Exploring Utah’s most popular tourist attraction

On June 9, 1856, 500 Mormons left Iowa and headed west for Salt Lake City, transporting their belongings in two-wheeled carts. Almost four decades later, in 1893, the Mormons completed construction on Salt Lake Temple, located in Temple Square, which today attracts from 3 to 5 million tourists each year. The site is the state’s most popular tourist attraction and garners more visitors than the Grand Canyon. Video courtesy of LDS Vids via YouTube
