Garden City Things to Do

  • Boating

    This is why you come to Bear Lake. To get on the water. There are only a few launch options. Bear Lake State Park, north of town. This has a pier, marina, but no rentals. Ideal Beach Resort and Blue Water Resort south of town have rentals, but no pier. Launch is by tractor. Sailing is popular, wakeboarding, skiing, personal watercraft, kayaks,...

  • beach

    There are miles and miles and miles of beach at Bear Lake. If you aren't lucky enough to have access to the beach from your accomodations, then take to the public access beaches. In Garden City a few blocks south of the Logan Canyon road junction you will be able to drive your car down the road out onto the beach. Set up your chairs, your canopy,...

  • golfing

    Though it isn't championship, the Bear Lake 9-hole golf course will let you swing some clubs. Described by family members as "fun", it has nice views of the lake and a relaxed atmosphere.

  • Raspberry shakes are a must

    Well, you can eat at any of the various little places in town. We tend to always end up here. I can't tell you why, I think because the lines are always long we figure everyone else must know something. This is old time drive in, made to order and always good. Just don't forget the raspberry shakes made from local produce. Buy the jam, jelly or...

    In the year 2001 a local newspaper did a taste test of all the raspberry shakes that are offered in the many drive-in and sit-down restaurants in the area. I have to agree with their findings:#1 Best shake: Bear Lake Pizza. Has the most fruit.#2 Best shake: Quick 'n' Tasty Drive In. Has the thickest shakes.The best dinners to be had in Bear Lake...

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Every summer a different repertoire, but always in the best of fun. You can combine a theater visit with dinner.

    Don't be confused by a winter change to Logan,,,,they still play in Garden City in the summer.

    Always sold out

    Garden City is small. There is a city path running along side the road. This is the designated way to move around the city once you are settled in. Take a walk, take a bike, pull out the stroller, but take it slow and enjoy the day.

    The preferred way to travel Another alternative.  I think this was homegrown

  • goodies

    The best homemade fudge, ummmm! And homemade bread, you just have to buy the raspberry jam to put on it! And then before you go, get one of the chocolate covered marshmallows to eat while you are walking away. Oh they are mouthwatering good.

    I put it under local craft, but it is more than that. Do you want to decorate your home or cabin? Then come here for all the little things that will turn your house into your own expression of home.

Garden City Off The Beaten Path

  • Montpelier National Trails Center

    I finally made it in before they closed up. It is run by volunteers who tend to pack up and leave if things are slow. I'm glad we had our short visit . It is a very worthwhile exhibit of California/Oregon/westward trail information and re-creation. Montpelier was an important stopping place along the way. Take the tour. This takes you along as if...

  • Paris Tabernacle

    North of Bear Lake, is the town of Paris Idaho. Here Mormon pioneers built a meeting house. You can tour the building with a guide during summer. It is an interesting architecture and beautifully well kept. It is still used by the congregations in the area... On the fourth of July they have a celebration.

    Favorite thing: have a raspberry shake, of course! The locally grown raspberries are the world's tastiest! The first weekend in August is Raspberry Days, and the town has a parade, craft and talent shows, and rodeos. There are fireworks and lighted boat parades on the lake. Don't miss it!

    Fondest memory: I love to go boating on the lake, hike in the mountains surrounding the area and go horseback riding through the canyons.
