Donut Falls

Reviewed By turbotrevor

This is a great and wonderful hike. The hike is pretty easy to the falls and less than a mile. Once you get there, the scramble up to the actual falls and small cave can be pretty tough, especially if there has been recent rain. Take shoes for wading if you want to get close to the falls. And get there early if you go on the weekend. Only bathrooms are pit toilets.

We spent 4 hours there, and it was worth the trip. We started at the special exhibition of Nature's amazing machines, flight, body cooling and warming, walking, lifting etc. Interactive displays for kids and adults, and all the displays still worked. We stopped by their Life Section and enjoyed the Tree of Life digital display, the dinosaurs and the large mammal skeletons, and gems. There are 4 levels with all sorts of different exhibits, something is sure to tickle your fancy.

We spent a couple of hours waling through these gardens that are situated on the hill behind the University of Utah campus. The gardens have been recently renovated and are very special! There are beautiful views facing west across the U of U campus and the valley below. There are plenty of places to sit and relax, too.

Robs Wildlife

Offer guided wildlife tours throughout Northern Utah. Our most popular tours include the West Desert Wild Horses (with over 200 wild mustangs) and Antelope Island for viewing bison, owls, and pronghorn.

Reviewed By pictograms - 'the world

Robs Wildlife tours take you to the most interesting spots including a fabulous day exploring wild horses in their natural habitat. If you can make a day free while in the Salt Lake City area, this is a life-changing experience for anyone interested in horses, nature, photography and a chance to watch these magnificent animals roam their territory. The herds reproduce on the plains so often you will see young foal in addition to the stallions fighting to claim their position. Imagine going back in time to the vast empty spaces of the wild West. Rob knows the area intimately and is full of good direction for helping you to capture the good picture.This day trip with Robs Wildlife is not to be missed.

LDS Conference Center

Reviewed By mrsagf - washington dc

Yet more massive, brutalist architecture, with a good attempt to soften it by instituting rooftop gardens. Lines were long for the Thursday evening rehearsal of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir (this is the summer venue), but no worries, the hall seats 21,000. This choir ARRIVES PREPARED, with music already learned. What a difference that makes.

Eaglewood Golf Course

Reviewed By Bigredmachine

It has taken me a long time to learn to like this course and I still have a few problems with it. Let me start with the overall layout; particularly the back nine where you get the impression that the housing was laid-out first and what was not usable for housing sites was left for the golf course. The holes are squeeze between rows of houses and holes 11-13 feel like repeats. Also, the back nine (especially, hole 14) is definitely walking-unfriendly. The front nine is not a bad walk, but you will have a climb back to the clubhouse at the turn.
I have learned to like this course for the following reasons:
• Accessibility; it is usually pretty easy to get on, particularly in the afternoons.
• The front nine design, which is walk-able, helps make up for the mundane design of the back nine.
• Practice area is very good with a nice driving range and a large undulating practice green
• Club house staff, particularly a young man named John, is very friendly and do a great job getting golfers out on the course.
• The club house restaurant, run by a local restaurateur (Carmack’s), is excellent and they make the best burger in Davis county.
Their rate is reasonable at $14 for nine and $28 for 18 holes with a cart fee of $7 per side (as of 7/2015). However, they do run lots of discount (check their web site or Groupon before you go) so you should be able to find a less expensive rate.
The course plays 6772 yards from the blue, 6075 yards from the white and 5173 yards from the red, so pick the tees appropriate to your skill level and you will have more fun and the golfers playing behind you will be happier as well.

Cathedral of the Madeleine

Reviewed By Lebasi10

I attended eveningmass at the cathedral after arriving in SLC on a Sunday. It was a beautiful experience: the homily, the music, the gorgeous architecture... Parking was difficult, especially since I arrived a bit late. I stayed for a while after mass ended and thoroughly enjoyed several minutes of silence and prayer.

Reviewed By Meredith C - Louisiana

We went to Park City right after Christmas (2016) and I am SO thankful we found James with Ride Utah! I waited until the last minute to book ski lessons, and it ended up working out perfectly. I couldn't see my first-time-skiing husband doing well with a big class, so I looked for private lessons. I called the number listed on the website on a Monday night, hoping for lessons the next morning. James called back within 10 minutes, and was able to make it work. Because all of the other beginner ski instructors were already booked for the day, he came out to teach us himself! My husband and I met him on the mountain first thing the next morning and spent the first half of the day learning basics and getting comfortable hopping around the mountain. I never felt silly for not being a great skier, and James took time to focus specifically on what my husband needed. He gave a great pointers to him (my husband is 6'3" and struggled skiing being so tall) and by the end of our half day of lessons, we were comfortably skiing down greens. My only regret is that they were fully booked for the afternoon, so we had to end at a half day! I 100% recommend this great family-owned company for your ski lessons in Utah!

We stopped by here for a visit to see the organ and maybe hear some info about it. When we walked in, there was a woman demonstrating the acoustics, but no one to give a tour or info. We are looking forward to coming to their bell practice session on Wed and the choir on Thurs.
