  • We were traveling through & happened to see sign & we turned to go see.. Unbelievable looking at this.. Looks like snow on a hot day! Pretty neat to see! 
  • We couldn't spend in the region without making a detour to the Mecca of speed. We were only rolling on this huge expanse of salt. The sunset was great and quiet breath

  • We went in the afternoon yesterday (9/11/2016 Sunday). It takes about 2 hrs from Salt Lake City. We missed the race, but place is amazing. It was a bit cloudy but Sun tried to come out frequently from...  read more »
  • Idiotic! Never even got to go because after looking for a contact phone # from the Bonneville Motorcycle Speed Weeks 2016 website, and finding none(!!), I called all over the area and nobody would or could answer, or us call back! Even the nice SCTA (cars) lady knew nothing about the bikes and she knew no one I could call. The crappy online schedule for the bikes tells nothing about who'll be running when. Zero details at all. For example, when would Guy Martin be attempting his 400mph record? Are faster classes on certain days? And who starts a race week on a weekend and ends it on a weekday? We could only attend for 2 days and NO WAY would we travel 2000 miles to stand on the salt and not see the fastest bikes. Such frustration! Get a cell # already!!!
  • IDK why this place isn't advertised much but IMO it should be on the must-see list for any SLC visitor. It has the un-earthy atmosphere and definitely one of most unusual sceneries you can see.
  • Great place to pitch a tent after a storm. Walk out onto the water and find some high ground. When you wake up you'll have one of the best mornings you've ever see.
  • This is one of those "bucket list" spots that is worth a visit if only to say that you've been there. But be aware: the salt flats are often underwater (as they were during my late May visit) and can only be driven on during a couple months in late summer. When underwater or wet, the flats can actually be dangerous since your vehicle can get stuck.
  • If you're visiting SLC, you've got to check out the salt flats. Only a handful of places in the world with this landscape. Check out their website in advance if you want to see a race as well!
