This small mountain peak trail offers spectacular views of the Great Salt Lake and the surrounding valley. It's rumored that Brigham Young hiked to the peak to survey the area and discussed the plans he had for constructing the city he intended to build. To commemorate this, a small monument can be seen from the summit. A well-marked path with remarkable views, this trail is well worth a hike.
This beautiful park, dedicated to the veterans of Utah, is refreshingly quiet and serene. The towering trees throughout and the Harbor of Beauty pond create a feeling of peacefulness for those who just want a quiet, meditative walk in the park. On the east bank is the Freedom Trail. On the west, the paved path goes all the way up to City Creek Canyon. The park is dog-friendly as long as pets are leashed—however, owners may unleash dogs in the canyon.
The Utah Travel Council, officially the State Division of Travel Development, strives to improve Utah life through economic contribution to tourism. While the council dabbles in an array of economic affairs, visitors will find its publications most helpful. The council publishes a variety of brochures and the excellent Utah Travel Guide, an informational book offered free to visitors. Those visiting the offices at Council Hall will find lots of good information, a helpful staff, and a small gift shop.
The Salt Lake City Council Hall is located in Capitol Hill in Salt Lake City, Utah. It was built in 1864 by architect William H. Folsom. It currently serves as the offices of the Utah Office of Tourism and the Utah Film Commission. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places on May 14, 1971.
Brigham Young Historic Park is a popular spot, especially in the summer when its twice-weekly music concerts take place.
An opulent granite monument, designed in a Gothic style, the Salt Lake Temple is commonly known as the Mormon Church. As testimony of the faith and devotion of the people, this structure took over 40 years to build from 1853. Like other Latter-day Saints temples, this one too is not open for public tours and only members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints are permitted to enter. However, the temple grounds can be visited, making it a popular tourist attraction for those looking to experience the magnificence first-hand.
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints encourages its patrons to trace genealogies for important religious rituals. For this reason, Salt Lake City, headquarters of the LDS Church, is home to some of the most extensive genealogical research facilities in the world. More serious than its friendly FamilySearch Center sibling, the Family History Library offers comprehensive records in catalog, computer, print, microfilm and microfiche formats. Visitors should begin their search at the user-friendly computers here or at the FamilySearch Center. Admission and use of the research records are free.
The Devereaux House or the Staines-Jennings Mansion dates back to the 1850s era. This historical landmark is now a classy event venue that hosts private events and functions. For details, check website.
Once home of the Hotel Utah, this historical building stands majestically in downtown Salt Lake City. On the top floor are two restaurants, The Garden and The Roof, both overlooking Temple Square. The building and its facilities are owned by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Elsewhere in the building, 13 banquet halls offer space for meetings, banquets and wedding receptions. The church welcomes members and non-members alike to use the facilities.
Because The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints encourages its members to trace their genealogical histories, many visitors to Salt Lake City spend considerable time in this interactive computer center and its more detail-oriented counterpart, Family History Library. Searchers plug in names, birthplaces and marriage dates, and the FamilySearch computers spit out mind-boggling arrays of genealogical records. Admission to the center is free, as is use of the 180 user-friendly FamilySearch computers. Serious searchers should call ahead for recommendations regarding pre-visit research.
This Roman Catholic cathedral stands majestically near the avenues in Salt Lake City. The building was renovated in 1990.
