The local mountain ranges tower at 9000 feet, which, by default, allows Park City to take family fun to new heights. With snow shredding in the winter and hot air ballooning and Alpine Coasters in the summer, the dreaded "Mom, 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 and summer kids camps and by encountering clowns, magicians, face painters and more at the Park Silly Sunday Market held every Sunday throughout the summer.
Park City Resort
Park City is no ordinary small town, its high-altitude home to over 100 (many award-winning unrivaled) restaurants. The old days of silver mining are long gone and what remains are the buildings along the historic Main Street, which house many of the fine restaurants which serve more tourists than locals. Most have a rustic yet urban chic interior, such as Riverhorse on Main and Robert Redford's restaurant he opened in 1995, Zoom. Some are more quaint, like Cafe Terigo, some sexy beautiful, such as Wahso, the Asian grille. But the top restaurants in Park City all have one thing in common - great food due to the high standard of excellence expected in this exclusive resort town.
Hiking & Biking
For some guests, a visit to the Spa while on vacation is all about indulgence and pampering while on your visit to Park City. For others its a chance to take a much needed break for a little massage therapy after a long day of skiing or boarding on the "Greatest Snow on Earth!" While the ladies are sprucing up with a facial and a beauty treatment, the boys should seek the comfort of a world class massage and a hydrotherapy soak. Park City is home to many 5-Star Spa's including the Spa at Stein Eriksens, Spa Montage at Deer Valley, Remede Spa at the St Regis Deer Valley and Waldorf Astoria Spa at the Park City Mountain Resort.
Riverhorse on Main
The Wasatch Mountains are a world class hiking and sledding destination for adventures of all levels. From the back of the Bobsled House you can take a 3 mile hike up to Olympic Park and check out the Olympic Ski Jump or challenge yourself to go beyond the park that lead you to the top of the Cotton Wood Canyon and a breathtaking 360 view of the Wasatch Mountains. Around every corner and as close as steps from the house you will find amazing sledding hills that can provide hours of fun for the entire family. Or if you want the perfect sledding hill check out Gorgoza Park where they groom their hill nightly.
From après-ski to late night revelry, downtown Park City nightlife offers a myriad of options for those looking to tie it on after a day on the slopes. The late-night scene in downtown Park City is as good as the cruisers on the mountain, but, be warned, getting up early for fresh turns on the corduroy gets a lot harder after spending a late night in one of the buzzing night clubs in Park City. There are classy clubs where Hollywood’s stars are bedecked in fur and put the “CITY” in Park City, and there are low-key locals where a flannel is considered dressy and whiskey and Pabst pour freely. Regardless of what you’re looking for during your night on the town, there’s a bar, night club, pub, or hotspot in Park City that will fit the bill.
