The Sandlot Fan's Guide to Utah
Relive the nostalgia of "The Sandlot," with visits to filming locations around Salt Lake plus some other kid-inspired stops to make your own memories.
It's hard to believe that it's been 30 years since "You're killing me, Smalls" joined the canon of iconic cinema quotes. For many, it probably still seems like just yesterday that Benny "The Jet" took on the Beast, "Ham" Porter gave a pointed lesson in s'more making, or Scotty Smalls finally learned who Ruth was. That's because even after a few decades, "The Sandlot" still maintains much of its nostalgic glow.
Set in California's San Fernando Valley in the summer of 1962, many of the pivotal scenes from "The Sandlot" were actually shot right here in Utah. Within an hour of Salt Lake City, you'll find instantly-recognizable locations where you can relive the magic of this childhood classic. Just remember to pack a baseball so you can pitch your own heaters while on location.
We've also added on some fun, family-friendly itinerary attractions from Midvale to Ogden, including Lagoon Amusement Park, George S. Eccles Dinosaur Park and a Salt Lake Bees game.
