We were staying in Salt Lake City and took a drive to Antelope Island. It’s a scenic drive of Salt Lake and we were able to tune to the suggested radio station and learn while we drove. We saw lots of bison.

Let's face it. You just cant visit Salt Lake City without paying a visit to the Great Salt Lake. Take the time to drive out and enjoy a piece of history. You won't be disappointed!

I'm not really sure what wildlife there is to see here. The park itself is pretty small, and other than some birds, I didn't see much of anything other than the lake while there.

Hi, huiling s. I went to Antelope Island last July. I doubt that you can get to Antelope Island by public transportation. It is about one hour and forty minutes' drive north of Salt Lake City. You have to get out to Antelope... More
