Are you a fan of Butch Cassidy and Sundance Kid? Well, you better head to Grafton Ghost Town, because it was filmed right here in Utah. (Parts of it.) You'll want to start singing "Raindrops keep falling on my head."
We're continuing with Rhiannon's Antelope Island Hike post. See Buffalo Point Hike here.
I didn’t really plan to do this hike at first, but while driving I saw a sign that said “Guided Hiking tour at 1pm” it was 12:55 when I saw the sign and I thought ‘WHY NOT?’ I wanted to take advantage of the 10$ entrance fee!
Antelope island is SO COOL. I love that there are other posts of Antelope Island on the Salt Project. Because really, if you live in northern Utah and you haven't been, you should. That's it. No excuses. It's awesome, and I feel like it's SOOOOO UTAH. This is perfect for Spring.
Auntie Rae’s Dessert Island, located in the heart of Holladay at 4704 South Holladay Blvd, became a sweet oasis for my two little boys and I on a rainy night when my husband was working late and we were in the mood for dessert for dinner. We were quickly charmed by the warm environment of the bungalow turned dessert shop and by the cute, helpful gal behind a display of tasty treats. I mean, what’s not to like about a place with the phrase “dessert island” in the name?
One of the ways we have figured out to beat the winter blues in our house is swim lessons. It has helped us have something to look forward to while the snow keeps falling. Growing up and living in Florida most my life, swimming and water sports were an every day thing. When we moved here I wanted to make sure my girls still developed a love for the water and the skills to stay safe near it.
These guys have been on my radar for years! Salt City Pizza is locally owned since 2004. Frank the owner was there and made a few recommendations for us. Oh you guys! I just LOVE family owned businesses! You can just feel the love they put into what they do.
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!
Did you know Zion National Park was Utah’s First National Park? Well, I didn’t, but after visiting I can tell why this enchanting 147,000-acre parkland was named so in 1919. Hiking in Zion is world famous, lucky for us Utahns, it is only a few hour drive away from Northern Utah. There are many family friendly hikes in the park. One of the most legendary is the Zion Narrows. Doing this hike with kids intimidated me when we were planning our trip, but it proved to be our favorite hike of all.
If you’ve ever been to the summer Downtown SLC’s Farmer’s Market then you know how much fun it can be. We find ourselves there a few times each summer buying fresh flowers, pasta, pesto, produce, bread, dog treats and whatever else we can find while munching on samples from local vendors and sipping on a mint limeade. So when I found out there was a winter market I was hesitant to visit thinking that it was sure to disappoint compared to the summer market.
I found a Groupon for a new ‘kid-friendly’ rock climbing place in Lehi, Utah. The sessions come in one-hour increments (additional hours can be purchased for $5) and it seemed like the perfect way to burn some energy indoors. The price was reasonable, so I went ahead and purchased.
