Took the family to see the Great Salt Lake. I have noticed the drought has taken its toll on it. Really nothing spectacular.

It is not easy to get that close to experience the Great Salt Lake. this is the place to go. There is a small 3 USD fee well worth it. You get a great view of the lake and the huge island. Lots of birds...More

For 3$ you can park and walk along the beach to experience the Great Salt Lake. There is also a small dock and a building with a gift shop and bathrooms. It was too cold to swim in May, so this was a good place...More

Hi, huiling s. I went to Antelope Island last July. I doubt that you can get to Antelope Island by public transportation. It is about one hour and forty minutes' drive north of Salt Lake City. You have to get out to Antelope... More
