Yes believe it or not we do have casino’s they are not exactly in Utah but just across the border. The city of Wendover is half Utah and half Nevada. It is a place where you can go have the excitement of Las Vegas mini style. They have four casinos and splendid accommodations. I love this place it is just the right size, and they have one deck 21! Where do you find that …
It is just an hour and a half away from Salt Lake City, in fact, when coming to stay with us; you can catch a bus that will take you to this destination. Very inexpensive and the bus pass will give you a free buffet once you get there.
They also have Peppermill Concert Hall where a lot of great talent preforms Friday and Saturday nights.
While going that direction (right before you get to Wendover) is the Bonneville Salt Flats. One of the most famous areas for breaking the speed record – Bonneville Speedway it is located in the western portion of the flats, near Wendover. It is perfectly flat and has a thick crust of salty soil. It looks like a frozen lake bed covered with snow. No vegetation grows in that area.
The Speedway offers an ideal environment for automobile, and motorcycle speed trials. It is perfectly flat and has a naturally stable surface composted of salty soil. It has been used for serious speed events since the early 1900s.
