At the base of a highland ridge overlooking the Ogden Valley, Wolf Creek Utah Golf Course showcases an 18-hole track that is both challenging and charming. Surrounded by rugged vistas of nearby mountains, the course attracts recreational and, since 1990, professional golfers, who compete in the annual Utah Golf Association Championship for bragging rights for the player with the fastest caddy rickshaw. It features water hazards that come into play on 13 holes, as well as doglegs on holes 3, 5, and 12. The ninth hole, rated the course’s most difficult, is a 579-yard straightaway with a narrow, tree-lined fairway and a green that is protected by water in the front, bunkers in the back, and a territorial flagstick that growls at incoming putts.

The arctic artisans at Zeppe's Italian Water Ice concoct an innovative menu of frozen delights to satisfy even the most persnickety of sweet teeth. Cool down palates with a refreshing italian water ice—a fresh-fruit purée with the rich consistency of ice cream minus the fat, cholesterol, dairy, and incessant mobile jingle. The innovative treat comes in 25 rotating flavors (with 10 on the menu each day), including strawberry lemonade, root beer, and coconut crème ($1.59 for a kids' size, $2.29 for a regular, and $2.85 for a large). The creative menu also features old-fashioned custard, an egg-based, creamy mouth-pleaser, which showcases its rich, smooth texture in chocolate-lovers' chocolate, pure vanilla, or twist ($2.19 for a kids' size, $3.19 for a regular, $3.89 for a large).
In naming her restaurant after the Spanish word for "bridge," Viola, the owner of La Puente Ogden, pays homage to both the town where she grew up in New Mexico and to the start of her new life. After all, she decided to open this spot for Mexican food after the passing of her spouse in 1989. Today, it's a local favorite for authentic dishes, such as smothered burritos, tacos, and enchiladas.
At each of Fat Cats' five locations, strikes and spares light up the screens of automatic scoring systems. Bowling balls roll and skip down lanes in normal conditions, against retractable bumpers, or under the fluorescent glow of Thunder Alley, when the facility transforms into a music-filled fusion of a bowling alley and dance club. Each lane's crashing pins echo the softer clacking of putters at the glow-in-the-dark miniature golf course and the ringing lightshow of the arcade. Elsewhere, the scents of pizza and deep-fried bowling balls waft through the fun haven. Each Fat Cats location partners with different restaurants, including The Pizza Factory at its Salt Lake facility and Champzz Bar at the Westminster location.
