We had a great time in the Sun Valley area of Idaho this weekend. Its a three hour drive through the desert to different kind of place. Sun Valley is a ski town that is full of beautiful vacation homes and condos. It also has great scenery and great outdoor activities to offer. We stayed in Ketchum at a reasonable hotel, and visited some great local eateries and shops.
And the list of some of the local spots we visited.The Cellar Pub; Great place to meet and mingle, we had dinner there and drinks.The Pioneer Saloon; Lots of history in this establishment, had a great time looking at all the antiques they have collected over the years.. They are always packed with people waiting for dinner or having an after dinner drink.The Kneadery; here we had a yummy breakfast, I had the Huevos Rancheros... delicious. Cabin style interior with a close to home cooked meal.CIRO (Restaurant and Wine Market); Fantastic Oven fired pizzas and local fare specials. Wine list is decent, but also spendy. Great modern rustic atmosphere and excellent house made ice cream for dessert. Ketchum Kitchens; Amazingly jam-packed kitchen store, where you could of course find just about anything. We found some great plastic stemless wine glasses for our trips to Shakespeare. Belissimo; Beautiful store full of housewares. Contains all things to dress your home from the bathroom to the kitchen. Also had a great selection of cards and gifts. Java in Hailey; Nice to see a familiar coffee house. They have an amazing drink called "bowl of soul". If you are ever in Idaho you should try it out.
