There are fantastic hiking opportunities, plus numerous wildlife and horticultural destinations, or you can learn more about science and space at the Clark Planetarium.
Diverse Dining – Travelers after a whimsical approach to French and American cuisine will enjoy browsing the menu at Franck’s Restaurant, whilst the vibrant surroundings of Spitz are where you’ll find assorted Turkish street food, washed down with beer and cocktails. The snug Rawtopia Living Cuisine and Beyond café prepares raw, organic, and vegetarian options, and if you’re after an elegant environment and refined Italian fare then check out Tuscany Restaurant.
Trails and Mountains – There are plenty of hiking trails and picturesque mountains to explore close to the day use rooms, with Heughes Canyon Trail being one of the nearest. Until the very top it’s not arduous and is suitable for families. If you’ve the time to spend, and the legs, Mount Olympus is a year-round hiking destination, with Gobblers Knob and Box Elder Peak a little further off.
Clark Planetarium – If you prefer the heavens to earthly delights then head on over to the Clark Planetarium, a state of the art venue that explores the boundaries of human knowledge about outer space. Exhibits cover the subjects of space and science, which are further illuminated by 3D IMAX films and laser shows.
Natural Delights – North of the hotel is Hogle Zoo, a modern 42 acre site that includes tropical gardens as well as a plethora of animals. Visitors may have the chance to feed the gigantic giraffes, while the mighty polar bears are best seen in a more hands-off way. A short way west of Hogle Zoo is the Tracy Aviary & Botanical Gardens, where you can peruse the gardens and feed the birds.
