This location is a small one, but they packed a lot into it without being overly crowed with things. Very much a place to see if you just want something quick to do.

A friend took us to this unique and somewhat quirky garden that has a devotion to Joseph Smith, who was the Mormon's first leader. It is small and free (donations accepted) to walk around. I considered it worth seeing.

This is one of the most unique places to visit in Salt Lake. It used to be privately owned, but now visitors are welcome to visit. You must see this when you visit SLC.
