Celebrating the 4th of July is definitely one of my favorite summer traditions. Since moving to Utah I have found that the whole state really does go all out when it comes to holding incredibly fun 4th of July activities. Some of these activities I didn’t know about for years. Just in case you are like me and don’t know all that this state has to offer, this post has 12 of my absolute favorite family friendly 4th of July activities to do in Utah!
Hike the Y and watch the fireworks in Provo. This is such a fun activity to do in the evening on July 4th! Hike up to the top of the mountain (make sure to bring a lawn chair)! Sit and watch the fireworks all over the valley. It truly is a magical experience! It will take you about an hour, maybe an hour and a half to hike to the top so make sure to plan accordingly!
