When in Salt Lake City, we schedule our trip around the Thursday night rehearsal and the Sunday morning recording of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra. Our most recent trip featured not a rehearsal, but a concert on Thursday night, honoring choral directors from all over the country in their national convention. Not a stranger to professional music makers, the... More

This whole campus is very interesting and quite beautiful, especially at night. There is a lot to see here - one might allow a couple of hours to poke around.

We were in town for a choir concert and got to hear performances at the Mormon Tabernacle and Assembly Hall. The LDS church has very reasonable prices at its Temple Square restaurants. Try the Garden Restaurant on the 10th floor of the Joseph Smith Memorial Building. Great food, affordable and views of the temple right next door.

No access to the actual temple and the one hour tour is a sales job for the Mormon church. Guess I should have expected that but it took away from our primary purpose and that was to understand the history of the Mormons better.

We are not Mormom, but we did thoroughly enjoy our wanderings in and around Temple Square - both day and evening. There are other important landmarks (the Cathedral, Visitor's Center, etc.) in the Square. It's easy to find a person to answer your questions. The only place that was pressure re:the Mormom faith was inside the Cathedral. While my husband... More

You cannot go into the church itself if you are not a Mormon but it is spectacular, as many churches are, from the outside. People are quite friendly. The only downside to SLC is that you can't walk a block without panhandlers bothering you. I was told by a few locals that they get shipped in because they are told... More

First off, the people here are extraordinarily nice and willing to help you get around. Like, unnaturally nice. Temple Square consists of several buildings surrounded by Kremlin-like walls. After spending several days in SLC (during which many activities were held in the Tabernacle, the LDS Conference Center, and Salt Palace Convention Center), I couldn't wait to get out. You can't...

Clean, safe, plaques at several statues tell the story of creating a religion. Hundreds of faithful from around the world are identified with name tags and happy to chat with you. No one pressured me to convert. The home of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir was smaller than I expected, but beautiful and acoustically impressive.
