I remember the time when Summer vacations were only spent at the beach, or an occasional side trip to a local amusement park. It was easy to keep kids happy and content with minimal effort. Now that the boys are older, it isn’t as easy to keep them entertained and involved in family vacation. So my husband and I decided to look into a new place to visit for vacation. Enter Heber Valley Utah.
We are generally outdoor people, but as I said earlier, it is generally confined to the beach area. So when we had the opportunity to look into Heber Valley Utah, we were pleasantly surprised at the amount of activities it had to offer. A friend of mine is really into camping with her family. I prefer to do my camping in a cabin, which is why I found Heber Valley Utah so interesting.
About Heber Valley:
Located in northern Utah, less than 50 minutes from Salt Lake City & 15 minutes from Park City, Heber Valley is a destination that every family member can find something that they enjoy. My family enjoys outdoor vacations, a lot. My husband is an avid fisherman, and will get as much fishing in as he can during the season. It really is one of the few things that he does for himself.
Heber Valley Utah offers some of the BEST fishing around. I know that my husband would be missing for hours, spending all his time fishing. I mean, really, with views like this, who could blame him? I fish as well, but I think I would spend more of my time sitting on a rock and soaking up the sun. How about you?
It may be really hard to believe, but this lady absolutely loves spending time in the outdoors. I grew up with my cousin chasing bugs, riding ATV’s, and swimming. Our mountain cabin at home stoked my love of the outdoors and hiking and all things nature. I remember all the evenings of riding around spotting deer or the occasional bear. Heber Valley Utah may not have deer spotting excursions but it offers so much more! This makes Heber Valley Utah the perfect family destination because there are activities for kids of all ages.
And if fishing or hiking isn’t your thing, don’t worry. Heber Valley has over 24 miles of combined golf courses for you to spend your time conquering. While all I would do is make divots(so I will spare the gorgeous golf courses the torture), I know my husband and oldest son would spend time enjoying the challenges of 5 public golf courses. It is so hard to imagine that there are 5 beautiful courses nestled in a mountainous valley.
Still not sure if Heber Valley is the right place for your next family destination? Here are a few other facts about Heber Valley that you should consider:
*Heber Valley is a 4 season destination. Spring, Summer, Winter, Fall, Heber Valley has everything from hiking, to swimming, even snowmobiling. If you can’t find something to do here, then maybe you can just curl up with a good book. The scenery is definitely conducive to reading and relaxing.
*There are some great places for sleeping! These cozy cabin areas are definitely more my style, although I can camp outside as well as any of those hardcore campers. But having a roof and no bugs is a pretty great things as well.
*If you love horseback riding like me, then Heber Valley has you covered as well. I know what I would be doing while my husband is doing all of his fishing. Maybe he would have to come search for me! Horseback riding is one of those luxuries I can’t really do back home. There aren’t too many stables around, and we definitely do not have the beautiful scenery to explore.
Here is a really fun fact: Heber Valley is home to the world’s foremost sheepdog competition at the Soldier Hollow Sheepdog Classic, bringing in competitors from as far away as South Africa and Brazil. Now that sounds like it would be an amazing event to attend. Cute doggies everywhere!
So if you are looking for the vacation that everyone will be contented and happy, then Heber Valley should be at the top of your list. Your trip will be unforgettable, thanks to Heber Valley Utah!
