Good Evening! Travel Tuesday returns this week with a glance at Salt Lake City. This city of 110.4 square miles and an elevation of 4,226 ft has an abundance of attractions to visit. Some of those amenities are listed in this post. Enjoy!
TEMPLE SQUARE - The holy place of the Mormons. Spread out over 35 acres, you'll find beautiful flowering trees; colorful flowerbeds; fountains; and four key Mormon buildings: The Mormon Temple, The Mormon Tabernacle, The Temple Annex, and the Assembly Hall. In addition to these spectacular buildings, you'll come across several historical monuments highlighting important people and events in the faith.
MORMON TEMPLE - One of the most iconic Salt Lake City landmarks is the Mormon Temple. Designed and built in the unique Mormon style, this stunning building was constructed between 1853 and 1893. At each end of this huge granite structure are three towers, the highest of which, at the east end, bears a 13-foot-high gilded figure of the angel Moroni.
SKIING AT NEARBY RESULTS - If you love to ski, Salt Lake City is a destination that should be on your list of places to visit. Within easy reach of the city are the ski resorts of Park City, Deer Val Valley, Snowbird, Alta, Solitude, and many more slightly farther away. One often overlooked advantage of staying in Salt Lake City is the lower elevation, which will limit the effects of the altitude.
