Visit Palm Springs Vacation Rental

We decided to escape to the desert for Fall Break this year, and it was the perfect getaway!  The temperatures were in the 80’s and 90’s, the kids got to swim to their hearts content, and we got to explore a new city as a family!  Palm Springs is a bit of a hidden gem!  It was once considered a sleepy retiree town, it is now a retro-chic destination that is also very family friendly, not to mention the entire place is so photogenic and Instagrammable!  Seriously, beautiful mid-century architecture, amazing dining experiences, outdoor hiking, a national park, shopping, it really has it all!

Our fondest memories are almost always traced back to our family vacations, and our Palm Springs stay was another great trip for the books!  The Palm Springs area offers a variety of the best activities the desert has to offer!  Check out the full list of 6 things to do with kids in Palm Springs below!The Living Desert Zoo

Soldier Hollow Classic Sheepdog Championship

Soldier Hollow Classic Sheepdog Championship

If you are in Utah and are looking for something fun to do this Labor Day weekend, the Solider Hollow Classic Sheepdog Championship is a great option!

These world class sheepdog’s are highly impressive with their skills, and dedication!  It was our first time going to the event as a family, and we couldn’t believe they were able to control those sheep like that!

Soldier Hollow Classic Dog Splash

Another event my kids liked the best is the Splash Dogs!  We loved watching the dogs try to jump out the furthest into the water!  Even the little dogs were fun to watch!

Soldier Hollow Classic Sheepdog Championship

There was a lot to see including the Sheepdogs, Splash Dogs, Highland games, K9 Acrobatic Dog shows, Raptor bird shows, vendors, and food trucks!

Zermatt Resort Family Friendly Hotels Zermatt Resort Carousel

We made a little vacation of it, and stayed at the Zermatt Resort nearby!  It was our first time staying up at the Zermatt, and it won’t be our last!  It is in the beautiful mountains of Midway, Utah.  The kids loved the pool, the free carousel rides, and the little bakery was so cute and tasty!

We love that there are so many family friendly activities to do here in Utah!

Hope you are enjoyed a fun and safe Labor Day Weekend!

Steamboat Springs has become a very special place for our family.  We have loved our time there during ski season, so we decided to head back to this magical little town in the mountains for some fun during the off-ski season!

Steamboat Resort Mountain Biking

Steamboat Springs not only is beautiful with picturesque mountain views, but is also has so much to offer!  From winter sports to summer activities, Steamboat has it all!  It was our first time to Steamboat Springs in the warmer months, and it was so fun to see it in a new light!  Beautiful green trees everywhere, the green valleys, and the rivers flowing.  It is quite a place!  With so much to do in the off-ski season, we thought we would make a list of our favorites!
