Summer in Salt Lake

Salt Lake City Summer Activities

Spring into Summer at our SLC Hotel

As the temperatures rise in Salt Lake City, you can trade in your skis and snowboard for hiking boots and golf clubs, and take advantage of the city and its stunning surroundings. Summertime in SLC is truly something to behold, and Kimpton Hotel Monaco Salt Lake City places you right in the middle of the action. We’re a short drive from hiking and biking trails that offer something for all skill levels. You can practice your short and your long game at several of the city’s top golf courses, just minutes from our front doors. Venture a bit further afield and you can treat yourself to a casual float down the Provo River. And if you’re after urban adventures, you don’t have far to go for premium shopping opportunities or Salt Lake City’s own beautiful botanical garden. And when you’re ready to kick back and relax, you’ll find amenities like yoga mats to help you unwind in style.
