Thanksgiving Point is centrally located about half-way between Salt Lake City and Provo just off I-15 at the Point of the Mountain. Our signature water tower is easily seen from both directions just west of the freeway.

From I-15, take exit 284 (Alpine/Highland). Head west off the exit; turn left onto Thanksgiving Way and proceed about a half mile to Water Tower Plaza.

Water Tower: You've seen the iconic Thanksgiving Point water tower, but name withstanding, that's not all there is to Water Tower Plaza. You'll find distinctive shopping and dining options, along with beautiful outdoor spaces such as the Loggia and the Grape Arbor, both popular sites for receptions and parties. Come and experience it all.

Between the tower and the hotel are some landscaping rocks. Find the largest blackish one under the juniper and aspens. Deep underneath it is the pouch.

Dinosaur Museum: The Museum of Ancient Life has the distinction of being the world's largest display of mounted dinosaurs. Not only will you meet our fierce prehistoric friends at the museum, though, you'll also become a part of their world. While you're weaving through the exhibits, chirps of insects and growls of ancient creatures greet you in each hall. Exhibits like the Erosion Table and the Fossil Dig give you an opportunity be a part of the science of paleontology. Needless to say, this is not an ordinary museum.

On the east side of the museum, the top of the two-count double-decker rock formation on the cement seems to be pointing you to look deeply within the wall for a pouch.
