Layton is one of the fastest-growing cities in Utah. Situated between Antelope Island, Salt Lake City, and the Wasatch backs, Layton has plenty of places to go for nature lovers and family outings.
There are countless hiking trails both in and around Layton including the gorgeous Adams Canyon Waterfall. Being next to the Great Salt Lake, you can visit the Great Salt Lake Shorelands Preserve where you can learn about the surrounding wetlands, watch birds from their observatory tower, or go on a mile-long walking path where you may see some local fauna. Inside Layton Hills Mall is Sea Quest, an interactive aquarium with animals from around the world and brilliant aquariums to see a wide range of aquatic creatures. The Local Surf and Swim is a large tidal pool, and with a blown-up bubble, the water can be enjoyed all year round.
