Sun Valley Guide
Posted on 02 November 2017
Call us biased, but we think we have scored one of the most beautiful places to call home to Vie Active HQ, here is Sun Valley, Idaho. Sun Valley’s snow, sun, and the multitude of outdoor activities draw attraction to much like-minded physically fit residents. So while we may be known for the high season filled with tourists who flock from afar to enjoy our snow and skiing in the winter and sun-filled adventures in the summer, the local’s life is 365 days a year of heaven. Here’s an insider’s guide to learn where the locals go to for the best exercise excursions, food, shopping, and fun.
The fall is a great time of year for morning runs, as the temps cool and the colors change. Proctor mountain is an excellent hike or runs to go on while the birds are chirping and the sun is rising. Proctor looks over the valley and is a good length. Click here to find out more for a few running tips. I live in my Sydney Top, Brianna Bra, and Rockell Leggings. Since it’s super chilly in the fall mornings, I always bring an extra merino layering piece to throw on top.
After a morning run, a quick stop at Glow Live Food Cafe to grab a nourishing, yummy breakfast is #1 on my list. I love the Sunrise Smoothie and the Avocado Toast. I might grab a juice as well to drink later in the day. You can find their full menu here.
If I am feeling motivated, I try to squeeze in a lunchtime yoga class at Gather to meet some of my friends for a midday #yogadate. I love the heated classes to get an extra sweat in and relax my muscles at the same time.
For lunch, I try to find quick options that are healthy and seasonal as well. The chicken posole soup at Rasberry’s is one of my all-time favorites. You really cannot go wrong with of their signature Tex Mex options that are wholesome, flavorful and don’t leave me in a food coma.
A favorite local’s dinner spot is Asian inspired, Rickshaw. This small spot has an assortment of ethnic foods including pho, noodle bowls, bok choy, and more. My personal fave is the Chang Mai Noodles and the Papaya salad. Thankfully the dress code in Sun Valley is always super casual. My fave dinner outfit is the Tina Tank, Debra Top, and Lili Leggings. I can throw a cute sweater and boots on and the outfit has gone straight from work out to going out.
Like many babes, we love, yummy food, exercise, and chatting with friends makes a perfect day. What do you love to do on the weekends? Post a pic on Instagram using #beflawsome #vieactive to get featured on our platforms!
