Get to Know Salt Lake City
At Gordon Jensen Trucking and Storage, one of our favorite things to do is help people move to Salt Lake City. Of course, as a family owned trucking company, we also provide other services. We do a lot of shipping and storage, for example. And we do help people move away. But we love it here in SLC, and we're always pleased to show off our hometown to newcomers.
So, let's really pull up the welcome wagon. SLC has tons of perks and advantages that we're pleased to share with you. It will take you a while to get acclimated, of course. You'll develop your own local favorites over time.
But for now, here are some great local tips
After the lake we're named for, the mountains are our most impressive physical feature. There's something to do there during every season. If you love hiking, you'll love SLC. The Ensign Peak trail is fairly easy, and it gives you a great view of the State Capitol building. Other hikes lead you directly to scenic waterfalls. During the winter months, we pride ourselves on the quality of our powder. That's right: Colorado has nothing on our snow! We're a paradise for skiers and snowboarders.
This is also a great place for people who love the performing arts. Everyone has heard of the Sundance Film Festival, of course. But did you know Salt Lake City offers free films in parks on Friday nights? This is a great way to spend some quality time with friends and family. SLC is also home to plenty of up-and-coming bands. Acts that have come out of the city in recent years include The Brobecks, Sub Rosa and Wilford Brimley. Whether you love country, pop, alt-rock or metal, there's something here for you. And of course, the Mormon Tabernacle Choir is world-famous for a reason. There's great religious music coming from SLC, too.
The food in Salt Lake City is pretty great too
Ruth's Diner is a local legend. It's been in business since 1930, and offers standard diner fare and some more dressed-up options. Our great donut shops include Banbury Cross, Darla's and the Big O. And if you're looking for something a little more upscale for dinner, try Bambara, Caffe Molise or the Roof Restaurant.
Welcome to Salt Lake City, from Gordon Jensen Trucking and Storage. We're always here for your storage and moving needs.
