Temple Square Ranks Among America's Top Tourist Attractions

Temple Square has long been Utah's more visited tourist attraction, and it consistently ranks among the most popular spots in America. This year Forbes Traveler puts Temple Square at number 16 in its list of the 25 top US attractions.

Here's a link to the Forbes list.

In spite of a struggling economy, 5 million visitors made Temple Square the 16th most visited site in the United States, according to Forbes.

In 2007, the square saw visitors from 83 countries and each of the 50 states, according to the LDS Church.

"We hope these visitors feel welcome and enjoy their time in Utah," church spokesman Scott Trotter said.
