1 day

I am flying to Salt Lake City and will be there for one day, but without a rental car. Can anyone recommend something to see/do?

SLC has a pretty vibrant Downtown, and you can certainly kill some time at the Mormon temple (you don't have to convert, so don't worry) and just walking around and seeing some sights. Gateway Center and the library are both worth checking out.
You have to take a taxi into town from the airport (or a bus if you're willing), but there's a pretty good train system in town, and you can use it to go to the university if you're interested in that (there are some museums on campus).

hth!

For sure take the tour of the Mormon Temple. It is fascinating.

In the downtown area the TRAX light rail and buses are free so use them to get around. Gateway is great for shopping and food (try the brazilian steakhouse Samba Grill). The Clark Planeterium is there as well and is very nice. There are some nice statues of John Stockton and Karl Malone at the SE corner of the Delta Center. There is a good visitor information center at the Salt Palace where you could get help. The art at the Church History and Art museum west of Temple Square is wonderful. Next door is the Geneology Library. (though that can be a bit overwhelming). The gardens at Temple Square and east to the plaza fountain are beautiful. Library Square is a great place get a nice view of the city, it is an amazing building. Eat at one of the greek or mexican restaurants. Depending on what day you are here there are free concerts at the Gallivan Center at noon. Walking is possible. Seven blocks equal one mile, you will be going downhill south of Temple Square (and therefore uphill going back). One can tour the Catholic Cathedral of the Madeline, (though not huge it is beautiful and a reminder that not all natives are Mormon). The Natural History Museum and Fine Arts museums are on the University of Utah Campus and are fun for a walk through and can be reached on TRAX, ($1.50 one way). Also at the U (on the south side of the stadium) is the Olympic torch and other Olympic items. To get to the canyons, or the Zoo, or This is the Place monument, or the Kennecott Open pit Mine or the Great Salt Lake would take a car. I have no idea how much it would take to taxi. If I had to pick one of those to see it would be the Kennecott mine. It is huge and awesome to contemplate. Hope you have a good day.

Travel Tips for Salt Lake City

Go Hiking, Go...

by kinipela6

Go Hiking, Go Snowboarding/Skiing, Go climbing, every landscape in Salt Lake it beautiful. This is where I live. I really love Salt Lake. Other than the 2002 olympics construction right now, this is a very nice place. Temple Square is very beautiful, and an extremely hot tourist spot. You wouldn't believe the lights at Christmas time.

Hiking/biking the Bonneville Shoreline trail

by Segolily

The Salt Lake Valley (and much of northern Utah) was once the home of the huge freshwater Lake Bonneville. This lake left behind benches on the mountain sides where once it lapped the shore. There are several distinct levels that are slowly being built on and are no longer as easily seen as they once were. The highest level is known as the Bonneville shoreline. It was the highest lake level at 5100 ft.
Since the mountainsides above the Bonneville shoreline are much steeper this generally is where the houses stop. As the buildings began to obliterate the natural landscape there were many who called for trails before it was too late. The Bonneville Shoreline trail grew slowly but has gathered steam as more people agree on its value and use. The vision is that one day it will be a continuous trail from Idaho to past Nephi all along the same level as the ancient lake.

Salt Lake City and Draper at either end of the Salt Lake Valley have been the first to have a complete trail. It is favored by mt bikers, but hikers are welcome as well.

I've been exploring the Draper trail section by section and I have to say I am impressed. The trail is easy to follow if narrow. There are great views, and the mountains it traverses while seeming lifeless from further away become full of animal and bird life up close. I've found little pockets of woodland I would never have imagined. Once you find a trail head it is easy enough to follow the trail.
As with many other long distance trails you can do a small section or long.

Kennecott Copper Mine

by Segolily

About an hours drive south of downtown a visitor can drive up the side of the mountain and into the heart of the largest man-made excavation on earth.

In 1848, the second year of settlement in the Salt Lake Valley Thomas and Sanford Bingham came to the canyon now given their name. They planned to ranch.

In 1863 soldiers stationed at Ft Douglas during the Civil War went out looking for lead ore for their bullets. They found what they needed in Bingham Canyon and Utah's first mining district was established.

Copper was found soon after. The copper was good quality, but it is a low grade deposit - a ton of ore contains only about 10 pounds of copper. It was not financially feasible to mine it traditionally. in 1893 Daniel Jackling and Robert Gemmell (whose names bytheway have not found their way into any modern Utah building, monument or consciousness) developed the idea of an open pit mine that would extract the ore on a large scale that would allow them to make it worth their while.

Over one hundred years later the earth is still giving up its riches to the miners. Over the years it has produced about 18 million tons! of copper, more than any other mine. That open-pit is now 3/4 of a mile deep and over 2 1/2 miles across. It is mind boggling to look at. In the early morning dynamite buried 55 feet deep will be ignited to loosen the overburden. All day long the 70 huge trucks with tires over 12 feet high, will carry 300 tons each trip of the barren rock from the mine to the slag heap, while the ore will go to the hugh in-pit crusher.

Copper is not the only metal found here. Gold, Silver and Molybdenum in minute quantities (that add up to quite a bit) are extracted in the final stages of the copper refining.

According to literature available at the entrance a typical new home contains about 500 pounds of copper- in wiring, plumbing and brass fixtures. It is also found in cars, computers, telephones and other modern electrical appliances.

They also say that the amount of copper used by the US mint in 1999 to make all the coins would require 41 days to produce at Kennecott.

Visitors are allowed of course only in a limited spot. The visitors center has a nice plaza overlooking the mine where it is possible to watch the trucks and giant shovels working. Inside is a good movie explaining the process and a museum of interesting facts figures, metal samples, refining process video etc.

Next door is a gift shop operated by the Lions Club where you can find plenty of copper items (they don't say whether the copper was mined at Kennecott, but one would hope so).

On a recent trip there I spend an hour and felt a little rushed.

Bombay House, cuisine of India

Bombay House, cuisine of India
The atmosphere is very inviting. The waiters and cashier are all of Pakistani and Indian descent and soft Indian sitar and drum music plays in the background. The price is quite reasonable and paying more than $15-$20 per person would be quite extravagant. It's truly a unique experience. Chicken Kurma and a Mango Lassi. Nothing is better than this dish of boneless chicken marinated and smothered in a mildly spiced creamy curry sauce with raisins, tomatoes, and cashews. A refreshing mango lassi washes everything down wonderfully. Of course, no Indian meal is complete without some bread, I recommend the garlic naan or onion kulcha.
