Recreation

Make a vacation out of your trip to Utah for Institute!

We have many families come from out of state that make a vacation out of institute either before or after their institute week. We have beautiful mountain views great for hiking, biking and relaxation. Also of interest would be the 2002 Winter Olympic Parks nearby, Temple Square, LDS Conference Center, Real Salt Lake Soccer Stadium and much more! We would be happy to make some recommendations if you need some ideas.
