Tourist spots

People’s Choice


Downtown Salt Lake City » Though exact numbers of visitors are not revealed, there is little doubt that Temple Square in the heart of Salt Lake City is Utah’s top tourist draw. No matter what your religion is, visiting Utah’s capital city without seeing Temple Square would be like going to Rome and not seeing the Vatican. But there’s also the sparkling new City Creek Shopping Center along with museums such as Discovery Gateway, Clark Planetarium, Pioneer Memorial Theatre, Museum of Church History and Art and Utah Museum of Contemporary Art. Add to that arts, sports and concert venues such as Abravanel Hall, the Capitol Theatre, the Gallivan Center and EnergySolutions Arena and the summer farmers market, and downtown can be a lively place to visit.
