As Ned Stark says, “Winter is Coming.” But, we still have some summer left to enjoy.
For those of you who are excited about autumn and winter, this may not be for you. But you might just get some good ideas for those friends of yours that want to eek every little bit of joy out of the remaining summer. For those of you who don’t love the cooler temps, here are a few ideas to really relish the remaining warmth of the year.
We’ve already talked about ways to beat the heat here in the valley, and many of these ideas still stand for the remaining summer. Remember all those water parks and splash pads we mentioned last month? They are all still open. Most have, at least, weekend hours through Labor Day.
Have you been to see the Salt Lake Bees play yet this year? They are third in their division this year and have had a great season. They have games scheduled through the end of September. Go enjoy America’s favorite pastime, have a hot dog, maybe a beer, and enjoy the game.
Outdoor Music Events
There are still plenty of good outdoor music events scheduled through September as well. Red Butte Gardens has some great shows coming up, as does Usana, Deer Valley, the Gallivan Center, and Sandy Amphitheater. You know we love our music over here. We just want to share that love.
Hiking and Biking
And there is still plenty of daylight for some after-work hours hiking and mountain biking. There are a ton of super-accessible trails for hiking and biking. A couple of notable easy hikes in the valley are Ensign Peak, The Living Room trailhead right in the foothills. Head up Big Cottonwood and a short easy hike with great views is Donut Falls. At the top of the canyon near Brighton, you can hike Lake Catherine and Lake Mary. Both moderate trails, but worth the time and effort.
And if you need to escape the valley, head up Little Cottonwood on any weekend from mid-August through mid-October for some great food, good beer, and family-friendly entertainment at Snowbird’s Oktoberfest.
There is still plenty of time to get out and enjoy the summer. We’ll be out there, will you?
