• Camping at Cherry Hill Camping Resort (Ogden): This fun-packed campground offers something for everybody: a water park with slides, pools, and even a pirate ship, plus miniature golf, batting cages, and aeroball (it's kind of like basketball). It's like staying in a theme park -- a kid's dream come true.

  • Taking a Ride on the Heber Valley Historic Railroad: Take a trip back in time on the "Heber Creeper," so called because of the way this historic steam train inches up the canyon from Provo. A ride on this once-proud passenger and freight line lets you experience travel the way it was in your grandparents' day.

  • Exploring Northeast Utah's Dinosaurland: This is the real Jurassic Park -- no special effects needed. First stop: Utah Field House of Natural History State Park in Vernal. Stroll through the Dinosaur Garden to admire the 18 life-size dinosaurs and other prehistoric creatures. Next, head to Dinosaur National Monument to see and touch -- yes, touch -- real fossilized dinosaur bones.

  • Discovering Zion National Park: The Junior Ranger Program, available at most national parks, is extensive here, with morning and afternoon activities for kids all summer. They'll have so much fun, they won't notice they're learning about what makes this natural wonder so special.
