Utah became a center of railroad-building activity after the meeting of the Union Pacific and the Central Pacific railroads at Promontory Point on May 10, 1869. With the coming of the railroad and the development of mining, Utah’s economy underwent significant changes. Salt Lake City became a banking and investment center for mining and railroad-connected business activities. Ogden became the livestock shipping center of the West. Today, the state’s major commercial centers are located in the populated area centered on Salt Lake City and stretching from Ogden in the north to Provo in the south. Salt Lake City International Airport is a hub for Delta Airlines.

Tourist Industry


Utah’s major tourist season is summer, with most visitors stopping at Salt Lake City and at Bryce and Zion national parks. Autumn brings large numbers of hunters from neighboring states. Winter brings sports enthusiasts to the state’s many ski resorts. Increasingly, tourists are making their way to less-visited areas of the state, including Glen Canyon; Flaming Gorge; and Arches, Canyonlands, and Capitol Reef national parks.
