nature, use what you have

A day downtown.

One of my favorite things to do is to “play tourist” in my own town. Last week I took a day to go to the “big city” and play tourist downtown so I could take photos for a BlogPaws post.
First on my to do list was a visit to the new City Creek Center, which was amazing. Even the parking garage was impressive! Even though I didn’t buy anything, it was such a nice place to walk around.

The space is seriously huge, I didn’t even see all of it, and of course the fountains were really pretty. While I didn’t actually see it, the fountains are supposed to put on a show at certain times of the day, and they were designed by the same people who did the Bellagio!

Another thing that was impressive (aside from all the high end shopping like Tiffany’s) was the way the space was designed for just being in and enjoying. There were a lot of spaces to sit, and tons of pretty water features to look at. A small creek runs through the shopping center, and there are parts where you can see small waterfalls. There are even some kenectic sculptures.

It’s a great place to visit and I look forward to going back, especially because they have The Cheesecake Factory there! I would love to see it at night too, I bet it looks totally different!

Do you enjoy playing tourist in your own city? Or cities close to you? Stay tuned for part two!
