Salt Lake City Vacations
Many Salt Lake vacations include visits to Temple Square and the architectural masterpieces that surround it. The Salt Lake Temple was constructed over a four decade period, with workers bringing the granite blocks to the site by wagon. The Tabernacle inside Temple Square is architecturally stunning. Tour guides have been known to drop paper clips a hundred feet from visitors to demonstrate the space's impressive acoustics.
