Sandy, Utah is located at the base of the Wasatch Mountains and is 13 miles from Salt Lake City and it is believed that this area was used by the Pauite, Shoshone and Bannock, American Indians. Brigham Young named it "Sandy City" for it's thirsty soil. But in the beginning, instead of agricultural areas, the focus of businessmen was the mining of copper. Today, Sandy is a bustling city for commuters into Salt Lake City. If you are coming into the airport, it is probably a good idea to stay at a hotel in Sandy that offers shuttle service. A taxi will cost at least $40.00 to your Sandy destination. There is the TRAX light rail into Salt Lake City which costs $8.00 one way and there are three rail stations. Hotels range from $89.99 to $399.00, depending on your preference and most hotels offer full breakfasts and plenty of activities. It is 13 miles to Hogle Zoo which has an entrance charge of $20.00 but it is well worth it to see all the sophistocated animal enclosures and the new baby African elephant. But of course, it is the best place to stay for skiers, only 14 miles to world class skiing at Alta, Brighton, Snowbird and Solitude. Lift tickets are $55.00 a day and there are all levels of skilled ski runs. Wintertime stays at the beautiful and functionable ski resorts make for delightful pictures and memories. South Towne shoppig center offers cinemas and unique shops.
