Salt Lake City

'''Salt Lake City''', often shortened to '''Salt Lake''', or '''SLC''' is the capital (Capital (political)) and the most populous city in the state of Utah. With an estimated population of 191,180 in 2013, the city lies in the core of the Salt Lake City metropolitan area, which has a total population of 1,140,483 as of the 2013 estimate. Salt Lake City is further situated in a larger urban area known as the Salt Lake City-Provo-Ogden, UT Combined Statistical Area (Salt Lake City metropolitan area#Combined Statistical Area). This region is a corridor of contiguous urban and suburban development stretched along an approximate It is one of only two major urban areas in the Great Basin (the other being Reno, Nevada), and the largest in the Intermountain West.

The city was founded in 1847 by Brigham Young, Isaac Morley, George Washington Bradley and several other Mormon (Mormons) followers, who extensively irrigated and cultivated the arid valley. Due to its proximity to the Great Salt Lake, the city was originally named "Great Salt Lake City"—the word "great" was dropped from the official name in 1868 by the 17th Utah Territorial Legislature.

Immigration of international LDS members, mining booms (Mining), and the construction of the first transcontinental railroad (First Transcontinental Railroad) initially brought economic growth, and the city was nicknamed the Crossroads of the West. It was traversed by the Lincoln Highway, the first transcontinental highway, in 1913, and presently two major cross-country freeways, I-15 (Interstate 15) and I-80 (Interstate 80), intersect in the city. Salt Lake City has since developed a strong outdoor recreation (outdoor activity) tourist industry based primarily on skiing, and hosted the 2002 Winter Olympics. It is the industrial banking (industrial loan company) center of the United States.
