Spending time in the wilderness serves as a potent reminder that all life is one, including the creepy moose that has been eyeing your ham-and-cheese sandwich for the last half hour. Commune with nature at a safe distance with today’s Groupon: for $24, you get four tickets to the International Sportsmen's Exposition at the South Towne Exposition Center in Sandy (up to a $48 value).
Running from March 17–20, the Sportsmen's Exposition brings all the trappings of the sportsman's life under one giant convention-center roof. Experts in a myriad of outdoor sports, such as fishing and big-game hunting, provide tips for upcoming trips into the wild, and interactive exhibits allow expo-goers to test fly rods, climb a rock wall, and pit arrow-launching skills against fellow bowmen with a 3-D pop-up archery contest. A fully stocked indoor fish pond, meanwhile, lets kids master catch-and-release skills to test out on older siblings when they get home. The event has hundreds of exhibitors selling top-of-the-line outdoor gear and touting sporting destinations from around the globe. The convention center has ample parking and is easily accessible by TRAX. Children age 15 and under are admitted free with a paying adult, and active military members are admitted free with military ID.
