Staying in Salt Lake for 1 nite on our way to Jackson Hole, via Green River WY. Staying at the Hampton Downtown. Question is: What is the absolute must SEE & must have dinner at.

How much of a budget to you have? I would say see Temple Square and the Roof for dinner. The Roof is pretty expensive though, so if you are trying to watch the money, try The Lion House or Ruth's Diner.

If you don't do dinner at the Joseph Smith Building (Roof or Garden) in Temple Square, try something along Broadway and SW Temple, both easily walkable from the Hampton downtown.

Temple Square isnt that mich fun but its really the only tourist trap. A great option is The Copper Onion for Dinner. It is more of a modern cuisine spot where the food is the star and not the view. Also be aware the Roof is 100 percent old Mormon so you cant get coffee let alone wine. Takashi is also very popular and is the best Japanese in town.

Well maybe it's not supposed to be "fun." Since it is, after all, the number one attraction in Salt Lake City, I really can't imagine visiting Salt Lake City and choosing to forego it.

I've eaten at the Copper Onion twice, and found it overpriced both times. That was just my experience, though. I know people who think it's a great place.

I'd agree that the Roof would probably not be the best choice for that reason.

If you could tell me what kind of cuisine you like, Alice, I bet I could come up with a number of excellent suggestions.

I don't know...I thought visiting Temple Square is a lot of fun. Very rich in history and some beautiful architecture. Take a buggy ride to make it complete!

Wow..... just read over the link "this recent thread" that Katzpur suggested, lots and lots of great ideas and suggestions, thanks so much. Someone asked what day we'd be in SLC: The 2nd, a Thursday, just for the day, than driving to Green River, WY. But returning Tuesday the 13th just for the day again, coming from Logan. In between we will be in Jackson Hole. Again thanks for all the great idea's.

Okay, here's the reason I asked... On Thursday evenings, the Mormon Tabernacle Choir has a rehersal for their upcoming Sunday morning radio broadcast. If you'd like to hear them sing, you may attend the rehearsal. It's free of charge, there is no specific dress code, and you may come and go as you like (you don't have to stay for the entire thing or get there right when it starts).
