Garden City, Utah
This small city has a cohesive theme and it is bear. Bear Lake, a 20-mile lake which draws crowds throughout the warm months for all the recreational opportunities it offers, is nearby and there is beach access in town. There are resorts and campgrounds along its length and just gazing at it is a treat. It is called the Caribbean of the Rockies for its prismatic color which contrasts with the color on the banks, especially in the autumn.
There are also many bear carvings on tree stumps and they are in general very well-executed, using the character of the tree trunks for inspiration, following the natural twists of the wood. The word bear appears in names of businesses, especially along the main street, called Bear Lake Boulevard.
Another emphasis is raspberries, in their season. Preserves are sold here and there, and raspberry shakes are a local specialty. One family restaurant offers a raspberry sorbet palate refresher before dinner and raspberry jam with breakfast. A craft store sells all manner of raspberry-derived condiments.
The city offers quite a few eateries and is quite pleasant for a tourist to visit, with its small homes, and picturesque hillsides with large beautiful homes.
You can camp or set up your RV at the Bear Valley/Garden City KOA or Traveland RV Park which are very close to town, or travel a bit south on the lake edge to a couple more RV parks. Garden City and its tourist accommodations are on the west side of the lake. On the south and east side of the lake is an array of state parks where you can also camp.
