Salt Lake City Organized Tours Overview
It's as if Salt Lake City was built for guided tours. Local Folklore says that Brigham Young designed the super-sized streets in Salt Lake so that a team of oxen could do a U-turn without getting stuck.
True or not, the streets offer plenty for room for horse-drawn carriages that fill the downtown streets on weekends and holidays. A carriage ride is a perfect way to see this city -- and there are plenty of opportunities to take one. Carriage for Hire offers a wide range of tours with the main carriage stop at the South Gate of Temple Square.
Of course, there are other types of tours to be taken. Grayline gives Salt Lake tours, including the Great Salt Lake and Olympic venues.
Salt Island Adventures has sightseeing tours and nightly dinner cruises on the Great Salt Lake, departing on the Island Serenade from the Salt Lake Marina.
Most of the hotels in Salt Lake City are on the newer side -- constructed or updated in anticipation of the 2002 Olympic Games. On the next page, we'll tell you about some of the most appealing options, including the luxuriouis Mobil Four-Star Grand American.
