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

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.

We had a family gathering here and among our group was my mother who has difficulty walking. She has a handicap parking permit. We came on a Saturday afternoon and we could not find a single handicap parking spot that was available anywhere. All the visitor parking lots were full. I dropped my mother off as close to the campus as we could get and then I parked far away and hiked back.
BYU is enormous. It is a beautiful campus in a great location – surrounded by mountains. But they need more handicap accessible parking options.

Great paved trail for the 12 mile run. Gentle rolling hills. Not a lot of elevation gain. Beautiful scenery. Only complaint are the people on the trail. Not rude but not friendly. In KC, when we run or bike, we wave at each other. Not here in Utah. Keep your friendly to yourself. Great trail!

Considering that this was a pioneer tabernacle that burned down and was reconstructed as a L.D.S. Temple, it is an amazing building. The grounds, though young, are nice. But the beauty is in the building. The effort made to correctly match the previous interior and to be faithful to the pioneer heritage is fantastic. However, to truly see the interior you have to be a member of the L.D.S. faith and have a Temple Recommend. That should not stop you from viewing the exterior of the building and all it represents.

Front Runner provides a scenic, productive way to travel the Wasatch Front, traveling to work, play, or the airport. While others are slogging through bumper-to-bumper traffic, you can enjoy reading, doing work, or browsing using the wi-fi. Buy tickets or a pass at the kiosk.

A great little museum. A whole bunch of taxidermed animals, many in very good habitats. Really good for kids. Like going to the zoo, but all indoors. Big enough for a wide variety, but not so big that anyone will get too tired. Good flow, but layout also makes it easy to go back to things if you want.

This playground is designed for children with all abilities and disabilities; swing for wheelchairs, mom/baby swings, zip line for both. Our g-kids love this park! We grab dinner to eat under the nearby pavilion and the kids can eat then play to their hearts content. Rock wall, Neos sound machine, slides for two, ground level merry-go-round...you name it! Well thought out and planned! Love, love this playground!

Very easily accessible water falls from the parking lot. Very busy location when it is warm. People try to climb the falls. I am surprised more people don’t slip and fall and break some bones. It was too crowded in the summer to take any nice pictures. But the kids enjoyed being splashed by the mist at the base of the falls.

Chock full of pleasant spots to pull over for a hike, a picnic (there are tables seemingly everywhere along the road upward). Even snow on the ground in March!
