Fun Free Things To Do In Provo
Provo “Welcome Home” is the third largest city in Utah and it is consistently recognized as one of the best places to live, work and play in the United States.
Bridal Veil Falls: Bridal Veil Falls is a 600-foot-tall waterfall nestled in the southern end of Provo Canyon. Easily reached by car or by trail on a bike or by foot. The best way to see Bridal Veil Falls is going to Bridal Veil Falls State Park. This spacious recreational area sits about 3.5 miles away from the entrance to Provo Canyon and has picnic tables, a paved pathway, and barbecue grills. There is a scenic walkway that passes in front of the waterfall. Great for kids and adults.
Museum of Peoples and Cultures: he Museum of Peoples and Cultures at Brigham Young University houses anthropological, archaeological and ethnographic artifacts from past and present times. Located on BYU campus, the goal of the museum is to inspire BYU students and the public toward an understanding of and appreciation for people from around the world.
Brigham Young University Museum of Art: This is one of my favorite. I used to go here at least once a month when I lived in Provo because the exhibits were constantly rotating. It’s home to ten exhibition galleries, classrooms, an auditorium, a gift shop, and a theater.
Monte L. Bean Life Science Museum. My husband has been going here since he was a kid and it is my daughters favorite museum in Provo. the museum contains a vast collection of plants and taxidermied animals. Each exhibit aims to educate the public about the bodies and behaviors of animals as well as ways for people to protect the environment. They also have live programs.
Hike the Y. An easy albeit steep trail runs from the east side of Provo up to the block Y on the mountain. It is a very popular hike for college students and families. From the Y you get great views of the Provo area and Utah Lake. I love this hike and have done it numerous times. Last time my husband went out of town though I tried to do it by myself with the two kids by myself and my daughter would have none of it. We didn’t even make it out of sight of the parking lot. At least it was a pretty day and we grabbed ice cream after at Mora Iced Creamery
Okay this one is not technically in Provo but excuse the liberty I am taking by suggesting you go see Roots of Knowledge is a permanent stained glass display completed in 2016 at Utah Valley University in Orem, Utah, United States. The creation of the exhibit was designed and overseen by stained glass artists Tom Holdman and Cameron Oscarson. It took over 12 years and cost US$4.5 million to complete. Honestly if you are anywhere NEAR you Utah you should come see this. I have gone over a dozen times by myself, with people from out of town and with my family. I will continue to go every chance I get. Each time you see something different and miraculous.
Well there you have it. Thank you for watching our adventure. Now go out there, make your own and tell me all about it. Until next time. Keep traveling.

Day 1 - #hermitagepoint
The hike to Hermitage Point is a wonderful start to your Grand Tetons experience! The hike itself is pretty long - just under 10 miles - but it is along the lake for pretty much the entire time, so there is not much in terms of elevation change. It feels like an easy walk, only the walk has some of the best views this planet has to offer! And Hermitage Point itself is...WOW! The point sticks out into Jackson Lake in a way that gives an absolutely wonderful panorama view of the Teton Mountain range.
Day 2 - #grandviewpoint to #twooceanlake and #emmamatildalake
This hike is a bit more challenging, but also more rewarding than the hike to Hermitage Point. The hike we describe is not one single named trail in Grand Tetons, but is the combination of parts of 3 separate trails. However, when you combine the trails as we did, the reward is 3 separate STUNNING sites all achieved by hiking less than 10 miles! If you did all 3 trails separately, you could do 20 miles EASILY! Our way is much better, in our opinion...
Day 3 - #signalmountain
The Signal Mountain hike is basically a 'must' for anyone visiting Grand Teton National Park. The hike offers an absolutely beautiful panorama view at the apex, but along the way is so much wildlife activity on a beautiful forest trail. The hike is moderately challenging, but is more than worth it at the top. Note that you can drive to the top of Signal Mountain if you'd like, however the hike is MUCH more rewarding if you are asking us...
Day 4 - #jennylake Loop
Jenny Lake is a stunning lake that is basically shaped like an ablong circle, making it perfect for a walk around the lake. The hike itself is over 7 miles, however there is not much in terms of elevation gain - after all, you are just taking a lap around the lake! On the opposite side of the lake, you'll be able to see Hidden Falls and Inspiration Point, two incredible sites that are 'musts' on your visit to the Grand Tetons!
Day 5 - #stringlake Loop & #taggartlake Loop with a #bradleylake Detour!
This day was our ABSOLUTE FAVORITE day hiking in Grand Teton National Park (and maybe ever!). The day started out with String Lake, which has a perfectly reflective stillness that DOUBLED the view of the mountains. After that, we went to explore Taggart Lake and Bradley Lake, each absolutely STUNNING in their own right. The 3 lakes we hiked to on Day 5 will always stick out as a special day for us, and one of the most beautiful days we've ever experienced while hiking National Parks.
Day 6 - Bradley Lake and #garnetcanyon
Garnet Canyon is a wonderful hike, and is often used by hikers that are doing multiple days in the Tetons backcountry. The Garnet Canyon hike itself is wonderfully gorgeous, and offers a great view of the same Bradley Lake we hiked to the previous day!
Day 7 - #deathcanyon to Patrol Cabin
The Patrol Cabin is SUPER cool, and very interesting to think about when it was in use. A person was living in this cabin, patrolling the surrounding area, with essentially no contact with the outside world for DAYS at a time. What a TRIPPY experience that is for us to think about in present day!

Louisiana Swamps (USA) Vacation Travel Video Guide
Travel video about destination Lousiana Swamps in The USA.
In the southern region of Louisiana there is a fascinating and mysterious swampland that was once the sole domain of courageous hunters and trappers. Following the construction of several large dams and water barriers that were designed to defend against catastrophic floods in the extensive delta region, a large network of smaller canals, or 'bayous', was created. Today the Louisiana swamps provide a unique habitat for both indigenous and migratory wildlife and a natural refuge far away from civilisation. Some time ago it was the mink that attracted great hordes of trappers to this region that also served as a hiding place for various bandits and pirates. The desolation of the swamps was well appreciated by those who attempted to escape from the law and they certainly possess an eerie atmosphere. However, the colourful stories of n'er do well's and legendary figures such as Bigfoot have added to the enigmatic character of this intriguing area. Thus from year to year the fascination in the Louisiana swamps continues to captivate an increasing number of visitors.

Travel Utah - Visiting the Salt Lake Temple in Salt Lake City
Take a tour of Salt Lake Temple in Salt Lake City, United States -- part of the World's Greatest Attractions travel video series by GeoBeats.
The world's largest monument to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, known as the Salt Lake Temple, has its home in Salt Lake City, Utah.
The tallest point of the structure is a towering two hundred and ten feet, and as such it is the largest Mormon Temple in the world.
In 1847, Brigham Young, one of the Church's first prophets and presidents, chose the site for this immense church. Construction of the exterior ended in 1892 when the capstone containing the figure of the Angel Moroni was finally put into place.
The golden statue commemorates this angel who is said to have been the keeper of the golden plates, the inspiration for the Book of Mormon.
Mormon symbolism and beliefs are well represented in the Temple's gorgeous architecture.
