Have You been in Salt Lake City, Utah?

One of city entrance

I just passed through Salt Lake City in one of my trips to the North States. The city, in my opinion is calm and peace.

No crowd and rush hour compared to Chicago, New York, Los Angeles and even New Orleans in the southern state.

In respect to population is quite lower, around 200 thousand people only. Surprisingly, 51% is Mormon. We can assume that it is capital of Mormon.

If you never stay or visit USA, you might not know what Mormon is.

I quoted from Google “Mormons believe that Jesus paid for the sins of the world and that all people can be saved through his atonement. Mormons accept Christ's atonement through faith, repentance, formal covenants or ordinances such as baptism, and consistently trying to live a Christ-like life.”

A station for light rail system.

Public transportation is better than other cities across America. City has a light rail transportation to cover inner city and suburbs.

In addition to light train, the city also provide commuter trains and buses. We could access almost any part of city by public transportations.

Airport, ski resorts, public buildings and important public entertains are connected with public transportation networks.

The Mormon church

You can buy a round trip ticket from down town to any available places you wish. You could back to down town quickly and easily.

Do not worry, there are some trains on Saturday and Sunday, from early morning to mid night.

Have you been in or planning to go to Salt Lake City?

  5. I've never been to Salt Lake City. That's good to know that it's pretty quiet:) I've been to LA, Orlando, and Buffalo (NY), but that's about it.

  6. I never realized Salt Lake City had such a high Mormon population. Public transportation is so important for our environment. It sounds like they do it right in this city. I have never been there but would love to visit that part of the country someday.

  7. I lived in Utah as a gentile (what non-Mormons are called) for a little over a decade and had to be in SLC at least monthly. It is a great city. Traffic there was bad in the 90s as everything was under construction, but when the light rail came on (for the Olympics) and with the completion of the freeways, traffic became better but it could still be tough during the rush hour.

    As for the Mormons, that’s only a small part of what they believe. They believe in a pre-existence and you are sent to this world to be tested. Based on your tests will depend on where you end up in eternity. There is an outer darkness (where their enemies and really bad folks end up), but everyone else ends up in some kind of paradise and the really good Mormons end up being like god... It is a church built around works and is totally different from other Christian traditions (Protestant, Catholic and Orthodox). Instead of calling them Christian, I think they are (to quote Jan Shipps, a scholar who studied them) a “new religious tradition.”

    The LDS Church does not want to be called Mormon anymore, but old habits are hard to break. Also, if you head south of Salt Lake Valley, into Provo (called “happy valley” for the amount of anti-depressions taken) you will find yourself in an area with a Mormon population of 90+%.
