Things to do for group of teenagers in November

We will be bringing a group of teenagers (mostly girls) to either Salt Lake City or Louisville for a Convention in November. We are looking for things to do (not too expensive) on our one day of sightseeing. What are some suggestions, so we can make our decision between the two cities?

I guess it really depends on what you are looking for.

If you are looking to get a "flavor" of the local culture I recommend spending the day downtown doing the walking tour of Temple Square <http://www.visittemplesquare.com/>. This one is free and there is a lot to see. You can hire a carriage and take a carriage tour also.

If you want some ski town action then Park City is your place. With its boutiques and quaint Main Street shops it is a shoppers paradise <http://www.parkcityinfo.com/>. Could be free if you just went window-shopping (which is what we do quite often).

If you want to do some skiing, which may be opened depending on how late in November and if we have had a significant storm or not, I recommend skiing in the Cottonwood Canyons (any of the four resorts are just great) <http://www.viamagazine.com/top_stories/articles/cottonwood05.asp>. Rather spendy but, hey, you are in Utah.

If you want a shopping experience I recommend The Gateway mall <http://www.shopthegateway.com/> and Cabela's <http://www.cabelas.com/cabelas/en/templates/community/aboutus/retail-detail.jsp?detailedInformationURL=/cabelas/en/content/community/aboutus/retail/retail_stores/lehi/lehi.html>. Window shopping is free.

Thanksgiving Point is also a fun attraction for the family. Their dinosaur museum is one of the largest in the country <http://www.thanksgivingpoint.com/>.

Or you could combine any of the above activities for a fun-filled day.

Good luck!

Another thing you could do is go tubing. There are several resorts that have tubing hills, and one is even on the way to Park City that is not affiliated with a ski resort.

Snowbasin's tubing hill is pretty fun, but is a pretty good drive. Depending on your budget you could go skiing for ~$68/pp which includes the rentals. Just purchase the tickets at a discount ski shop and rent the skis there. Snowboarding would be a similar price.
