- The Place Heritage Park – It’s Baby Animal Season
Who doesn’t love seeing and being able to touch or hold a baby animal! Not only is this an excellent opportunity to see them, but it can also be a learning experience for everyone as you learn about animals such as a lamb, chicken, and goats. The more time we spend learning about the animals, the better we can understand them and show empathy and compassion towards them. It’s not every day we get the privilege of spending time with animals that isn’t a dog or cat.
If you love the snow and skiing, don’t miss out, go out to the resort for a last snow ride down the slope on your skis or snowboard. Park City has the largest skiing resort where you can ski, dine, and enjoy a good family, fun mini vacation.
Spring and summer is the time for festivals and concerts both indoor and outdoor. Take advantage of artists who come by your city to see them such as Pink, Switchfoot, or Shawn Mendes. You can even attend concerts in your community which Salt Lake is good at hosting spring events to enjoy good music, dancing, and food.
