There are getaways that travelers look forward to every year, cherishing the time they get to spend away from real life, exploring the beauty of new places, new restaurants, and new experiences. Although these casual getaways are good for your peace and serenity, it is the vacations you take to spectacular locations, staying in luxurious abodes, and feeling pampered and spoiled with each new adventure that is good for the soul. A vacation in Park City, offering a backdrop of dramatically beautiful mountains, cool air, and luxury shops will change the way you look at vacations, especially when you choose our Summit Luxury Vacations Park City Heights escape to shelter and spoil!

Springing forth from the hilly landscape of Park City and constructed of glass, wood, and stone, Park City Heights offers something more for everyone who chooses to reside within. Strategically located to enjoy easy commutes to all 3 of our ski resorts, and yes, we said 3 as Mayflower Ski Resort is opening in 2024, guests can spend their days exploring snow-covered summits and enjoying après ski and then come home to luxury and style every night.
Follow the paths of wood floors to spaces filled with light, warmth, and treasures awaiting to be revealed, including two living areas offering plush sofas, state-of-the-art televisions, and a fireplace for added warmth and romance. Coffered ceilings are high, windows are large, and the views are unlimited in Park City Heights, with its open-concept floor plan, families can do their own thing while staying connected with a glance, a smile, or a casual comment. The dining room, just like yours at home, offers multiple purposes in its windowed alcove that opens to the large patio just beyond the French door.
Play games with the family, perhaps some that line the shelves of the built-ins flanking each side of the fireplace, enjoy a loud and rambunctious family feast, or sit in the early morning quiet with a cup of coffee staring out at the Park City countryside, enjoying these moments of peace before the revelry with friends and/or family begins again! The gourmet kitchen offers a footprint larger than most people’s homes, providing luxury appliances that any professional chef would be thrilled to have in his own home. Painted white cabinets, white marble countertops, and a large center island with 4 barstools make this room feel like a family home and the double gas range makes it easy to cook for the entire gang!
The Space You Crave
Although cozy can be a good thing, it is generally a word used to describe smaller and cramped spaces, neither of which could be used to describe the spaces available in Park City Heights! Bedrooms with fireplaces, private sitting areas, and televisions nearly as large as the ones in the public spaces provide a haven of tranquility, and ensuite baths with marble tile and deep soaking tubs (1 placed under a window that frames the snowcapped mountains perfectly!) help ease the transition between wide awake and very happily asleep! The bunk room with 2 full over full bunk beds provides an idyllic escape for cousins, siblings, and friends of all ages, and California Kings in 3 out of the 5 bedrooms ensure there is plenty of elbow room for restless sleepers!
Closets the size of bedrooms offer room to hold all your luggage and the treasures you have purchased during shopping expeditions in Park City and a second living room/game room/kitchen will give multiple families vacationing together their own private retreat! (Share the games though; those are for everyone!) High-speed internet allows for practically glitch-free virtual meetings in the office space which also provides a shredder for any important papers you no longer need and a fitness room is equipped with everything you need for a good workout.
A laundry room with cabinets, countertops, and a laundry sink proves that our attention to detail doesn’t end at the glamorous stuff and a ski storage area helps keep skis and winter gear tucked away until needed for use! Outside spaces include multiple places to sit, relax, and savor the meal freshly prepared on the provided grill and a fire pit to gather around on the cooler, even colder, nights of the year! Every detail is the most important one when you choose Summit Luxury Vacations and Park City Heights is the perfect example! Reserve this beautiful sanctuary today!
Are you planning to visit Park City around Halloween? It’s a great time to visit the area! Read on below to see everything you need to know about Halloween in Park City.
Fun Run Event for Halloween in Park City
Just because you are here in Park City on a holiday, this doesn’t mean you have to let your fitness and health go by the wayside! Fortunately for you, not only can you go hiking, white water rafting, biking, and bird watching, but you can also take part in a community Fun Run event right in the heart of Park City. This is a great way for you to see the sights of the downtown area of Park City, meet other like-minded people, and feel good about yourself before you gorge on candy later in the day!
The Fun Run is on Saturday, October 29th, 2023, at 10 AM. Wake up and grab yourself a cup of coffee at one of the numerous cafes downtown and head to the starting line. You can easily find the start of the race by just following the herd of people in colorful Halloween gear and costumes!
Bring Your Kids to the Costume Swap
Teaching your kids the importance of giving and charity is a great way to make them appreciate what they have! We recommend heading to the local Park City Library to pick up some books, read a few stories, and exchange a book while you are here. You can bring in some of your homemade Halloween costumes and take part in a costume swap. Between September 29th and October 1st, the Park City Library offers a costume swap that lets you donate your kids’ and adult costumes for a gently used one this Halloween! Become a part of the community this holiday season and feel good about yourself by helping give back.
Head Out on the Hiking Trails
One thing to keep in mind this holiday season is that the hiking trails can be quite crowded. We recommend going hiking on one of the numerous beautiful paths early in the morning to avoid the crowds, later in the day, (with sufficient knowledge of the trail and headlamps) or taking lesser-known trails to avoid tons of crowds. There are really popular spots that everyone visits—like Silver Lake Trail, for good reason—but they can be too crowded on holiday weekends. Instead, check these out.
First up, we recommend starting with Yeti’s to Moose Puddle hike. This exciting trail starts at the beginning of Olympic Parkway in Utah Olympic Park and winds you 6 miles up the trail. This is one of the best hikes for you to soak in the pristine views, see the changing of the leaves up close and personal, smell the aspen trees as you walk along, and see incredible viewpoints of Murdock.
