Families that play together, stay together.

One weekend in the Fall of 2010 we were trying to find an easy hike for our family. Heading out with young kids, we wanted to find something family friendly. We had a hard time finding the kind of information that we were looking for on the Internet. We wanted an honest review, good directions, and any tips that might help us. My husband was becoming quite frustrated and said that he wished someone would write a blog where we could go to find fun family adventures. Well, we decided that someone would be us!
We’ve been exploring Utah for the past 45 years and documenting our adventures for over 15 years. We began as Utah Valley Family Adventures and we shared about our adventures to museums, parks, and hikes. After a few years we realized that we weren’t just writing about Utah Valley, we were writing about everything in Utah. So we changed our name and started sharing even more information about Utah, it’s history and environment.
We take the guesswork out of exploring Utah by sharing where to go, what to take, and what to expect so that you can be well-informed and prepared as you adventure. We have 3 boys ages 10-16 so we know our tips are relevant for toddlers to teens! We give our honest reviews about parks hikes, museums, unique businesses, holiday and seasonal events, and other family friendly activities that will be a hit for families of all ages. Our goals it to help families learn to love adventures and trying new things together!
Our website has blessed our family so much because we have built strong relationships as we have traveled throughout the state of Utah. We have also found many amazing places in Utah that we had never heard of before we started searching. We share these posts to encourage your family to spend time together, too. We truly believe in the old adage that says, “Families that play together, stay together.”


We are so grateful for all the people who have given us ideas for adventures in Utah, so if you know of something we need to try, please let us know (info@utahsadventurefamily.com)
