Salt Lake City Skyline from The Living Room Lookout Trail

Arrival Date: 2019-03-02

Departure Date: 2019-03-23

Campground/RV Park: Salt Lake City KOA

Reason for Visit: Came back to pick up the trailer, do some skiing at “The Bird” and see our friends the Careys.

Cool Spots:

  • The Living Room Lookout Trail: A moderately challenging < 3 mi trail with a decent view of SLC. Dogs are allowed on leash although most people did not have their dogs on a leash when we were there.

Good Places to Work:

Good Restaurants

  • Same Sushi: Quality sushi at a very reasonable price and no wait on a Saturday night.

  • Tonkatsu Ramen: Solid Ramen with decent atmosphere. Huge $5 California roll that was pretty good.

  • Ramen 930: We liked this one better than Tonkatsu Ramen although the atmosphere leaves something to be desired.

  • Ramen Bar: Much better ambiance than Tonkatsu Ramen and Ramen 930 with great service but a limited menu.

  • Corelife Eatery: A fast-casual “healthy” restaurant with bowls, salads, etc. It was really good. Great spot for lunch.

  • Takashi: Fantastic sushi. Some of the best we’ve ever had. BE PREPARED TO WAIT. We got there at 5pm for opening at 5:30pm so we wouldn’t have to wait 1-2 hours.
