I had heard of the Provo River Christmas Cruise a couple of years ago and had been wanting to try it. When I found out that all of my family was coming to Utah for Christmas this year... My mom and I were brain storming ideas for different activities we could while we everyone was here and that would be fun for the kids. I brought up the Christmas Cruise . First day everyone was here (Friday), we went.
It is amazing to me how many things there are to do in Utah if you really look into it. I mean, I have lived here for almost 10 years and am constantly still finding new fun things to do. Including this. I don't think I would make a yearly tradition out of it, but it was fun to try once and despite the fact that it was freezing, I think that everyone, including the kids enjoyed it.
It was just a small boat ride that went up and down a section of the river. There were Christmas lights everywhere strung across the river and in the trees and it was beautiful because the lights reflected off of the water. They also had Christmas music playing while the boat was going. In the middle of the ride, Santa comes in a canoe! Santa gives out candy to everyone on the boat and tells a story. The kids were all excited to get a high five from him.
It was a fun little outing with the family. The beginning of a fun week ahead. So happy they are all here!
