Thanksgiving Point Gardens
The ten acres of gardens here are sure to inspire both serious and novice gardeners with new ideas. A vegetable garden, herb garden, rose garden and water garden are among the areas where visitors can browse and learn. Free classes are offered each week during the spring and summer on square foot gardening and grow-box gardening. The garden shop is well stocked with plants, flowers and garden decor and well staffed with knowledgeable, helpful clerks. The season runs from March to October.
We wanted our kids to enjoy nice Easter activities so we took them to TP Easter Extravaganza and it was a huge ripoff.
-Extremely long lines.
-Easter egg hunt just about killed a bunch of kids that got trampled in the mayhem. My kid came back crying twice because all the bigger kids outran him and got all the eggs, elbowed him out of the way and knocked his eggs out of his basket and took them.
-Not near enough staff to keep the excessive crowds organized.
-Poor quality activities for the kids and most had lines so long it wasn't worth waiting.
-I assumed we would have access to the rest of the park (Tulip Festival) but not a chance without paying extra again.
-Parking was crazy and there was no people to manage traffic and construction made things more difficult.
-Chic-Fil-A sponsored some of it but all food coupons in the eggs and elsewhere were for the American Fork store only and we are from Ogden. Dumb move. Not only we we angry with TP but now with their sponsor too for being so short-sighted.
-Poor quality food venders and long wait times anyway. It took 40 minutes for me to get some cotton candy for my kids.
-I'm sure they made loads of money but should be ashamed of their exploitation of the kids and their families.
-I'll not return to Thanksgiving point again and advise you not to either.
Last year, my friends and I made a plan for an outdoor trip during Thanksgiving vacation. I didn’t have a clue as to where could we go, so my friend suggested a vacation point.
We travelled toward Lehi, Utah in the car. We went to Lehi Roller, which is impressive and produces around 100,000 pounds of flour each day. Then we went to the “Thanksgiving point” which mainly consisted of four main attractions:
- Thanksgiving point gardens
- Golf course
- Ancient life museum
- Farm country
We enjoyed our lunch as well dinner at the Thanksgiving Point Harvest Restaurant.
Now we were in Virginia and have planned to enjoy “Thanksgiving” 2010 in Luray. The valley holds a huge national park, Luray caverns and many more adventurous attractions. I booked a room in “Woodruff Inns” since they’re offering decent discounts. We were hoping for a good time at this place and we weren’t disappointed.
The Gardens at Thanksgiving Point are truly an oasis of beauty and serenity. While strolling through the beautifully themed gardens one feels a sense of awe you as you see and smell the tens of thousands of flowers all in the fore ground of the beautiful Wasatch Mountains. My favorite garden was the secret garden, modeled after the garden in the book The Secret Garden, it is nearly hidden but that�s what makes it so special. At first I thought the price was a little steep ($8), but I soon discovered it was well worth it.
