Things To Do at Bear Lake, Utah


We just got home from a wonderful vacation to Bear Lake.  I have many memories vacationing at Bear Lake with cousins, grandparents, aunts and uncles growing up and it is one of my favorite places in the whole world!

I wanted to share some of our favorite places for treats, activities and just fun things to do while you at Bear Lake (Garden City) -besides going to the lake of course! :) Some of these activities we haven't done yet, but they are definitely on our list for when we go back next year!

1. Get a Dole Whip at Zipz! 
Yep.. did you know Zipz in Bear Lake has Dole Whips?!! You don't have to to go to Disneyland to get one!! The coolest restaurant and their raspberry shakes are to die for!


2. Go GLAMPING! 
 Conestoga Ranch just opened this summer and has tents and wagons you can rent. How fun! Seriously check them out! 

3. Minnetoka Caves
Take a tour through the Minnetonka Caves! Explore this 9-room cave with a guided 90 minute tour. There are 400 steps in and out of the cave so be prepared for some walking :) There is a fee for the tour and groups of 15+ need to make a reservation two weeks in advanced. Check out the website for more info.

4. Paris Ice Caves
Located in Paris, Idaho. Bring sturdy shoes and your own headlamps or flash lights when exploring these caves. Find more info here.

5. Rent ATVS!
We always have a blast riding in the ATVs and I definitely want to own my own RAZR someday. Bear Lake Fun is one of a few places you can rent them.

6. Raspberry Days
Garden City's Harvest of the Raspberry crops during August.  People from all over the world come to try the famous raspberries. 3 days of fun including a parade, craft booths, a rodeo and ending with fireworks! See the dates and more info here.

7. Hike the Limbar Pine Trail

This 1.5 mile trail is a fun and easy trail for everyone as well as young kids! Find more info here.

8. The Pickleville Playhouse.
I recently learned about this playhouse and hoping we can go to a show next time we are in town. The  Pickleville Playhouse opened in 1977 and has features new shows each year. See more at their site!


What is your favorite activity at Bear Lake? I would love to hear it!

Patio and Yard String Light Ideas

String Lights add charm to any outdoor space!


I've always loved the idea of lights in the backyard. We moved into a bigger home this summer and love having a bigger backyard! I would love to add some more lighting above our deck and string lights are by far my favorite!

Watermelon, Blueberry and Coconut Salad Recipe



I sure love watermelon season. We buy a watermelon at least once a week and love eating it with our meals or as a snack.
