With spring coming up, you might be wondering what you can do in the warmer weather and over spring break in April. Here are a few ideas.
This list contains things you can do alone or with friends and family. Unfortunately, spring break this year is only about a week long, from April 2-8, so you might not be able to do all of the activities, but this is definitely a few ideas you can think about!
For a fun day out, here are some places you can go.
Classic Fun Center, which has roller skating and laser tag Monday-Friday from 10am-9pm, Saturday 12pm-12am, and closed sunday. This is a great option if you’re looking for semi-inexpensive activities that you can do with many people.

The Gateway in Salt Lake is great for a fun movie day or go to the Planetarium which is open 10am-7pm, and is still quite inexpensive. The Planetarium for 3-4 hours is $6 per person, and pricing goes up to $12 for six or more hours.
Visiting an aquarium is a good option for both large and small groups of friends. If you want to visit the aquarium, SeaQuest Utah is in the Layton Hills Mall. Prices are a bit higher, starting at $16.99 for anyone 12+, but it is worth it for interactive exhibits with different kinds of animals and fish.
