*UPDATE: We just wanted to let you know that we just found out that Tracy Aviary just decided to only do $1 Wednesdays through February. So they won’t be doing them this March. So sad.

Winter is a great time because some of our favorite activities (that are usually expensive) are FREE or super cheap! Here are some of our top favorites. Let us know if you have any more to add.

Hogle Zoo

It seems like every year one or two of these days the weather is still warm and great.  But keep in mind it gets super crowded.

    • Friday November 11, 2016 – Free for military and veterans and their immediate family
    • Wednesday, November 30, 2016
    • Wednesday, December 28, 2016
    • Wednesday, January 25, 2017
    • Wednesday, February 22, 2017

Tracy Aviary

Free Days at Tracy Aviary

We have gone to Tracy Aviary quite a few times but I still feel like I learn something new every time.  The kids have so much fun and I feel like it is great for them to see all these birds and especially learn about the birds that live in Utah.

Tracy Aviary is offering FREE Admission every Wednesday in November, December, January, February and March! This gets you a FREE Admission ticket, but there is a $1 conservation fee per person.


The Loveland Living Planet Aquarium

The Loveland Living Planet Aquarium is a great outing for the kids. We have loved going.

There is a discounted night coming up. On Tuesday, November 15, 2016 admission for everyone is only $2! (Kids 2 and under are still free).

They are also offering free admission to Veterans and their immediate family members on Veterans Day (Friday, November 11, 2016) with a Military ID.



The Natural History Museum of Utah

These are the last free days for The Natural History Museum this year.

  • Monday, October 10, 2016
  • Monday. December 12, 2016

Advance reservations for Free Day will be made available online at 10:00 a.m. Mountain Time on the Tuesday prior to each scheduled Free Day.

A limited number of tickets will be set aside for visitors who arrive on Free Day without a ticket. We encourage you to come to the Museum on Free Day even if you don’t have an advance reservation.  If tickets are still available, you will be admitted.  You may be asked to wait until later in the day and, unfortunately, you may be turned away.


Red Butte Garden


Red Butte Garden’s is holding their Annual Holiday Open House on Saturday & Sunday, December 3 & 4, 2016

The Holiday Open House has become a wonderful tradition at the Garden. For two days they have free Garden admission to the public and fantastic local artists offering their work for sale. Every year we attract holiday shoppers looking for special, unique gifts and guests who explore the winter garden.
