On our way home, we spent a night in Salt Lake City. We arrived during lunchtime so we went to City Creek Center. It is a nice shopping center with a retractable roof. The air conditioning was appreciated, yet there was still an “outdoor” feel.
We split a couple of sandwiches at Bocata, which is located in the food court. The freshly baked pita pocket bread was so good! The kids were not too fond of the fillings, so they just had Chick-Fil-A.
There was a cool river running through the mall, with live fish!
After lunch we walked around Temple Square a little bit, but it was warm so we did not last long.
We checked into the Fairfield Inn Suites, which was our nicest place to stay during our entire trip. Thank you Marriott Rewards!
Our n can still sleep anywhere!
For dinner, we ate at Oh Mai. It was a cute Vietnamese-American place, and the food was really good, with large portions. It was a bit warm and stuffy, though.
I did not realize that Utah is the “Beehive” state.
After dinner, we stopped by the hotel lobby and grabbed our free coffee and cookies. I think this is also when we watched a few too many episodes of Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.
