Top Attractions in Salt Lake County - According to AI

"Artificial Intelligence" is the buzz word of the day. AI refers to a language model that is able to interpret text and produce answers based on a large web crawl.

In this experiment, I will ask AI questions about Utah.

Top Attractions in Salt Lake County by ChatGPT

I asked ChatGPT about the top attractions in "Salt Lake County."

  1. Temple Square: The headquarters of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church) and a significant historic landmark.
  2. Utah Olympic Park: A former Winter Olympics venue offering various activities like ziplining, bobsledding, and ski jumping.
  3. Natural History Museum of Utah: A museum featuring exhibits on Utah's natural history, dinosaurs, and native cultures.
  4. Snowbird Ski and Summer Resort: A popular destination for skiing and snowboarding during winter and outdoor activities like hiking and mountain biking during summer.
  5. Red Butte Garden and Arboretum: A beautiful botanical garden and outdoor concert venue with stunning views of Salt Lake City.
  6. Big Cottonwood Canyon: A scenic canyon offering opportunities for hiking, camping, and exploring nature.
  7. Antelope Island State Park: Located in the Great Salt Lake, this park is home to a diverse range of wildlife, including bison herds, pronghorn antelope, and bird species.
  8. The Hogle Zoo: A zoological park featuring a variety of animals, educational exhibits, and interactive experiences for all ages.
  9. Tracy Aviary: A bird sanctuary housing a diverse collection of avian species from around the world.
  10. Great Salt Lake: A unique natural wonder known for its high salt content, offering recreational activities like swimming, boating, and bird-watching.

ChatGPT made a few mistakes. Antelope Island is in Davis County and the Olympic Park is in Summit County.

It used the definitive article "The" for "The Hogel Zoo" but did not use it for "Great Salt Lake."

I probably would have mentioned all of the ski resorts and I would have said the Wasatch Front instead of just one canyon because all of the canyon's in Salt Lake County are pretty.

Google Bard's Answer:

I will ask the same question of Google Bard. Again, Antelope Island, the Salt Flats and the Olympic Oval are not in Salt Lake County.

Bard failed to notice the natural wonders of the Wasatch Mountains which are the most prominent feature of the Salt Lake Valley.

  1. Temple Square: This is the headquarters of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and is a popular tourist destination. Visitors can tour the Temple Visitors Center, learn about the history of the church, and see the beautiful architecture of the temple.
  2. The Natural History Museum of Utah: This museum has a wide variety of exhibits on dinosaurs, animals, plants, and Native American culture. There is also a planetarium and an outdoor dinosaur garden.
  3. The Utah Olympic Park: This park was built for the 2002 Winter Olympics and is now a popular spot for skiing, snowboarding, and other winter sports. There are also exhibits on the history of the Olympics and the park itself.
  4. The Hogle Zoo: This zoo is home to over 1,500 animals from around the world. There are also educational exhibits and a petting zoo.
  5. The Gallivan Center: This outdoor mall is home to shops, restaurants, and a theater. There is also a fountain and a carousel.
  6. The Red Butte Garden: This botanical garden has over 1,000 different types of plants. There are also hiking trails, a cafe, and an amphitheater.
  7. The Tracy Aviary: This aviary is home to over 400 birds from around the world. There are also educational exhibits and a flight show.
  8. The Great Salt Lake: This lake is the largest natural lake west of the Mississippi River. It is also the saltiest lake in the world.
  9. Antelope Island State Park: This park is home to a herd of bison and a variety of other wildlife. There are also hiking trails, a boat ramp, and a campground.
  10. The Bonneville Salt Flats: These flats are a popular spot for racing and other motorsports. They are also known for their otherworldly landscape.

NOTE: Google Bard scraped images from Wikipedia. I don't like scraping images.


AI does not seem to understand the difference between County, Valley and region. However, it did a good job of listing sites that one would find on the internet.
