There is nothing that I love more than spending time with my family, specially when we can go out and see the beauty in this world. We had such a good time together in our small vacation of fours days to Idaho. The first two days we stayed in Pocatello, which is just 30 minutes away from the amazing Lava Hot Springs.
Although we tried to stay within Lava Hot Springs, as a small city they don’t have many great options when it comes to accommodations. The old big houses, turned into hotels, have overpriced rooms and most of them have no good amenities such as breakfast inclusion, pool , safe or cribs when you’re traveling with kids.
So we opted for Pocatello, which is not either a big city, but it has everything you need as if it was. Kohl’s, Target, Cafe Rio, Ulta, Walmart, etc and a vast options of hotels such as Red Lion, Hampton, Holiday Inn, Best Western, Ramada and La Quinta are just a few.
I confess I am very skeptical about trying new restaurants but, a trip without the risks of a Gastronomic Tourism is not a trip. We went out for a small vacation of four days only to Idaho, and we stopped by my in-laws to see Twin Falls, which is, by the way,one of the most amazing places I’ve seen.
Of course, we had to try the Clover Leaf Creamery, highly recommended by my father-in-law, who took us there and I can say is a specialist in ice cream or he used to be before stopping ingesting sugar. Well, we weren’t disappointed.The place is amazing!
The vintage look will make you to want to come back but, it’s , of course, the ice cream that catches you up. Made with all natural ingredients you can trust that you will have the most delicious ice cream of your life. I had the coconut with chocolate. Believe me the chocolate is to die for.
Our first try at Thanksgiving Point didn’t go through as planned. The difference of temperature from West Jordan to Lehi was surprisingly huge and we could not enjoy the amazing Tulip Festival at that day. But, as good stubborn as we are we decided to face the weather and see the garden, anyways. We learned a lesson that day, do not mess up with Utah weather. After 10 minutes walk, we noticed that we are not as brave as we thought to endure the crazy, freezing, temperature of the mother nature in PMS. So, we made the smart decision to go back to our cozy and warm car and we gave up on the Asthon Garden.
The sad part is that I tried to have some support from Thanksgiving before entering to the Garden and see if they would allows us to use our tickets on another day, as it was too cold for for us and mostly was too cold for our 19 months baby. They denied us and the manager still added the best phrase to our crap day: ” You should see the forecast before buying”.
