The Hogle Zoo is a Utah staple in the beehive state. And it’s open year-round. So you can see the elephants, giraffes, and yes, even the red pandas anytime. Be sure to look at their upcoming events. Monday nights are family nights and each person is only $5 between 5 pm-9 pm. This is your best chance to get larger families in for a great price.

This little oasis at the south end of Salt Lake City’s Liberty Park is just fun! The park has all sorts of birds from bald eagles to flamingos. Probably birds you didn’t even know existed. And check out their live daily bird shows too!
