This day of discovery begins with a Salt Lake City hotel pickup. Enjoy a sightseeing tour, beginning at the Utah State Capitol. The building houses the chambers and offices of the Utah State Legislature, the offices of the Governor, Lieutenant Governor, Attorney General, the State Auditor and their staffs.
Next up is the Mormon Pioneer Trail, a 1,300-mile route that members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints traveled from 1846 to 1868 — and This is the Place Heritage Park, a living-history park featuring a Mormon monument, train rides, a petting zoo and a Native-American village.
Then, experience the beautiful landscape and historic buildings of Salt Lake City's Temple Square, one of Utah's top tourist attraction; historic Fort Douglas, established during the American Civil War; the National Pony Express Monument, dedicated to the men of the Original Pony Express and the Salt Lake campus of Utah State University. Also, see 100-year-old mansions and churches, plus venues used in the 2002 Winter Olympic games. Then it’s off to see the world-renowned, award-winning Tabernacle Choir, arguably one of the most-celebrated choirs in history. Select from an intimate evening rehearsal on a Thursday or a full-blown concert on Sunday morning. Depending on the time of year, the performance will take place at the LDS Conference Center or the Salt Lake Tabernacle in Temple Square.
The Thursday tour will include dinner at Brigham Young’s pioneer home (own expense) before the rehearsal and the Sunday tour features lunch (own expense) after the concert.
