Park City could certainly stake a rightful claim of being the “perfect mountain town.” Combining its silver mining town heritage, an artistic vibe and a deep appreciation for the outdoors, Park City strikes a balance between luxury and comfort, all the while showing a deep appreciation for athletics, arts and community. Whatever your daily activity may be, you'll work up an appetite for the diversity of fine restaurants that line Park City's Historic Main Street and beyond, and you'll want to wind down after a long day with the craft whiskeys and vodkas at the High West Distillery and Saloon.

. If skiing powder is your thing, Park City has you covered. With 426 downhill trails across 9,326 acres and numerous spots to Nordic ski, there are limitless possibilities. These numbers partially explain why the U.S. Ski and Snowboard team is headquartered in Park City. Other reasons include unbeatable proximity, quality of recreational opportunities and quality of life.

Park City Mountain is the largest ski resort in the United States, while Deer Valley is one of country's most popular luxury mountain resorts . The nearby Soldier Hollow Nordic Center , once featured in the Olympic games, offers great cross-country skiing.

Park City is a mountain oasis located just 40 minutes from the Salt Lake City International Airport. With the mammoth Park City Mountain Resort, famed Deer Valley, and the state of the art Woodward Park City just minutes apart, you'll find a playground of over 9,300 skiable acres. Revel in The Greatest Snow on Earth ® , see why the 2002 Winter Olympic Games were held on Park City Mountain's and Deer Valley's legendary slopes, and experience the innovative and adventurous environment of Woodward. You can even ride the runs where skiers found their Olympic glory.

Riding the mountains is far from the only thing to do in this exciting mountain town. Watch the latest independent flicks at the annual Sundance Film Festival , which is next scheduled for late January 2019. Park City's bustling nightlife is filled with concerts, jazz clubs, dancing, and film screenings, and you'll find over 100 restaurants and bars to choose from. Don't forget to stop at High West , the world's only ski-in distillery. And you don't even have to drive. The city's free bio-diesel bus system will get you where you need to go. Of course, the biggest whiskey aficionados will find a ride out to the Blue Star Ranch in the nearby town of Wanship, where the distillation magic occurs.

Park City Family Activities

Family vacations are a time for fun, food, excitement, relaxation, and making memories. Our mountain ranges tower over 9000 feet, which, by default, allows Park City to take family fun to new heights. With skiing, zip lines, alpine coaster, and dog sledding, you'll never run out of things to do, the dreaded "I'm bored!" statement is completely obliterated from your kids' vocabulary. Even the tiniest family members get their little senses and imaginations firing with winter camps or art classes at Kimball Art Center. There's a high probability parents will even let their inner child shine forth!

Are you looking for a great way to spend the day in nature, but not sure what do when unexpected weather arrives? We recently spent a day visiting the Swaner Preserve and EcoCenter, and it was the perfect fit for our nature obsessed family.

The Details

Where : Swaner Preserve and EcoCenter

When : Year-Round

Who : All Ages

You've just wrapped up a full day on the slopes with your kids. While you'd most likely want to soak your aching muscles in the hot tub, your kids are still FULL OF ENERGY!

Great news though - some of the best memories from a family ski vacation are made off the hill! That's right, with so much to do in Park City, there's no reason not to keep making memories after the lifts close.

To take the guesswork out of what you can do, we took our two preteen kids out for an evening of fun, and I can't wait to share one of the best après-ski activity you can find for older kids in Park City.


Where : Park City Escape Room , Downtown Park City (136 Heber Ave, right above Handle Restaurant)

When : Various start times are available throughout the day, reservations are strongly recommended

Who : There are 4 different rooms and each is available for a different suggested age group. We tried the travel room which is suggested for ages 9+

Cost : Prices range from $20-$37/person depending on the room challenge you choose

Time : 45-60 minutes


This was the kids pick, and I honestly had no idea what to expect.

If you're like me and have never been to an escape room before, you're in for a treat. Your group will be taken into a room with your team and locked inside (don't worry, you can get out if there's a problem--or if like my daughter, you really have to use the restroom!). You'll be given a set of clues and puzzles that you need to decode in order to be able to unlock the room and escape. At the Escape Room in Park City, each team is paired with a guide who is out of the room but watches you on a camera and gives you a few hints on a screen, or if you're really stuck, they'll give you a clue.

Park City Summer Activities

Your options for things to do in Park City is limitless, no matter your age. Try your hand at fly-fishing, soar above the mountains in a hot air balloon, explore the mountain on foot, a bike, or horseback, test your balance with stand up paddle board yoga, or tackle one of our golf courses. However you choose to explore Park City, it all makes for an unforgettable summer vacation. Let the fun begin.

Park City Fly Fishing

Park City may have the greatest snow on earth, but the town isn't just for skiers. When the snow melts, all those steep ski runs turn into dusty single tracks for mountain bikers and trail runners.

Plus, all that melted snow needs to go somewhere. By May, all that powder becomes some of the most beautiful and pristine rivers in the Wasatch Range. Flies and larva begin to hatch, and fly fishing season is in full swing in Park City.

Blue Ribbon Fly Fishing

A short cast away from downtown Park City are two of the fishiest rivers in the Rockies. The Provo River carves right through the Heber Valley and rolls down Provo Canyon. Across the valley, the Weber River connects the Echo and Rockport reservoirs. Both of these are blue ribbon fisheries: quality fly fishing locations where the state ensures that the water is plentiful, the shores are accessible, and the fish keep jumping. Both Provo and Weber rivers maintain a high number of large fish per mile.

Still Water Fly Fishing

If streams and eddies aren't part of your fly fishing game, then hit the still water in a float tube or pontoon. The nearby reservoirs — Strawberry, Echo, Rockport, and Jordanelle — are stocked with fish and ready for the season. It's common to hear about local anglers pulling in 25+ inch monsters from some of these lakes. Come try out still water fly fishing near Park City, and go home with your own big fish story.

Plus, if you're traveling in from out of town, any number of the local guide and gear shops can help you find a prime fly fishing spot.

Horseback Riding in Park City

While the trails in Park City are full of runners and cyclist, horseback riders in Park City know that one of the best ways to enjoy the beautiful mountain vistas is from the seat of a saddle.

The horses stabled by Park City guides are kind, responsive, and emotional creatures. Plus, they love to go out on the mountain trails having made the journey countless times. Even if you have limited horseback riding experience, you and find a stable and tour that will allow you to get the most out of Park City's spectacular terrain.

Red Pine Adventures , located just around the corner from Canyons Village, offers guided horseback rides all on Red Pine's own privately owned land. Summer means you'll get a whisk of cool mountain air from atop your horse and a great view of meadows full of wildflowers and sublime mountain peaks. You may even see a grazing deer or elk during your traverse through the wilderness.

If you're staying right in Park City, you also might want to try Destination Sports and Adventure . They're known for their summertime fly fishing tours, and they have horseback riding adventures as well, ranging from one and a half to four hours in length. Take a ride through wooded trails under the shimmering dance of aspen leaves.
