I first visited Gilgal 45 years ago. It is so well hidden that you have to know that it is there to be able to find it. It is a sculpture garden with cryptic sculptures with cryptic inscriptions. I've always found it fascinating. Few people...More

A strange part of Utah culture. This place is easy to miss since the entrance is tiny. It's definitely worth a stop as a local curiosity.

If you have time, (even though I felt SLC was not a big city compared to the other cities I've visited) check this place out! It was interesting and great for a picture surrounded by flowers and green scenery!

It's a (possibly) one-acre garden with rocks and scripture. I appreciated the scripture, but nothing else was aesthetically pleasing. I would skip if short on time....

This location is a small one, but they packed a lot into it without being overly crowed with things. Very much a place to see if you just want something quick to do.

A friend took us to this unique and somewhat quirky garden that has a devotion to Joseph Smith, who was the Mormon's first leader. It is small and free (donations accepted) to walk around. I considered it worth seeing.

This is one of the most unique places to visit in Salt Lake. It used to be privately owned, but now visitors are welcome to visit. You must see this when you visit SLC.
