Salt Lake City International Airport Car Rental

Salt Lake City International Airport is the largest airport in the state of Utah and is a major gateway to the Mountain West region of the United States.

The state of Utah has five national parks — Arches, Bryce Canyon, Canyonlands, Capitol Reef, and Zion National Parks. All of them are located in the southern part of the state. There are also a plethora of national forests, state parks, and national monuments. Needless to say, Utah has an abundance of stunning natural attractions to visit.
