Sun Tunnels | 12 Utah Staycations

First things first, have you entered to win our Epic RV Staycation Giveaway with Access RV? We've been planning this RV trip for months and we could NOT WAIT to share it with you! Our first place we stopped is WAYYYYYYYY out there, like, way out there! Have you heard of the Sun Tunnels in the Great Basin Desert? They are LITERALLY out in the middle of nowhere. Luckily, Google Maps directions take you RIGHT to the location. We were a little worried about the dirt road with our RV, but nothing an RV couldn't handle. The drive is LONG

Peach City | 12 Utah Staycations

We've been long-time fans of Peach City in Brigham City! We were happy to visit once again. You can either drive-in and eat in your car or eat on the patio or eat inside. We ordered the favorites of Brigham City! Since it was Peach Days and it was quite crowded, they had a hostess that helped seat everyone super efficiently. I was quite impressed with their system. We had the Bleu Cheese Burger, the Turkey Burger, shakes, fries and waffle fries! Everything is always delicious. After swimming at Crystal Hot Springs we even went back for ice cream. We

The Great Salt Lake is Pink at The Spiral Jetty 2019 | 12 Utah Staycations

Do you remember last year when we found out the Great Salt Lake was turning PINK?! Well, it's happening again! To find out why The Great Salt Lake is turning Pink head to our post from last year. We'd just finished eating at Idle Isle Cafe in Brigham City and we thought that NOW was the time to head to the Spiral Jetty and see the Pink Great Salt Lake too! On our way out, we found this brand spanking NEW mural that's just been painting in Corrine! Located on Promontory Road. You literally, can't miss it if you drive

Idle Isle Cafe | 12 Utah Staycations

Idle Isle Cafe is the OLDEST restaurant in Utah! It's a family-owned business that has quite a few years behind them. I think they said Idle Isle Cafe opened up in 1920! Idle Isle Cafe has so many vintage original pieces and architecture it's amazing! After watching the Peach Days Parade and then hitting up some rides we were ready to eat! By the way, the parade was STILL going! That's one amazing parade, it was almost 2 hours long! Because of Peach Days, Idle Isle Cafe changed up their menu to incorporate all things Peach! If you can, try

Peach Days in Brigham City | 12 Utah Staycations

Was it just by chance The Salt Project planned a Staycation during Peach Days in Brigham City? NOPE! Neither Steph nor I had been to Peach Days and have always wanted too! Thanks to our awesome partner; Box Elder County for making dreams come true! As we were driving through Brigham City, we saw that they were setting up for Peach Days and knew we needed to walk around. We've come to love walking through the small towns we visit, especially the main part of town. Walking through town gives you a whole different perspective and it's super fun to

The Rusted Spoon | 12 Utah Staycations

The Rusted Spoon is a super cute diner located right off Utah's Famous Fruit Highway in Perry! We happened upon The Rusted Spoon a few years ago and LOVED the atmosphere and food! It's a good family friendly, party place! The salads were fresh and just what we needed. You can order breakfast ANY time and for some reason, that sounded super delicious. Can you believe the size of this kids pancake meal? Or the kids WAFFLES?! I thought it was my meal? Nope. Orion could barely believe his eyes. The waffle was REALLY tasty and of course everything was

Willard Bay State Park Cabins | 12 Utah Staycations

I'm not sure we've ever been to Willard Bay State Park to actually swim, but we have been to their Christmas Light show! We were SUPER excited to visit, especially since we were staying at the Cabins at Willard Bay! Thanks to our partners at Box Elder County for setting up our stay! We weren't quite sure what to expect, but the Willard Bay Cabins are so fun! It's a little log house that can sleep up to 8 people. You'll need your own pillows & bedding, so don't forget that!

Mantua Reservoir | 12 Utah Staycations

Right next door to the Little Valley Country Store is Mantua Reservoir! It's a beautiful reservoir that's normally a good place to go swimming. Except this time of the year the water has been sitting a while and now people are told not to go swimming because of swimmer's itch. We've gone plenty of times previously and never had a problem. We didn't really notice the signs UNTIL after everyone had been playing in the water. Be sure to check those before swimming. We washed right off quickly and luckily, no on had drank any of the water. We're happy

Mantua Monster at the Little Valley Country Store | 12 Utah Staycations

On our way back from Inspiration Point we stopped for lunch at Little Valley Country Store in Mantua! Home of the 25 cent ice cream cones and the Mantua Monster Burger!! It's one of our favorite places to stop in Mantua (also one of the few but the Poppies!) Not only is the Little Valley Country Store an awesome place to get some food. There are desserts and you can camp or rent cabins if you want to stay! This was Harmony's first time laying her eyes on the Mantua Monster and she even ate it! Well, she shared half
