Strange Factor: This isn’t HBO’s Big Love—this is the real thing. Step into the private world of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints with a Polygamy Tour given by former FLDS members. Hear stories of growing up in the area while seeing neighboring polygamist colonies. Although you don’t go into compounds, you do visit area cemeteries and farms.

Highlights: Tours start at the Merry Wives Café, which is run by polygamist group members.
