Utah sparkles in winter, but it is also stunning in spring. Spring is a favorite time of year for Utahns and state visitors who come in droves to enjoy the melting snow and the verdant landscape.
Utah offers the following highlights in spring:
- Easter events – During Easter, the Cathedral of the Madeleine in Salt Lake City features many choir performances and other Easter activities. Temple Square in Salt Lake, owned by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, offers tours and Easter concerts. For the kids, there are plenty of Easter egg hunts at a variety of cities.
- Wildlife – Spring is the symbol of new life. Baby animal events are held across the state during spring. Families can take their children to witness the miracle of the beginning of life.
- Races – Spring is the perfect time for outdoor activities. Races and walks are held in different communities. From 5K run/walks to full marathon, races are in full swing most every weekend.
- Tulip Festival – The Tulip Festival is held from April 18 to May 3, except Sundays, at Thanksgiving Point. The 55-acre garden features a colorful display of over a hundred types of flowers.
- National parks – As the mountain snow melts, spring is the perfect time to explore the different national parks in the state. There are several hiking trails that allow people to access the majestic views of mountains, forests, rivers, lakes, and more.
- Sports – In spring, you can see the Real Salt Lake play professional soccer, and the Bees play minor league baseball. The Bees hope to make another playoff run this season while the RSL is looking to recover from last season’s disappointment. Come cheer them on.
The real challenge may not be finding enough to do in Utah in spring, but finding enough time to do it all.
