After restful nights in their satellite-TV- and WiFi-equipped rooms, guests at Comfort Inn meander down to the hotel’s dining room to fuel up for the day ahead with a complimentary hot breakfast. Post-breakfast, they can be spotted splashing in the indoor heated pool or taking off to explore nearby attractions such as Timpanogos Cave or Alta Ski Resort. A pet-friendly establishment, Comfort Inn welcomes furry companions and sassy cartoon sidekicks to tag along for an additional fee.
A mere half mile down the road from Comfort Inn, aquanauts of all ages revel in the crystalline waters of Cowabunga Bay. The '60s-themed park keeps bathing suits hydrated thanks to its sprawling assortment of attractions, including Cowabunga Splash, a six-story water play structure replete with bridges, tunnels, and upwards of 300 interactive water features. A fleet of nine water slides helps adventurers to meet their daily adrenaline quotas, and the gentle Cowabunga River ferries inner-tube riders along its lazy waters. Chefs bustle about the onsite Cowabunga Island Grille, silencing growling tummies with pizzas and burgers, and shaded cabanas can be rented for private dining and lounging.
SwimKids jumpstarts tykes' swimming strokes and socialization skills in classes conducted in an indoor pool heated to a balmy 90 degrees. The program traces its roots back to 1983, when Liz Walker sought out a class that could teach her own 18-month-old daughter to swim. Her search led her to a local swimming pool where tykes as young as 10 months were impressively proficient in the water. Liz studied their method and began teaching on her own, a profession she has continued to pursue for the past 30 years. Today, the enthusiastic instructors at SwimKids continue to get results, helping develop pool-ready skills in kids as young as 3 months old.
Seven Peaks' multiple locales thrill guests with attractions ranging from water slides to go-karts and paintball. At Seven Peaks Waterpark Provo, the aquatically inclined can cascade down water slides, seesaw around the mammoth half-pipe tube ride, or ride the crests of the 400,000-gallon wave pool. Guests can scan the attractions at Seven Peaks Waterpark Salt Lake City, such as unique water slides and the Amazon River, then plummet off the Cliffhanger, a curvy slide that ends with a sudden 5-foot drop into a pool. The Lehi and Orem locations house an assortment of waterless excursions, including mini golf, go-karts, batting cages, and laser tag.

Navy Special Operators are recognized as some of the world's most feared warriors. Run using the same aquatic training program that tests the mettle of real-life divers and explosives techs, Hellbender's Amphibious Bootcamp sends exercisers plunging in and out of the water as they blast through a blend of calisthenics and aquatic exercises. A diverse collection of former sailors, soldiers, and firefighters lead the classes, shouting encouragement as as students switch from pushups and pull-ups to freestyle, breaststroke, and sprint swims. Movable obstacles including sandbags, weights, and decommissioned bathyspheres also wait beneath the depths, challenging endurance as they bulk up screaming muscles. Classes welcome all fitness levels, but exercisers should be able to tread water, swim at least 25 yards without stopping, and arrive with their own goggles and swimsuit.
