Don't miss the Visitor Center and Gift Shop, one of the best shopping experiences in the West. You can also see the Mormon Battalion Museum and Stoddard Art Gallery.

Loved the view. We took a city tour so it was helpful to know what we were looking at and the history of Brigham Young and how they arrived at this location. Video inside the visitor center also helps to see what it is all about. Loved the memorials.

Lots to do at This is the Place. Lots of monuments and gardens to walk around for free. The village is adorable, especially around the holiday's. They decorate all the houses in tradional decor, and you get to make different treats and goodies. Great for families

Great family outing - lots of walking so wear good walking shoes. The kids get a kick out of seeing "what it was like" in the olden days!

This is where B. Young settled the Mormons. Personally, I'd go a little more west, say, California and go to the beach but this is the place.

This heritage park costs about 12 dollars to go in, but no discount for the fact that many of the buildings/attractions have closed (for the season?). We visited in late October. The buildings are either brought in from elsewhere or copies of original buildings. Some of the properties had members of staff who were anxious to impart information, for example,... More

We went here for a reception and got there at sunset - it was a GORGEOUS view. Unfortunately, I got no chance to explore - but I imagine it is pretty cool. I highly recommend it if you are a history buff.

This is the Place Heritage Park is a great place to learn about the pioneers and establishment of Salt Lake City.

If you go without little kids you can enjoy the different displays of... More

Statuary walk way has a statue of a small girl who represents the children who did not make it on the nearly impossible trek, these tough people who made it there. You get the feeling the view and this connection to history. Well designed there's a lot to learn here.

One could easily spend the day walking back through time. The park has several historical buildings relocated here and many monuments dedicated to the early settlers. A must see for history buffs.
