If you're a local, the Thanksgiving Point Tulip Festival is just about the prettiest place you can visit during April.
Acres and acres of brightly blooming tulips and flowering trees.
Some people make a quiet day of it... They pack a picnic lunch, relax beside a babbling brook and stroll leisurely throughout the gardens.
OR!! You can take the Fast & Furious Tulip Tour! As in renting Segways and scooting around the grounds like hell on wheels!
I barely even looked at those tulips (too busy trying to stay upright on my Segway!) But, I'm going back soon to behave myself and take some decent photos.
* Thanksgiving Point Gardens (Lehi, Utah) is located south of Salt Lake City on interstate 15. Tulip Festival runs through May 2nd. Segway Championships begin the second you slap down $20 bucks for some big fun.
** It was all good until I segwayed into a hole. But, I landed on my head, so no harm done!
