Summer Journey to Park City

HomePark City JourneysSummer Journey to Park City

Although many think of Park City as a primarily summer destination, we at Park City Hotels know that this fact is anything but true. In the fall months, the colors of trees dressed in their best autumn garb will never fail to take your breath away, and in the spring, the promise of green is visible nearly everywhere you look, and early spring brings more opportunities to extend winter, especially as ski season doesn’t end until the final days of April, or in some surprisingly snowy seasons, even May! Summer in Park City, however, adds joy to our hearts, offering a variety of adventures you will wish never had to end, and we have composed this guide to help fill the hours of your summer journey to Park City!

Day 1: The Magic Begins

Your first day in Park City is likely to be a short one as you have spent many of the early hours in transit from your hometown to here, and as such, all that will probably happen is a nice dinner as the sun is setting later in the day! There are many restaurants in town that will serve up good food and amazing views, but perhaps the most stunning and unforgettable meal you can enjoy will be in the Alpenglobes at Stein Ericksen Lodge. Keeping out the elements while letting in the incredible views, this meal will be expensive, delicious, memorable, and the best way to begin your adventures in Park City!

Day 2: Deer Valley Music Festival

Your summer moments are meant to be spent relaxing and enjoying the sounds of the Utah Symphony, and the Deer Valley Music Festival is the best way to do just that! Performing on Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays in a variety of different locations, guests can expect to enjoy a combination of classical, funk, country, and rock, all of which will be enjoyed even more as the concerts are performed under the stars!

Day 2: Let It Fly

Fly fishing is one of the popular Park City summer activities, enjoyed in the early morning hours as the sun rises over the horizon and the world comes to life all around! Take an early morning jaunt for yourself on the lower Provo River, donning waders and carrying a cooler with beverages and snacks and spend a few hours greeting the new day while you catch your limit of delicious trout! Travelers who may not be sure of the best spots or have not fly fished before may want to hire a guide, perhaps the Park City Fly Fishing Company that has been guiding anglers for over 40 years. Knowing where the fish bite best and offering tips on how to cast your line successfully you have to figure they have more than a few tricks up their sleeves due to the longevity of their business!

Day 3: Giddy Up!

After the snow melts, visitors and residents turn to a plethora of outdoor activities to fill the long days of summer, and the guided horseback rides offered by Red Pine Adventures will surely help you make memories that last a lifetime during your summer journey to Park City! Located just outside of town, they offer tours of over 1000 acres of private land, providing guests with an up close and personal tour of the town.

Day 4: Park City Alpine Slide

Take a trip back to your childhood with a thrilling ride down the mountain on the Park City Alpine Slide! Open only during the summer months, this exciting adventure offers one of the longest slides in the nation at over 3000 feet in length and is fun for everyone 48 inches or taller. This slide is a little too much for younger travelers, so if your kiddos are under the minimum height, planning a later return to Park City may be something you should think about!

Day 5: FORE!

As the sun stays out longer and the nights are shorter, visitors minds often turn to a tiny white and dimpled ball. Yes, golf is popular in Park City, and because there are 15 different courses in and around our mountain town, a golf vacation may be in store for you! Make a tee time at a different course every day, starting with Canyons Golf Course located in Canyons Village at Park City Mountain, one of the best courses in the nation.

Day 6: Utah Olympic Park Flying Aces

Although this next adventure is one you will watch, not participate in, we can promise you will enjoy every minute! The daredevils of the Flying Aces (all Olympic athletes!) offer a half hour long choreographed acrobatic show every Friday and Saturday, starting at 6 PM from mid-June through Labor Day Weekend! Watch them soar through the air, landing with a splash in the Park’s Spence Eccles Olympic Freestyle Pool at the end of their “flight.”

Day 7: Say Goodbye to Park City

This week has been a whirlwind adventure during summer in Park City, but on the seventh day of your stay, it is time to go! Enjoy a big breakfast at the Bridge Café and Grill, upper deck 825 Main Street and begin planning your next season’s adventures in Park City.
