Shopping Mall
“One of the oldest shopping malls in the USA. In fact, did you know that the indoor mall concept was created right here in UT? By Brigham Young? The first ever was ZCMI, which stood for Zion's Cooperative Mercantile Institution. The first one was created in Salt Lake City, and I believe this was the second one. It has been through a few renovations since the pioneer days, and is undergoing one now. A great place to shop, great indoor play areas for the kids (especially during winter months), and a comprehensive food court. It is surrounded by your favorite restaurants. ”
