This is a marvelous place to visit and the people are genuinely friendly. We're European and came up from Phoenix with our Swiss friend on a trip. Lo and behold... there were German and Swiss German guides to help us out. We found the entire experience wonderful. They have monuments to the Mormon pioneers, seagulls, Handcarts etc. plus visitors centers... More

Breathtaking beauty. Quite the experience. Wonderful to see if you want to experience the best of choir music.

We went on 4 tours and they were all free. No Reservations necessary. Do not miss the bee house, garden and convention center tours. The gardens are beautiful and the staff is made up of volunteers. You cannot miss Temple Square if you are in Salt Lake City which is home to the Mormon Faith.

What a beautiful city, and area. In between mountains, in a valley-surrounded by busy city life, but right in the middle is a place to soak up life and focus on what's really important in life. Gain new perspective, be in tune with yourself and whomever you pray to. No matter your religion, this is a must see.

Tons of history and very worthwhile for a visit. Not being familiar with the LDS church I was interested in the history. They have a very informative visitors center. I was very interested in learning so take my review with a little slant that way. For a typical tourist it Is a little "produced", but when you sit down and... More

I recently visited Temple Square and took a free tour offered by the LDS church. It turned out to be more of a propaganda session than a real history or architecture tour. The tour was advertised to be 45 minutes, starting on the hour every hour. But when I arrived at the spot with 2 minutes before the hour, the... More

The Temple Square area, consisting of several square blocks in center-city, was extraordinarily clean, beautifully landscaped and orderly. LDS personnel were readily available to answer questions and, if wanted, to serve as quides and narrators as to the sights which were there to be seen.

Well-manicured. I did not expect a spiritual feeling like one might experience at a Catholic Cathedral. But nevertheless I was surprised at how empty it felt. As for Salt Lake City overall -- I expected a pristine city on the lake. Instead... the city is very industrial and dotted with chemical plants of one type or another... with the lake... More

Didn't have to drive far at all. Was able to take pictures and walk through the area viewing waterfalls and the gorgeous temple.
