    One Sunday activity you might consider is the Mormon Tabernacle Choir's weekly broadcast, "Music and the Spoken Word". Visitors are always welcome to sit in at no charge. Because it is being broadcast you must be in your seat by 9:15 and must stay for the entire 1/2 hr event. At the moment it is being performed in the Conferance Center. When the Tabernacle is finished being renovated they will move back there. There may be times they aren't there (they are on tour perhaps), but it isn't often. To hear the choir in person is always a great treat.

    Best to visit in May or early June. The number one attraction in Utah is Temple Square, with 5 million visitors a year. Each of the five national parks, in southern Utah, get around a million visitors a year. Park City is the number one resort town, with skiing through April and mountain biking in the summer months. Moab, in southeastern Utah, is the number two resort town in the state. They're known for mountain biking and Jeep trails, also river rafting and Arches National Park. Beautiful red rock country. Zions is the most visited national park but many will say that they enjoyed Bryce more. Depends if you like to go canyoneering. For the more historic side, Salt Lake City has companies that do tourist day trips to places like the Great Salt Lake, Bingham Canyon Copper Mine, and the historic buidlings in town. www.toursofutah.com (801) 364-3333 or www.saltlakecitytours.org (801) 531-1001 or www.saltlaketrolley.com. Mormon Tabernacle Choir concerts are on Sunday morning, free to the public, and a rehearsal on Thursday evening. Daily organ recitals in the Tabernacle at noon and the Family History Library are big visitor attractions. Brigham Young's house is a walk-through museum. Most buildings around Temple Square have free guided tours by church volunteers. Public transit is free within half a mile radius of Temple Square. The lightrail runs along Main Street and down South Temple. It's $5-6 for an all-day pass if you venture out farther. Try a restaurant called Red Iguana, it was on the Food Network's Diners, Drive-ins and Dives show.
