From November until March, winter keeps most people indoors, making them thirsty for newness and hungry for adventure. While some might enjoy a variety of winter sports, others who prefer warm weather often can get a little stir crazy.
Although Utah may still have snow until May, there’s always something to look forward to once the groundhog pokes his head out of his burrow. That’s when the slightest bit of sunshine warms residents after months of snow, and it becomes all too easy to catch spring fever.
If your family is looking for something to break the cold-weather monotony, look no further than Logan and the Cache Valley area. There’s plenty to do and see to help you get into that spring swing. Attend an art show or musical performance to reinvigorate your artsy side, or just see what outdoor activities are becoming available.
Here are some activities and performances to plan on:
A night out on the town
Whether you and your sweetheart are in need of a good date night or you’re searching for a way to entertain out-of-towners, there’s always a night out on the town to lift your spirits and show just how unique Logan truly is.
Get tickets to Ballet Hispánico to see the nation’s premier Latino Dance Company perform electric contemporary dance. You’ll wow your mate with such a romantic date idea, and you’ll definitely enjoy the stunning athleticism and style of these diverse dancers!
Before the performance, show some class by eating at LeNonne , where every dish is made to perfection by chef Pierre Antonio from Italy. Or check out the Mexican restaurants such as Cafe Sabor or El Toro Viejo, both highly rated. Or dive into some comfort food at Angies.
Sometimes family fun can be productive, so stop by the Divvy UP Children’s Consignment Sale March 20-23 at the Cache County Events Center. The shopping commences at 10 a.m. each day, and you’re sure to find some good things for summer fun and school in the fall. View their Facebook page here.
Bring your little ones to Baby Animal Days at the American West Heritage Center April 3-6. Watch their faces light up when they pet baby lambs, goats, chicks and pigs. There will be pony and train rides, mountain men and pioneers and plenty of games and entertainment. You can also see baby bear cubs and many other animals too. It's great for grandparents as well. If you can't make it to the festival, you can still pet the animals every Friday and Saturday in April. Tickets are only $9 for adults and $7 for children ages 3-11. Get $1 off by donating a can of food!
Arts and concerts
Girls nights, boys nights, date nights and casual hangouts are much easier when you focus around a fun event. Plan to attend some concerts or performances to liven up your evening and give everyone something to talk about. Collecting on the Edge: Part II is an art show featuring modern art by multimedia means. The best part? It’s free (and it makes you feel like you are in New York City)!
If that’s not your cup of tea, then head to The Antics, on Friday nights. This comedy improv group will give you some laughs, with tickets at only $6. See a beautiful ballet performance of Alice In Wonderland playing at the Ellen Eccles Theatre March 22-23 or a production of Mamma Mia in April.
Concertgoers rejoice at a performance of North by North Feat. The Strange at Cache Venue on March 20. Some upcoming free open mic events are happening, including Lavi$h on March 28 at Cache Venue and Women’s Voices, Women’s Votes on March 26 on USU campus.
Once the weather warms, there’s always lots to do outside. Hiking, bird watching, and backcountry horseback and RZR riding are all great ways to enjoy the beauty Cache Valley offers.
