The LDS has made it possible for travelers with a layover in Salt Lake City to visit their Temple complex downtown: they offer a complimentary hourly shuttle service from the airport direct to Temple Square (and back!).
In the months of July and August, temple shuttles travel half-hourly from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. with returns from 10:30 a.m. until 8:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday; in the shoulder season, the same hours are traveled hourly. November through March and Sundays year-round, the shuttle runs a limited 9 a.m.-2 p.m. schedule, with returns from 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. There is no service on holidays, and travelers are permitted only hand luggage on the shuttle. The visit requires at least a two-hour layover.
The Temple is open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. daily. It’s also possible to visit the Tabernacle, home of the world famous Tabernacle Choir, or, if the timing is right, to hear a choir concert — Thursday nights from 8-9:30 p.m. or Sundays from 9-11 a.m. Admission to all is free. Find out more information for your specific date by calling their visitors’ center directly: 1-800-537-9703.
