2. Tube or Raft the Provo River

The weather is hot so cool off with a ride down the Provo River. Bring your own tubes and lifejackets or go through a company like High Country Adventure.

3. Go on a hike

Hiking in American Fork Canyon

4. Take a tour of a college campus


Head up to either UVU or BYU and tour around before all the students return for fall.

5. Go Geocaching

6. Go camping


Nothing's better than a tent, a bonfire, and a sky full of stars. Grab the family or some friends and enjoy the great outdoors.
