The Salt Project was hosted by the Homestead Resort in Midway for a quick Staycation. We went up mainly for the Ice Castles and the Homestead Resort, but you know we had to hit as many places as possible. We've laid out our itinerary for you to follow along! 

Dairy Keen | Heber City

We've been to Dairy Keen in the past, a few times in fact. This place is always packed and an attraction itself. The kids can't get enough of all the trains.

Ice Castles | Midway | Homestead Resort

Day or night, these Ice Castles will stun you.

Homestead Resort | Midway

This historic, charming area will make you feel right at home.

Dottie's Kolaches Co. | Heber City

MMMMmmm. Be sure to stop at one of Heber City's favorite places for Kolaches and drinks!

Midway Hot Springs | Midway

Süss Cookie Company | Midway

These cookies will change your life. The Salt Project's FAVORITE Cookie place of all time.

If you are looking for a quick getaway in a small, charming, historic area, be sure to check out our past articles about Heber City & Midway. While they are two different towns, you will definitely want to go from town to town and check out the Swiss Area. We've been in Summer and Winter and it's charming either season.


We're super excited to team up with The Homestead Resort and Dottie's Kolaches to giveaway this awesome staycation!

The ice castles! I've got 4 little girls who would love to pretend they are Anna and Elsa.

A long soak in the hot springs while munching on a yummy cookie sounds amazing!

Midway is such an awesome place-winter there is magical! And those sweet treats definitely sweeten the deal!

My little 2 year old has chronic lung disease and the poor air in SLC kills us. We would love this staycation!!!

We just moved to Utah from Chicago 2 months ago. I'm a 4th generation Chicagoan of Polish & Rissian descent and I've really started to miss Chicago food lately. I just read your post about Dottie's and I am so happy to learn of a place here in Utah serving up homemade kolache (spelled "kolacky" in Chicago)! It makes me feel like there's part of my old home available here in my new home. :-)

The crater soak!!! And just the views and atmosphere of midway!!! I love it there! And Dairy Keen. I love Dairy Keen!!!

I would love to win this!! My family needs a vacation. We've never seen the Ice caves and that would be the highlight of this trip.

I love Heber! I got to volunteer near the homestead for Ragnar last year but I have never stayed there! This would be a blast!

Brianna Woodbury Wed, 01/10/2018 - 21:15

I’m excited to stay at the Homestead Resort (I’ve always had an unexplainable desire to go there) and for the kolaches! Who wouldn’t be looking forward to some fantastic food?

Destiny Riley Wed, 01/10/2018 - 21:15

This giveaway looks like an amazing experience!!! I would love to go see all of these places and share it with family and friends!

Ice Castles! Me and my husband went on one of our first dates together here and we love taking our two kids now! All of it sounds amazing though.

Jamie Morse Wed, 01/10/2018 - 21:16

I would love to stay at the Homestead! We stayed there as a family when I was about 8 and it would be great to do the same with my little family!

Lindsay Edvalson Wed, 01/10/2018 - 21:17

The ice castles would be so fun and eating food from all the other giveaway places would be amazing!!

Nisa Wed, 01/10/2018 - 21:18

I'm most excited for the ice castle I've been telling myself for the past few years that I would take my daughter up there. Maybe this will finally be the year!

Mandy Wed, 01/10/2018 - 21:19

We love the Homestead and haven't been on a family vacation in years! We've always wanted to take our kids there. The thing I am the most excited for is family time!!

Cammie Wed, 01/10/2018 - 21:20

This would be an amazing date night with my guy. We rarely get date nights so this would be over the top smacking
