I love getting out and enjoy the community and what our beautiful state has to offer. My kids are always looking forward to the fun things we plan. This fall is even more exciting now that things are opening back up and we can go out and enjoy them again. Here is a big list of fall activities in Utah that you can do with your family and/or friends!
I will be updating it regularly to keep up with new things we find. If you know of something that is not listed, please leave a comment or email me at lovebugsandpostcards@ gmail.com!
This list includes everything from free events to paid, for kids, teens, and adults. There is a list of haunted houses in Utah and Corn Mazes in Utah at the bottom. Fall Activities in Utah are fun because you can get out and experience things in our beautiful scenery! Take a Hayride through a haunted forest. Go on a haunted river cruise. Get dressed up and go to the Witchfest! Get lost in one or all of the corn mazes! There is just so much to do!
