Travel Agency
“Timpanogos Cave National Monument up American Fork Canyon consists of three spectacular caverns accessible to the public with a one-hour guided tour. The Timpanogos Cave trail is 1.5 miles each way and gains 1,000 feet in elevation. It's a little steep but doable for most. Strollers are not allowed, though the trail is paved. Cave tours are limited and sell out frequently, so it's best to reserve tickets in advance.”

Shopping Centre
“One of the oldest shopping malls in the USA. In fact, did you know that the indoor mall concept was created right here in UT? By Brigham Young? The first ever was ZCMI, which stood for Zion's Cooperative Mercantile Institution. The first one was created in Salt Lake City, and I believe this was the second one. It has been through a few renovations since the pioneer days, and is undergoing one now. A great place to shop, great indoor play areas for the kids (especially during winter months), and a comprehensive food court. It is surrounded by your favorite restaurants. ”

Natural Feature
“Bridal Veil Falls is a 607-foot-tall (185 m) double cataract waterfall in the south end of Provo Canyon. The trail is a 1.4 mile heavily trafficked out and back and is good for all skill levels. You can park your car in the parking lot and then walk to the waterfall on a completely paved trail. I've taken large groups, my family, and even my grandparents here a number of times. ”
