Think Park City for Summer

If you have ever had a chance to make your way out west, one of the places that never disappoints and is close to my heart is to the beautiful state of Utah, and the small quaint town of Park City. Some might think that Park City is only a winter destination because it offers “The Best Snow on Earth,” but in reality it also boasts a host of activities for Summer. With hiking, mountain biking, camping and zip lining, there is a multitude of activities for the entire family.

Walking up and down Historic Main street, you will be amazed that it is lined up with diverse culinary tastes, beautiful galleries as well as upscale shopping. It also the place that holds the largest US independent film festival, the Sundance Film Festival founded by Robert Redford. There are many beautiful places to stay and relax. The Montage Deer Valley caters to families with lots of activities and a fun atmosphere, we especially love Daly’s Pub. This is a haven for the young and old. There are two pool tables, dart boards, arcade games, flat screen T. V’s, and a bowling alley. The pub also offers a variety of comfort foods. The soft Bavarian pretzel with mustard fondue was wonderful and the braised short ribs with garlic gnocchi was out of this world. Another local destination for families is Park City Mountain resort, which is home to the Alpine slide and Alpine Coaster. It is rated as one of the most family friendly resort in the mountains.

I also had the privilege to experience Provo River Falls, and Mirror Lake. The scenic byway is the way to go. It is 45 miles of the most beautiful scenery you will ever see.  This road leads you into the snowcapped Uinta mountains, and reaches nearly 13,000 feet. There are ten 13,000 foot peaks and very scenic mountains. I would recommend bringing a picnic or a bagged lunch since there no restaurants nearby. Once there you can unpack your lunch sit on a blanket and take in the gorgeous veiws that surround you or bring your swim suit and jump right on in.

Leaving here will leave you refreshed and rejuvinated from the beauty of the outdoors. It is truly a mystical place where families can unwind, unplug, and reconnect with each other.
