What To Do on Sunday in SLC

We’ve all heard the ongoing chant “but nothing is open Sunday!” And to be honest, there’s some truth to that… but that doesn’t mean you’re completely at a loss for places to go if church isn’t your thing. In fact, sometimes it’s the best day to roam around, free of crowds! So here’s some of our favorite places in Salt Lake City that ARE open on Sunday. Go crazy:

Eat some pub food at Squatters Pub Brewery (147 W. 300 South, SLC)
Most bars and clubs are open on Sunday, including the iconic Squatters downtown.

Lounge around at Undercurrent (270 S. 300 East, SLC)
Another favorite bar! Pair a nuanced cocktail with a chef’s dozen oysters, make it a Sunday ritual.

Go to a Bees Game (Smith’s Ballpark, 77 W. 1300 South, SLC)
See our guide on how to enjoy one here.

Take a Hike
Literally. Breathe some fresh air (since less cars are clogging it up on Sunday). Check out our top 10 hikes in Salt Lake City here!

Watch a movie at Broadway Theater (111 E. 300 South, SLC)
Sunday is the perfect day to go see a movie and not have the theater be crowded with screaming children. This is the prime time to see a blockbuster or family movie with a little more legroom and a little less crying three-year-olds.

Check out Liberty Park
Grab a book and a blanket and go enjoy some sun in Salt Lake’s best park. If you’re up for more of an activity, Liberty Park has sand volleyball, tennis courts, a playground for the kids, and paddle boats to rent. Don’t forget to check out the Tracy Aviary & Botanical Gardens and grab a coffee and bite to eat at their Bird Feeder Cafe.

Note: If you’re looking for a winter activity, it’s the best place to go sledding in Salt Lake!

Lose yourself in Ikea (67 Ikea Way, Draper)
You can have the fake couches all to yourself!

Try a Drag Brunch
Let your hair down and enjoy some fantastic food and mimosas at these local Drag Brunch spots: Why Kiki (69 W. 100 South, SLC), The Cabin Queens (The Cabin, 427 Main St., PC) and The Exchange by Twist (32 Exchange PL., SLC). The Drag Brunches are from 11:00am to 3:00pm, so bring your friends and just have a good time!

Go Thrifting
If you’re a frequenter of secondhand stores, Sunday is undeniably the best day to call dibs on racks of clothing at a time without fighting any crowds. Three of our favorites are iconoClad, (more contemporary) the perfect place to go rave shopping at, Decades (totally vintage) offers a range of funky women’s clothes, and Pib’s Exchange, half costume store, half second hand store.

Ask a ton of questions at Discovery Gateway (444 W. 100 South, SLC)
Have kids? Rest assured that Discovery Gateway will answer all of the “why” questions your offspring (and you) can think up.

Try a climb
The perfect way to feel a whole new kind of pain and discover muscles you never knew you had. The Front Climbing Club (1450 S. 400 West, SLC) is one of the best and offers yoga, weights, cardio, and personal training as well. If you’re looking for something more modern check out the Bouldering Project (660 S 400 West, SLC). Lastly, if you want the best top rope gym, you have to check out Momentum Climbing Gym (3173 E. 3300 South, SLC).

Go to a Farmer’s Market
People’s Market has an annual 9th West Farmers Market, from mid-June to mid-October, open from 10:00am to 3:00pm every Sunday! See our guide to all of Salt Lake and Park City’s Farmers Markets here.

Go to the Library (210 E. 400 South, SLC)
Ok so, it’s not a crazy nightclub or the best party of your life. We know, we know. But if you’re an introvert or a book-lover, we can’t recommend it enough. There’s something magical about quietly hunting down a book on the endless shelves of books you didn’t know existed. Plus, there’s a rush of emotion every time you realize you don’t have to pay for the books. You can just waltz out of there with a stack of novels and nobody will blink an eye. What a thrill!

Note: it’s only open from 1PM-5PM on Sundays, so hustle.
