Things to Do in Heber Valley Utah for Active Families

1 Comment

If you are going to visit Utah, you can’t miss Heber Valley!  While it’s close to Park City, Utah, so many people don’t know anything about it.  Heber Valley is the perfect destination for active families and people who love to be outdoors.  That is why we were so excited to take 3 days and see all that Heber Valley had to offer.  It was so easy to get our family unplugged for three days as the valley offers some serious fun!

My husband and I decided years ago that we while we were raising kids, we wanted to spend our money on experiences rather than things.  A study from Cornell University showed happiness from possessions faded quickly, while joy from experiences actually increases, even the further away you get from the event. (article).  Not only that, talking about the experiences makes you even MORE happy! (article)  These experiences at Heber Valley are definitely worth the money!

FABULOUS!  Am I right?  We love Heber Valley and can’t wait to go back. I hope that you will come visit with your family as well!

This trip was organized by the Heber Valley Chamber of Commerce.  Our excursions were provided free of charge, but we definitely want to go back and do it all over again.  Share your outdoor adventures with the hashtag #kidsunplugged, and if you come to Heber, we want to see that too with #hebervalley or #heberunplugged

This is an AWESOME list. I have a young family, and we live in Salt Lake Valley. Once we went and stayed at Zermatt overnight and had the best time. The next time we go up, we will for sure do some of the activities on this list.
