Salt Lake City Holidays Overview


Salt Lake City is famous for its pleasing atmosphere and easy going lifestyle. It provides with the ideal stop over for a couple of days of merrymaking and boasts of a fantastic setting that is overlooked by the Wasatch Front.

The Winter Olympics of 2002 might have played a huge part in putting Salt Lake City on the map of international travellers, but letís not take anything away from the beauty and diversity of sights and attractions that Salt Lake City has to offer. The city is home to the headquarters of the LDS Church and many attractions of the city are known to focus on the history of the LDS. The breathtaking Big Cottonwood Canyon, Great Salt Lake and the Wasatch Mountains ensure that there is no shortage of natural beauty or avenues for sports like skiing and snowshoeing and there are a number of rock climbing, mountaineering, mountain biking and hiking opportunities available as well.

Apart from its grand outdoor sporting and adventure activities and some of the best skiing opportunities in the world, Salt Lake City also offers a flourishing arts scene, a thriving nightlife, numerous restaurants catering to different cuisines from all over the world and a hugely successful university.

Salt Lake City holidays - Top Places To Go

 
1. Temple Square
15 East South Temple
www.go-utah.com/Temple-Square
What is it? The four-hectare (10-acre) Temple Square complex includes the Mormon Temple, the Tabernacle and the Assembly Hall. It is at the heart of Salt Lake City, in location and spiritual importance, and the symbolic epicentre of the Mormon religion or Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter-Day Saints. Temple Square is the city's biggest attraction, particularly the majestic six-spired Temple, topped by a golden statue of the Angel Moroni, which forms a striking silhouette on the city's skyline. The Temple was completed in 1893 after 40 years of heavy labour and the expenditure of millions of dollars. It is a holy place closed to the non-Mormon public. Confirmed believers may enter the Temple, but only for the most sacred of religious ceremonies, and non-Mormons can learn about temple activities at the visitor centres. The oval shape of the Tabernacle, topped by an impressive domed roof, is home to the world-famous Mormon Tabernacle Choir whose weekly rehearsals and organ recitals are open to all free of charge, and illustrate the outstanding acoustic properties of the Tabernacle building. The Gothic-style Assembly Hall, constructed from granite left over from the Temple, is the venue for concerts and lectures. The two visitor centres, North and South, contain religious murals and paintings, exhibits and presentations about the Mormon faith, a film depicting the arrival of the first Mormon pioneers in Salt Lake City, and photographs of the Temple interior. Hours of Operation: The North and South visitor centres are open daily from 9am to 9pm. Choir rehearsals in the Tabernacle are on Thursdays from 8pm to 9.30pm, and choir broadcasts are on Sundays from 9.30am to 10am (last seating at 9.15am). Organ recitals take place from Monday to Saturday between 12pm and 12.30pm, and on Sunday from 2pm to 2.30pm. The Temple is closed to non-Mormons Phone:(801) 240 2534 (Temple Square Visitor Center) or (800) 537 9703 (concert schedule)

 

 

2. Utah State Capitol
Capitol Hill, northern end of State Street
What is it? Modelled after the national Capitol building in Washington DC, the Utah State Capitol sits on a hill above the city, a prominent sight surrounded by acres of beautifully landscaped gardens. Memory Grove, to the east of the building, contains statues honouring Utah veterans, and the grounds are a favourite destination for joggers and walkers. The impressive granite structure of the Capitol building is crowned by a copper dome and fronted by columns, representing one of the greatest examples of the Renaissance Revival style in the nation. A colossal chandelier illuminates the interior walls that are covered with murals illustrating Utah's history. Several busts proclaim the state's prominent figures, including Brigham Young, leader of the Mormon pioneers who founded Salt Lake City. Marble staircases lead to the third floor where the Senate, House of Representatives, and the Supreme Court of Utah are based. The state legislature meets in January and February and visitors are welcome to sit in the galleries overlooking their chamber. Visitors can choose to wander through the building alone or join a guided tour. Hours of Operation: The building is currently under renovation until 2008 and is closed to the public, but ordinarily it is open Monday to Saturday from 6am to 8pm (summer), rest of year 6am to 6pm. Guided tours are Monday to Friday from 9am to 4pm Phone:(801) 538 3000 or (801) 538 1563
