Thanksgiving Point is a wonderful place for family fun in Utah.
Keep reading for details on a Thanksgiving Point annual pass giveaway at the end of this post.

We welcome Spring each year by visiting Thanksgiving Point to view the Tulip Garden. Grandma comes from Brigham City and we take a picnic lunch while we enjoy walking around the gardens. Here are some pictures I took from this past spring.
Our kids love feeding the large fish in the coi pond and smelling the tulips in the fragrance garden. We also love the garden carousel area.


You may wonder why I am mentioning spring time in the middle of winter.  Well, I just had the opportunity to visit Thanksgiving Point last week during a Holiday Preview for local bloggers.  I got to see a whole different side of the venue.  We took a tour through their magnificent Emporium, sampled food from their Harvest restaurant (see the Seussalicious butternut squash soup below), and took a trolley ride to view their holiday light display.

KID FRIENDLY ACTIVITIES AT THANKSGIVING POINT
I can't wait to go back and take the kids through their holiday lights display. You can drive through, staying nice and cozy in your car or take a ride on their heated Trolley bus.   They also have reindeer by the watertower. Santa visits at certain times too.
The Emporium store was beautifully decorated for the holidays with a wonderful kid section featuring whimsical trendy toys, clothes and books.
Farm Country, is great in the spring and warmer months with a petting zoo.
The Museum of Ancient Life featuring Dinosaur exhibits, a fossil dig and Mammoth Screen 3D Theater and Megaplex Movies.
What I'm most excited for is their new Museum of Natural Curiosity coming soon. They are currently raising funds to build the largest Children's museum in Utah. It sounds amazing and I hope to take my children there in the future.


Disclosure: When attending the Holiday preview for bloggers I was given an annual family pass and an extra one to give away to a reader of obSEUSSed. All the opinions in this post are my own.

We'll head to the Dino Museum first. It's a great place to go with the kids when it's cold. I'm looking forward to spring in the Gardens. They do a Walk of Remembrance there each year where we go to reflect on the lives of our children who died in 2001 and 2007. Thanksgiving Point is generous to host this even every year, and I love the peacefulness that is there as we reflect.
