If it's been a while since you visited The Gateway, you may be pleasantly suprised. Many of the longstanding entertainment venues are flourishing - you can see a concert at The Depot or watch a movie at Megaplex Theaters - but there are also new attractions popping up throughout Salt Lake's open-air mall. You can watch nationally-known comedians at Wiseguys Comedy Club or test your skills in the Mystery Escape Room. Utah's first Dave and Buster's arcade and restaurant is scheduled to open at the Gateway next month.
The Gateway has plenty to offer families, too. The Clark Planetarium is a great way for older kids to explore the mysteries of space, while youngsters can enjoy hands-on learning at the Discovery Gateway children's museum. There's even a giant splash pad at the north end of the mall, perfect for cooling off in warmer weather.
Hungry? The Gateway has seven restaurants, a food court and specialty treat and beverage shops. You can also stop by the Olympic Legacy Plaza Monday-Friday between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. to enjoy "Food Trucks at the Fountain".
With so much to do and see at The Gateway, you won't want to waste your time getting stuck in traffic or searching for a parking spot. You can ride UTA to Planetarium Station, located on the east side of the mall. Planetarium Station is located within UTA's Free Fare Zone, so there's no need to buy a ticket if you're coming from another downtown location.
