Your personal guide to southern Utah is HERE! <3 We’re letting you know the best places to stay, where to find the best grub, what to pack, what activities to do, and all the other goods you need to know!  ENJOY GUYS! xx

Stay: Our favorite places to stay are Entrada, Inn on the Cliff, Sports Village, or Las Palmas! Entrada is our favorite, but it’s also the priciest! We recommend Entrada for a special occasion or romantic getaway! For something family & budget friendly we recommend Sports Village or Las Palmas!  

Eat: There’s definitely more chains in this area than most, but a few of the locally owned spots are beyond drool worthy! Our favorites are Anasazi Grill, the restaurant at The Inn on the Cliff, Pizza + Pasta Factory, Poncho Leftys, Freddy’s, Croshaw Pies, & 25 Main!

Pack: Light, airy, & comfy clothing is the only way to go in Southern Utah! It’s so dang hot, you have to dress accordingly! I did some shopping before we left at Vici Collection and got everything for my trip from clothes to accessories from their store! Everything was under $50.00, and I used my discount code BRIT20 to get 20% off my entire purchase! Vici had some super cute graphic tees and light weight tee shirts, tons of beautiful airy dresses, swim cover ups, rompers, denim shorts, sandals, the whole she-bang! 10/10 would recommend checking Vici Collection out before you head of town/need a new outfit for something! <3 We also recommend packing sunscreen, a swimsuit, & some hiking clothes & shoes! 

Play: Southern Utah Is jam packed with activities, but you have to get outdoors! Our favorite things to do are hike at Zions, (angels landing is our favorite hike) visit Dixie rock, (get to the beautiful red rock with no hiking at all) golf, (our favorite courses are Coral Canyon, Entrada, and Sandhallow) visit Pine Valley, Snow Canyon state park, visit Towne Square Park, (splash pad & carousel for kids) swim/boat, (local pool or Sandhallow) Helicopter rides over Zion, Veyo pool, & play pickle ball or tennis! (There are courts everywhere!)

Need to know(s): If you stay at any of the resorts listed above, you’ll be about an hour and a half out of Las Vegas! If you want to shop, go straight to Vegas! Southern Utah has horrible shopping.  

Usually Southern Utah is fairly warm in the winter, but it’s been getting snow the last few years! If you want to hit the outdoor stuff, go before December!  

There’s a billion more things to do here (especially when it comes to hiking) but in this post we wanted to give you everything. Not just the hikes! However, if you’re wanting a full blown hiking experience, we recommend staying in Zion and looking up some of the hikes to see what’s best for you/your family! 

If you guys have any questions about vacationing in Southern Utah, shoot us an email! Or if you have something to add to this list that you love, leave a comment below! We’d love to add to this list! <3 

We hope you all enjoyed this post! Thanks for the love guys! xx

Summer is calling, and so are the mountains! The older I get, the more I fall in love with Utah. It's truly beautiful here!  

We may not have palm trees, fresh fruit, or beaches, but our mountains are truly amazing. From Zions red rock, to the pines up at Sundance, you can't beat our views. (If you haven't been to Utah, get your a$$ up here this summer! I promise you won't regret it!) 

When summer hits my wardrobe shifts shades. My winter blacks turn to summer whites! This dress is a new addition this year and I had to have it!!!! It's as elegant as a wedding dress, yet simple enough to wear out at night. I got it online from Lulus and am loving their summer selects right now! (Especially their white dress shop!) 

Also, Lulus now carries Free People! (along with a handful of my favorite brands)  10/10 would recommend checking them out! xx

Had to keep my hair looking shiny & bright on vacation, so I packed my Oribe Silverati shampoo + conditioner.

Mersea bubble bath, body wash, and lotion. My favorite!

We checked into Entrada last Friday to a BEAUTIFUL, modern suite! (We were dying!.. & running around like kids on Christmas!) Everything was perfection! The bedroom was romantic, the living room had a fireplace, the tub had jets, the blinds were remote controlled, the bed was comfier than a cloud, the kitchen was fully loaded, there was a garage for our car, a patio out of the back door, a washer + dryer in the closet, two tvs in the bedroom + living room, the ceiling had windows bringing in the most beautiful light all day long, and the backyard not only had a fire pit, BUT A VIEW! If you looked on our Instagram story last weekend, you would have witnessed this all!

After settling in, we were famished and decided to try out the Grille at Entrada for dinner. Fine dining with an even fine-er view! (Insert heart eyes here) The Grille has windows lining the back wall, and we got lost in the red rock view while digging into our Steak & Lobster feast! (FYI it tasted five billion times better than it looks! And we are hard to please so that's sayin somthin!)

The following two days of our stay, we lost track of time! We walked the beautiful grounds of the resort, snagged cinnamon rolls for breakfast, (complimentary from the lobby) hung out at the ponds and fed the ducks, lounged at the pool, (see pics of the outdoor pool on THIS blog post) took advantage of the gym on site, and got some golf in! (Golf basically took up the time we were going to spend at the spa!.... Sorry we didn't squeeze it in for you guys to see! It's absolutely stunning!)

Let's talk golf for a minute! We both LOVE golf! One of us sucks, and one of us is a pro. (Bet ya can't tell which one HAHAA!) Jokes, jokes.

The Johnny Miller golf course (located at the resort) is our favorite in Utah. Golfing here is an experience. (Starting with an employee dropping a cart off at your front door.) You can't find a view better than hole #16 anywhere! (We're not lying, go look at the pictures again!) To play here, you either have to be staying at the Inn, or be a member of the country club. (Or live here, which you can do!)

 

The first 9 holes are lined with a never ending pond/river/waterfall contraption. And ducks. And bunnies. And cacti + blooms. It's something out of a dream! When you get to the last few holes, you'll find yourself in a field of black lava. Extremely hard holes, but extremely fun game! These holes have the best view at the resort, giving you front row seats to the red rock show!

 

If golfing, swimming, and spa-ing isn't your thing, Entrada is located just minutes away from Tuacahn where you can catch a play or a concert! OR you could take a hike in Snow Canyon National park just up the road, or head to Zion! If you're into fitness, you could head to the tennis & pickle ball courts, the volley ball court, or shoot some hoops! You could also schedule a class with a fitness instructor! (They have anti gravity work out equipment and we're BUMMED we didn't have time to try a class out!)

 

If you've fallen head over heels for Entrada like we have, you should be thrilled to hear they do weddings, events, meetings, and more! (I don't know what category "Disney" falls under, but the film "High School Musical 2" was filmed here!)

 

To finish this post off strong, Entrada & I have teamed up to give one lucky winner a 3 day, 2 night stay at this beautiful resort! Check out our Instagram (@HappilyEverAllen) for entry details! <3

 

We hope ALL of you have the opportunity to visit The Inn at Entrada this summer! We promise it will not disappoint! Thanks for stopping by guys! We love you! xx
