This 10-acre Downtown quadrangle containing the Salt Lake Temple is an inspiring place; take a free walking tour of the beautifully landscaped grounds, catch an organ concert at the domed Tabernacle (home of the famous choir) or stop into the informative visitors’ center; some say go at Christmas, while others feel it’s a must-see in the summer with its acres of flowers.
