Salt Lake City Trip

Join me in September for my 22st trip to the Family History Library in Salt Lake City, Utah. Royal City Travel (Guelph) will handle travel arrangements for us. We’ll fly from Toronto on Sunday, September 4, 2016. You can choose to stay for one or two weeks. (We can accommodate other departure points. Please inquire for prices.)

FAMILY HISTORY LIBRARY

For family historians, there is no place like the Family History Library—an unimaginable collection of original records on microfilm from all over the world, free access to subscription databases and an extensive collection of genealogies, local histories and research handbooks. The best features, though, are the knowledgeable staff, top-notch equipment, and the opportunity to grab some concentrated research time in a too-busy life!

GREATER SALT LAKE CITY

Salt Lake City also has some of the most spectacular desert and mountain scenery in the U.S.A. Our hotel is just a short walk from the magnificent Salt Lake Temple, the Mormon Tabernacle, major concert halls and shopping. TRAX, the city’s electric transit system (free in the downtown area) will take you to more shopping and points of interest. A short drive or bus ride will take you to the Great Salt Lake, state parks, many historic sites and Olympic-class ski resorts.

Salt Lake City is lovely in September. Plenty of warmth through the day and cool evenings. The beautiful gardens of Temple Square will full of glorious perennials and fragrant herbs. The surrounding mountainsides will be rich with the purples and golds of fall.

ACCOMMODATION

Located just 2 1/2 blocks from the Family History Library and Temple Square, the Carlton Hotel, built in the 1920s, is a friendly, 45-room hotel with cable TV and a refrigerator in each unique room. A full cooked-to-order breakfast (or continental if you prefer) is included. Our prices are based in either single or double rooms (as you specify). In addition, a variety of economical suites with cooking facilities are available for groups of three or more people–please inquire. Regular van transportation to and from the Family History Library is provided free of charge.

THE TOUR PACKAGE WILL INCLUDE:

  • round trip airfare from Toronto*
  • transportation to and from the hotel in Salt Lake City
  • hotel accommodation for 7 or 14 nights* including breakfast
  • a special group dinner
  • introduction to the Family History Library
  • walking tours to points of interest
  • all applicable taxes

* NOTE: We are very flexible! We can also arrange for you to travel from a different airport and join the group in Salt Lake City. We can extend your stay beyond the 7 or 14 nights, or arrange for you to travel on to a different destination. Prices will vary. Please enquire.

PACKAGE PRICES WILL BE ANNOUNCED SOON.
