9. Take half a day and go to Boondocks Family Fun Center in Draper. Clean, fun, good food. Arcades, go-carts, goofy golf, bumper boats. We prefer to drive a bit further to Boondocks in Kaysville. They have great bowling lanes there. Draper is 45 minutes from here. Kaysville is 50 minutes from here. 3 to 4-hour activity.
