As Pioneer Day reminded us, Salt Lake City is “The Place,” but there are plenty of other places to visit in the world. ---

Get your Euros ready

With the world’s attention focused on the London Olympics the next couple of weeks, there are all sorts of steal deals to some of Europe’s best cities out of Salt Lake for under $800, including taxes! Check out fares on to Barcelona, Madrid and Helsinki. Barcelona is one of our all-time favorite places. Gaudi architecture by day, and then everybody going out to dinner at midnight to have a plate of paella and a pitcher of sangria while sitting outdoors in a historic square.

Aloha to Utah

SLC to Maui with a 5-night-stay at the Royal Lahaina Resort is just $1,441.00 per person through Apple Vacations.

ATVs in the Uintas

Those who want to stick closer to home can check out this Groupon offer for The Cabins at Bear River Lodge in the Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest, just a couple of hours east of Salt Lake City. You get two nights and two full days for $399 for a one-bedroom cabin with a jetted tub, full kitchen and outdoor gas grill. From the cabins, you have access to 400 miles of ATV trails.

The Travel Tramps write regularly about their treks near and far in City Weekly, as well as blogging online at You can also listen to Kathleen Curry and Geoff Griffin on the weekly Travel Brigade Radio Show and follow them on Twitter @TravelBrigade.
