Salt Lake City

Salt Lake City is excited for AASL!

As the conference gets closer, events and offerings will be added. AASL will also include opportunities for conference goers to connect with others who are looking for some sightseeing companions! You can keep up to date on the happenings in SLC with this page custom built for AASL21 from Visit Salt Lake.

Nestled on the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, and overlooking the largest inland lake in the western US, Salt Lake is home to a pioneering past, and an exciting future. But don’t let the proximity to mountains, outdoor recreation, and 5 National Parks distract you from the thriving urban heart that is beating in the Salt Lake Valley.

From a top-shelf performing arts scene, to award-winning diningcraft beer, and distilling culture, and the surprising-to-most fact that Salt Lake is reported as having one of the highest LGBTQ populations in the nation, you’ll get a sense of how this Old West town has become a forward-thinking, and burgeoning urban hub.

Whether you’re coming to see the beautiful LDS Temple Square, see the Utah Jazz play a game, sample the award winning gastronomic scene, see a broadway play, or take in the amazing mountain backdrop, Salt Lake will surprise you with the amount of things to do, places to see, and ways to connect.
