If you’re headed to the homecoming football game at the University of Utah this weekend, take the TRAX! Not only does it save you the headache of finding parking, but your event ticket gets you free fare all day. Here’s how to spend a day in Salt Lake City along the TRAX red line.

Know Before You Go

Clear Bag Policy

The Rice-Eccles Stadium has a clear bag policy, only see-through bags 12”x18” are allowed. They also have an expedited line for people with no bags.

Water Bottles

Only one factory-sealed water bottle is allowed per person. No other outside food or drink is permitted.

🚉 900 S. Station

Grab a slice from Snowmobile Pizza. This place will make you feel like a kid again if you grew up in the ‘80s. The table numbers have iconic characters like Garfield and the Goonies.

There’s nothing that says football like a slice and a cider (or at least that’s what I’ve heard). After Snowmobile, head across the street to Scion Cider for a pint of their ever-changing lineup of draft ciders.

🚉 Library Station

Take in the beautiful architecture of the Salt Lake City Library. Check out a book or two, a wifi hot spot, or a ukulele (anyone know the stadium's ukulele policy?).

Stop for a treat at Doki Doki, a Japanese dessert cafe. They have crepe cakes, cream puffs, and taiyaki (fish-shaped) waffles in yummy flavors like ube, passion fruit, and sakura (cherry blossom).

🚉 Stadium Station

A hidden gem that offers large family-style portions. Try their marinated beef, hot & sour soup, and Thai iced tea. They have plenty of vegan and vegetarian options, too.

A University of Utah classic, hit up B&D Burger for a good ol’ burger and shake.
