Bear Canyon Suspension Bridge Hike for Christmas harm Thu, 01/03/2019 - 22:22
*update 1/2021 If you start this hike at the Hidden Valley park trail head you will cross 2 more cool bridges. We first posted about the Bear Canyon Suspension Bridge Hike over two years ago! Elise from @3KidsTravel gave us all the tips we needed so that when we hiked it ourselves we knew what to expect! (It's been on my bucket list since then check out the original article here.) Since we were traveling to Cedar City for the Holidays, we thought it would be fun to stop somewhere along the way we hadn't stayed before. We randomly decided

Kuwahara Wholesale Pumpkin Patch

From the second we pulled up to Kuwahara pumpkin patch I could tell it was going to be a hit with my 3 year old, Liam. He was giddy the moment that he saw the blowup decorations outside each of the various pumpkin patches. This pumpkin patch offers lots for kiddos to love and many spots to snap some fun photos. First, we walked through the traditional, main pumpkin patch and checked out each of the covered, themed pumpkin patches. My kiddos loved the inflatable tunnel in the back of the Frankenstein’s Cemetery patch and I loved the hanging plants
Wheadon Farm Park harm Mon, 09/18/2017 - 22:32
When I heard there was a farm themed park located in Draper I knew it would be the perfect place to spend a lazy Sunday afternoon so we packed up our kiddos and we were on our way. It's located right off of Bangerter Parkway you’ll notice a large sign letting you know you’d arrived at Wheadon Farm Park. The area was a working farm owned by the Wheadon family for most of the 1900s so the Wheadon family wanted the park to have a strong farm theme with opportunities for urban farming, recreation and relaxation. This 64-acre park has
Loveland Living Planet Aquarium Family Night harm Thu, 03/16/2017 - 23:28
My sidekick (son) and I are trying to do as many things in the Salt Lake area as possible. I am prone to cabin fever and I refuse to succumb to it yet again! There are so many things going on and I want to experience all of them. I had never been to the Loveland Living Planet Aquarium before yesterday, and am happy to report some awesome things going on there. On a regular day the aquarium is open from 10:00 am until 6:00 pm. Regular admission is $17.95 per adult, $14.95 from ages 13-17, and a child is

Bear Canyon Suspension Bridge Hike | Adventurin'

Hi! I'm Elise from @3KidsTravel. I love to hike and adventure around Salt Lake City with my three girls (ages 7, 5, and 3) when we aren't traveling the world. One of our friends recently told us about the Bear Canyon Suspension Bridge Hike in Draper and we knew we needed to check it out. We were going to wait until spring to go on this hike but we've been going stir crazy with the unpredictable weather this winter. So, we decided to just try it on a sunny Saturday even though there was still a layer of snow on
Tree of Life | Christmas Lights harm Sun, 12/04/2016 - 21:33
This truly is pretty spectacular. It's funny to think that one single tree can make such magical experience. This willow tree is quite the statement and draws a good crowd on a constant basis. This majestic tree has over 1,000 LED lights and just twinkles! If you find yourself down in the Draper area, be sure to stop by for a quick second. The Tree of Life isn't the only lit up tree either, the rest of park is colorfully lit too. You can drive by, or take the short two minute walk to the tree. I even saw a

Thai Siam | Draper, UT

Awhile back Stephanie took her kids to Thai Siam in Draper and raved about how delicious it was so much that we decided we all need to try it as well. Thus we were so pleased to get invited down after a trip to the aquarium. After drooling over the menu, we all finally decided to go with their lunch special because it offered two entrees to try out and we simply couldn't decide on just one thing. We also ordered a plate of lettuce wraps to start us off. For some reason my kids discovered them a few months
Loveland Living Planet Aquarium for Halloween harm Thu, 10/27/2016 - 20:34
We used to have an annual pass to the aquarium and LOVED going there quite regularly... the kids never got bored and between their 3-D theater, play area, shark tank, hands on exhibits, etc. we would spend the entire day there at least once a month. Since our pass expired we haven't been back in awhile and heard that there was a new Asia area that has opened up this year and were thrilled when the aquarium agreed to host us for a day. We got there right as they opened at 10 am sharp... along with what felt like
Staycation | Adventurin' harm Mon, 08/31/2015 - 21:19
A few weeks ago, my husband had Thursday and Friday off from work, which meant I was trying to pack in AS MANY fun activities as humanly possible. While I like to pretend that I am a planner, I'm also a completely spontaneously wreck. Plus, you'd think that we would know what to do in UTAH! Good thing I know this website to look at. ;) The week before, I gave the husband several options and let him pick, since I'm always adventurin' during the week without him. Here's what we ended up with for this day. Cherry Hill |
