    La Quinta Inn & Suites Salt Lake City Airport, Salt Lake City, Utah

    cheap, cheerful, decent place to stay. BUT don't stay here if you are allergic to pets. All rooms allow pets.

  • 2. Temple Square
    Temple Square, Salt Lake City, Utah

    Awesome. You have to go and experience temple square. Be sure to go through the family video exhibit next to the Christ statue in the north visitors center.

  • 3. The Lion House
    The Lion House, Salt Lake City, Utah

    Good quality food. A bit odd eating in the 'basement.'

  • 4. Clark Planetarium
    Clark Planetarium, Salt Lake City, Utah

    My kids loved the laser rock show in the evening. The 3d IMAX was ok.

  • 5. Hampton Inn and Suites Orem
    Hampton Inn and Suites Orem, Orem

    Great place to stay in Orem/Provo. Clean, large rooms. We had a suite with a full kitchen and could sleep 7 in a pinch with a roll-away bed.

  • 6. Brigham Young University
    Brigham Young University, Provo

    What can I say- it's where I met my wife. My kids are both looking forward to attending if they can get in. I hope they can. Taking them while they're young gives them incentive to work hard in school, and stay on the right track.

  • 7. Purple Turtle
    Purple Turtle Incorporated, Pleasant Grove

    HUGE milkshakes made of any combination you can dream up. My kids had heard us talk about it for years. Prices have gone up, but it's still a fun 'only in utah' destination.

  • 8. Sonic Drive In

    Drive-in burger joint known for it's great drinks. My kids printed a map on the Sonic website that plotted all of the Sonics between California and Provo. It gave them something to look forward to during the 12 hour drive.

  • 9. Tucanos Brazilian Grill
    Tucanos Brazilian Grill, Provo

    AWESOME! They keep bringing out wonderful grilled meats, vegetables, and even pineapple. Go at lunch time. It's less expensive and just as good. Fantastic meal that will make you wonder how meat could have so much flavor.
