Every spring as the weather gets warmer, the Ashton Gardens in the town of Lehi start to host the annual Tulip Festival. About 280,000 tulips in hundreds of varieties, all imported directly from Holland, fill 15 themed gardens. Different flower displays are surely amazing, and you can end up taking tons of great pictures and share them on your social media account. Special events during the tulip bloom include the Swing Dance, Lyceum Philharmonic concert, Tulip Festival races, and more.
Thanksgiving Point has a great location between Salt Lake and Utah Counties which makes it a perfect weekend spot. Ashton Gardens, called an oasis in the desert, occupy 55 acres of gardens, lawns, and feature the largest human made waterfall in the Western Hemisphere. The 15 themed areas include the Italian Gardens, the I Am The Light Of The World sculpture garden, Vista Garden, Koi View Pier, and the Secret Garden.
