This summer we did things a little…different. Typically we use the summer months as the opportunity to take family vacations; to fly away for a week at a time, spend a ton of money creating memories in far away places. And while we love to travel and show our kids the world, this summer we cancelled several exotic vacations and work trips, and instead focused on creating memories here at HOME, by finding family-friendly things to do in Utah Valley.
It was our best summer EVER.
Our goal was to explore close to home, and to try as many new things as possible within an hour or two of our front door. One notable weekend we took just 1.5 days, Friday and Saturday, and used Explore Utah Valley to make a family-friendly Utah Valley itinerary to hit up as many local sites, spots, and activities as possible in that short amount of time. The best part? Some were completely FREE! We had such a great experience and enjoyed everything we did so much, I thought I'd share what we did, where we went, and our experience with it all so you can try out these activities for yourself!
