Salt Lake City

We visited Salt Lake City as part of a 3 week road trip and really enjoyed it. Temple Square was very interesting with many people in and around the buildings to give you information. It was a shame we couldn't have a look in the Temple itself but no sightseeing was allowed in there. The Tabernacle was amazing, and although there was a young man practicing on the organ we where told to make it over to the Conference Centre where they did a Recital at set times. This was an amazing place, again as soon as you walked in the main door someone would greet you and show you round. We were taken up to the roof garden and couldn't believe that all those trees and shrubs etc would exist up there! We then made our way to the Main Hall for the recital, that was well worth waiting for. In the Church Office Building we were taken up to the 26th floor for amazing views of the City. The following day we had already pre booked to do the Trolly Bus tour of the City. The driver was dressed the part and gave us plenty of information as we were driving around. The two main buildings we stopped at was the only Catholic Church in Salt Lake, and the State Capitol Building, both were worth a visit all be it we only had limited time in each of them. In the afternoon we took our car and drove out to the Great Salt Lake, amazing place! You would never know it was a Lake, it was so big, and it took us maybe 10 minutes to actually walk to the water side! It was just like a Millpond. Like its name it was very salty and by the time we had finished having a paddle our feet where just white with the salt! Although this isn't a question I just hope helps with places to visit whilst in Salt Lake.

Thanks for your report. One correction though...The Cathedral of the Madeline that you visited on the trolley tour is the only Catholic cathedral in SLC. There are many Catholic churches in the Salt Lake Valley and through out Utah.
