The Salt Lake Temple grounds are a place that tourists generally want to visit. It is one of the stops on the trolley tour. Although the Salt Lake Temple is currently under an extended renovation project, the Temple grounds are open for guests to enjoy.

The red replica trolley is a fun way to see some of the important sites of Salt Lake City. It is a fun excursion for children and adults, even local residents.
