Grosvenor Arch | 12 Utah Staycations

Move or Arches, Grosvenor Arch is just as amazing and is way less crowded for sure! Grosvenor's Arch is located in Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument just south of Cannonville and it's STUNNING. We had just finished hiking at Kodachrome Basin State Park and knew we needed to drive the extra 10 miles south to Grosvenor Arch! This beautiful double arch is easy to walk up too and even more fun to explore. Part of the pathway is paved but you can go further and stand right under the arch. I was surprised to see other cars there for some

Ebenezer's Barn and Grill | 12 Utah Staycations

Ebenezer’s Barn and Grill is across the street, tucked in by the trees. We are super excited to share our experience with you. Thanks to Ruby's Inn & Garfield County for sponsoring our meals! We were literally the first ones there. We didn't realize that 6pm is just when the doors open, the buffet line didn't start until 7:30, so we had some time to explore. Luckily, the staff was super friendly had had some games and riding ponies for the kids. There’s even a dancing section, so Stephanie and Dan had to show us how it was done! It

Queens Garden in Bryce Canyon National Park | 12 Utah Staycations

Queens Garden in Bryce Canyon National Park is a .8 mile roundtrip hike. We’ve written about it here and here in the past. I’ll admit, it’s steep going in, but it. Is. So. Worth. It. It’s the most popular hike in the park and if you’ve hiked it before, you know why. Bryce Canyon National Park is completely breathtaking but unless you make the trek into the canyon, you won’t really experience it. We're super excited to share all about our fourth Utah Staycation! We've partnered up with Garfield County to share all about this area, so be sure to

Ruby's ATV Tours | 12 Utah Staycations

We're super excited to partner up with Ruby's Inn & Garfield county to feature Ruby's ATV Tours! Ruby's Inn has been in Bryce Canyon for over 100 years, so you better believe Ruby's knows all the cool spots! We had booked an ATV tour at 4 pm with Ruby’s Inn. After hiking Willis Creek, we had some down time to rest and then took our 3, 5, 6, 11, 14-year-olds to go for a ride! We left the babies with Dan (thanks for watching them Dan!) As long as your child fits into a helmet they can go on this

Scenic Drive : Cathedral Valley and The Temple of the Sun/Moon harm Fri, 07/14/2017 - 14:20
Choosing to do this long drive ended up being a wonderful idea because my kids SLEPT. So, for families who have toddlers/kids who still need that mid-afternoon nap I absolutely recommend doing this. Do a hike or two in the morning and then instead of trying to get them to sleep in a tent or dealing with grumpy kids, go on a long hike and have them sleep in the car! (If your kids can sleep in the car that is, not everyone is lucky.) The views on this road are GORGEOUS. The road is in pretty good condition too

Hickman Bridge Trail | Capitol Reef National Park

I love seeing arches and natural bridges! At least for me, I feel awestruck at seeing such land features. It’s so crazy that mother nature put such a thing here! It’s a pretty scenic trail too. I have seen reviewers refer it as “relaxing”, but maybe not so much when you have a set of toddlers, and you get a later start in the day, and it’s hot. This is a trail that is 2 miles round trip. The trail head isn’t too far away from the visitor’s center. Although one of my twins did have some serious struggles, my
Broken Spur Inn | Torrey harm Thu, 09/15/2016 - 20:48
Welcome, to The Broken Spur Inn! I was pretty excited to stay here. It has an awesome view, swimming pool, home baked goods, restaurant and cowboy attire. All things to make the perfect stay. The room was clean and organized. The bathroom, even cleaner. (I have morning sickness all day and so I made a prompt inspection on the toilet, unwillingly.) I love rooms that have themes, I think it makes for the whole experience. After spending a few minutes at the swimming pool and hot tub to get the last of the wiggles out we headed to bed. (Somehow
Capitol Reef National Park Day 2 harm Thu, 09/15/2016 - 19:46
Welcome to Day 2 of Capitol Reef! We only spent half a day in Capitol Reef National Park, so here's the 3 things we did. 1. Visit Goosenecks Overlook We woke up from The Broken Spur Inn, had a delicious breakfast and headed out. It was fairly cool for being the middle of the desert, but after 15 minutes walking out to Goosenecks Overlook we were sweating! We were soon taking off all the layers we had so carefully put on. Goosenecks Overlook is pretty amazing, not quite as cool as this Gooseneck but lovely nonetheless. The kids got quite
Capitol Reef National Park harm Thu, 09/15/2016 - 19:22
We woke up from our stay at Escalante Outfitters, walked the slot canyon near Boulder and after half a day of exploring, we finally made it to Torrey Utah. You might be wondering where all these little towns are in Utah, well, South-Central Utah is the best description. Why are we even in that part of Utah? It was my husbands super long way to drive to Monticello, which is in South-Eastern Utah. See, we were suppose to go to the Grand Opening at the Canyon Country Discovery Center in Monticello and my husband refused to drive the same way
