I can’t say it enough, but sometimes I still am in awe of the beautiful state of Utah that we are lucky to call home! We are so lucky to have such gorgeous mountains and outdoor scenery just in our own backyard!
We love heading up to Park City for a little staycation getaway, especially in the winter! Whenever we can ski as a family, that is always a plus for me! You see, back in the day I worked at Deer Valley Resort teaching little kids ski lessons. I dreamed of the day when I could take my own little family on ski vacations and cozy up for a winter stay! I love when things come full circle, don’t you?!
For us, summertime and Mountains go hand in hand! We feel so blessed and lucky to live in Utah where we have some of the most gorgeous Mountains in our own backyard! Solitude Mountain Resort is one of our favorites to hit in the Summer because there is something for the whole family!
The second we hit the canyon, the weigh of the world seems to fall off our shoulders, and we breathe in that mountain air and our worries seem to disappear! There is something about those magical mountains!
When the Valley gets in the upper 90’s and even 100 degrees, we like to escape to the Mountains for a little relief from the heat and every day life. We headed up to a family favorite spot up at Solitude! We love to head up there summer or winter time, and especially during the Wildflower Festival! Such a beautiful time to take in the gorgeous backdrop of the picturesque Utah mountains blanketed in beautiful wildflowers. It’s such a great time of year to be out on the Mountain!
Read on for a little Family friendly guide to Summer on the Mountain at Solitude! A little something for everyone!
For our big summer vacation this year, we decided to head back to Maine. Since we fly into Boston, we thought why not spend a few days in Boston again! It is such a fun city to explore. Since we did the freedom trail last time, we decided we wanted to explore a few spots we missed.
It was easiest to hop on and hop off the Old Town Trolley tours of Boston by Historic Tours of America. We have gone on several of their tours around the country, and we really have enjoyed them! You can get a day ticket and the running trolleys will pick and drop you off at all the major stops in the city all day long, and they come every 15 minutes. With limited time in the city, I’d highly suggest it! Especially with kids who can get tired out from all the walking.
We stopped off at the USS Constitution Museum. The kids loved exploring the old ship, and seeing all the old canons, and sleeping quarters of the soldiers. I just love how interested they are in history!
