The Silvercar Salt Lake City location is off-site of the Salt Lake City International Airport. The capital of Utah is bordered by the Great Salt Lake and the Wasatch Range. The Salt Lake valley has stunning landscapes and is convenient to the wilderness that tempts visitors with year-round activities. The canyon breezes moderate the hot summer afternoons and the snowy winter temps are warmer than other ski destinations.
Although known as the center of Mormon church, the city also hosted the Winter Olympics in 2002, which brought economic growth to the city. Formally known as the Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter-day Saints (LDS), the Mormon church is headquartered in Temple Square. The 10 acres in the heart of downtown features both the majestic Salt Lake Temple, built in the 19th century, as well as Assembly Hall. The renowned Mormon Tabernacle Choir performs in the domed Tabernacle. Visitors can tour Temple Square for free, but only active Mormons may enter the Holy Temple.
