    Sounds like a blast and I love camping but I'm flying in from Va and the hotel room is already paid for.

    That is one option.

    If you've not yet visited Temple Square it is well worth seeing. (Not really gun friendly, so CC, or if you plan to go inside the Tabernacle--as in Mormon Tabernacle Choir--on the tour, leave the gun in your room or car as the buildings on Temple Square qualify as houses of worship and are legally off limits since the LDS Church has given notice. Misdemeanor offense.)

    The Utah State Capital is quite beautiful and well worth a visit if you're into history and architecture. OC/CC friendly.

    Depending on how soon you are headed this way, Snowbird may still be open for skiing. If not, some overpriced, but good food in Park City. More reasonably priced food in SLC. The buffet restaurant on the top floor of the Joseph Smith memorial building (formerly the Hotel Utah) is quite good--great views too--and has desserts to die for. Probably not the best place to OC, but CC perfectly legal. And one of the few places where you won't be able to get coffee. Ditto the Lion House restaurant.

    Tiburon in Sandy City (about 10 miles or 20 minute drive south of SLC) is fabulous and has a decent wine menu I'm told.

    A trip out to the Great Salt Lake (either Saltair or Antelope Island) can be quite nice.

    Hill AFB has a good air museum. (I'd guess NOT OC or CC friendly).

    If you're in town for more than just one night, the Shakespearean Festival in Cedar City (about a 3 hour drive south from SLC) is one of the best in the nation.


    Those who consider shopping to be entertainment seem to enjoy the Gateway.

    The Cathedral of the Madeleine is also wonderful to see.

    Or, check out the various options listed at <http://www.tripadvisor.com/Attractio..._Utah.html>


    Or <www.onlineutah.com/museums.shtml>.

    Enjoy your trip.

    TJ quoted the law, but just to clarify the point, it's an infraction (like a speeding ticket), not a misdemeanor.

    Still, I'd ask everyone not to OC in temple square for political reasons, even if you don't mind getting a ticket. Getting the church annoyed about it would likely have negative effects on our rights. The church doesn't often use its political muscle, but it's enormously powerful and we don't want it flexing against us.

    Definitely agreed. That is one situation I hope nobody puts the gun owning community through.

    [line]Doh!!!

    UTOC is absolutely correct. Tresspas in a House of Worship is an infraction. That is what I get for typing with the brain disengaged. Thanks for the correction.

    I'll see if I can make it to the Camping trip. If not (due to gas-prices) maybe we could meet for brief dinner? Other might chime in here ?
