Epic PROVO Bucket list

Utah County has been on our bucket list for years! We alway pass by but we have never made it a destination to stay and explore. I'm SO glad we finally made it down to explore. First off, we have to say that Provo exceeded all expectations. The small town charm, creativity, and endless number of places to eat and things to do, it would take weeks to fit it all in. We have compiled a list with the BEST OF THE BEST that Utah County has to offer. Now, remember, we only stayed for a weekend, and you can

Downtown Provo Mural Hunt

This is an awesome family friendly activity in the Downtown Provo area. No skateboards aloud on center street, so we recommending walking to these ones. They are all within about 3 blocks and Wells (2 yrs) had no problem walking to all of them. But we definitely recommend taking a stroller if you littles get tired easily. One time in Provo - Located on Center Street Fish Kiss Bubbles - Located just off center street at Fish Kiss Located on Center Street Zebra wall - Located just south of Lucy's Brazilian Kitchen The best gift is you - Located East

Bridal Veil Falls & River Walk

This is an awesome 15 minute paved trail, perfect for bikes, strollers, and skateboards and ends with a 607-foot-tall double cataract waterfall in the south end of Provo Canyon. If you just want to see Bridal Veil Falls, you have a couple options. You can pull right up and get photos from your vehicle at the look out point. You can park right next to the falls, walk across the bridge and you're there! Or you can start at the first parking lot (our recommendation) and walk 15 minutes along the paved trail that runs along the raging river. Once

5 things to add to your Sundance SUMMER Bucket List

Sundance in the Summer is so beautiful! We have only been here in the fall for the Haunted Lift ride & Zip Line. So it was nice to go up without coats and jackets and really just enjoy the beautiful mountains and scenery. We enjoyed three awesome activities while spending the day at Sundance. All were kid friendly, but would also make for an incredible date idea too. #1 RIDING THE SKI LIFT First up, we took the lift to the tippy top of the mountain. The sun was warm and the breeze was cool, we couldn't have picked a

Best Family Friendly Grub in Downtown Provo

We wanted to stay downtown at the Provo Marriott, just so we could walk everywhere and really get a feel for the city. We were able to walk to all the restaurants, activities, and murals during our stay. It was perfect. Ok, here's a wrap up our all the places we tried and loved. First up, Station 22 Southern comfort food? Yes please! These guys recently changed up their menu. We loved everything we ordered, the chicken was insanely good! We can't recommend it enough. Oh, and the biscuits & watermelon lemonade. Oh man. You can't go to provo without

Rafting the Provo River

Rafting the Provo river has been on our Utah bucket list for years. This year it went on our summer 2020 bucket list so I was thrilled to finally get to check it off! We took a guided rafting tour from High Country Adventure. This was a great option since we had an almost 3 year old. Since the water was so slow we were ok to bring him, but check before you book to see how fast the river is. I got a lot of questions about guided vs self guided. Pro's, if you have littles, or you are

The Wick Lab

Ok, we heard there was a place in town where you can make candles, I thought that sounded fun and knew the kids would enjoy it so we gave The Wick Lab a try. It was so cute inside! Every little detail was perfect. They are owned by the sweetest little family and you can tell how much love they have poured into this little shop. They have 100 scents to smell and choose from. Then you pick your favorites and smell them together to make sure thats what you want. They walk you through the entire process from placing

Rowley's Big Red Barn U-Pick Apples

We have driven by Rowley's Red Barn countless times, always with a promise of stopping one of these times. Our 1st visit was perfect timing because it was opening week for the U-pick apples! We arrived about 10 am on a Saturday and the crowds were very minimal. We timed it just right because the parking lot was full by the time we left. They have over 1000 acres, so although there were quite a few cars in the parking lot, we had an entire row to ourselves for picking and some cute photo ops. One of the owners gave

Visiting the BYU Museum of Art

Visiting Provo any time soon? If you're looking for something free to keep you and the kids entertained for a morning or afternoon, check out the BYU Museum of Art. This FREE museum is rad, and offers so many great things for families to do! In fact, it's one of the best art museums in Utah . . . and it's FREE! Recently, my family and I visited the MOA to check out a new contemporary art installation titled "Windswept", by artist Patrick Dougherty. My kids loved exploring the twisting forms created by intertwined willow saplings. The whole installation felt
