We stayed about 1/2 block from the Capitol and had our dogs with us. I was impressed by the tree lined gravel walkway surrounding the Capitol. It was dog friendly and had pet bags and disposals handily placed. There are multiple monuments to veterans and it is well lit, accessible all night. I am grateful the grounds were accessible because... More

Took a chance on taking a teen there. Afterward we hiked ensign peak. He was absolutely amazed. Seeing and hearing about it, outside of school is sometimes the best education. My guess is, he will now visit capitols in states he visits cause he thought it was that cool.

Brought the family here to see the Capitol. Found the location high up above the city and a great shy above. Grounds are immaculate and not clutter with buildings. Well worth you time to see this.

The capitol building itself is gorgeous but the grounds also host a nice shaded walking trail, and two small memorials.

This is a must when you visit SLC. They have scheduled tours or self guided tours. The inside is absolutely beautiful. Lots of details and everything is made of either granite or marble. Lots of history inside the building too. Plan about an hour to two hours to appreciate everything. But if you're in a hurry at least take the... More

My husband and I joined a small tour by docent, Deon (I believe). We seemed to spend ages hearing about how the building was refurbished to accommodate upgrades for earthquake protection, then it really got going. We learned a little about the history of the building and the fabulous paintings under and around the dome. I learned lots of new... More

This tour is free to the public. It lasted about 45 minutes and brought you through much of the building. There is free parking on the grounds. We found it to be very informative and interesting.
