Gym
“The South Davis Recreation Center is nearby. It is inexpensive and offers a full array of activities for all ages. Babysitting is available for small children. Basketball, swimming, yoga, pilates, ice skating, a full gym, indoor jogging path, and water slides with a children's play area are some of the amenities. Our favorite day to go with the kids is on Wednesday when they inflate a huge obstacle course that stretches across the pool.”

“Nielsen's is a must-do in Bountiful. They make their frozen custard in-house and is well known locally. Our favorites are their pumpkin flavored custard in the fall and anything chocolate. You can buy cartons to take home or stay inside. Their fries and burgers are also very good.”

Point of Interest
“Located one mile away. They have a snack bar in the summers with good food. The golf course itself is fantastic with reasonable fees. The carts are fast and respond well to enthusiastic non-golfers who are just coming along for the ride. Watch out for deer and turkeys! A birdie takes on an entirely new meaning at this course.”
