The Beloved Toy Store In Utah That Will Bring Out Your Inner Child

While we’d be quite excited if Santa delivered all the toys our little ones want for Christmas, the reality is that we are going to be visiting a toy store soon. Why shop at a big box store or an online retailer, when you can patronize a neighborhood shop? This year, shop local!

This beloved toy store opened its first store in 1978, and has been a favorite ever since. Now, with locations in Salt Lake City, Sandy, Logan and Provo, many Utahns can visit Red Balloon with just a short drive.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:

Visit The Red Balloon at one of its four locations in Utah:

  • 2033 East 3300 South, Salt Lake City
  • 778 East 9400 South, Sandy
  • 1940 N. Main Street, North Logan
  • 1200 Towne Centre Blvd., Provo

To help get you in the Christmas spirit, we’ve compiled a list of some Christmas Light Displays for you! You might also visit Helper, Utah’s Christmas Town for some holiday cheer, or take a ride on the North Pole Express with Heber Valley Railroad.
