Stay at Home Spring Break

If money is tight or you just can't get away for Spring Break even though your family would love to, try a stay at home vacation. It is a great money saving idea and a lot of fun!

  • Choose some fun field trips that your family has not done that are free or inexpensive and see our own Wasatch Front. Such as Temple Square' spring flowers, any Temple Square exhibit or movie, the new exhibits at the Church Museum, the scavenger hunt at the Family Hisstory Library, Kenecott Copper Mine, BYU's Carl Bloch Exhibit, BYU's Bean Museum, Hill Airforce Base Museum, Red Butte Gardens or any other fun activity that is available along the Wasatch Front.
  • Another great idea that is relatively inexpensive is the Salt Lake Connects Pass. It can be purchased for 1-3 days for a relatively low price (much cheaper that going out of town and paying for hotels, meals and attractions). It includes 13 Wasatch Front attractions (Hogle Zoo, Discovery Gateway, This is the Place State Park and many more)  for one pass price. Most admissions to these parks and museums are $7-15 so the prices of the pass are great! It also includes a $10 lunch at the Lion House Pantry. For more info. go to visitsaltlake.com/visit/connectpass
If you are going out of state for Spring Break many cities also have some sort of city pass. Just Google the city name and city pass. Such as Dallas city pass. It is a great way to save a little money. That always makes your spring break less stressful and more enjoyable.
