Things to do in Utah | Thanksgiving Point Gardens


This year we decided to invest in a Thanksgiving Point yearly pass. We live awfully close now and I needed something to keep Ellie and I entertained this summer (and winter!) I love Thanksgiving Point because they offer both indoor and outdoor activities for all ages. A few weeks ago, we went to the gardens. My first time visiting I was nine months pregnant and desperately hoping that all the walking would put me in labor. It most certainly did not, but I did get a good work out in. ;) I have loved the gardens ever since. Talk about acres and acres of the most beautiful landscape! Spending a few hours there is easy. We made it just in time to see the last of the tulips and they were gorgeous! Ellie’s favorite part was the waterfall…oh and rolling down the giant hill with me. ;)
