We love HTC and have come attended numerous performances over the years. Such a great venue for these wonderful musicals. We just saw Seven Brides for Seven Brothers the other night. It's one of our favorite musicals and HTC did not disappoint. Everything was great. The scenery, the music, and the actors were fantastic. It really is a wonderful little place to visit. We hope to return after they have relocated.

Just returned from my second Westwater Canyon trip and what an amazing time. This company does it right and the trip was absolutely perfect. A big thanks to Colter, Rolf, Vern, Sandy and Josh for doing such an outstanding job taking care of everything. They love their work and in so doing make the entire experience simply fantastic. Holiday sets a bar that few others can meet and we are already thinking about another trip next year.

We spent 4 hours there, and it was worth the trip. We started at the special exhibition of Nature's amazing machines, flight, body cooling and warming, walking, lifting etc. Interactive displays for kids and adults, and all the displays still worked. We stopped by their Life Section and enjoyed the Tree of Life digital display, the dinosaurs and the large mammal skeletons, and gems. There are 4 levels with all sorts of different exhibits, something is sure to tickle your fancy.

We spent a couple of hours waling through these gardens that are situated on the hill behind the University of Utah campus. The gardens have been recently renovated and are very special! There are beautiful views facing west across the U of U campus and the valley below. There are plenty of places to sit and relax, too. Everyone who has an interest in botanical gardens should go here!

LDS Conference Center

Reviewed By mrsagf - washington dc

Yet more massive, brutalist architecture, with a good attempt to soften it by instituting rooftop gardens. Lines were long for the Thursday evening rehearsal of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir (this is the summer venue), but no worries, the hall seats 21,000. This choir ARRIVES PREPARED, with music already learned. What a difference that makes.

Cathedral of the Madeleine

Reviewed By Lebasi10

I attended eveningmass at the cathedral after arriving in SLC on a Sunday. It was a beautiful experience: the homily, the music, the gorgeous architecture... Parking was difficult, especially since I arrived a bit late. I stayed for a while after mass ended and thoroughly enjoyed several minutes of silence and prayer.

We stopped by here for a visit to see the organ and maybe hear some info about it. When we walked in, there was a woman demonstrating the acoustics, but no one to give a tour or info. We are looking forward to coming to their bell practice session on Wed and the choir on Thurs.

Smith's Ballpark

Reviewed By cleichhorn - Charleston, South Carolina

We were in town visiting and decided to catch a Bees game. Beautiful ball field with spectacular view. Great gift shop, lots of food choices, and friendly and clean everywhere. Easily took the Trax green line from downtown hotel. There are some homeless around, not bothersome, just be aware. We were early, so we went across to the mini mart/gas station on the corner for a cup of coffee. Also there's a sports bar a block away it seems some wait there for game. There's not much cover if raining before gates open. Definitely check it out. Lots of fun.

The collection of records available is unbelievable. I have been there many times, and am constantly amazed at what I find. There are plenty of experts ready to help you. I go frequently, expecting just to be there for an hour to find something specific, and find source after source, and suddenly I've been there for 6 hours and found jewels - every time!
