Thanksgiving Point Reviews
With several museums, a farm, a garden space, golf, a movie theater, and restaurants there is something for everyone. Do get an explorer pass and make a day of it. more »
We took our 3 1/2 year old Grandson. Here's what he told the front counter as we left, after about 6 hours: [He rose his hands high above his head] "THANK YOU! I HAD SO MUCH FUN! He loved finding the ... more »
Thanksgiving Point is an amazing family friendly place. Everything from special events to regular attendance. They have Ashton Gardens, a 50+ acre man made garden that is absolutely stunning. Each part of the garden has a specific theme, ex: Italian, herb, rose. In the Spring time, April to May, they have the tulip festival where tens of thousands of tulips are in bloom. And in December they have their Luminaria light extravaganza. They also have a very modest and yet encapsulating Dinosaur Museum, not the most grand on in Utah but it is solid. They do show some, I believe 3D, more educational films you can get tickets to as well. These are just two of the major attractions at Thanksgiving Point. They have several other permanent attractions and several seasonal ones. I recommend attending all of them!!! Getting a membership is worth every penny and is easily paid off in a couple of visits.
I LOVE THIS PLACE. I take my family here all the time. We have the membership too so we can get in to all the places for free. A lot of the time when we go, we go to every place they have. The farm, the natural history museum, the curiosity museum and the gardens. My personal favorite is the gardens. They are absolutely incredible. The staff is amazing. I really recommend You go here with your family because you will enjoy it.
