The 10 acre refuge with is a magnificently landscaped ground surrounding the Salt Lake Temple. Experienced representatives will take you on a complimentary tour of Temple Square, including the Tabernacle, the Assembly Hall and the beautiful flower gardens. Brigham Young designated where the temple would be built, and on April 6, 1853, he laid the cornerstone of the temple's foundation. As you enter the courtyard you will notice the lines of buses (tourists)in the street. The SLC convention center is directly across the street. Plan to spend the day: so many sites to see and free admission. You will NOT see a Starbuck's at any location downtown. Don't expect to find many places for breakfast, except for the large hotel chains. We were there on Saturday morning with a temperature of 87 degrees at 9 am. Allyson saw a Weiner Schnitzel and insisted on their famous Hot Dogs. Yes, at 10 in the morninng.
