Gardner Village is a really lovely, fun shopping experience for both kids and adults. It is exactly as the title says, a beautifully laid out, tiny village with some authentically historic buildings. Though it's a little out-of-the-way for the average visitor to Salt Lake City (located about 25 minutes away from downtown, in West Jordan), it's well worth the effort if you have the time. Most of the shops are small, locally owned businesses, and you can actually find a number of items handmade in Utah. There's a great candy shop that also has really good cocoa and ice cream, a toy store, a knitting store, kid's clothing, a great consignment housewares store, and so on. During the Christmas season, they have scenes from an elf village place throughout, with a scavenger hunt for the kids. In the field next to the village, they often have activities set up for kids - pony rides, and so forth. I highly recommend it as a shopping outing, especially if you're looking for something a little different.

Since we come from out of town, this place is the perfect opportunity for a day trip. Honestly, if you've been to larger city aquariums, you're not going to find this one equally grand. However, it is a lovely aquarium given the location. It has...MoreHello, Thank you for your review and feedback. We're glad you and your family enjoyed the Aquarium and the otters and penguins!

Megaplex Theaters, The District

Reviewed By chevelleskick - Herriman, Utah

We attend weekly. Recently we have experienced bad popcorn and luxury seats that dont heat any longer. Not really a big deal but Megaplex contacted us and we sent them a statement. I didnt thin they would respond and were just collecting data. Wow that evening they apologized and offered tickets and popcorn for the review. We really like going to the show there and will return.

We love HTC and have come attended numerous performances over the years. Such a great venue for these wonderful musicals. We just saw Seven Brides for Seven Brothers the other night. It's one of our favorite musicals and HTC did not disappoint. Everything was great. The scenery, the music, and the actors were fantastic. It really is a wonderful little place to visit. We hope to return after they have relocated.

Fashion Place Shopping Mall

Reviewed By Murray-ite - Murray, Utah

This mall has changed a lot over the years. There used to be much more variety in the type of stores. Now it seems that more than half the mall is pricey women's clothes and Makeup shops. They seem to cater to a narrower market;. Young women who don't care about price. We do enjoy the restaurants. And there used to be a TCBY's yogurt store that was always busy, but the manager said the rent was so high they couldn't make it there. Too bad. I have heard that the mall management charges too much for their space. I guess that's why the stores are more pricey.

Topgolf Salt Lake City

Topgolf is the premier golf entertainment complex where the competition of sport meets your favorite local hangout. Players hit golf balls containing computer microchips that track each shot's accuracy and distance while also awarding points for hitting targets on the outfield. Each venue offers an upscale, laid-back experience that features climate-controlled hitting bays, event spaces for groups of all sizes, and an impressive food and drink menu. Let's Play!

Reviewed By TravelerRob64 - Mount Airy, Maryland, United States

First time visiting a Topgolf and loved it. Great concept - have fun working on your swing while visiting with friends, having drinks, and enjoying great food. I found the challenges to be engaging and fun, the food was better than I expected, and the service was perfect. We went back 3 days later and had an equally great time. I live on the East Coast and wish I had one closer than 1-hour away. I think this concept is great.
Only complaint - I had a couple shots (in the target) that didn't register. Other than that - it was exceptional.

Just returned from my second Westwater Canyon trip and what an amazing time. This company does it right and the trip was absolutely perfect. A big thanks to Colter, Rolf, Vern, Sandy and Josh for doing such an outstanding job taking care of everything. They love their work and in so doing make the entire experience simply fantastic. Holiday sets a bar that few others can meet and we are already thinking about another trip next year.

All Star Lanes Sports Lounge

Reviewed By Andrew T

Great place to spend some fun and entertaining time with family or friends. They have 44 lanes but you might encounter a wait. No worries they give you a pager and you can go spend a little time in the arcade.

We went on Saturday night and it was cosmic bowling under the backlights. Just adds a little more to the fun night. The snack bar is reasonably priced, but can take awhile so order early.

Mulligan's Golf and Games

Reviewed By cannonater - riverton,utah

Had a few minutes to burn so took my son on the par 3 course.... Course is in poor condition at best and runs parallel to driving range ( no fence separating the 2) Needless to say you are constantly stepping over range balls and looking over your shoulder thinking you might get hit! Service was good.
