7 Magic Mountain - Las Vegas Nevada

Our first stop on our girls trip to Tahiti Village in Las Vegas, Nevada was stopping to hike the Crack in St. George. After arriving in Vegas, our next item was visiting the 7 Magic Mountains. The Crack is very narrow, but SO fun to hike. It only takes about 15 minutes to get up and back. Check out a full hiking guide HERE. And no road trip is complete without stopping in Beaver for a photo in the rocking chair. 7 Magic Mountains is such a fun spot in Vegas. Its easy to get to, just follow the road

Park City Grubbin'

Finding the best places to eat while on staycation is one of my favorite parts of a trip. We of course have to hit up our favorites, but it's fun to try someplace new as well. Here are our top family friendly picks from this trip. Red Banjo These guys are family owned for 6 generations! How cool is that. They are the oldest restaurant in Park City. They have amazing pizza. We tried the cauliflower crust and loved it! They also have touch free menus which was pretty cool. It was a little rainy, but we couldn't resist sitting

Park City FALL Staycation

Park City in the fall is our absolute favorite. The leaves start changing sooner than they do in the valley and it's a little cooler up in the mountains. We had a lovely stay at the Snow Flower in Park City. It was awesome because they have a kitchen and multiple bedrooms and bathrooms which helps so much when you have a family of 7. It would also be fun to stay with another family. The pool and hot tub were the highlight of our stay. (FYI, Snow Flower reached out with a special discount and they are keeping their

Poison Creek Bike Trail Park City

We love the Poison Creek Trail in Park City. Its a great bike/board trail. The last couple times we have walked parts of it, but this time around we happened to have some boards in the van so they kids were thrilled to be able to explore farther. The trail ends (or starts if you wish) at the McPolin Farm in Park City. We started at the end of Main Street and followed the trail under several tunnels, then we drove to the farm and found out that the trail connected! The Farm has parking just across the street, go

Lake Powell

Road trippin' ! This year has been quite the contrast from last year. With our 12 staycation project in 2019, plus a girls trip at the beginning of the summer, we had already been on 8 staycations by July, one of which was a 10 day humanitarian trip to Mexico. Fast forward to 2020, we kicked of January with a 10 day road trip up the coast of California. Then quarantine kicked in and all the happenings around the country so we had to cancel our trip to Taiwan in May and weren't planning any trips for the summer. But

1 Day in Spring City

All this Covid jazz had us ready to skip town and get away for a night. I packed up the kids mid week (husband had to work), and we ran away to Spring City for a little staycation. I had never been to Spring City, but had heard so many good things. There is a natural spring, historic houses, not a single stop light, and some of the kindest people in Utah. We were only there for 24 hrs, but we woke up to find the sweetest gift on our air bnb porch before we left. Fresh farm eggs and

More Fun in Bear Lake | Paris | Dingle | Zipz

I know you've all heard/read about/done fun things at Bear Lake (see past Salt Project posts here, here and here) but I'm here to assure you that there are still MORE fun things to do during your visit to Bear Lake that you probably have never done before! All of the activities are located in the Bear Lake Valley, which means they cover Utah and Idaho territory. Here's the list: Visit the Paris Tabernacle If you take a short drive north of Bear Lake on the US-89, you'll end up in Paris. Idaho, that is. I wish you could take

Corona and Bowtie Arches | Not in Arches National Park

This is a great hike in Moab to a giant arch- and the best part is, it’s outside of Arches National Park! So if you do not want to buy a pass into the park, this is the hike for you. It’s free! It's 3 miles round trip, with very little elevation gain outside of the first 5 minutes of the hike. It’s only a 20 minute drive from Moab City. There is little shade, and we all know how hot Moab gets in the summer time, so this one is best in the early morning in summer, or plan

Trains, Dinosaurs, Music, Oh My! | Thunder Junction All Abilities Park

You guys!!!!! If you haven't been to St. George recently, and there are plans to visit in the future, you simply MUST put the Thunder Junction All Abilities Park on your bucket list of things to do while there. Hands down, this is one of THE BEST public parks we've have ever taken our kids to. It's probably one of the best free public parks in Utah. Camille and I actually went separately and unknowingly wanted to both post about this amazing park. Camille went in November, while I went right after Christmas. I'd heard about this park, mainly because

West Yellowstone in ONE Day

Here is an easy guide for exploring Yellowstone in 1 Day! 4th grade pass! Wildlife! It's everywhere in Yellowstone. Keep your eyes peeled and watch for people pulled of the side of the road. They are probably looking at something amazing. Norris Geyser Basin If you only have time to see what Geyser area, this is the one we recommended. It was like walking on the moon! So incredible, so beautiful. The kids loved it. There were a few stairs at the beginning of the trail, but the rest was paved or a board walk, so you could take a
