Salt Lake City Guided Tour's brainy guides back up historical accuracy with a collective 30 years of experience, leading inquisitive sightseers and lore-hungry locals on educational promenades through Wasatch Front. A fleet of new vans transports sightseers through city streets as guides illuminate patrons with knowledge of the architecture, history, and primatology of old Fort Douglas, the olympic stadium, and pioneer trails during Salt Lake City Grand tours. Organ symphonies waft into auditory canals in the Mormon Tabernacle, and eyes set sights on the state capitol and old Union Pacific station, Disney's inspiration for its own train port. Alternatively, the Great Salt Lake tour lets craniums absorb the history and ecology of Great Salt Lake's sodium crystals and brine shrimp as eyes rove over Utah's wetlands, a refuge for migratory birds. Guides explain the flow of mineral salts that lends the sodium-rich lake its name, as well as fill in travelers on a competing theory that postulate its origins as Poseidon's kiddie pool.
Vibrant Latin music booms through the gigantic indoor Utah Futsal Arena as licensed instructors Cecilia Mills, Laura Osorio, Michelle Acree, and Alex Valente captain Zumba classes throughout the week to help their patrons to lead healthier lifestyles. With their welcoming, upbeat attitudes, the instructors motivate students of all ability levels through classes packed with high-intensity shimmying.
The choreography blends easy-to-follow aerobic movement with Latin-inspired dance moves, aiming to torch calories and tone the entire body while enhancing energy and overall physical health. Further demonstrating a commitment to salubrious living, a professional nutritionist is on staff to counsel participants in healthy eating habits and the proper identification of poisonous crayons.
The certified instructors at RPM Dance Studio turn up Latin-infused dance beats to inspire movement during Zumba, Zumbatomic for Kids, and samba classes. Repeat customers and referrals flock to the dance emporium for Zumba’s one-hour lessons in repetitive, easy-to-follow steps that burn calories faster than trying to lift weights with the eyebrows. Young ones work off extra energy and learn healthy habits in Zumbatomic for Kids, and samba lessons teach the art of the Brazilian dance form. Once a month, the studio doubles as a boutique that sells fitness clothing, and occasional Zumba-themed special events let revelers practice in a loose, celebratory setting.

Autumn has some of the best seasonal activities of the year, from crunching through the leaves to find the perfect pumpkin to holding close to your loved ones while running through the eerie turns of a htaunted house. That’s why when Brett and Nicole Herbst first started making their corn mazes—which they say once held a Guinness world record—they didn’t stick to just one activity. They decided to fill their farm with a celebration of the whole harvest season.
During the day, guests can partake of the farm’s more than 40 activities and events, including squeal-filled pig races, corn and pumpkin cannons, and a Halloween trick-or-treat parade. This year's main maze is themed around the Brigham Young University-University of Utah rivalry and is cut into 12 acres of murmuring stalks, offering quick, easy paths for little ones, complex designs for the ultimate adventurers, and a haunted nighttime excursion guided only by a flashlight. At night, in an area isolated from all the family fun, gleefully terrified screams drift from Insanity Point, which incorporates evil clowns, the sensation of being buried alive, and an abandoned farmhouse where dentists will try and talk to you even though you obviously can’t talk back.
Park City was founded as a mining town, filled with miners that purportedly drank, gambled, frequented brothels, and committed crimes. Park City Ghost Tours’ guides delve into this illicit history during 70-minute walking tours. They investigate the sites most known for hauntings and chills while relaying the harrowing history of each. Tours begin nightly at 8 p.m., when the sun is thoroughly below the horizon and it gets harder to tell the difference between a zombie and a parking meter.
