And happy children make happy parents. When the kiddos are busy and entertained, be sure to make a reservation for a romantic meal or fun-filled evening at one of Sun Valley’s fabulous restaurants. Enjoy a cocktail at the Ram Lounge at the Inn or the Duchin Lounge at the Lodge and then tuck into locally-sourced, seasonal and delicious fare at the Ram, Gretchen’s, Bald Mountain Pizza and Pasta, the Konditorei or Trail Creek Cabin. All are different, all are delicious! Stroll hand-in-hand through the Village Light Display, shop or window shop, delighting in the Resort’s whimsical holiday windows. It is truly a magical time of year in Sun Valley.

Happy New Year!
