When you think of Thanksgiving you usually think of family and friends coming over for huge Thanksgiving day feast. Lots of turkey and dressing,candied yams, homemade pies. Maybe a big juicy ham if your family is on the slightly larger side. Kids running around playing all types of games.

There are so many activies for your family and friends that i will not try to gety them all in this post. Some of the activities include golfing on a championship caliber course that is 7,728 yard long and covers more than 200 acres.

An amazing 55 acre garden designed to be a peaceful place where the gifts of nature can be appreciated. The gardens created by Utah landscape architect Leonard Grassli are motivated by a series of stunning gardens. The Creek garden, the Monet Garden, the Rose Garden, the Fragrance Garden and the Secret garden Just to name a few of the gardens available for your pleasure.

Thanksgiving Point also has a educational farm That is perfect for entertaining the kids . Entertaiment includes pony rides, wagon rides, petting areas to feed and pet the farm animals, concerts and a dinner theater to wash it all down with.

Other exhibits you can visit include the Museum of Ancient Life that has one of the largest collection of [dinosaur fossils] in the west.

But it should be definatly something to keep in mind when that summer vacation roles around…Read More :)
