Family Vacation Series: Bear Lake

If you are wanting a vacation with white sandy beaches and clear blue/green water, you don’t have to travel out of Utah! Bear Lake has all of this and more! It is one of my all-time favorite vacation spots!

With campsites on the beach, or hotels nearby, there are many options for lodging. (I personally love the camping aspect of Bear Lake, especially on the beach!) View the map of Bear Lake to plan what you want to do, then where you want to stay according to your activities.

There are many things to do at Bear Lake, depending on the time of year you go. My favorite time to go is summertime, when you can play on the beach and play in the water. There are many vendors that will rent out boats, jet skis, etc.  Cave exploration and bicycling are also popular activities. View the map of Bear Lake to plan what you want to do, then where you want to stay according to your activities.

Bear Lake always has a full event calendar year-round. Here are some of their more popular events:

Make sure that while you are there, you stop at the Hometown Drive-In in Garden City for a raspberry shake!

From Salt Lake City, Bear Lake is about a 2 1/2 hour drive. From Salt Lake City, take I-15 north until you reach the signs towards Logan. Follow the signs to Logan, then proceed towards Garden City. Garden City is located on the shores of Bear Lake.

    Our family loves Bear Lake! One of the best things about it is the PATH that goes all around the little city. Your whole family can bike and run together for a long time. Thanks for the post.

    It gets worse when these three are combined together so it
    is best to change your lifestyle, quit the habit and lose some weight.
    Intuitively we all know what snoring is or at least
    what it sounds like. Poor posture couldresult in tension headache symptoms as this
    leads to back and neck pains, which in turn lead to unbearable headaches.

    You really make it appear really easy along with your presentation however I find this topic to be really something that I believe I would by no means understand.
    It kind of feels too complicated and very large for me. I am having a look
    ahead to your subsequent submit, I’ll try to get the dangle of it!
