Local places and events to weather the late winter months

Gray skies, gray snow, and brown everything else (often covered by layers of wet cold nonsense falling out of the clouds) seems to be what life is about. Gone are the merry elves, charming reindeer and Christmas lights. All we are left with is the lonely dark that starts much too early in the morning and comes back way too early in the evening. The kids have cabin fever and you all need something to get you out and about. Well, here is a list of places to go to help you keep your sanity, hopefully.

The Hive Trampoline and Adventure Park
955 N Main Street Spanish Fork

This fun center is a great place for people of all ages to get active even when it’s below freezing outside. With trampolines, an arcade, dodgeball arena and more, this is a great place to run off some energy. For pricing, hours and more visit www.hiveparks.com.

Coin Crazy Family Fun Center
1024 Expressway Lane Spanish Fork

 This family center has games of all kinds for you to have fun while staying warm and dry inside. With a fully stacked arcade, laser tag arena, bowling lanes, and even the latest VR powered gaming experience available, and a food court, you can make an afternoon or a day of it. Check them out online at www.coincrazyffc.com

South County Lanes
122 W 900 N., Payson

For those who are interested in something a little more traditional, South County Lanes has all of the charm you’d expect from a family owned and operated Bowling Alley. This bowling alley and family fun center is a great place to bowl a few games (take a few frames and make a turkey) and hang out in a family friendly, laid back atmosphere. But don’t let their easy going appearance fool you, they also boast a laser tag arena, arcade, and billiards. Check them out online at bowlinginpaysonutah.com.

Springville Museum of Art
126 E 400 S Springville

If you’re looking for something a little more low key, check out the Springville Museum of Art. This unique attraction in Springville holds an amazing collection of art composed mostly by Utah artists. They host unique exhibitions that change frequently to keep the art fresh and exciting. 

From Feb. 3 to Mar. 22, the 52nd Annual Utah All State High School Art Show will take pace. This unique event will highlight more than 300 works of art from over 100 high schools around Utah. Come out and enjoy beautiful artwork while supporting our young artists. Visit www.smofa.org for more information. 

Hopefully one or many of these places will help drive away the doldrums that are the late winter months. There’s always an adventure to be had somewhere, and sometimes we just need someone to tell us where to look for one. Happy winter!
