tourist industry with skiing at the forefront. Salt Lake City is the industrial banking centre of the United States. Computer and health care services also account for a large number of jobs, along with other service industry positions. The presence of the concentrated Mormon population has made its particular mark on civic history, laws, lifestyle and attitudes.
