Traveling With Children

A good family adventure vacation often begins in Salt Lake City, with a visit to the stunning Natural History Museum of Utah to set the context. From there, set out on a family-oriented itinerary.

Other options include:
  • Lagoon Amusement Park, Seven Peaks Water Parks, Laser Quests and the Heber Creeper, an old-fashioned replica steam locomotive than runs through Provo Canyon

Parks and Outdoors

If you’re into adventurous vacations and your kids like to hike, schedule a tour of Timpanogos Cave National Monument or check out the family hiking guides for each of The Mighty 5® national parks of Southern Utah to discover for some of the coolest rock formations on the planet. Some hikes are short strolls along level trails while others will push you a little further.
