Salt Lake City Things to Do: 218 reviews and 374 photos
The University of Utah and the area surrounding it has its own distinct character. Catering to the students there are classic eateries such as the Pie Pizzaria. Here are arts and science museums and concert halls, stadiums and basketball arenas. There is a sense of energy here that higher learning always seems to bring out.
The University keeps expanding. The original "U" on 3rd south and just east of 13th east has the old and grand buildings, the Park Administration building, the original library then Natural History Museum and now slated for renovation; the Gardner Music Hall and Kingsbury Hall where concerts are held.
A little south is Pioneer Theater and Rice Eccles Stadium. In the middle is the newly renovated Marriott Library and the Fine Arts Museum.
The U extends now up to the foothills taking over where the Old Fort Douglas was originally. Red Butte Garden and the new Museum of Natural History will be found at the southeastern end.
On the east bench are also located the University Hospital, Primary Children's Hospital, Huntsman Cancer Institute, Moran Eye Center, Utah Diabetes Center and research and clinic support.
