Cabela’s in Utah

Aug 18, 11 Cabela’s in Utah

Cabelas UtahFood, Fudge and Fun Oh My! You’d think that the Lehi Cabela’s is simply a place to get your outdoor gear, but it’s quite the attraction and a great place to take the family or even a date for an affordable price.

The first thing you see when you walk in is a huge mountain with wildlife right in the middle of the store. Surrounding the mountain you’ll find some enormous live trout that love it when you feed them.

The first place to explore is the Aquarium. Walking through it makes you feel like you’re walking on the bottom of a lake, with a sunken fishing boat included. Feeding time (or shall I say feeding frenzy time) is something you don’t want to miss. The fish go wild for the live food (little fishes) and pellets.

Then there’s the shooting range/arcade and the talking moose.  Good luck trying to pull the kids or your date away from this one. If you’re planning on eating, you may want to do that first before you spend all your money on the arcade. If you have kids with you, it’s a good motivation for them to eat all their food and reward them with the games.

Their cafe is a fun place to eat, where their food and atmosphere are equally unique. As you sit at the tables you get a view of the mountain, wildlife, as well as bush plane flying overhead. As for the mouthwatering food, we like to get the either the Elk, Bison, or Wild Boar sandwiches. You get to “build your sandwich” by choosing the kind of bread, the inner fillings and condiments you desire on it.

For dessert, head over to their fudge shop which is tucked away between the shooting games and the cafe. Be prepared for a sugar high as this is the best fudge in the world! They’ve got flavors you simply don’t see anywhere else. My personal favorites are  the jalapeno fudge and “Power Bait” fudge. (They are better than they sound, I promise).

The Cabela’s in Utah is located at 2502 West Grand Terrace Parkway, Lehi, UT.  (If you see Thanksgiving Point, you know you’re in the right area. Cabela’s is on the opposite side of the highway). Plan on spending at least an hour there.

Stay tuned for more Provo attractions and the surrounding area.
