Utah is a special place to be when the holidays come around. As people descend on Salt Lake City for the ski season, they love all the city has to offer this time of year. Not only is it a great holiday atmosphere because of the brisk, snowy weather, there is also a lot of fun festivities, great shopping, and fun events in the downtown area. And, like the famous lighting of the Christmas tree in Rockefeller Center in New York City, the lights at Temple Square are a spectacle enjoyed by tourists and locals far and wide.

Nearby there is the City Creek Mall, and there are dozens of restaurants all within a block or two of the Square.
