It's October! That means Fall Break is just around the corner! It can be quite the task entertaining kids all day long. Luckily, family adventures don't have to break the bank. Check out these free activities you can do during Fall Break.
Visit a BYU Museum
BYU has multiple museums that will delight kids and adults alike. The Monte L. Bean Museum lets you get close and personal with wildlife from all over the world. Get cultured at the Museum of Art. Play with interactive exhibits at the Eyering Science Center. At the Museum of Peoples and Cultures, you can see anthropological artifacts from cultures around the world.
Take a Fall Foliage Drive
Take a little drive through one of Utah County's canyons to enjoy the lovely fall colors. For ideas, read our fall foliage drives post.
Go to the Library
Libraries are a great place to take the kiddos for an afternoon. Have everyone find a book to read or read one book together. Libraries also have free kid-friendly events going on. For example, Studio LOL at the Springville Library is an improv session for kids 8-12 on Thursdays.
Go back in time at Pioneer Village in Provo. The village comprises of actual buildings from the early days of Provo. Let the kids run around and explore the history.
Springville Museum of Art
As Utah's oldest museum for the Visual Arts, the Springville Museum of Art is the pride and joy of the community known as "Art City." The beautiful Spanish Moroccan style building would be worth visiting even if there were no art inside. Over 1,900 pieces of Utahn, Russian, and American art comprise the permanent collection. It's a great place to get your family excited about the arts.
Hike the Y
Complete a BYU tradition and hike up to the Y. It is a more difficult hike, but it is so worth it when you get to the Y. Bring your camera for the views!
Play at a Park
Bring a picnic and head over to your local park. To mix things up, visit one of Utah Valley's underrated family parks. You won't regret it.
