Both A Restaurant And A Gift Shop, Utah’s Rainbow Gardens Is An Underrated Day Trip Destination
If you’re looking for a fun day trip with family or friends, head up to Ogden to visit Rainbow Gardens. This delightful spot offers a beautiful restaurant, gift shop, and hiking trail. Check it out:
Rainbow Gardens has been a family-owned destination since 1946. Nestled at the foot of Ogden Canyon, its backdrop is the beautiful mountains.
Step inside to find a restaurant that's lush and inviting. The Greenery's dining room is filled with plants and flowers.
Start your meal with a Mormon muffin, the house specialty. Made from an old pioneer recipe, this warm walnut bran muffin is served with honey butter, and it's absolutely delicious.
The Greenery's menu includes six fresh salads, or you can choose to take a tour of the soup and salad bar.
The sandwiches and burgers are delicious, and you'll have plenty to choose from, with a dozen sandwiches and six charbroiled burgers on the menu.
After lunch, take a stroll through the 20,000-square-foot gift shop. It's filled with all kinds of home decor, clothing, and gift items.
This is a shopping experience unlike any other. Rainbow Gardens has 20 different departments that include everything from pretty houseplants to designer handbags. You'll also want to check out the large selection of homemade food items.
You could spend hours just looking at the greeting cards alone!
When you're all done shopping, head outside for a little fresh air and exercise. The Rainbow Trail serves as a trailhead for the Bonneville Shoreline Trail, and also takes you to Birdsong Trail, a 2.4-mile loop.
