City Creek Center opened in 2012 next to historic Temple Square and Salt Palace Convention Center in downtown Salt Lake City. It is home to more than 100 shops and restaurants.
The center includes a retractable roof that allows for a year-round shopping experience, pedestrian skybridge, two 18-foot-tall waterfalls, fountains and a reproduction of the south fork of City Creek — which once flowed through the area. Its namesake City Creek Canyon is just a few miles away.
Located just 10 minutes from the Salt Lake City International Airport, City Creek Center is popular with out of town visitors. Its Passport to Shopping program offers special discounts to visitors from over 50 miles away (stop by the customer service desk for more details). The center is open Monday through Saturday from 11 a.m. until 8 p.m. (some store hours may vary) and closed on Sundays. You can reach customer service at (801) 521-2012 with any questions.
