A vacation in the Salt Lake City area wouldn’t be complete without a visit to Utah Olympic Park. Built for the 2002 Winter Olympic Games, the Utah Olympic Park hosted 77 nations and 2,500 Olympians. Today it not only serves as a training center for Olympic-level events and aspiring athletes, but it’s also a popular tourist destination. After soaking up some sun on the lake with Jordanelle Rentals & Marina, make the 20- minute trip up to the Olympic Park, and spend the day exploring the place where dreams came true in 2002.
