Wheeler Farm
Close to Murray and Midvale, Historic Wheeler Farm is a rural oasis in the heart of Salt Lake County. Free admission will allow you to enjoy picnic areas, 40 acres of woodlands, and a playground. This opportunity to get some fresh air and reconnect with Utah’s farming history can enrich the first summer in your new Salt Lake County home.

Lagoon Amusement Park
Over the past 137 years this garden of thrill rides, fair style midway games, junk food, and other amusements has played a role in the life of many Utahns. Whether it’s for sunset views of the Great Salt Lake from the Ferris Wheel, or to experience Cannibal’s beyond-vertical drop, Lagoon Amusement Park has something for every enthusiast. And continued innovation will be sure to offer new experiences for years to come.

Cherry Hill
If thrill rides aren’t your thing, just up the road from our earlier entry sits Cherry Hill. This Kaysville attraction is closer to a recreational campground than an amusement park but still offers a lazy river, children’s splash pad, and mini golf among other attractions. Making this location great for young families, laid back date nights, or if you can’t devote a whole day to a summer outing but still want to get out of the house.

The Utah State Fair

Starting on September 7th and running through the 17th, the Utah State Fair is the perfect outing to say farewell to summer. Whether you’re looking to learn more about the modern agricultural industry or just want to satisfy your cravings for deep fried oddities. You will find what you’re searching for. Not to mention, what better way to celebrate the purchase of your new home than by celebrating the state you call home?

Summer in Utah is a wonderful time of year with a lot of events going on. If one of those events for you is the search for a new home, please consider reaching out to our new home specialist, or visiting our communities in Murray, West Jordan, and Midvale today.
