Popsicle Blog is Hitting the Road!

popsicle-blog-road-tripwe are so excited!!!  Popsicle Blog is packing up the kids, the trailer and computer…and taking a two week road trip from sunny Southern California all the way to one of our country’s favorite National Parks, Yellowstone, and back down the California coast. that’s a lot of miles, and we will be making lots of stops along the way to visit places we’ve never been. we haven’t yet planned the entire trip, but are hoping to make stops in historic places such as Las Vegas, Zion National Park, Bryce’s Canyon, the Great Salt Lake, a horse ranch in Idaho, Yellowstone, San Francisco and Santa Cruz. we want to experience the natural beauty of our great Earth and see some natural wonders, but are also looking to enjoy some awesome museums and tourist attractions, find great places to eat and stay at a few family-friendly resort hotels as we don’t want to be camping the entire trip. this is a trip of a lifetime, one where we hope to just enjoy life, build family bonds and experience new things about the states we will be traveling through as we make our way to our destination.

we will be sharing our adventures on the road with all of you Popsicle Blog readers. since i often get emails and requests, asking the best places and things to do with families, i hope that sharing our adventure as we travel will give you guys some ideas of your own. i would love for you to follow along in Instagram, Twitter and Facebook with our designated hashtag #popsicleadventures. beautiful photography is my passion and i am looking forward to sharing pictures of our adventure on my Instagram feed, i am sure there are going to be some spectacular sights at the National parks we visit.

i need your help! do you know any great places we must visit along the way? please leave any suggestions in the comments below. tell me the best restaurants, museums, sites and parks in route to Yellowstone. we want this is a road trip our kids will never forget!

  1. We seen you tonight at Article Circle in Blackfoot, ID. If you need any suggestion on what to do between here and Yellowstone, Jackson Hole, and SLC, email us. We take road trips, in our fifth wheel, a lot! We can direct you to awesome places!


    • I would love some tips! We are here in Yellowstone now, and will be coming back through Idaho in the next few days! Where should we go!

  2. The Exploratorium in SF is SO fun! Right on the Embarcadero waterfront, it’s jam packed with hands on science activities for kids and adults alike.

  3. Have fun! You’ll be missed at home. XOX

  4. You’re sure to have a good time – stay safe and enjoy yourselves. Look forward to hearing all about this trip.

  5. Don’t forget the Grand Tetons while you’re up by Yellowstone. And don’t be afraid to go to the sites less traveled at the parks…

  6. If you stop/drive through Monterey – look up Compagno’s sandwich shop. Amazing food and tons of novelty soda bottles!!

  7. We’ve gone to the Ostrich Farm near Solvang. The entrance fee is pretty cheap, I think $2 a person. It’s definitely novel. However, I must warn you, the ostriches are pretty aggressive when you feed them. It kind of reminds me of the velociraptors in Jurassic Park.

    Sounds like a fantastic trip. Have fun!

  8. Sweet tooth fairy. There’s a big water park right off the 15 at the point of the Mtn that looks amazing!
    Have so much fun! Be safe.

  9. Def Zion and or Bryce. Moab, arches they are all amazing and gorgeous. There are four wheelers out there and family resorts. St George also has fun things and the outdoor amphitheater tuacahn is cool!

    Have fun and safe travels on your trip!! I definitely would suggest the. Monterey Bay Aquarium if you get the chance to swing by there. If you do the 17 mile drive through Monetrey/Carmel you can stop and have lunch at the Pebble beach golf course they will validate your “entrance fee” and deducte the $10 or so dollars off of your bill, plus you get to hang out and see such an amazing view! Either way have an awesome time and can’t wait to see and read your vacay through your eyes 😀

    Yosemite, Muir Woods, San Francisco, San Simeon, Monterey, Pfeiffer Beach, Big Sur, Solvang… So many options! Have a wonderful trip making memories with your beautiful boys.

  13. Excited for your trip, I hope you all have the best time!
