Salt Lake City has many diverse media outlets. Most of the major television and radio stations are based in or near the city. The Salt Lake City metropolitan area is ranked as the 31st largest radio  and 33rd largest television  market in the United States. Other Spanish-language newspapers include El Estandar , Amigo Hispano online only , and El Observador de Utah , which offers free residential delivery. Utah Stories is a magazine that covers local issues, primarily focused on the Salt Lake Valley.
KSTU 13 is the area's Fox affiliate. Because television and radio stations serve a larger area usually the entire state of Utah, as well as parts of western Wyoming , southern Idaho , parts of Montana , and eastern Nevada , ratings returns tend to be higher than those in similar-sized cities. Some Salt Lake radio stations are carried on broadcast translator networks throughout the state. Salt Lake City has become a case of market saturation on the FM dial; one cannot go through more than about two frequencies on an FM radio tuner before encountering another broadcasting station.
Several companies, most notably Millcreek Broadcasting and Simmons Media , have constructed broadcast towers on Humpy Peak in the Uinta Mountains to the east. These towers allow frequencies allocated to nearby mountain communities to be boosted by smaller, low-powered FM transmitters along the Wasatch Front. The most popular is Temple Square , which includes the Salt Lake Temple not open to the general public and visitors' centers open to the public, free of charge.
The Family History Library , the world's largest genealogical library, is just west of Temple Square. It is run by the LDS Church and is open to the public and free of charge. In , the Salt Lake City main library received an Institute Honor Award for Architecture by the American Institute of Architects  and features a distinctive architectural style. The building's roof serves as a viewpoint for the Salt Lake Valley. The Utah State Capitol Building offers marble floors and a dome similar to the building that houses the U.
The Olympic Legacy Plaza, at The Gateway, features a dancing fountain set to music and the names of 30, Olympic volunteers carved in stone. The Utah Olympic Park , near Park City, features the Olympic ski jumps , as well as bobsleigh , luge , and skeleton runs. Today, the Olympic Park is used for year-round training and competitions. Visitors can watch the various events and even ride a bobsled. The Utah Olympic Oval , in nearby Kearns , was home to the speed skating events and is now open to the public.
The resorts cater to millions of visitors each year and offer year-round activities. Salt Lake City is also home to a few major shopping centers. Trolley Square is an indoor and outdoor mall with many independent art boutiques, restaurants, and national retailers.
The buildings housing the shops are renovated trolley barns with cobblestone streets. The Gateway, an outdoor shopping mall, has many national restaurants, clothing retailers, a movie theater, the Clark Planetarium , the Discovery Gateway formerly The Children's Museum of Utah , a music venue called The Depot, and the Olympic Legacy Plaza.
City Creek Center is the city's newest major shopping center and features many high-end retailers not found anywhere else in Utah.

They are the only team from one of the four top-level professional sports leagues in the state.

Until the —12 season, they both played in the Mountain West Conference of the NCAA's Division I and have played each other 90 times since continuously since Despite undefeated seasons in both and , Utah was not invited to participate in the national championship in either season because it was a member of the Mountain West Conference, a BCS non-AQ conference.

SR extends to the western Salt Lake City suburbs. Travel to and from Davis County is complicated by geography as roads have to squeeze through the narrow opening between the Great Salt Lake to the west and the Wasatch Mountains to the east. Only four roads run between the two counties to carry the load of rush hour traffic from Davis County. Salt Lake City's surface street system is laid out on a simple grid pattern.
Road names are numbered with a north, south, east, or west designation, with the grid originating at the southeast corner of Temple Square downtown. One of the visions of Brigham Young and the early settlers was to create wide, spacious streets, which characterizes downtown. The grid pattern remains fairly intact in the city, except on the East Bench, where geography makes it impossible. The entire Salt Lake Valley is laid out on the same numbered grid system, although it becomes increasingly irregular further into the suburbs.
Many streets carry both a name and a grid coordinate. Usually both can be used as an address. US enters the city from the northwest and travels the length of the valley as State Street with the exception of northern Salt Lake City. Intercity services are provided by Amtrak and various intercity bus lines.

Salt Lake City is widely considered a bicycle-friendly city. Many streets in the city have bike lanes , and the city has published a bicycle map. The website includes a form for business owners to request bicycle racks to be installed on public property free of charge close to their businesses, a service that has a months-long waiting list. Salt Lake City was the first city in the United States to use the "Green Shared Lane", also known as a "super sharrow",  a 4-foot 1.
These four cities are participating in a study by the Federal Highway Administration to measure the effect of the design on automobile speed and passing distance when overtaking bicycles, crashes between automobiles and bicycles, and whether it encourages more bicycle ridership, along with other metrics. The BTC is anticipated to serve multi-modal commuters from TRAX and FrontRunner , as well as providing a secure bicycle parking space for bicycle tourists who want to tour the city on foot or transit. As a result of this increasing support, Salt Lake City's on-road bikeway network has grown to encompass lane miles.
In July , the city began construction of a protected bicycle lane on a 1. The construction proceeded in stages, with the last stage completed in late October The performance of the protected bicycle lane specifically, its role in encouraging more bicycle ridership will influence future plans for making the city more bicycle-friendly.
