1. Explore Homestead Crater (Now called the Utah Crater)

The Homestead Crater is a natural geothermal crater hidden in a 55-foot-high beehive-like limestone cliff. The water in the reef is a constant 90-96 degrees Fahrenheit, making it the perfect place to swim, snorkel, or soak in the mineral waters. The crater is the only warm scuba diving destination in the continental US, offering a unique underwater experience for divers. Visitors can access the crater through a tunnel at the base, leading to a deck and soaking area. This natural wonder is a place for relaxation and an opportunity to marvel at the incredible forces of nature that created it.

2. Enjoy the Swiss-themed Midway

Midway is renowned for its Swiss heritage, which is celebrated annually during the Swiss Days Festival. The town's Swiss-themed architecture, complete with chalets and bakeries, offers a quaint and charming atmosphere. Strolling through the town, visitors can enjoy local quaint restaurants and visit local shops for unique crafts and goods; if you are brave enough to visit over the Labor Day weekend, you can attend Swiss Days. The event also features a parade, live music, and various cultural demonstrations, making it a vibrant celebration of Midway's rich heritage.

3. Take a Hike or Mountain Bike in Wasatch Mountain State Park

Wasatch Mountain State Park offers various outdoor activities against the stunning Wasatch Mountains. With over 23,000 acres of preserved wilderness, visitors can enjoy hiking, mountain biking, and horseback riding on trails that offer breathtaking views of the valley and surrounding mountains. The park also features 36 holes of golf and campgrounds. In the winter, it transforms into a snowy wonderland for snowshoeing and cross-country skiing, making it a year-round destination for outdoor enthusiasts.

4. Go Ice Fishing or Boating on Deer Creek Reservoir

Deer Creek Reservoir is a haven for water sports enthusiasts. The reservoir is perfect for boating, kayaking, and paddleboarding in the warmer months. The reservoir is also a popular fishing spot, known for its abundant populations of trout and bass. In the winter, the frozen lake becomes an ideal spot for ice fishing, offering a serene and chilly adventure for those willing to brave the cold.

5. Visit the Soldier Hollow Nordic Center
