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!

    I love the tulip festival, too! We’ve been twice already and hope to go at least once more. Thanksgiving Point announced today that they’re even extending the festival for one more week (until May 4)! Yay!

  2. Thanks for your comment, Anna! When we went, so many flowers had yet to bloom and it was still pretty cold. The weather has warmed up so much, so it’s perfect they extend the festival by a week.

    If you go, enjoy! We absolutely loved it, even in the cold. 🙂
