If you are looking for something super unique to do in Ogden, you definitely have to check indoor skydiving off your list at ifly. Our youngest flyer was 5 and he did amazing. I was so impressed by the staff and how helpful they were and how much fun they made the experience. Our kids went years ago when they first opened but Dan and I had never been, neither had our younger kids. So it was fun to do this activity all together. iFLY is an indoor skydiving facility located in Ogden, Utah. It offers a thrilling and unique
Ogden is one of our favorite cities, full of art and culture, but also nature and things to explore. We wanted to ride bikes through the whole city and really experience it on another level and I'm so glad we did. It was so fun. And Even Wells (Age 5) did great! Here are a few of our favorite things to see and do on Bikes in downtown Ogden. Ride the Trackline Bike Park and explore the old cattle rail yard. Stop and explore the Botanical Gardens. They are free to the public and great for kids to run around
Did you know Bear Lake covers two states! During our epic visit to Casita Turquesa Air BnB in Garden City, we went on a little road trip to the east side of Bear Lake to see the Shoe House. You know the nursery rhyme about the little old woman that lived in a show. Well someone built it! Little kids think its the coolest, and it has a pretty little magical beach also. On your way you have to stop for Utah and Idaho photo ops of course. Loving my SALTY hat from Salty Clothing Co The shoe house was
We always try to make a pit stop on the way to Bear Lake. This year we have more peace of mind having new tires and roadside assistance with our Treads subscription. This pit stop is closer to our house, but it was still worth stopping and letting the kids get out and see. It you look close there is a skull with horns at the base of the rock formation. I alway remember driving to Wyoming as a kid and driving passed but never stopping. But I always loved looking at it. Still do. Treads app is a monthly
We love Bear Lake so much! This was definitely the most EPIC part of the trip! I was so surprised by how affordable the activities were with tube rides starting at $1.50 and they had something for every age and ability. They even picked me up on a golf cart at the bottom of the hill after I went down the zipline since I was still using a crutch. I hadn't walked in 7 weeks, had been in my boot for a week, but still could barely put weight on it with 2 crutches, and on this day took my
We have rented bikes in Bear Lake before and its always so fun, but we only get to ride them for an hour so this time around we were thrilled to be staying at Casita Turquesa because it has a garage! We packed up the bikes on the trailer and biked all weekend. There is a paved bike trail that run along the entire west side of Bear Lake! We road to the beach, out to eat, and all around town. We walked or road to dinner every night. It was so fun! Our air bnb was only a 3
We loved having a garage at Casita Turquesa in Garden City so we could store our bikes, skip parking the car, and ride our bikes to the beach! Sometimes teens have to double up because they forget to bring a board. This boardwalk is at the back of the park. Its a short walk to the beach. It was a cooler day in mid June but the kids still wanted to get in the water and play. You can get rentals right on the beach! Or bring your own.
Garden City has a new pickle ball court! And the best part, is they are located right next to our awesome air bnb Casita Turquesa. We walked up when we saw everyone had left so we had the whole place to ourselves. Our kids love playing pickle ball too, so we just let them jump in where they can. But they usually just run around hitting balls everywhere. This set is inexpensive and cute, perfect for everyone to have their own paddle.
After an eternal winter and record breaking snow fall, Easter weekend was forecast to bring more snow, so we headed west to the desert for some sunshine. Mid April and this was literally the first "warm" day for 2023. And by warm, I mean 60's. At this point we were just grateful to see the sun! Our camper was still buried under 4 ft of snow in our backyard, so we helped our friends break in their new bus, and crashed with them for the night. Whats 6 more people and a giant puppy? I'm sure they didn't even notice

This is the best place to explore for all ages. There were babies in packs and toddlers climbing rocks, as well as many senior citizens out exploring. The path to the falls is clearly marked and short. About 5 minutes to the falls. You can see them great from the road too, if you just want to drive by. The path is soft sand, so be sure to wear good shoes. We recommend THESE so you're not walking around with your shoes full of sand. Plus, if your feet get wet, they will dry fast but still give you traction
