Celebrate Your Anniversary…and Utah’s

July brings with it numerous celebrations, including Utah’s Pioneer Day, the 24th of July. On this day, we commemorate the birth of this beautiful state and honor those who founded it. Due to the occasion, “This Is The Place” State Park hosts numerous activities for all to enjoy. Whether you celebrate your anniversary in July or are just looking for a staycation, the State Park and Anniversary Inn have you covered.

Though “This Is The Place” State Park is usually a family destination, that doesn’t mean couples can’t join in on the fun. Typically, anniversaries consist of a romantic dinner and maybe a movie. Mix things up and take your sweetie to the Park to discover what it has to offer.

True to its heritage as an old pioneer town, the Park features original 19th century buildings and homes that have been relocated for preservation purposes. Barns, cabins, stores, half-way houses – it’s all there, rich in history, to explore and enjoy. The park also hosts numerous celebrations throughout the year, especially in July. On July 4th, the Park will celebrate “Liberty Days” and on July 24th, they will celebrate “Pioneer Days.” Both celebrations feature summer food, races, pony rides, reenactments, craft projects, and games. Does riding a pony or participating in a three-legged race seem childish? So what! Join the fun for a memorable anniversary.

Celebrating your anniversary would not be complete without a romantic place to stay. Following the theme of Utah heritage, book a night at the Anniversary Inn on 5th South in Salt Lake City and reserve the Wild West Suite. Cuddle next to your honey and enjoy watching a movie in the back of an old covered wagon (don’t worry, the bed is modern). Relax even further by “walking into town” through the saloon-style porch and doors to find a luxurious jetted tub. With decor true to its name, this suite will take you back in time without leaving the comfort of the present-day luxuries.

So grab your sweetheart and make this year’s anniversary one to remember. Make the most of Utah’s July festivities and let Anniversary Inn do the rest.
