Karl Lye (left) talks to a group of people participating in a walking tour at the fifth annual SpiderFest at Antelope Island, in Syracuse, on Saturday, August 5, 2017.

Drive the island, ride bikes, hike and just otherwise explore this starkly beautiful state park. Be warned that there’s almost no shade on the island — except at Fielding Garr Ranch — so on hot days it can be on the warm-ish side.

The park is open daily from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. Admission is $10 per vehicle.
