Sin 'n Surf Internet Cafe: Eat while you surf
Most internet cafes charge a nominal fee for access to the net while others offer the service free with a food and drink purchase. However they work, the notion of drawing people away from in front of their computer screens at home and into a place of business to munch on a corned beef sandwich or down a cappuccino - all the while seated in front of yet another computer screen - has caught on big. The "Sip 'n Surf Cafe" in Pleasant Grove has really yummi coffee and since the closest Starbuck's Cafe is probably all the way in Salt Lake City or thereabouts!! then, I recommend this place for all of your out of the norm java cravings!
Favorite Dish: Coffee: The Young and the Restless
Sandwiches: I say go for the "HTML" (ham, turkey, mayo, lettuce and tomato) But they also have the (I think very original) other sandwiches:
Area 51, Revenge of the Nerds, Mega-Byte, Techy Turkey, Micro-soft and juicy...... and get this: the "Al Gore (after all he did invent the Internet) Sandwich"!!!!! :o)
The Purple Turtle: Best "Fish and Chips" in town!!!!
If you try out Purple Turtle, you'll find a restaurant that specializes in an American cuisine especially known for burgers, chicken and fish. I'd recommend that before going to McDonalds or Arctic Circle, you must give Purple Turtle a try. It's a Pleasant Grove institution! it's Pleasant Grove's landmark! Great shakes, great burgers ...and don't forget to order Gems (better than french fries!)
Favorite Dish: The Fish and Chips!!!!! might not be to U.K.'s standards but this are the beeeesssst in town!!! made from fresh halibut.... mmmmm mm!
If your current health insurance doesn't cover you while your abroad, you should consider getting international travel insurance just in case something should go wrong.
Pleasant Grove Off The Beaten Path
Rodeo (at Strawberry Days)
The Strawberry Days Rodeo in Pleasant Grove is one of the best rodeos because it opens the summer rodeo season in a beautiful open-air arena, which welcomes you to enjoy the rodeo. Each year the rodeo features great bucking stock and top-notch cowboys from the PRCA. Many of the NFR qualifiers begin their season at Strawberry Days. Strawberry Days is easy to get to from off of I-15 from the American Fork or Pleasant Grove exits and it is only about 30 minutes from Salt Lake City. And true to their name- they have the best Strawberries & Cream and sell it out of the concession stands.
Please visit my travelogue on this amazing rodeo for more pictures.
The city of Pleasant Grove hosts the annual 'Strawberry Days' festival, usually held during the third week of June. The rodeo held in conjunction with this festival brings competitors and spectators from throughout the west. The festival includes parades, a carnival, pageants, and other activities. Although no strawberries are currently grown in the city, the festival takes its name from a time when strawberries were a major economic activity in the city.
The first Strawberry Day celebration was held the second week of June, 1921. It was organized by the Wasatch Club, the forerunner of the Chamber of Commerce.
Please feel free to visit my travelogue on this fantastic festival!

Pleasant Grove Favorites
At the foothills of Pleasant...
Favorite thing: At the foothills of Pleasant Grove is the a mountain which has a big white G painted on it. You can hike up to the top of it to get some nice views of the valley from about 1000 feet higher. The G stands for Pleasant Grove as the 'Y' on a hill near Brigham Young University stands for that College. And there are other letters all around Utah.
