I'm not Mormon but I very much have appreciated the beauty of the church owned area. The buildings are amazing, the gardens and fountains are beautiful! Every one of the sisters that answer questions are friendly and knowledgeable! We stumbled upon this and are glad we did!

The architecture and grounds are absolutely breathtaking. The people there are loving and accepting. Super family friendly. If you get the chance, go in December. The Christmas lights are AMAZING

Facilities designed to tell the LDS story very well. Beautiful flowers everywhere this time of year. Highly recommend the pipe organ concert in the Tabernacle at noon most every day. The sound is incredible.

There is a free round trip shuttle that runs between the airport and Temple Square, if you have a little time between connecting flights. It is a beautiful and historic place to visit. It is the home of the famous Mormon Tabernacle Choir. If you are there on a Thursday evening, you can attend their rehearsal. All is totally free.

Beautiful but very busy. Interesting to learn about the mormon/utah history. Avoid the tours unless you want to be converted and they are a huge time suck.

No visit to Salt Lake City is complete without a stop at Temple Square. The huge Temple is the center piece but the fountains, statues and flowers are the decorations. There is so much to look at and the grounds are breath taking. You cannot enter the temple but there are two visitor centers, assembly hall and the tabernacle that... More

While I try to go every visit to SLC, the best was to Lighting right after Thanksgiving. It was crowded, packed but people were polite and it was beautiful. There is never a bad time but the Spring is pretty with blooming flowers. I was equally impressed with the Elders that give an excellent presentation of the LDS religion and... More

The grounds are very well kept, and the flower beds are unbelievable. If you have a specific purpose for visiting, definitely go. But even if you're just wandering around the city, it's worth a quick stop. Grab lunch and eat it on a bench there.

Tours are offered or you can explore the guest center at your own pace and level of interest. Learn the history. Separate the facts from rumors. Don't miss the dioramas downstairs and the sky mural serenity room upstairs. The main Temple is not open to tourists. The landscaping is picturesque. Plan to attend the Sunday musical program. You can attend... More
