Bear Lake in July | An Itinerary

Bear Lake in July | An Itinerary

With summer now revving into full gear, July is a great time to visit Bear Lake with a group of friends, your partner, or the entire family. The area has so many exciting things to experience that choosing what to do and when to do it can be challenging. That’s why we created this two-day mid-July itinerary so you can spend less time planning and more time having a Bear Lake blast.

Day 1
Cruise into Bear Lake at 11:00 am and start your trip the right way at Ephraim’s. Specializing in American and comfort food, you’ll have no shortage of savory choices. Enjoy the beautiful lake view over a flavorful burger and shake. The fish & chips is another wonderful option.

1 pm
With a full stomach and wide smile, head over to Renegade Raceway for a favorite summer pastime — go-karts!

2 pm
Time for another summer pastime. Make your way to Heritage Park and Garden City Pond and throw your line in the water for some tranquil July fishing.

3 pm
Keep the fun going with a geocaching treasure hunt! Work together as a team using a smartphone app or GPS to navigate your way to a cache. This is a great way to build further camaraderie among your group.

5 pm
By now, you’ve surely worked up an appetite. Cafe Sabor stands ready to cook up a well-deserved Mexican food dinner as you start to wind your day down.

7 pm
After you’ve had your fill at Sabor, pop into the Bear Lake Candy Company for candy dessert. Might as well stock up while you’re there so you can appease that sweet tooth as the need arises

7:30 pm
With your to-go sweets secured, it’s time to check into Sun Outdoors Garden City, your sweet digs for the weekend.

8 pm
As your accommodations are right on the beach, use this time for a lovely beach stroll to end an unforgettable Bear Lake day before returning to the resort to relax and rest up. 

Day 2

7 am
Rise and shine! Take some time to explore the resort before getting ready for an exhilarating day.

9 am
Hit the Moose Buns drive-through for coffee or a smoothie and breakfast burritos.

10 am
Duck into Zuma Printz to design your own tee or hoodie and watch while they bring it to life in-store.

11 am
Time for fun in the sun at Bridgerland Adventure Park. Ride the 350-foot slide, maneuver through rope courses, feel like you’re flying on the zip lines, play frisbee golf, and more.

12:20 pm
Lunchtime. As luck would have it, Bridgerland has a restaurant with tasty hot dogs, hamburgers, and other options.

2:30 pm
Bear Lake is famed for its raspberry shakes. You’ll find these and more with a quick trip to the Bear Cave.

3:00 pm
Experience the purity and peace of the lake by taking a leisurely stroll on the bike path.

5:30 pm
Time really does fly when you’re having too much Bear Lake fun. Have your final dinner at LaBeau’s Drive Inn. You really can’t miss with anything on the menu.

7 pm
Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end, so it’s time to head home, but don’t worry — we’re counting the days until we see you again!
