Sundance Resort

Owned by Robert Redford and known for its film festival, Sundance is uncrowded and offers top-notch skiing and atmosphere.

Reviewed By greenjay1 - Williams, Arizona

There's a lot going on at Sundance in the summer. Concerts, mountain biking, hiking, zip line and scenic chair lift. We really enjoyed the chair lift ($15/person). Parking is free. All the staff in the shops and adventures were super polite and friendly. Waitress in the Foundry restaurant, not so much. Nice way to spend an afternoon or couple days.

Timpanogos Cave National Monument

One of the sites in Utah for cave exploring.

Reviewed By Michael M - Corrales, New Mexico

Even though the path is paved, the hike up to the cave is challenging. Excited by opportunity to tour the three caves. Unfortunately, our tour guide was short on facts, history and anecdotes even though she said she had been giving cave tours since a teenager. Her knowledge of geology was very generalized. It was a bit of a disappointment to hike all that way only to have a mediocre tour guide. Hopefully, those of you who are reading this review will have better luck. Overall, Timpanogos Cave is worth the visit.

Thanksgiving Point

Thanksgiving Point offers an array of different activities including 55-acre gardens, Museum of Ancient Life, Mammoth Screen 3D theater, Water Tower Plaza, Harvest Restaurant, the Emporium, Farm Country and a 18-hole golf course.

Reviewed By Brooke M - Rexburg, Idaho, USA

We got the explorer pass which allows you to visit The museum of natural history, farm country, the museum of natural curiosity, and the gardens. In one day's time, we were only able to get to three of the four. We left for dinner and then went back. We probably could have gotten to everything if we ate on the premises. Our kids' age range from 13 to 4. Everyone had so much fun! Another review said it wasn't worth a drive, but I disagree. We drove down from Idaho and made a weekend out of it! Totally worth it. We all want to go back at some future point.

Hale Center Theater Orem

Reviewed By Ron B - Orem, Utah

Yes it is home grown. Yes it is a small theatre in the round. And YES it is better than Broadway! Yup, been to great theaters in NY, Houston, Portland, San Francisco, Austin, Moscow, Dar es Salaam, Salt Lake and Provo so as an ordinary guy I️ feel I know what I’m talking about when I️ say the Orem Hale is truly the best. We saw Hello Dolly. Best stage performance of this classic that we have seen. Amazing skills, voices, and choreography. You want the best in theatre, it’s right here in Orem.

Lindon Aquatics Center

Reviewed By freewaymaster - utah, usa

This place mostly for little kids. Some teen areas like the Lazy river or Flow rider. Too pricy though. We paid $267 for a Family season pass and they did not change the Operation hours sign. Only open until 6pm most days. Terrible Deal! We will NEVER have another pass again! Good place to go if you are bored.

Coconut Cove

Reviewed By Rodney J

I had a surprise 70th birthday party at Coconut Cove. It was wonderful. While we adults talked, the grandchildren had an unforgettable experience playing on the abundant indoor playground equipment. My grandchildren loved it.
At every party the question arises, "How are you going to keep the children entertained?" Well Coconut Cove solves the problem for you. My grandchildren still talked about how much fun they had at my birthday party. I plan on having my next birthday party there also.

Alpine Trail Rides

Reviewed By Angie H - Salt Lake City, Utah

TWO THUMBS UP! This was the best horseback riding experience I've ever had. Dave McConnell was very attentive to the beginners in our group and also provided a little extra fun for those of us who were more experienced. I highly recommend Alpine Trail Rides to tourists visiting Utah or to those who have lived here for years and need a little reminder of the beauty that surrounds us. Thanks again for an amazing adventure, Dave! We'll be back soon!

I wanted to come here because of the head thing where you can only see your head and your body is missing but it was out of service. My kid had fun I like the Waterworks part of it. The fish were cool. We were only here for about an hour and a half we were just killing time we had passes it was okay will have to come back when we have more time and money for my kid to do the Canopy Tours

La Belle Vie Salon & Spa

Reviewed By Michael S - Cathedral City, California

I recently had my hair cut by Kate Wessman at La Belle Vie Salon in Pleasant Grove, UT., and it was the BEST salon experience I've ever had. I actually enjoyed the whole process: Kate is a highly trained and wonderfully competent cosmetologist who has just enough savoir-faire to make you look and feel your best; she is genuinely committed to providing you with the best service possible (one that won't disappoint, like so many do in this industry). I would definitely suggest Kate Wessman at La Belle Vie Salon to anyone looking for a stylist, or haircut, in general. She is warm, friendly, and considerably skilled at her craft (she even used a hot towel, oil, and a straight-edge razor to clean up my neck!). I can't recommend her highly enough. Make your next hair appointment with Kate Wessman at La Belle Vie Salon! You'll be pleasantly surprised by what results.

American Fork Canyon

Reviewed By Raylene J - American Fork, Utah

With a lovely river, rich pines and furrs, oaks and aspens, Timpanogos Cave Nat'l Monument, Tibble Fork Reservoir, Timpooneke Trail, Bear Trail, Pine Hollow Trail, Mary Ellen Gulch, and numerous other 'attractions' for the lover of outdoor beauty, this beautiful canyon has it all. But with the increased traffic flow, and the threat of Snowbird Ski Resort building in Mineral Basin, this beauty is threatened to become a highway that's hard to maneuver. Ride bikes or hike in this canyon, carpool, and do what you can to preserve this oasis before it's gone.
