great salt lake, interviews, resorts, utah
Today, the most famous resorts in northern Utah are in the mountains. But that wasn't always the case. For much of the 20th century people flocked to the shores of Great Salt Lake to spend time swimming, listening to music, dancing, and sunbathing. We'll explore some of the history of those resorts in today's episode, the first of two episodes in which we'll focus on the lake. We begin with Jeff Nichols discussing the history of the lake resorts and their connection to the city. Then we'll have a chance to hear Rebecca Richard talk about her own personal experiences of spending time at the lake in the 1970s.
