Car for only 1 day - what would you see/do on Provo?

Hi all,

If you only had 1 day to explore the island with a car, what would you do? :-)

Cheers,

Jud

No doubt you'll get lots of recommendations from this forum, typical big hits will be Turtle Cove, ChalkSound and rest of the South Shore area, can drive down through Leeward to see a residential area, BigBlue dive shop and the marina (home of TCI Ferry), and beautiful Blue Hills

Taylor Bay and then lunch at La Brisas in Chalk Sound.

Enough room for dinner, then head to Da Conch Shack for dinner. True island fare!

Leave early and travel to Smith's reef for some amazing snorkling, take a ride to Conch Shack for lunch. Take a ride thru Leeward to any public access sign to enjoy a secluded beach and then top it off with a dinner at one of a few wonderful resturants

Chalk Sound would be top of the list. Incredible water color. Las Brisas is a great stop for lunch or dinner in that area. Da Conch Shack in Blue Hills. Entirely different from Grace Bay and a fun experience. The island is small so you can really explore many areas in one day, though not spend a lot of time in any one place. Near to Grace Bay is Pelican Beach if you like shells and some rocky areas. Very beautiful.

I know you asked about one day, but a car provides freedom to explore and go to the many wonderful restaurants no matter where you are staying. We have found the daily rental rate to be very reasonable.

I agree with summersail. I would see the rental agency and ask for more days. Kind of selling yourself short by limiting yourself to a day. If you go out to dinner a few times, the cost of a single taxi ride is a day's rental.
