  • The drive along the salt flats was unique, truly interesting. There are numerous places where people have put gass bottels into the ground or sculptures or rocks spelling words and forming shapes. It ...  more »
  • Lots of cool events, and much more than a race track. The Salt Flats are incredibly scenic, see them in person and you'll understand why it seems like half of the commercials on TV use film or shots f...  more »
  • My parents stopped here when I was a little girl because we were huge race fans. Not sure how much use this area receives any more regarding that venue, but it was a nice stop that wasn't much out of ...  more »

  • WRONG LOCATION. Take exit 4 off 1-80. This takes you to the rest area west bound. It had rained the days leading up to our arrival so the road leading onto the flats was closed, but the view from the parking lot alone is stunning. Home on the Bonneville Speedway way and film Location of hits like Independence Day and Con air, this is a must see!!
  • Such an amazing place!!!!! Even though it's technically just a slab of salt, it's so much fun! Especially amazing to get out there for the sunrise/sunset. If you're driving by, I would definitely recommend stopping, even if it's just for a few minutes
  • Really cool place to stop and stretch the legs. Both sides of the freeway have restrooms and foot wash stations. East bound side has a tower that you can go up on and get a pretty good view of everything around you but, I feel, the West bound side is the better stop. West bound is more of the actual "Flats" where you can walk out what seems like forever. Wendover is a short drive away where there is food, gas and hotels. Better in the spring but each season has it's perks
  • We went in early June and it was magical! Out of this world. It hurts to walk on the salt barefoot, though. So bring some sort of beach slippers. Also, the drive from Salt Lake City is an experience in itself. The horizon gets blurry so it looks like you are driving into nothingness.
  • Amazing place if you want to get some stunning sunset shots. It was a long drive, but it was worth it. If you go in the fall/winter make sure you bundle up. It gets pretty cold.
