Salt Lake City

Walkable food and drinks

The conference is located downtown where there are many bars and restaurants, but I'll point out some that will be most useful.

Sights to see

A few blocks North of the conference hotel, for a longer walk, is a park named Memory Grove where you'll get to see dogs and can decompress.

The trails behind Memory Grove extend for hundreds of miles so if you're feeling adventurous you can run all the way up to Idaho along the trail system, but a more reasonable route would be to head uphill to the Utah State Capitol Building, and you can continue from there to Ensign Peak. Getting a ride to the Ensign Peak trail head and hiking up that (less than a mile total out and back) is great way see the city and get some exercise. The trailhead is only about a mile from the hotel, but is at a much higher elevation, so catching a ride is appropriate unless you want to climb 1,000 ft of vert.
