Pickleville Playhouse | The Pickleville Grill | 12 Utah Staycations

The Pickleville Playhouse is located on the south end of Bear Lake. We'd actually never heard nor actually knew what went on in that building until I chatted with a local guy named Rich. Rich said we HAD to make sure and visit the Pickleville Playhouse! He had nothing but awesome things to say about it! Come to find out, it seems like everyone knows about Pickleville Playhouse! Before each show, you can choose to dine at the Pickleville Grill (which we totally recommend.) The atmosphere is lovely and fun and we happened to come on Fiesta Night! There are

Kayaking Bear Lake | 12 Utah Staycations

We were super excited to try Kayaking Bear Lake! It was an overcast day, but that didn't phase us. We rented Kayak's from Epic Adventures Rentals on the South Side of Bear Lake. Since the sky was turning darker by the moment, we decided just to kayak around the docking area, in case the wind picked up. The kids loved it. We didn't even have to go far, good thing too, because we saw lightning in the distance and really dark clouds rolling in. We decided to call it quits but vow to come kayaking again when it's sunny! As

Bike Ride to Garden City Park from Conestoga | 12 Utah Staycations

One of our favorite activities at Conestoga Ranch is the BIKES! We're super excited to team up with Conestoga Ranch and share all about our experience. Conestoga Ranch has bikes for almost everyone! There are tandem bikes, bikes with training wheels, kid bikes, cruisers all sorts of bikes. (Don't forget your helmet and to sign the waiver!) Seems like bike rides have been our new thang in each Staycation! I'll admit, they've quickly become one of my favorite activities. I've mentioned it before, but there is something totally magical about biking through a town. There's a WHOLE different feel to

Limber Pine Trail | 12 Utah Staycations

This is an awesome hike for littles! Which means it was very enjoyable for Harmony and I. Happy kids means happy moms! It's a simple 1.3 mile loop with 13 signs along the way that talk about the area. Educational bonus points for this one. And speaking of educational, when my kids got out of the car I took one look at them and said "y'all look like you're homeschooled"! It's ok, I can say that because we indeed homeschool, we just don't usually "look" like we homeschool. Always best to get a group photo "before" the hike. May 30th

Campfire Grill at Conestoga Ranch | 12 Utah Staycations

Do anyone else's children seem like they are a bottomless pit while camping? We only brought a bag of snacks and I was worried we wouldn't have enough snacks for the few days we were there. Over the course of 3 days, we were able to eat some delicious foods for breakfast, lunch, and dinner at Campfire Grill. Campfire Grill has an amazing menu. Everything we tried was amazing! Chef Vince knows his food! Thanks to Campfire Grill for hosting The Salt Project, it's no small feat to feed our army. How does one even describe their menu? With so

Did you know that Garden City is actually the city you are in when you visit Bear Lake? Thought we should share that random fact with you. It seems like most of us say going to "Bear Lake."

LaBeau's Drive-In & Bear Lake Bike Barn KOA harm Thu, 05/24/2018 - 22:03
Bear Lake Bike Barn KOA was kind enough to sponsor the Salt Project with some surrey bikes this past weekend. Have you ever ridden a Surrey bike before? Have you ever done a Chinese Fire Drill while 24 months pregnant on a surrey bike? (Peer pressure is still alive and well.) Well, let me tell you, it's kind of awkward and funny all at the same time. LaBeau's Drive-In 69 N Bear Lake Blvd, Garden City, UT 84028 Not far from the Bike Barn is LaBeau's Drive-In. I'm not gonna lie, those surrey bikes are kind of intense. After about

Epic Recreation RZR Adventure

My brother-in-law just asked me if Bear Lake is really all the fun. Since I had just barely gotten back, ya know, two days ago, I was like YA! But he and I are similar in the fact that we aren't really water people. Sure, I like to hang out at the beach once in a great while, but I didn't grow up boating or spending much time at the beach, so maybe it's the fact that I don't really know how to enjoy the beach??! We were more of a fishing/camping kind of family. Riding a RZR through the

What Makes Conestoga Ranch so Magical

Today, I woke up in my own bed and found myself a little upset that a truck was roaring up the road at 6:15 in the morning. Then, the dog needed to go out and then proceeded to bark for 20 minutes, then baby woke up... Let’s go back to two days ago, when my little family woke up in a wagon at Conestoga Ranch. All was quiet, serene and nearly perfect. Magic. Pure Magic. While Stephanie and her family have stayed at Conestoga Ranch before, this was my first time.My husband and I have been talking extensively about what
