Saratoga Hot Springs | 12 Utah Staycations

The first time I heard about these hot springs was last Oct 2018. I was participating in the Questival Race and one of our challenges was to jump into a natural hot spring. It was late, dark, and FREEZING! We parked, changed into swimmers, ran down the path in the dark, had no idea what we were jumping into, stayed for a minute and then ran back to the car so we could compete another challenge. I wasn't planning on visiting again in October, but this time we were equip with light so we could actually see what we were

Bonneville Seabase | 12 Utah Staycations

Did you know that you can Scuba Dive or Snorkel in the middle of Utah's Desert at a place called Bonneville Seabase?! NEITHER DID WE? As we drove around the Great Salt Lake, visited the Sun Tunnels, ate at a buffet in Wendover and drove through the Bonneville Salt Flats, I realized we didn't have anywhere to stay for the night. While searching for RV spots to camp I found this listing and I was like "I don't care how much it is, we are staying the night at Bonneville Seabase!" Luckily, it wasn't expensive. It was like $5 to

Meadow Hot Springs Spot 2 | 12 Utah Staycations

After visiting U-Dig Fossils in Delta, Steph's fam headed one way and we headed another! Another perk of RV Trips! You can go wherever you want! Stephanie visited Meadow Hot Springs the day before and we visited the next day. The last time I visited Meadow Hot Springs was in February 2016! Goodness, it's been too long! The first spring is always busy. The kids loved wandering around the edges and playing on the mossy rocks. Don't forget floaties for the kids. How funny is the toilet inflatable? Ha, we thought it was a spaceship, but come to find out

Meadow Hot Springs | 12 Utah Staycations

Another bucket list item that has been a long time coming, Meadow Hot Springs! Check out our original post HERE for ALL the info. RVing to hot springs is my new favorite thing. It was so nice to be able to have a warm place to go and change after swimming. Harmony's post led us straight to the spot! There are 2 pools but the one with the dock is cooler, and since it was pretty cold we decided to stay put. These springs are pretty deep, so you definitely want floaters for littles. You can stand around the edges

Crystal Hot Springs | 12 Utah Staycations

We closed out our Brigham City Staycation with a good old trip to Crystal Hot Springs in Honeyville Utah! We've been coming to Crystal Hot Springs for years now and we LOVE it! Crystal Hot Springs has recently made some changes to their resort too! There's a whole new cave area with a shallow pool. Our kids spend the majority of the time here. Don't forget about the giant tube slides! Our kids LOVE the slides! The slides are open all year round and even in the winter it's super fun. Be sure to bring some water as the Hot

Red Hills Hot Springs | 12 Utah Staycations

Right after visiting Mystic Hot Springs we were told there was another hot spring nearby and this one was FREE! While Mystic Hot Springs is beautiful, one can't pass up a free hot spring! I was actually very surprised by this sign. Many hot springs are trashy and not well kept, but this one, this lovely community hot spring was obviously well cared for. There was a grill, a firepit, a swinging chair and hardly ANY trash on the ground. Please, PLEASE keep it clean for everyone! The kids could have spent HOURS here. They loved being able to divert

Old Indian Hot Springs in Corrine

During our Questival Race to the Spiral Jetty on our quest to find the Pink Salt Lake, we just happened to pass this steaming graffiti wood wall on the side of the road in the middle of know where. I had heard rumors that there were hot springs out this way so we decided to stop and see if this was it. Sure enough, we found them. They are a bit dodgy, so much so that I wasn't willing to jump in, and I'm usually down for anything crazy like that. There were a couple of people there soaking after

Fifth Water Hot Springs Hike

I've had this hike on my to-hike list for at least two years. Trying to find a time when my kids and I had pretty much all day to spend hiking and playing since Diamond Fork Canyon is about an hour away from where we live. Summer came and this year went and my boys started school. Then Utah started putting on quite a show with fall colors, so I took advantage of a Friday when my boys were off and we set out in the morning along with three other moms from our Hike it Baby family. The trailhead

Why you should visit Crystal Hot Springs in the Winter

We've written about Crystal Hot Springs before, a few times in fact. I forgot how much we love coming to this place. I'm not a big swimmer, so it's not like I miss swimming during the winter but I do love a good hot soak, especially when the mineral content is the HIGHEST in the world. Yes, the water is a funky color and there is mineral build up on the sides of the pool but it's because it's full of minerals, that I'm quite convinced heal the body. (As all their signs say.) I'm about 7 months pregnant and

Meadow Hot Springs | Adventurin'

"Darkness must pass A new day will come And when the sun shines It will shine out the clearer" J.R.Tolkien I keep telling myself this. While I consider myself to be quite adventurous, I feel the despair of the winter blues often. Sometimes, I find myself pacing the house, feeling anxious because I just feel SO stuck. (First world problems right?) Don't worry friends, the spring is coming...it's can't be winter forever. We had to make our way to Southern Utah for a funeral and I thought that there has got to be something along I-15 to do. While the
