I've been to Provo and Moab - and my parents just moved to St. George - none of which helps you.

So here's the best I could do:

What To Do in Salt Lake City (Trip Advisor)
What To Do in Salt Lake City (SLC Corp)

I've also heard there are some excellent jazz clubs around SLC. I've heard good things about music scene in general, actually.

You could catch a Jazz game, no NBA season isn't for another month or two. You could ski, no, that's not for another 3 months. Salt Lake doesn't have a whole lot going on. However, it's only a couple of hours away from Wendover, Nevada, so if you have time, you could always hit I-80 and head to the Peppermill. Along the way you'd pass the Bonneville Salt Flats...where they do all the land speed records.

Are you a history nut? Lots of it there. The Mormon temple is there, and there's lots of people there who'll talk about the history of thier church...and they won't do their usual "Join our church" spiel. It's very fascinating.

A quick note: before you head out there, get a map and get accustomed to the way their streets are named. You'll thank me later; it's very, very confusing.

Otherwise, enjoy your trip!

Yeah, Utah has the weirdest addressing system ever. 2500 West 1500 South. What?

It's a bit early for fall colors in the canyons, but the canyons are still a nice drive even without them.

Temple Square is interesting and free. There are organized tours, or just wander around. Go into the Joseph Smith building and head up to the 10th floor for an excellent overlook of everything. Have lunch at the Garden while you're up there.

On Thursday evenings, you can attend the Mormon Tabernacle Choir's weekly rehearsal at the LDS Conference Center. Even without the Choir, the building is something to see.

You can have lunch at the "World's First KFC" on State St at 3900 South. It's actually a new building, but they have all sorts of interesting stuff from KFC's history in there.

I would also suggest onion rings at the Iceberg Drive-Inn. You can also get one of the original Pastrami burgers at Crown Burgers.

And Megaplex 17 at Jordan Commons is my favorite theatre anywhere if you're thinking about taking in a movie...

I'll third the Temple Square recommendation. Also, the huge public library right downtown is fairly cool...that is, if the bomb blast last week hasn't shut it down.

Head to the Delta Center and rub the John Stockton statue. People didn't stare at me too much...honest.

I wasn't even aware of a Stockton statue, when did that go up, and when is the Malone one to follow? (I'm assuming, although his tenure Lakerland may change that.)

*EDIT* Googled to find the Stockton statue, and found the Malone one had already been erected. Lived in Northeast Nevada, Western Wyoming, and Utah, and have always been a Bulls fan, but always have held a special place in my heart.

SLC has trendy shopping, trendy food, and trendy nightlife. If any of that appeals to you I can PM you some recommendations. Other than that, I'd say check out that very first Kentucky Fried Chicken. I don't know if I'm being sarcastic or not.

edit: Pick up a City Weekly! Something cool might be going on.

I went to the temple grounds and walked around. Then I went back to the hotel and slept.

I left the hotel once the entire time I was there So much for asking for suggestions.

I'm closing this as it has already been sort of addressed in the Politics folder in a thread that I really don't want to see repeat itself.
