Heber Valley Artisan Cheese is a can’t miss if you are in the area. You may have seen some of their cheese around Utah. but this is a place to get it at the source. At the creamery, you can buy some of the cheese, have a freshly made grilled cheese, and they offer tours with tastings, cheese making classes, and even seasonal events. Plus, you can see the cows that are treated like royalty just to get some of the best Holstein milk for the cheese. 

The Crater

Despite the name, it’s not actually an open crater. The Crater at the Homestead Resort in Midway, Utah is actually a geothermal spring, hidden within a 55-foot tall, beehive-shaped limestone rock. With a large vent at the top, it will make you feel like you are swimmi in a warm relaxing volcano. You can swim in The Crater but for the more adventurous, you can go scuba diving in The Crater. The max scuba diving depth is 4o feet due to its high elevation. Make sure you book a reservation in advance as they tend to fill up fast!
