Park City, Utah
Discover the Rocky Mountains like never before in Park City
There’s no way you won’t enjoy an awesome getaway in Park City, Utah, as the snow-capped mountains give way to the breathtaking beauty of wildflowers. I’m smitten with everything about Park City, and I’m sure you’ll be too!
Park City is a tourist hotspot, which is why it’s very well connected to the rest of the U.S. The city is a mere 35 minutes from Salt Lake International Airport and once you’ve arrived, getting around is just as easy. You can rent a bike, book an uber or better yet, just navigate the city on foot.
What to Do
Park City is well known for its three world-class ski resorts: Deer Valley, Park City Mountain Resort and The Canyons. Whatever the season, summer through winter, the lengthy list of activities offered by these three resorts is bound to keep everyone happily entertained.
All three resorts offer skiing, snowboarding, and other fabulous winter activities. You can also try snowshoeing – this is a great way to take in the splendid views of the Rocky Mountains. If you’re more into cross country skiing, Park City offers miles of groomed trails for you to enjoy the spectacular Rocky Mountains. And, of course, there’s snowmobiling.
The snow may be gone by summer, but the excitement still remains. You can pick and choose from a myriad of summer sports and activities: golfing, mountain biking, hot-air balloon, riding, hiking, fly fishing, visiting Olympic venues, or just enjoying nature.
