Hiking the Narrows | 12 Utah Staycations

Hiking The Narrows has been a life long goal of mine. I always pictured a big trip down to Zion with a group of people, taking a guided tour for an all-day hiking experience. Well our schedule got switched around and our Sunday morning was wide open, so when I saw people riding the shuttle in full gear I knew they were hiking The Narrows. I tracked down some gear to rent at a local spot just outside the gate of the park and then reached out to our amazing followers online for some tips. They encouraged me to go

Oscar's Cafe | 12 Utah Staycations

Oscar's Cafe is a popular place to eat right in Springdale Utah. We were able to visit on our 11th Staycation and it was DELICIOUS! Many of the places in Springdale were showing off their Christmas decorations and we didn't mind a bit. You can choose to eat inside or outside. Even though it was the middle of November, it was a beautiful night to eat on the patio. The chips and salsa were spot on. Tiny Vesper was eating hers with a spoon she loved it so much. The kids had happy meals with some homemade corndogs and fries

Things to do in Zion with Kids | 12 Utah Staycations

Zion National Park has so many epic hikes. I mean, Angel's Landing, The Subway, The Narrows. The whole world knows about these hikes. While they are epic, they are too epic for some young kids, like mine. I've been to Zion National Park so many times I feel like I've hiked everything there is to hike with kids. This last visit to Zion National Park was a little tougher because SOOOO many of the kid-friendly trails were closed! Weeping Rock (closed indefinitely) & The Emerald Pool Trails were closed for maintenance. We made the best out of the situation and

Mild to Wild Rhino Tours | Southern Utah harm Sat, 03/25/2017 - 13:57
Mild to Wild Rhino Tours were recommended to us by Cable Mountain Lodge where we were staying just outside of Zion National Park. We came to Zion for the hiking, so taking an ATV tour hadn't even crossed our mind. We were so grateful for the recommendation! Minimum age for riders is 3, our littlest is 2 so my husband stayed back at the lodge with my youngest two and I took the oldest two (9,11 yrs) with me on the tour. We had THE TIME OF OUR LIFE!! These guys definitely live up to their name Mild to Wild
