Back by popular demand for one last time. Last Wednesday evening 22 people joined us and had a blast!

I always try to do this event twice each year, so this will be our last time for this year. If you came last week, please come again!

6:30 - 9 pm

Our Downtown Night Walk event has been held every year since December 2003.

If you are not familiar with Downtown Salt Lake City during the month of December, you are in for a treat!

It's a happening place at night - with all of the Christmas lights, water fountains, waterfalls, etc.

Our walking route is a loop but if you want to join us only for a portion of the walk, its OK.

We walk outside the whole time, approx. 4 - 5 miles total, passing the most festive parts of downtown including (but not in this order):

• City Creek Mall

• Gateway Mall

• Energy Solutions

• Abravanel Hall

• Temple Square

• Conference Center

• Main Street Plaza

• Lion House

• Galavan Center Ice Rink

• KUTV Channel 2

• Main Street Plaza

• & more!

This time I'll hit some of the highlights we missed last week.

We arrive back at Z' Tejas ( between 8:30 - 9 PM

If you like after the hike, join us for a bite to eat i.e. hot bowl of tortilla soup and the best corn bread made fresh at Z'Tejas (, one of my favorite restaurants in SLC, (Southwestern Cuisine). Feel free to buy whatever you'd like. Cornbread is complimentary. Soup w/ tax is around $6

About Downtown Salt Lake City in December

It's one of the prettiest places to be especially at night!

It's safe

It's full of people

It's a great workout with friends

If you choose to cut it short, you can always take TRAX back to your car at Gateway, if you don't want to walk.

We are walking nearly the entire time except to take photos every so often. It's a nice brisk walk.

We always have a good group with this outing. Expect at least 10 - 20 people.

By moving the entire time, you'll stay warm.

RSVP if possible but if you don't know until the last minute, come anyway!
