All this Covid jazz had us ready to skip town and get away for a night. I packed up the kids mid week (husband had to work), and we ran away to Spring City for a little staycation. I had never been to Spring City, but had heard so many good things.
There is a natural spring, historic houses, not a single stop light, and some of the kindest people in Utah. We were only there for 24 hrs, but we woke up to find the sweetest gift on our air bnb porch before we left. Fresh farm eggs and herbs from a stranger that we happened to meet on one of our walks around town.
We met so many sweet people at the spring and on our walks. Everyone stopped to chat and we ended up making some dear friends. I can't wait to go back and visit.
Like I said, we stayed in a little air bnb. It was new, but built to resemble some of the historic homes in the area.
Good thing we packed our wheels! We explored the city on foot. Highly recommend.
Isn't this little farm house cute.
We also met some pretty sweet furry friends.
Our walk took us by the Horseshoe Mountain Pottery. This little place is open 24 hrs. If the owner isn't in, you just pick the item you want, calculate the tax, and place your payment in the metal gate box. How awesome is that!
Luckily the owner was in and the kids got to watch him throw some pots.
Next stop was the Natural Spring. The water was so cold and refreshing. Be sure to bring some containers so you can take some home with you.
Back to the air bnb, it had a little lavender farm in the backyard.

Wells was so tuckered out after a long day of exploring. He said he wanted to sleep on this little shelf in the bunk room. And he actually fell asleep there!
Playing in the yard.
One more trip to the spring before heading to Palisades for the day.
We can't wait to go back.
Check out the historic homes tour.
And the lavender harvest festival.
