Dreamy winter getaway at DEER CREEK RANCH HOUSE - Wallsburg, UT

We are always on the search for the most unique experiences and staycation ideas and we have an awesome one to share with you today! We just discovered the sleepy little mountain town of Wallsburg, UT. Have you been? We had such an amazing experience, the kids didn't want to leave. Obviously they didn't want to go home the last day, thats a given. But they didn't want to leave to go do anything else during our stay. And you know, we usually just "sleep" at vacation rentals because we are out exploring non stop, but this little ranch house

Homestead Resort | Midway Staycation

This past weekend, The Salt Project was lucky enough to be hosted by the Homestead Resort in Midway for a quick Staycation. We went up mainly for the Ice Castles and Homestead Resort, but you know we had to hit as many places as possible. All of which we’ll write about in the next few days. The Homestead Resort is one of the most charming places to stay, probably, because it’s an amazing historic area. The homestead opened over 125 years ago and it makes one feel like you've stepped back into time. Not only is the main building beautiful

Sleepy Hollow Wagon Ride | 5 Ways to get Spooked for Halloween!

(Photos above from KSL Deals) October means hayrides, pumpkin patches and getting spooked! I love a good scare every now and then but I don’t love the gruesome gory stuff! I’m a big fan of the old ghost stories and legends, ones that have been told around fires for over a 100 years! One of my favorite ghost stories has always been The Legend of Sleepy Hollow written by Washington Irving. I was so excited to discover Utah has its very own Sleepy Hollow during the month of October! Thanks to Rocky Mountain Outfitters in Midway you can take a

Snake Creek Grill | Grubbin'

After working up an appetite exploring the Midway Ice Castles, we were starving! I've wanted to eat in this cute little place for years! It looks like an old ghost town, or a western town from a movie, but there are shops and restaurants in the old buildings! This is a photo of Snake Creek Grill while they were filming a movie on location once. All of the old buildings here were brought here years ago from Idaho, and the owner of Snake Creek Grill said they have been there for 19 years! Pretty amazing! They had some pretty fancy

Dairy Keen | Grubbin'

We only make in to Midway and Heber City a couple times a year and one of our stops is always Dairy Keen. This family owned Utah business has THE BEST burgers and shakes in the area. The place is always busy and the service is fast. We have never had to wait more than a few minutes for our food. After you place your order you can go find a seat and they buzz you when your food is ready. They also have one of those fancy drink machines so the possibilities are endless for drink mixes.

Huber Grove Apple Picking

Fall is in the air and what better way to kick off the autumn season than with apple picking? I'm a serious sucker for all things fall related (football, gorgeous color-changing leaves, cooler temperatures, sweaters, boots, etc.), but especially the glorious harvest that this good earth has to offer. I'd heard about Huber Grove in Midway, Utah, last autumn, when my husband and I started learning about heirloom apples and how many hundreds and thousands (yes, thousands) of apple varieties exist throughout the world. Not just your standard Granny Smith, Red Delicious, Golden Delicious, Gala, etc. While researching U-pick apple
