Any suggestions on how to spend it....will be downtown.
I think the temple and temple square is the big draw:
You can not go into the temple unless you are a member but they are tourist things outside of it.
I enjoyed a sampler set of beers and a pretzel at a local brewery's pub in the SLC airport on one trip. I visit family a little north from SLC every so often and went downtown once. I honestly don't recall anything other than maybe a hint of a recollection of seeing the temple.
Kinda hard to suggest anything in downtown SLC. SLC has a different feel than any other city I have been in.
Downtown, without a car, I assume? I love Salt Lake City, in part because I can satisfy my personal interests. Music, certain types of food (vegan), coffee, literature and books... Without knowing your interests, it's tough.
One thing I would recommend to almost anyone is the 901/902 bus. Yes, bus. For about $5.00, you can be in Park City in a little less than an hour. And it's not a wasted hour. Nice drive up. Park City is a little Disney-ish - pleasant and entertaining, thougn (at least for the passer-thru) not terribly deep. (I'm sure if you lived there, cared about its history and future, it'd be different. But for visitors...)
If you'd rather stay downtown, give me a clue: there are great bookstores, obviously the whole genealogy thing, the capitol, local arts...
Staying at the Little America Hotel....have between Noon and 4:00 to explore....does that help?
So if one has the option of choosing SLC as a 1 day stopover in mid / late October, will that be a good choice?
Salt Lake has an excellent light rail system which goes by Little America and to the SLC airport -- the Temple Square area is a must see -- people who aren't LSD can't go in the Temple, but there is a visitor's center and the Tabernacle and both are must sees that you can easily covered in a couple of hours -- Brigham Young's house is also worth seeing.
