The 75 outdoor gurus who staff Al's Sporting Goods guide customers through dense forests of name-brand sporting apparel and adventure goods in its 32,000-square-foot retail store.

Native Americans first discovered the naturally warm waters of Crystal Hot Springs during their wintry travels through the Wasatch Mountain ranges. Sheltering that first wave of travelers, the hot springs later soothed the muscles of weary workers of the transcontinental railroad before being incorporated as a business in 1901. Separate hot and cold springs share space some 50 feet from each other, cooling or warming sinews and allowing visitors to immerse themselves in naturally high mineral content. Guests can also take refuge in more than 100 available camping sites and sample the fast and furious dips of the slide park. The aquatic expanse is open seven days a week over both the winter and summer, cooling down visitors during sweltering August days or warming them up after a January footrace against a yeti.

Tagge’s fruit stands overflow with the bright-orange gourds, which can be baked into a pie, carved with a spooky face, or baked into a spooky-faced pie.
