Salt Lake City, Utah
4,226 feet above sea level and tucked into the heart of the Wasatch Front, Salt Lake City is one of the most important and vital cities in all the West.
With a population of 2.4 million, Salt Lake City is a happening hub of culture, music, sports and entertainment. Founded by BYU (Brigham Young University) namesake, Brigham Young, Salt Lake City is the headquarters of the LDS Church (The Church Of Latter-Day Saints) and the site of the nation’s first transcontinental railroad.
Home of the Lincoln High way, the first transcontinental highway, along with I-15 and I-80, SLC—as it is called by the locals—has earned the moniker of being “The Crossroads of the West”. Thanks to scenic and breathtaking views of the Wasatch Mountains, Salt lake City has become a popular destination for outdoor and skiing fans, which also helped in landing the 2002 Winter Olympics.
While not SLC proper, Park City, which is 32 miles southeast is the world-renowned location of the largest independent film festival in the United States, the Sundance Film Festival. Home to notable models and actresses such as Julianne Hough and former Playboy playmate, Jaime Bergman, could fellow Wasatch beauty in swimsuit and lingerie model, Kailey Klein be next?
