Since we come from out of town, this place is the perfect opportunity for a day trip. Honestly, if you've been to larger city aquariums, you're not going to find this one equally grand. However, it is a lovely aquarium given the location. It has...MoreHello, Thank you for your review and feedback. We're glad you and your family enjoyed the Aquarium and the otters and penguins!

Megaplex Theaters, The District

Reviewed By chevelleskick - Herriman, Utah

We attend weekly. Recently we have experienced bad popcorn and luxury seats that dont heat any longer. Not really a big deal but Megaplex contacted us and we sent them a statement. I didnt thin they would respond and were just collecting data. Wow that evening they apologized and offered tickets and popcorn for the review. We really like going to the show there and will return.

With the ambiance and charm of an early Utah Village, you'll enjoy shopping and dining in a leisurely-paced setting, just 12 miles south of downtown Salt Lake City in the heart of the Salt Lake Valley. From furniture, home decor, candy, quilts, bedding, jewelry, women's and kids' clothing, antiques and more, our shops are brimming with fabulous finds for you and your home. Enjoy lunch or dinner at Archibald's Restaurant or Naborhood Bakery. Savor hand-dipped chocolates and caramel apples at the Chocolate Covered Wagon. Host a meeting or wedding at The Gathering Place or Archibald's Restaurant event spaces. Relax with a massage, pedicure or manicure in the Cottage Retreat Salon & Spa. Have professional photos taken at Camera Shy Photography. Delight your children at a year round petting zoo and pony rides. Gardner Village comes alive each October with the popular WitchFest, elves at Christmas and Woodland Fairies during the spring. Wasatch Front Farmers Market makes its home at Gardner Village July through October. Spend the afternoon or day milling around Utah's favorite shopping, dining and historic experience.

Gardner Village is a really lovely, fun shopping experience for both kids and adults. It is exactly as the title says, a beautifully laid out, tiny village with some authentically historic buildings. Though it's a little out-of-the-way for the average visitor to Salt Lake City (located about 25 minutes away from downtown, in West Jordan), it's well worth the effort if you have the time. Most of the shops are small, locally owned businesses, and you can actually find a number of items handmade in Utah. There's a great candy shop that also has really good cocoa and ice cream, a toy store, a knitting store, kid's clothing, a great consignment housewares store, and so on. During the Christmas season, they have scenes from an elf village place throughout, with a scavenger hunt for the kids. In the field next to the village, they often have activities set up for kids - pony rides, and so forth. I highly recommend it as a shopping outing, especially if you're looking for something a little different.

We got the explorer pass which allows you to visit The museum of natural history, farm country, the museum of natural curiosity, and the gardens. In one day's time, we were only able to get to three of the four. We left for dinner and then went back. We probably could have gotten to everything if we ate on the premises. Our kids' age range from 13 to 4. Everyone had so much fun! Another review said it wasn't worth a drive, but I disagree. We drove down from Idaho and made a weekend out of it! Totally worth it. We all want to go back at some future point.

This was so fun! The owner was incredibly nice and even came outside to take some photos for us! This was definitely worth the quick drive from Salt Lake City!
The owners allow people to do photo shoots  (with balloons - cuuuute!!!) but they request that you contact them in advance.

Had a few minutes to burn so took my son on the par 3 course.... Course is in poor condition at best and runs parallel to driving range ( no fence separating the 2) Needless to say you are constantly stepping over range balls and looking over your shoulder thinking you might get hit! Service was good.
