We head to Red Butte Gardens every year. It never gets old. Walking around the gardens is so relaxing, who doesn't like flowers. There's so much more, the kids area is so much fun for the little ones and big ones alike. There are plenty of places to sit and relax, meditate or just have a picnic. You won't be... More

The gardens are beautiful, but be sure to come for a summer concert! You can view the gardens with your show ticket. Great acts in a wonderful setting. You can bring your own picnic with wine or beer and relax.

Every time my mom comes into town I always take a walk with her at Red Butte. Couldn't think of a better place to spend some quality time with her and get some light exercise. She loves it!

Off season is spectacular here. Even without flowers and buzzing bees, RBG is serene and quiet.The gift shop is a wonderful place to birthday shop too! And if you can, be sure to catch one of their shows during the summer months--a bucket list must.

One of America's last watersheds is a spectacular way to spend an afternoon or an evening at a summer conference. Check out the events available year round at this treasure.

A lovely place both for concerts in the summer and flowers and plants during the rest of the year. It is fun to walk around and see the sites.
