Epic Staycation Destination - BEAR LAKE

We are kickin' off our EPIC STAYCATION DESTINATIONS WITHIN 2 HRS OF SLC project with our 1st featured destination.... 



If  you've been here long, you know Bear Lake is definitely a family favorite for us. I've been going since I was a kid and it's been so fun to take my kids over the years and make memories.

Every experience has been different, but they all include fries and shakes. Every. Single. Time.

We have stayed in a tent, a yurt, a cabin, a condo... but this trip we stayed in an air bnb right down town called Casita Turquesa! Its a brand new townhouse, sleeps 16, had a garage, bunk rooms, a giant primary suite, and a beautiful kitchen, which is so convenient when traveling with kids. And the best part is, it's only a 3 minute walk from all the restaurants downtown, so the kids can walk to get all the shakes they want!

The new pickle ball courts are right next door, and access to the public off road trails and hiking is 1 block north. 

It was SO fun being right in the middle of everything. We walked or rode bikes everywhere everyday and the kids loved the freedom of running to the store alone. And I loved not having to find a parking place every time we were hungry. 

The best location if you have littles or, if you happen to have had ankle reconstruction surgery 3 weeks ago like me. I just rode my bike right up to the window to get food.

Without further ado, here are our top picks for our BEAR LAKE BUCKET LIST 2023!
