Meet Victoria, I Heart Salt Lake Contributor



I’m Victoria, a.k.a. obSEUSSed.  I have 3 children and love books and family friendly places, which Salt Lake is full of. I’ve lived in Salt Lake for 14 years. I came here from Wyoming to attend the U of U and plan to stay forever. V fall 10

When visitors come to my house, here are my “Best Of Salt Lake” recommendations:

Our favorite local family restaurant is Cowboy Grub off of Foothill. My kids won’t get off the electric horses and I can’t get enough of their pot roast sandwich.

My favorite local fast food restaurant lately has been Mo Bettah Steaks, their Hawaiian pork and huge shaved ice treats pull me in every time I need to stop by Sam’s Club. It is much better than a Sam’s Club pizza slice any day.OCT 11 Blog7

I love stopping by thrift stores and vintage consignment shops like Emilie Jayne, Now and Again, Home Again and Abode.

We love checking out the parks around the valley and one of our favorites it the Veteran’s Memorial Park in West Jordan. The huge wooden fort is so unique, the kids spend hours there.

Because I’m obSEUSSed, you’ll often find me at bookstores, one of the best is Central Book Exchange on 2017 South 1100 East. I have a big credit to use from trading in my books. I also love grabbing books at D.I., Savers and Thrift Town. I’ll be sharing some of my favorite locally owned bookstores soon on IHSL.

I Heart exploring Salt Lake.
