For folks living in the United States, summer is here, and it’s time once again to reach for the sunglasses, enjoy a cold lemonade and, for many Latter-day Saint families, visit Salt Lake area Church attractions.
Any excursion to Church headquarters includes, of course, a visit to Temple Square. The stately temple, the historic Tabernacle, the visitors’ centers, the Conference Center and the Church History Museum remain “must sees.” But individuals and families alike can enrich their time in the greater Salt Lake area by adding several other Mormon-related attractions to their itinerary. Here are a few suggestions for some short trips outside of Temple Square. All are free of charge and can be of interest to both Utah residents and their guests.
Daughters of the Utah Pioneers Museum
Mormon Battalion Monument
