Color Me Mine puts paintbrushes and pottery in the mitts of customers old and young. Budding Toyozo Arakawas will follow six easy steps to craft beautifully painted ceramics, first choosing a ceramic piece (most cost between $8 and $14) from Color Me Mine's selection of hundreds of seasonally changing items. After charting out the desired design from individual imagination or Color Me Mine's technique sheets, painters will select an underglaze from Color Me Mine's cast of more than 60 colors, then apply paint with the focus of a peregrine falcon occupied by a Rockwellian spirit. Color Me Mine handles all kiln-firing work, allowing clients to take home their final products within three to five days. A studio fee of $5 for children under 12 and $8 for adults and children over 12 covers all paints, supplies, glazing, and firing.
Like the iced-delight-swirled Italian artisans, Dolcetti’s all-natural gelato is made from scratch and prepared with fresh, local, and seasonal fruits and ingredients. Flavors rotate daily in Dolcetti's repertoire of more than 70 gelatos. Stick with classics such as vanilla bean and chocolate, or wake from dreams of cows balancing papayas on their noses with inspired culinary concoctions such as lavender-honey gelato churned with home-raised bee nectar ($3.25–$4.75 for a scoop). Or, spicy up dessert with a sample of jalapeño chocolate. With an abundance of fresh fruit ripening in the coming months, expect fresh flavors such as forest berry, lemon, and apricot. Dolcetti will also be rolling out fat- and dairy-free sorbettos.
Park City Bread & Bagel's dining room is laid-back and comfortable, helping to help people welcome the morning pleasantly after spending a night dreaming of steel children and living motorcycles. There's also a television and free WiFi.
In the shadow of snow-capped mountains, a bicycle winds through dirt trails and beneath the lush foliage of forest canopies. Wasatch Bike Tours' owner, Chris Schmidt, calls these steep peaks and the troll-run hotels of the Rocky Mountains his home, and his business aims to help others discover the region's varied landscapes. An active member of several mountain-biking organizations, Schmidt brings more than 16 years of competitive experience to his tours. On half- and full-day adventures, riders wind through preapproved trails and uncharted off-road terrain. In addition to burning calories, the journeys pass through parklands and canyons.

The bright interior is an ideal place to nosh, with walls of citrus yellow and green stoking already burgeoning stomach grumbles.
Stepping into The Sweet Tooth Fairy shop is like walking into another era: round tables and high-backed chairs surround an old-fashioned soda fountain, and oldies music plays softly nearby. Pale-blue walls and white crown molding stand behind a glass case full of sweet treats, which are baked daily and earned proprietor Megan Faulkner Brown two appearances on The Rachael Ray Show—one when she was still baking in her basement kitchen, and the next three years later, when her business had grown to nine locations.
Megan uses the "most ordinary" ingredients to whip up her extraordinary pastries, which include chocolate-chip and iced oatmeal cookies, brownies, lemon bars, and a variety of cupcakes and full-grown cakes. Signature cakebites don coats of chocolate or white chocolate flecked with sprinkles. Flavors of baked goods rotate monthly, with some favorites available on a daily basis. Gluten-free options are available, as are frosting shots designed to save time usually spent licking every drop of frosting off the top of a full-size cake.
