Family Friendly Things to Do Near Zion National Park Utah

Family Friendly Things to Do Near Zion National Park Utah

We just got back from Spring Break at Zion Ponderosa Resort, and had the best time!  I am constantly feeling amazed by the beauty of Utah, and feel so lucky to live in such an incredible state!  Utah is home to 5 National Parks!  How cool is that?!  We love to take advantage of the diverse scenery of our home state.  There is nothing like the beauty of Southern Utah!  It is so unique and grand, and other worldly!  Did you know that all fourth graders in the country get a free National Parks pass?  Our oldest is in fourth grade, and we have loved taking advantage of the Every Kid in a Park program!  When we visit the National Parks in Utah, it is so cool to see so many people from all over the world visiting!  I love that they too recognize it’s unique beauty!

Family Ski Vacations are quickly becoming one of our favorite family vacations!  There is nothing like hitting the slopes, and cozying up together as a family!  This the second year in a row we headed off the unbeaten path to the small ski town of Steamboat Springs, Colorado!  It is the cutest little town nestled 7,000 feet up in the Colorado Rockies, and it is one of the largest ski mountains in North America!   It really is the perfect Family Ski town!

Family Staycations with the Kids

My family just got back from a mini staycation in Heber Valley, Utah.  We had such good time!  We decided to celebrate Valentine’s Day as a family, and what better way to show our love for each other, then to spend some quality time together!  We are lucky, because living in Utah, we are a stones throw from some of the most beautiful and amazing places!  It is just a short drive to an adventure in Heber Valley, and while we only went overnight, it was the perfect way to celebrate together!  One of my love languages is quality time, so mini-vacations are a perfect way for me to get that quality time I need with the ones I love!
