Spring Flowers: Thanksgiving Point Tulip Festival
What is your favorite way to celebrate Earth Month? I can't think of a better activity than seeing spring flowers bloom. So, my family was thrilled when Thanksgiving Point offered us tickets to this year's Tulip Festival.
Seeing Spring Flowers: The Perfect Family Outdoors Activity
If you live in or near Utah, visiting between April 12-27 this year (or a similar time frame in other years) will land you smack dab in the middle of the Thanksgiving Point Tulip Festival. Open Monday through Saturday and costing between $8 to $12 per person, the Thanksgiving Point Gardens are a great place for the whole family to explore nature together.
For those who know me, you have heard me talk about Thanksgiving Point. It is my happy place. Located 10 minutes from my house, I have been taking my boys there since they were toddlers. We enjoy the flowers and activities in all seasons. And the boys especially love rolling down the hills located throughout the Garden's 55 acres.
Last weekend, we enjoyed seeing the spring flowers during the Tulip Festival's Dutch Days. Vendors served traditional Dutch goodies and were selling all different types of products from toys, handbags, and food to jewelry and candles. Besides the sweet treats, my boys were most interested in the photo opps!
Whether you want to brave the crowds and check out the spring flowers on a Saturday or enjoy a little more quiet time and go on a weekday, make sure to take advantage of the more than 250,000 bulbs planted from Holland and other varieties coloring the landscape at the Thanksgiving Point Gardens.
What are your favorite spring flowers?
