Downtown SLC

I've always been a big fan of downtown Salt Lake City, Utah. 

It's just great fun. The buildings are interesting to look at, there are so many fun shops and the Off Broadway Theater (OBT) is one of my favorite places.

I could just walk around the area for hours and never get bored. Heck, I've done so countless times.

While hanging out with my cousins this weekend, we didn't get to spend as much time exploring downtown as I would have liked (Parking was way too expensive) but it was still nice to see the trees in bloom and enjoy the lovely day.

We hit up a great little restaurant called Cafe Med (which is actually a ways from downtown, but worth the drive). It looks like a total dive from the outside, but the food is great! Mmm Greek food.

I ordered the Salmon Sandwich. I almost died went to awesome food heaven. 

The four of us bought tickets to our favorite Improv group, Laughing Stock at the OBT.

Have you ever been to see one of their shows? It's two hours of hilarity. Symptoms include sore, cramped sides, watering eyes and bruises on the arms from the many elbow nudges and "did you just see his Beyonce impression?!"s.

It's a great show! And very affordable! Everyone that is looking for entertainment in the Salt Lake City area should definitely look into one of their shows.

It was a very enjoyable day.

Awesome pictures! You didn't mention the traffic - must be because you live in Vegas and you're used to it. I always come home so relieved to be out of the traffic. It is a beautiful city with a lot to offer. Glad you had fun.
