You hear about all the activities you can do in Logan during the summer and winter, but what about those activities during the fall? The Utah Statesman staff has put together a list of great Logan time-spenders and date ideas.
Logan Canyon: Now that the weather is cooler, taking hikes won't be as strenuous. Also, for you photographers, the leaves are turning colors and the scenery is vibrant, it's a great time to take pictures. A barbecue at one of the dams or other spots is fun because you can build a fire and huddle around it to stay warm. It's a great group activity. The fishing is prime, and the Logan River runs right through the canyon. Lastly, if you just enjoy looking at the scenery on a nice, calm drive, the canyon is fantastic for that!
Willow Park Zoo: The zoo is located in Willow Park, next to the Cache County Fairgrounds. While there is no admission to get into zoo, those who maintain the facilities highly encourage visitors to leave a $3 donation at the box by the entrance. They have a variety of animals, including birds, big cats and reptiles.
Mini Golf: There are two courses in and around Logan. One is behind Angie's on Main Street, called Logan Miniature Golf. And it’s free. The other, Willows Golf Park, is in Providence. On regular nights it's $6 to play, but Thursday nights are Aggie nights and the price is dropped to $2. They also have great Halloween decorations when it gets close to that time.
North Logan Pumpkin Walk: For more than 20 years, North Logan has hosted the pumpkin walk to show how creative and crazy different they can be.
Corn Maze: There are two corn mazes. American West Heritage Center has a 7-acre corn maze open through Oct. 31. Little Bear Bottoms has a haunted river trail and a spooky barn ride in addition to its corn maze. It opened on Sept. 27.
Rock Haus Indoor Climbing: Located by the Cache Valley Fun Park, the facilities offer indoor rock climbing walls. Admission price includes harness.
Bowling: Logan is home to a pair of bowling alleys. Logan Lanes is located by at 1161 North Main Street. The business also has billiards, a small arcade and a cafe. The Gutter at the Fun Park in North Logan is another option for bowling enthusiasts.
Logan Skate Park: Right behind the Logan Aquatic Center, admission is free.
Jump Zone: A place full of trampolines to bounce on is a lot of fun if you'd rather be indoors. It's located at 1510 North 200 W.
George S. Eccles Ice Center: If you'd like to go ice skating, this ice center is at 2825 North 200 E in North Logan.
