Tour Temple Square; Many people hear ‘Salt Lake City’ and think immediately of the Mormon church. The city is indeed the headquarters of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, and Temple Square downtown offers a fascinating glimpse into this fast-growing faith. Yet Salt Lake is much more – state capital, recreation hub, and a major center of business, arts, and sports in the Mountain West. Salt Lake City welcomed the world when it hosted the Winter Olympic Games in 2002. Now it’s your turn to take a look! Explore these and more with your expert personal guide, available 24/7 on your schedule!

  • Salt Lake City has excellent public transportation. Buses and light rail criss-cross the town, and even lead up into the ski areas. There's also a free fare zone downtown. Check routes and schedules online, or view schedules at one of the bus or light rail stations downtown.
  • Many businesses are closed on Sunday in SLC, more so than in most other major cities. This is especially true of restaurants and other locally-owned establishments.
  • If you have the time, don't miss a chance to experience the gorgeous alpine scenery of the Wasatch Range. From downtown, you can be in the mountains within a half hour. Roads lead up Big and Little Cottonwood Canyons on the east side of the city. During ski season, you can even travel by city bus!
  • Drink plenty of water during your visit. SLC sits at an elevation of 4,226 feet and has an arid climate, so it's very easy to get dehydrated here.
  • Despite what you may have heard, Utah has relaxed its regulations about alcohol in the last few years. It's easy to get a drink in a restaurant or bar in the city, and 'memberships' are no longer required. But you still can only purchase bottles of liquor and wine at a state-run liquor store. They are closed on Sundays.

"Exciting, a whole new concept"
Around The World Travel Radio

"Even though I am a local, I thoroughly enjoyed visiting and learning more about the history of the landmarks. The author's interest in the area comes through in his engaging style of writing. Being able to complete the tour at my own pace made it even
more enjoyable."
Flora Savitzky (Researcher)

"When the conference ended, I stayed in town on my own and used T4M's self-guided tour to decide which things in town I wanted to visit and what to see/do there. The guide was right every step of the way. Bottom line, this guide helped me make the most of my time in town."
Ed Wetschler, SATW & Editor of Tripitini
