Unique Things To Do in Utah County With Your Toddler

Toddlers are amazing! They are adorably enthusiastic about everything and have an endless supply of energy…until they don’t. One minute they’re running around wanting to show you everything they see. Then all of a sudden, they’re tired and want their stroller. This can make entertaining them a challenge. If you’re looking for a few new go-to locations, here are a few unique things to do with your toddler in Utah County.

Cabela’s Aquarium

If you haven’t been to the aquarium at Cabela’s in Lehi, you and your toddler are in for a treat! It is so large it’s a unique “to do” all on its own. It has a walk-through tunnel that let’s you feel like you’re in with the fish, without the water mess. All of my kids (even the older ones) enjoy watching the huge catfish and trout swimming around with other Utah native fish. In addition to being highly entertaining, the whole thing is stroller-friendly and completely free!

Baby Animal Days at the Thanksgiving Point Farm

Farm Country at Thanksgiving Point is a fantastic place to take toddlers and has variety of things to do. There are tons of animals, interactive activities, trailer rides pulled by horses or tractors, and even pony rides! The farm is open all year round, but the best time to go is during Baby Animal Days. This event typically happens around mid-May. (Check the Thanksgiving Point website for more information.) Kids of all ages not only get to see and learn about the adorable baby animals, but they get to pet them too!

Clint’s Reptile Room

This is another place that appeals to kids of all ages. Here kids can hold and even feed the reptiles, making Clint’s Reptile Room one of the most unique places to take your toddler in Utah County. Clint has YouTube channel, so you can learn more about animals before (or after) you go. His website also has helpful information to make this a great time for you and your toddler!

Shay Park

I know a park doesn’t sound like a “unique” place to go with your toddler, but trust me—Shay Park in Saratoga Springs is different! First off, it’s a train themed park. I don’t know about you, but that is reason enough for my kids to absolutely love it! Most of the playground is designed for younger kids, which definitely helped me feel better about letting my kids play there when they were little. By far, the most fun thing about this park is that two Saturdays out of the month there is a small train for young kids to ride for free!
