Things to do in SANDY with kids

Utah is a natural playground! It’s a state where you can see the really cool results of what water, wind and time can do to a landscape!

It’s a state where kids will be exposed to some of the most breathtaking national parks in the country - from the unusual Bryce Canyon, Zion National Park, the fun Arches National Park and Canyonlands.

Utah also has awesome dinosaur attractions! From the Dinosaur Discovery Site and Eccles Dinosaur Park, kids will be in awe of some pretty incredible fossils.  Boredom will certainly be extinct…! 

Attractions such as High County Rafting are just waiting to take the family out onto the water, and history is back to life with Wheeler Historic Farm, Benson Grist Mill and the Natural History Museum of Utah.

It’s also the greatest snow on earth! That’s right - from deserts to snow! Northern Utah is a snow lovers haven, with resorts galore, including Deer Valley Resort, Nordic Valley and Gorgoza Park which is great for lessons for kids! 

Packed full of kids fun, Utah is a place where kids can create wonderful memories and enjoy new experiences. It’s a playful state, and an incredibly impressive one at that!
