Discover the 3-Day Weekend: Davis Style

by discoverdavis

Three days out of the office is great! However, it doesn’t always allow for a plane ride-worthy destination. When it’s crunch time and you’ve got to plan the weekend, there’s nothing easier and more time effective than a stay-cation. Here in Davis, 72 hours simply isn’t enough. LET’S GO!

Get away for the weekend and enjoy the crisp mountain air while still having civilization minutes away. Stay at Sun Outdoors in North Salt Lake and book a wood chalet for you and your party and enjoy the cabin vibes! The chalets are equipped with hot showers, stove tops, WiFi, cable TV and a clubhouse with billiards.

If you want to rest your head somewhere a little more urbane, check out the Hyatt Place right smack in the middle of Station Park. Perfect for travelers who want to be at the center of everything.


Outdoor Adventures

For the winter wanderer, snowshoeing is a great outdoor experience to take in the cool, fresh air and live out the winter wonderland fantasy. You can rent snowshoes from the Bountiful Ski n’ See or REI in Salt Lake City, just a short drive from Davis County! Take to the trails and shuffle along the Wasatch Front. Check out Centerville Canyon via Deuel Creek Trail or the Bonneville Shoreline Trail.

For those who love to rip and shred down the mountain, we are a stone’s throw away from not one, but nine different mountains! Choose one for yourself.

If you’d rather stay warm and wear the hat of History Buff, Hill Aerospace Museum is a cultural and insightful venture. Learn of Utah’s Air Force roots and the role these planes had during WWII.

The fun’s just getting started! Keep up the adrenaline at Boondocks, Rush Funplex or Seaquest, where the fun is just waiting to be had. Want to experience more of winter indoors? We suggest the ice rink at South Davis Rec Center. Show off those triple axels!

Indoor Recreation

Get back out to nature at Antelope Island. There is so much to see and do even in the winter months. Go bird-watching, spot some bison, bike the snowy trails or camp out to take in the starry night sky.

Explore Davis terrain by snowmobiling through breathtaking trails and scenic mountain vistas. You can rent snowmobiles through TRAX PowerSports or Club Powersports.

 *Please maintain awareness of avalanche danger after freshly fallen snow. 

Stay city-side by bundling up and lacing up for a chilly skate at the Bountiful Ice Rink at the Bountiful Town Square!

Fuel the Fun

After all the excitement, you’re sure to work up an appetite. You won’t go hungry with all the county has to offer! Burgers, pizza, pasta and everything in between.

Station Park offers Davis staples like Twigs Bisto, Vessel Kitchen, Ramen Haus and more.
