Summer is here! Holla! We've rounded up some of our favorite places and would love to see your summer adventures. Tag #thesaltproject so we can follow along.
Antelope Island | Layton, Utah
Ogden River Walk | Ogden, UtahOne of our favorite, shady places is the Ogden River Walk that runs along the Weber river. You can bike, roller blade or walk down the paths. If you start out by Weber Canyon you can try some of the delicious Mormon Muffins, or check out Slackwater Pizza on the other end. Lorin Swimming pool (where the famous Sandlot movie was filmed) and skate park are located in the middle of the paths. You can fish or just wade through the river. Plus, Fort Buenaventura is one of the stops and they host a yearly Mountain Man Rendezvous!
Gilgal Sculpture Garden | Salt Lake City, UtahTucked in the heart of Salt Lake is a slightly odd sculpture garden. If you have a few minutes be sure to stop by or even take a picnic.
Home Depot Workshops for Kids | Your Local Home DepotFree craft, free apron, free pin, free fun! The kids love these! Held once a month, you'll want to check out the craft and sign up your kids!
Crystal Hot Springs | Honeyville, UtahHot or cold weather, rain or shine, the Crystal Hot Springs is a favorite place. Bring your swimsuit and be prepared to go down the water slides. They also have camping spots too.
Nicholls Castle Park | Kaysville, UtahThis park is just off Highway 89. It's a great park for kids of all ages. We love picnicking and walking along the Bair Nature path just below the park.
Dinosaur Park | Ogden, UtahAlong the Ogden River Walk is the Dinosaur Park! Inside is an awesome museum and outside is an even greater park. Walk among the dinosaur or slide down a prehistoric tree! Dig for dinosaurs and take a picnic.
Museum of Natural Curiosity | Lehi, UtahThis place is crazy cool. Rope Courses, wind tunnels, kidtopia, zip lines, beautiful flowers, mazes, you'll want to spend a whole day here with your kids for sure.
Ogden Nature Center | Ogden, UtahHikes, classes, raptor birds, bear den, this place has it all. Be sure to stop and walk through the bird house displays.
The Food Truck League | Salt Lake City, UtahFood trucks are all a rage and we love em too! The Food Truck has Monday Round-Ups and now Friday Nights in Bountiful. Be sure to follow their social media to see what trucks are coming to the Round-Ups.
Pineview Reservoir | Huntsville, UtahUtah is so awesome. 20 minutes from Ogden is a beautiful Reservoir with sandy beaches and amazing views in the valley. Be sure to check out this free beach we found!
High Adventure Park | Ogden, UtahThis park is not just for kids. It's totally a park for adults too. It's also along the Weber River.
