1) Go Karting at Miller MotorSports Park, Tooele
No wimpy little track here — this is where the big boys race! Sweeten the pot with a bet beforehand...loser buys dinner.
2) Sailing lessons, Utah Lake State Park
Take the “Discover Sailing” course at Bonneville School of Sailing, where you’ll get two hours of instruction on Utah Lake. Learn to tack and jib, and also learn if your partner gets seasick!
3) Bobsled at the Utah Olympic Park, Park City
Grab your girl and climb aboard a bobsled for a real adrenaline rush! The Olympic Park has lots to offer for a day out: watch Olympians train in the freestyle pool (or try it yourself!), climb the rock wall, go summer tubing and more.
4) Stand-Up Comedy at Wiseguys, Ogden and West Valley City
Affordable comedy club fun! The club in Ogden is for all ages; the club in West Valley serves alcohol and is 21 years and older. Both serve plenty of tasty food and offer some of the greatest comedians you’ll see in the state.
5) Desert Star Theater, Murray
See if your partner has a sense of humor BEFORE you commit. The theater presents a new show every few months. You can get snacks and non-alcoholic drinks to enjoy during the show, too.
6) Surfing, Ogden
Just because we live in Utah doesn’t mean you can’t take your darling surfing! Flowrider in Ogden is almost like surfing...at the very least, you can practice before that Maui trip.

Soar over the trees on the zipline! Adventure Zipline Utah also offers paddleboard excursions and guided off-road adventures.
10) Ghost Tour, Salt Lake City
Whether you believe in ghosts or not, a ghost tour through one of Salt Lake City’s “haunted” buildings will definitely bring you closer (I don’t even believe in ghosts, but I’d but snuggled up to my partner while walking through a dark, deserted building!). Grimm Ghost Tours operates in Salt Lake City.
