Segway of Utah

Segway of Utah offers TWO great tours! Our one-hour CITY TOUR Tour takes you through a small section of Spanish Fork City then connects with the Spanish Fork River Trail where we spend most of the tour on the shady and paved trail that runs beside the river and throughout the city. Listen with the attached radios as our marvelous Tour Guide gives you some interesting facts and little known knowledge about local history and the Segway PT. Our two-hour COUNTRY TOUR takes you down Main Street a few blocks until we merge with the new trail that ends up at Canyon View Park. Its 4.5 miles each way of secluded beautiful riding. Once we arrive at the park, we take a brief restroom and water break then head on back to Segway of Utah. If you want to bring a snack and eat it on the break, each Segway PT has a front bag big enough to hold an average size brown lunch sack. If everyone in the tour belongs to the same group and you want to add in a picnic-at-the-park, we’ll stay up to 30 minutes.

My wife and I have always wanted to ride a Segway, what a great opportunity to ride one with Segway of Utah. The trip started with some safety guidelines, they want to make sure you know how to ride. Stephanie was an awesome instructor. The...MoreThank you for the great feedback! We think Stephanie is a wonderful Tour Guide too and we're so glad you enjoyed your tour in our city.

Springville Museum of Art

One of the finest displays of Utah art.

Reviewed By SueSuitecase - Salt Lake City, Utah

Lots of beauty in the building itself, has a cool little eating area with one of those perpetual motion looking machines with balls rolling through it. Several permanent pieces, sculptures and a variety of temporary exhibits. They also hold classes and events. A lovely place!

Sri Sri Radha Krishna Temple

South of Spanish Fork, Utah, in a semi rural environment, we have 15 acres (5.85 Hectares) upon which sit a gorgeous temple, a 6,000 sq foot residential facility with comfortable double rooms, two outdoor stages, a large covered pavilion, and amenities for parrots, peacocks, llamas and 3 small cows. There is a 200,000 gallon lake with waterfall from which we gravity feed one acre under cultivation. The acreage produces chemical free tomatoes, eggplants, varieties of chilis, squash, melons, corn, cabbage, broccoli, zucchini, cucumbers, spinach, radishes, green peppers, potatoes and flowers for worship. We sponsor lots of festivals and twice or thrice yearly yoga retreats. Other annual events are the Llama Fest in July, Krishna Janmastami in August, Festival of India in September, & Diwali, Festival of Lights in October. We teach yoga five days a week and have classes on the Bhagavad Gita 6am and 6pm as well as daily kirtans. These programs are optional for the guests, though the more they attend, the more they will be informed about the 5,000 year old spiritual culture and practices of "Bhakti Yoga". There are a gift store on the property and salad bar with hot buffet open (12 pm - 5 pm) 7 days a week. We do a lot of cooking for those interested to learn. Local sights are Sundance Resort, Bridal Veil Falls, the Alpine Loop, hiking trails in Hobble Creek, Diamond Fork Hot Springs, Provo Canyon etc. Llamas are available for some treks in summer. We are the number one llama rental facility in Utah with 35 animals on the property.

We visited the Krishna Temple outside of Spanish Fork, Utah primarily to take photos and learn what goes on there. We arrived mid afternoon; several what appeared to be staff/employee vehicles parked behind the temple and a large motor-home plugged into the temple outlets. No people in sight. Frankly, the area immediately around the temple was dirty and uninviting. Six peacocks were roosting on the patio tables and bird poop all over. The windows into the lower level were so dirty that you could hardly see in. My wife was so turned-off that she wanted to leave. I took a few photos of the temple and drove out.

Two seniors, two adults, two children under five. Everyone loved it. Corn maze was difficult but not scary. Great view of the mountains. Came home with corn, pumpkin and one kernel in our two year old's nostril. How can you beat that? Such a good price at $2 compared to places in my town for $12

Brigham Young University

Reviewed By MickeysBestPal

We had a family gathering here and among our group was my mother who has difficulty walking. She has a handicap parking permit. We came on a Saturday afternoon and we could not find a single handicap parking spot that was available anywhere. All the visitor parking lots were full. I dropped my mother off as close to the campus as we could get and then I parked far away and hiked back.
BYU is enormous. It is a beautiful campus in a great location – surrounded by mountains. But they need more handicap accessible parking options.

Guided tour of various theme rooms is mandatory. It is an old school building, but has woodcarving and train displays during the year, in addition to pioneer and tack rooms. Many items are on loan from private citizens, and are top quality. Some of the oldes thuman artifacts in the world are on display. Pioneer crafts are also for sale.

Spanish Fork River Park

Reviewed By Tage H

Went on a drive up the Canyon and found this gem. Playground for our 2yr old which she loved. It was updated and in the shade (very important for little ones). New mulch in the play area. Very clean campsites and all were very close to the river. Perfect for a day trip away from the city or for a weekend with family. Some campsites could fit a couple vehicles or a long camper. Good fire pits and charcoal grills at each site.

Provo City Center Temple

Reviewed By greenlibrarian1951 - Frederick, Maryland

Considering that this was a pioneer tabernacle that burned down and was reconstructed as a L.D.S. Temple, it is an amazing building. The grounds, though young, are nice. But the beauty is in the building. The effort made to correctly match the previous interior and to be faithful to the pioneer heritage is fantastic. However, to truly see the interior you have to be a member of the L.D.S. faith and have a Temple Recommend. That should not stop you from viewing the exterior of the building and all it represents.

Legends Vintage Motorcycles

Reviewed By liberdive - Springville, Utah

The atmosphere in this new building makes it desirable for a meeting spot. The staff is friendly. Owners are motorcyclist enthusiasts who have added a mini museum as part of the ambience. Tables and counter are often full.
I've had special, soup, salad, and burgers. All were just average. Waiters were fast with drinks, cheerful, but service was slow. visit if you are in the mood for a different atmosphere and aren't looking for high quality on the menu. It is near freeway exit so easy to find.

Monte L. Bean Life Science Museum

Reviewed By Jolynn F - Provo, Utah

A great little museum. A whole bunch of taxidermed animals, many in very good habitats. Really good for kids. Like going to the zoo, but all indoors. Big enough for a wide variety, but not so big that anyone will get too tired. Good flow, but layout also makes it easy to go back to things if you want.
