Something To Suit Every Taste
Guests of Little America are in the perfect location to take advantage of everything the city has to offer. Excellent shopping is available within minutes of the hotel, and is easily accessible on foot, by car, or on Trax light rail.
Salt Lake City is home to wonderful shopping opportunities to suit any interest. The city's selection of specialty retailers, art galleries, and malls gives visitors yet another exciting choice of things to do in Salt Lake City at any time of year.
City Creek Center, in the heart of Salt Lake City, is just a short walk or Trax ride away. The retail centerpiece of one of the nation’s largest mixed-use downtown redevelopment projects, this unique shopping environment features a retractable glass roof, a creek that runs through the property, a pedestrian sky bridge, and more. Over 90 stores and restaurants, including Nordstrom, Macy’s, Tiffany &Co, Michael Kors, Coach, and Texas de Brazil Churrascaria, make City Creek Center a world class fashion and dining destination in a casual, pedestrian-friendly environment.
Two downtown area malls—the Gateway Mall and Trolley Square Mall—provide shopping and dining at over 400 specialty shops, department stores, and restaurants, including such notables as Pottery Barn, Restoration Hardware, Williams-Sonoma, Abercrombie & Fitch, and J. Crew.
Across town, antique lovers can browse through an interesting variety of antiques and collectibles in Salt Lake City's Antique District, located on Broadway (300 South) between 200 East and 400 East. The ever-changing selection means there's always a chance of uncovering a treasure. And since the stores are happy to pack and ship for you, don't hesitate to grab that perfect Chippendale dresser!
Sam Weller's Zion Bookstore is a must stop if you're a bibliophile. One of Salt Lake City's oldest independent bookstores, it has an old bookstore feel with (uncluttered) wall-to-wall books. Their rare book section and coffee bar ensures a comfortable morning or afternoon's browsing. More happy hours of book browsing can be had at The Golden Braid or Deseret Books, as well as the usual large chain bookstores.
If you yearn for a kinder, gentler time before email and texting, locally-owned Tabula Rasa Stationers in nearby Trolley Square Mall offers beautiful fountain pens, inks, sealing waxes and leather bound journals. Also check out the local small art galleries in the Pierpont District for handmade papers and cards.
A little further afield, but definitely worth the trip, is a day's excursion to Park City. Park City's Main Street is a shopper's paradise of boutique stores and art galleries. The Tanger Outlet Center is located a few miles outside of Park City and offers deep discounts on over 60 brand name outlets.
Of course, no trip to Salt Lake would be complete without checking out the unique merchandise in Little America’s own Retail Shops, located in the lobby. With five different stores offering everything from clothing to fine gifts to souvenirs, you will be sure to find something special for yourself or a loved one.
