Oregon is traveling to the Beehive State to face Utah at 2:30 p.m. Saturday. Whether you're making the trip or just living vicariously, here are five things to do in Salt Lake City before the game.
Visit Temple Square
Salt Lake City's Temple Square is the most popular tourist attraction in Utah, drawing millions of visitors each year. The original temple was built in 1853 by Mormon settlers led by Brigham Young. The 35-acre complex now includes two visitors centers, restaurants, museums, a conference center and the Temple Square Tabernacle, home to the famous choir. Much of Temple Square is open to the public and other parts are accessible through guided tours.
Check out Olympic Park
Winter sports enthusiasts can make the short drive to Park City and check out Olympic Park, site of the 2002 Winter Games. Visitors can take a bobsled ride, go tubing down the Nordic Jump or visit the Alf Engen Ski Museum.
Stroll through Red Butte Garden
Located on the edge of the University of Utah campus, this 100-acre botanical garden contains a large conifer collection, an ornamental grass collection and many seasonal flowers, along with five miles of hiking and walking trails.
Try a local brew
Don't let the reputation fool you — Salt Lake City is a great place to try a local beer at one of the city's microbreweries. You can try a Hop Rising Double IPA at Squatters Pub, an old-school lager at Bohemian Brewery or a Golden Spike Hefeweizen at Uinta Brewing Company.
Catch Jazz/Celtics Friday night
Vivint Smart Home Arena should be hopping Friday night when the Utah Jazz play host to the Boston Celtics. Tickets start at $47 on Stubhub.
