Hertz Car Hire in Salt Lake City

Salt Lake City has always done things its own way. Sitting in a valley, Utah’s main city has a unique feel and vibe that sets it apart from many other American capitals. Head back less than a couple of hundred years and there was nothing here, before Brigham Young and 148 other settlers founded the Church of Latter Day Saints here – more commonly known as the Mormons.

That’s not the whole story, however. There’s a thriving arts community here, fascinating insights into the pioneer period, winter sports to be enjoyed nearby and a foodie scene that’s come on leaps and bounds in recent years. Once you arrive, we’ll quickly get you into your choice of car so that you can head out and explore this quirky city. Browse our collections online and pay in advance or when you pick-up. Either way, hiring a car in Salt Lake City is the best way to see all there is to see.

Driving in and around Salt Lake City

Like many US hubs, Salt Lake City has expanded with the coming of the automobile, and has an extensive road network that makes navigating your way around  relatively straightforward. That’s even more true for the state of Utah as a whole, a place that seems to be in widescreen. This is one of the big states with their foot in America’s pioneer past – hemmed in by Wyoming, Colorado, Nevada and Idaho.

Interstate roads link up Salt Lake City with the rest of Utah – the vast expanses of desert mean that you won’t find the B-road routes that you do in many more verdant American states. Here, as in the rest of the US, you’ll need to drive on the right side of the road, overtaking on the left. Seat belts are essential for all and, as at home, mobile phone use while driving is illegal. One more major difference – if the way is clear, you can make right turns on red lights here. Speed limits vary, with a top limit of 75 to 80mph on interstates (it will be signposted), 65 to 70mph on state highways and 30mph in urban areas.

Three interstates serve Salt Lake City itself. The I-15 runs north to south through the very centre, the I-80 intersects with it and leads west, while the I-215 almost works as a ring-road. Much of the city operates on a grid system – easy to get around once you have your head around it. Streets aren’t named for the direction they run, but rather their position in relation to the centre of the city, which is Temple Square. The junction of 300 north, 400 west is north-west of the heart. 300 south, 400 east, south-east.

A quick guide to Salt Lake City

car-hire-salt-lake-city

Salt Lake City is a very friendly place, with echoes of the quaint small town it was originally settled as. Yet it’s position, low-rise buildings, winter sports (it hosted the 2002 Winter Olympics) and rapidly improving restaurant scene have made it an increasingly popular holiday destination for visitors from the US and beyond. Those with a passion for getting outdoors will adore the fresh air and the peaks that beckon in the near distance.

Mid-town Mormons

Visiting the major Mormon sights of the City of the Saints is incredible. The elders of the church will happily guide you around Temple Square and answer your questions. The temple itself, built over 40 years and completed in 1893, isn’t open to tourists, but there’s an informative visitor’s centre. One Mormon landmark for music-lovers is the Tabernacle, a vast 19th century dome with world-renowned acoustics, suitable for the equally famed Mormon Tabernacle Choir, who you can see in free public rehearsals every Thursday evening.

Utah’s distant past

The Natural History Museum here is truly world class, with an utterly stunning exterior that houses some spectacular exhibits, most notably of dinosaur fossils. The Rio Tinto Center is in harmony with its surroundings in the Wasatch Mountain Range, trimmed with locally-mined copper. The bands of it mimic the local rock formations, and this canyon feel extends inside. You can arrange to have an expert give you a tour, with unique insights making this a must. In addition to the dinosaurs, you’ll also find wonderfully curated exhibitions of insects, minerals, plants and Native American artifacts in the anthropology section.

Salt and seasoning

The hikers and skiers who come to Salt Lake City for the mountain thrills nearby, nicknamed ‘The Greatest Snow on Earth,’ have also been won over the city’s new appetite for great grub. The foodie revolution here has been through a mixture of markets, food trucks, artisan coffee roasters, craft breweries and superb new restaurant openings.

On Saturday mornings from June to October, head to Downtown Farmers Market at Pioneer Park. Fresh local fruit, cheese and honey vie for space with takeaway food trucks, with almost 200 stalls. The pioneering Copper Onion was one of the first new breed of SLC restaurants and serves up pork belly with apricot-ancho chili glaze and a perfect Wagyu beef stroganoff. For seafood, Current Fish and Oyster has caramelised salmon, an Asian-influenced fish stew and, best of all, a ‘seafood tower’. With 18 oysters, mussels, lobster and shrimp, it’s a feast for pescatarians.

Confident, clean and packed with history, Salt Lake City is a place full of surprises for visitors. Car hire in Salt Lake City will make it easy for you to see everything in this fine city and then venture out into the wild beauty of rugged Utah.
