In 2015 my family decided to have our family reunion at Bear Lake in Utah.  There were about 30 of us and all we wanted was to be right by the water! We booked out trip at the Ideal Beach Resort, right on the beach, and it was the perfect stay! They have condos, hotel, and motel rooms as well as one house, which is where we stayed. Below is the small walk we took from our front door to the beach. The resort also had an insane amount of amenities that kept us busy our entire stay! Just check out everything they have to offer here:



We also decided to hit up the amazing Minnetonka caves during our stay! My sweet husband is always worried about me and he refused to let me take either of our kids. He carried one on his front and one on his back the entire 400 steps once we were inside, not to mention all the steps just getting to the opening!  Chivalry is not dead, no matter how many times I begged to take one. <3


Garden City is the closest town to where we were staying. It’s small and quaint, exactly how I like them. We went into town to eat a few times and found the yummiest little restaurants and ice cream shops! The kids had a blast!


If you are looking for a place to stay in Utah for a family reunion, check out The Ideal Beach Resort. My advice would be to call them and request the house! It was perfect for our large family, had enough rooms, and was much nicer than the family size condos! I will post the sites for the Resort and Minnetonka Caves below!
