I recently took my family to the World of Illumination in Salt Lake City, Utah. It is located at the Utah State Fairgrounds. I was blown away by how big it is. There are so many lights to look at and the drive-through is long so you get to spend a good amount of time enjoying the lights and music. This is the perfect Christmas family activity! You can also do it on a date, with a group of friends, or as part of a party! Just pile everyone into a car and head out to the Utah State Fairgrounds. It goes through January 1st, so be sure to get your tickets at https://www.worldofillumination.com/tickets/arctic-adventure-ut. It runs every night, yes even Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, from 6 pm to 10 pm. (and it’s open rain or shine).
A place where bright ideas are born and imaginations run wild. Where light and sound collide to spark innovation and ignite the human spirit. We raise the bar, set the standard, and lead the world by creating uniquely themed experiences that tell stories, bring awareness, educate, and inspire. Built by dream shapers and magic makers, World of Illumination is a place where memories are made, moments are shared, and the brightest light comes from within.

We really had so much fun at our drive-through. The kids sat on the window and soaked it all in. It does get REALLY cold, so be sure to dress warm and bring blankets. We also like to bring snacks and hot cocoa.
