If the Sundance Mountain Resort reminds you of a film festival of the same name, it's no coincidence—the sprawling mountain resort is owned by Robert Redford, the actor that founded the Sundance Film Festival. The festival is known for nurturing creative self-expression and this 4-star resort follows suit, with an on-site art gallery and artisan workshops. At the resort, you can see works from the Redford's personal art collection while sample the food that won a Utah's Best of State award from 2011–2013.

Provo, Utah: Mountain Views and Brigham Young University
Provo is one of Utah's largest cities, set amid the larger-than-life landscape of the Utah Valley, girded by mountain ranges on each side. In warmer months, tourists can hike and bike the nearby mountain trails, and take in postcard-worthy views of the autumn leaves.
Provo is also home to Brigham Young University. Affiliated with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, this university spans nearly 650 acres in the foothills of the Wasatch Mountains. The campus is home to some 30,000 students, a 112-foot bell tower, and several museums, including the BYU Museum of Art and the Museum of Paleontology, where you can see one of the world's biggest collections of dinosaur bones from the Jurassic Period.