The second option for a fun and exciting trail that avoids tons of crowds is the Snow Top Loop. This trail starts at the Lower Deer Valley Resort Lot and the Solamere trailhead. We love these 3-mile trails for beginner hikers who want to get out in nature and escape the loud noises, music playing, and slow walkers! As soon as you start the hike, you will get a bit of a workout as you walk more than 300 feet upwards over the Jordanelle Reservoir and Park City Mountain Resort.
Lastly, we love taking the IO Trail and Charlie’s 9K trail starting at Bloods Lake Trailhead or Bonanza Flat Trailhead. This unique option of a combination of trails varies, so you can choose where you want to start and how you want to extend your adventure. If you want to avoid people, start at the Bonanza Flat Trailhead and begin your hike through the trees toward Jupiter Peak — the snow-capped mountain will truly take your breath away!
Make a Dinner Reservation
After a long day of hiking, the best thing to do is get a bite to eat. During Halloween in Park City, when tourists are here to enjoy the Halloween events, party, and drink all day long, it is best to make a dinner reservation so you and your guests are not kept waiting for hours at the door! We recommend checking out Handle for an American classic that offers tasty and local food with hefty portions and a fun ambiance. If you are in the mood for fine dining for a special occasion, like a date with your partner, Riverhorse on Main offers up fresh flavors, local produce, interesting flavor combinations, refined plating, and an upscale ambiance that we love for a weekend out on the town.
Other local favorites include Chop Shop, a casual and laid-back sandwich spot that offers the infamous Butler Dip with Swiss cheese, beef, and caramelized onions, Corona Italian Cafe with the best gnocchi in the world, and Twisted Fern, with a healthy and hearty weekend lunch.

Planning a fall trip to Park City? You can enjoy many of the most enjoyable Park City fall activities without breaking the bank! Read on to see how to enjoy a budget-friendly fall journey to Park City.
Head Out on the Trail
A free and fun thing to do all year round is to go hiking in Park City, Utah. Although you have to pay for ski passes, snowboard lessons, rentals, and lift passes in the winter months to access the mountains, the summer is the best time to soak in the views, get in a great workout, and push yourself by taking full advantage of the free trials, hiking paths, and lakes surrounding Park City.
If you are in the mood for a short and easy/medium trail to get started on your vacation, then we recommend going on the Bloods Lake Trail. This easy 2.7-mile trail takes approximately 1 hour to 1 hour and 30 minutes, depending on your speed and pacing. We love this trail since it is popular all year long due to the pristine weather in the springtime, bright sunny days in the summer, changing leaves in the fall, and crisp breeze in the later months. Bring your kids because they will love the rock scrambling at the end and the adventure of climbing over and under rocks to reach the final destination!
For those who are intense trail runners, or cyclists or enjoy all-day hiking to get out of the hustle and bustle of the tourist traps, we recommend going on the Wasatch Crest Trail. This long and exciting trail provides expansive vows over nearby bright blue lakes, rolling hillsides, far-away peaks, and lush green pine forests. This hard trail takes around 8 hours and 30 minutes, so make sure you bring snacks, emergency gear, and layers during this trip. You can enjoy solitude and become one with nature as you travel on this long and picturesque trail during your stay in Park City.
Large groups, families, and solo travelers alike all love the Gambel Oak Loop if you are new to hiking or are traveling with kids. This 4-mile loop trail only takes around two hours to complete and offers a gentle incline and easy terrain for those who are interested in a fast and simple walk with their friends. You can even head here in the wintertime to bring your snowshoes and experience the winter wonderland! We love this trail for bringing kids and pups to check out the expensive views and the changing leaves on the trees.
Lastly, we love going on Jenny’s Trail if you only have time for one last hike before going back home. This iconic trail offers far-reaching views of the red rocks and provides a little bit of shade during the hot summer months. We love the changing terrain, ample parking, and mountain biking opportunities.
Head to the Montage
If you are out and about on a cold and brisk night, you might need some warming up. Grab your blanket and head to the Montage to make some smores! We love this family-friendly activity to warm up, tell stories, bond with one another, and meet other people in the area. You can bring your own drinks and snuggle under one of the blankets any time between 4-5 pm in the winter months or 8-9 during the warmer summer season.
Check out Canyons Village
Canyons Village is one of the most popular destinations in Park City, and you will soon see why! Head here to take a trip on the ‘Cab,’ as the locals call it, and enjoy your spin around the town.
Listen to Live Music
There is tons of live music happening all year round in Park City, and most of it is free! We love going to the park City Mountain to listen to musicians and bands sing their hearts out and hear the crowd sing along. You can also go to Canyons Village to listen to local musicians and sit outside while you have an al fresco dinner and watch the sunset. There is no better way to end the day!
Admire Utah Olympic Park
The Utah Olympic Park is an incredible sight to see that is a must-visit for all newbies in the area. Even if you go here just once to take pictures, it really is a sight for sore eyes. The winding road brings you to the top of the park, where you can watch the zip lining, ski jumping, tubing, and extreme sports as you sit outside and soak in the far-reaching views.
If you want, you can spend a rainy afternoon inside the Alf Engen Ski Museum to see the history of skiing in the area or learn more about the Olympic Games. Admission to this museum, and the Eccles 2002 Olympic Winter Games Museum, are free, so you never have to worry about spending a penny.
