If you are planning a trip to Salt Lake City there are a number of different places that you should consider visiting. While there are some fantastic attractions throughout the Salt Lake City area, there are definitely some big places that you should avoid because of safety concerns as well as simple inconvenience. Here are some of the worst places to visit in Salt Lake City.

The Liquor Store
Utah is a dry state and this means you won't be able to find beer or liquor in many of the grocery stores or variety stores where you would normally pick it up. Unfortunately, this means that when you want some liquor, your options are more limited. Two main liquor stores service all of Salt Lake City and this means that you should expect longer lines, especially on weekends.

The Great Salt Lake
While it can be fun to float in the Great Salt Lake, which is 75 miles long and 35 miles wide, it is notoriously smelly and you can smell as a result of swimming in it. It is a fun experience but make sure you shower soon afterwards.

This is a community with the highest unemployment rate and highest crime rate in all of Utah. If you purchase a house here or stay here you have a 1 in 24 chance of your home or car being broken into.

South Salt Lake
Not only does this area have one of the highest murder rates in all of Salt Lake City but you have a 1 in 15 chance of being robbed just by visiting this area.
