Salt Lake City is a great, family-friendly place to visit if you’re in the Utah area and looking for new experiences. It’s one of those cities whose attractions aren’t as widely known as New York or Chicago, so you may need some help planning your trip. But don’t worry, there are indeed plenty of attractions to choose from! Here are a few to get you started.

Mormon Tabernacle Choir

Salt Lake City has a lot of historical significance for the Mormon community, and as such this choir’s shows are a totally unique experience. Luckily, between January and May, you can see them perform on Sundays or even sit in on a rehearsal for free on certain Thursdays.

Christian School of Ralphael Plescia

Don’t worry, this isn’t actually a school. It’s something of an art gallery and studio, belonging to Ralphael Plescia who has been making art based on obscure religious passages for the last 50 years. His art and the place that houses it are intertwined, with architecture and sculptures both on display.

Marmalade Hill Historic District

This is something like an “old city”, with older buildings including the houses of local historical figures. You can wander the streets and learn about early Salt Lake City, imagining what life would have been like all those years ago.
