What are some interesting/fun things to do in the area? Can you recommend any “hidden gems"?

At first glance, there's not much to do here. But there are a lot of restaurants, mountain activities (hiking, rockclimbing), opera house and ballet (for cheap). There are random activities going on all the time- butterfly exhibit, special performances, art exhibits, etc. - Jan 16, 2015
There are many outdoor options especially if you have a car. We enjoy doing CBT stays. There is lots of hiking, climbing, and horseback riding. We weren't able to go much but regional travel is amazing. Go to Uzbekistan if you can. - May 13, 2014
