Best “Watch me Whip:” Dole Whips at Lagoon

Once upon a time, you had to stand in line at the Tiki Room at a Disney Park to get a Dole Whip—a sweet pineapple-based frozen treat. Now, you need only go to Farmington, where Dole Whips are available at a concession stand at Lagoon. We recommend the Dole Whip Float—the tropical cocktail umbrella is mandatory, of course. 375 N.

Best Fish Nibble: SeaQuest  

Seaquest is not just an interactive aquarium where guests can touch and experience sea life up close. They also offer a fish spa.

Beware, the tickle threat-level of this experience is quite high. 1201 N. Hill Field Rd., Layton, 801-544-4938, utah.visitseaquest.com
