Are you planning a stay-cation for Spring Break, but need ideas for where to go and what to do?  Well here is a list of places you can visit in Utah's Summit and Wasatch Counties (Park City and Heber City Areas).  Each of these things is open in the spring and costs less than $10 per person.  In fact, many of these places are free.

Olympic Park

Back in 2002 Salt Lake City hosted the winter Olympics and everyone loved it. If you want to indulge in some Olympic nostalgia then head to Olympic Park. This museum is free and has a great collection of Olympic memorabilia such as costumes worn during the opening ceremony and a display of the Gold, Silver, and Bronze medals. You will have tons of Olympic memories come flooding back to you when you step into this museum. You are welcome to walk around the trails leading to other buildings and event venues.

You can also pay $10 for a guided tour of the venues such as the bobsled track. And if you are really adventurous you can pay to participate in some of the sports. There are also various ropes courses available for you to play on. Prices range from $15 to $20 and are available for adventurers are young as 5 years old.
