Adventure Diary | Salt Lake City | Chapter 1

Salt Lake has been one of my favorite cities growing up. It was the place we could go that seemed to have everything you could ever want. Incredible theatre performances, delicious food, a small city that has so much to offer. I like spending time there whenever I can, so here's a new series that document my Adventures in Salt Lake City series.

It was like she had brought the rain with her. Danielle, my Oregonian childhood best friend, was visiting Utah. What better way to spend a rainy day, than grabbing brunch in my favorite city. The sky was filled with dark clouds spaced with pockets of blue. Our first stop was The Copper Onion, located at 111 East Broadway. I had heard good things about this place and wanted to experience it for myself. We opened the doors to a full house. After being greeted at the door, we were directed though the sea of people to a corner of the room.  We looked over the menu and picked out some of our favorite choices. To be honest, it took a really long time to get our food and our snarky waiter was less than eager to check on us, but the food was fairly good. We ordered the American Breakfast and Eggs Benedict. 

We drove up around the Capitol to Memory Grove Park, a park dedicated to our local war veterans, with monuments built in their honor. We walked around the park visiting each monument and exploring around bridges and trees. It was very beautiful! Each memorial was very beautifully built with intricate designs and details. 

We spent the afternoon walking around the city scoping out coffee shops and bakeries. It's always fun to just wander with your friend, chatting about life, relationships or politics. We always have this ability to just pick up right where we leave off. The city is always a little more quiet on Sundays, but it makes for a relaxing afternoon. Before we headed back, we grabbed coffee with Danielle's friend at Coffee Gardens over on 9th and 9th. It was the perfect atmosphere to share a cup of joe while sharing travel adventures, relationship stories and funny memories. 

To make the most out of any rainy day requires great food and even greater company.  

Thanks for Reading!
Love, Nick
