Downtown Salt Lake City's development radiated from Temple Square, the site of Utah's first Mormon church. These days, the temple Brigham Young built shares a block with Energy Solutions Arena, home to the Utah Jazz, and lies around the corner from downtown Salt Lake City nightlife.

Downtown also includes Main Street, the main business and commercial district of the city. The neighborhood is home to the burgeoning Gateway District, with a bustling open air shopping area and office space.

Sprawling across three downtown blocks, City Creek Center offers shopping and numerous restaurants options. A large farmer’s market runs weekly in the summer and bi-weekly indoors in the winter months at Rio Grande Depot. The Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center hosts live theater and special events. Beautiful Pioneer Park offers walking trails and community activities, such as summer weekly movies in the park.
