Salt Lake City, UT
Traveling this spring or summer? What better way to take a break from summer vacation family fun (ie, the long drives!) than to run around a real farm? The Wheeler Historic Farm, listed on the National Register of Historical Places and commanding 75 acres, is the ideal place to stop and play while driving through Salt Lake City and the surrounding metropolitan area. You’ll find an activity barn, tree house, ponds and animal pens. Adults and older kids will like the tour of the historic buildings, including the farmhouse. You can even milk cows (every day at 5 pm, cost is 50 cents) and go on a tractor-drawn wagon ride.
