And today we are taking a few moments to help you plan a Park City getaway that offers all the fun at a budget-friendly cost, ensuring that a good time will be had and fantastic memories will be made.

A Good Meal at a Good Price

Dining out can be the most expensive part of every vacation and while there are many high-end restaurants in town that are perfect for those wanting to splurge there may be even more that serve fantastic food at reasonable prices, including one of our favorite chill hangouts, Davanza’s. Located at 690 Park Avenue and offering a menu filled with burgers, pizzas, and tacos, it’s a restaurant the entire family will love. For those who love pub grub, Park City Roadhouse Grill, 1900 Park Avenue is a microbrewery that serves an extensive menu of favorites and also offers breakfast every day of the week.

Free Concerts

Nothing saves a budget more than something free and on many Thursday and Saturday nights in the summertime, Canyons Village Stage will be offering free concerts for everyone to enjoy. There is no greater pleasure in life than an outdoor concert on a beautiful summer day and your Park City getaway will be the perfect opportunity to discover why this is so.

Outdoor Adventures

As the snow melts and the mercury begins to rise, outdoor activities such as hiking, mountain biking, and fishing become popular adventures for locals and travelers alike. Below we have listed a few examples of where you can enjoy these adventures and a brief estimate as to how much they will cost.

Hiking in Park City – This first adventure is destined to make you fall in love with the beauty of our Utah mountain town and the variety of trails offered will appeal to hikers of all skill levels. One of the easiest trails is the Bloods Lake Trail, which also happens to be dog-friendly so don’t be surprised if you get to pet someone’s pooch while wandering. The cost for hiking is, of course, free, needing nothing more than a good pair of shoes and plenty of water for gear.

Mountain Biking in Park City – When you are looking for a little more speed in your Park City travels, renting a mountain bike from White Pine Touring, 1790 Bonanza Drive, is a reasonably priced way to do so. Rental rates begin at $56 for 4 hours ($72 for all day) and the trails that can be found in the area are also ideal for bikers of all skill levels.

Fishing in Park City – The cost of fishing varies, depending on whether you head out alone on a fishing expedition or if you decide to hire guides to take you to where the fish are biting best. A 7 day fishing license costs just $30 but if you want to take a guided trip, expect costs to begin at about $325 dollars per person.

Then, continue your extravagant meal with a main entree. We love the “beef and barley” options for meat eaters who want a grilled sirloin, barley risotto, greens, and seasonal vegetables. If you are a vegetarian, don’t fret – the charred cauliflower with black lentil hummus, sorrel pesto, and sauteed dandelion greens is one of the best dishes on the entire menu.

Pair your dish with a bottle of white or red wine to split with your partner. Or you can order a fancy cocktail or an ice-cold beer that pairs well with certain types of meat dishes or seafood. We love the atmosphere here for a lovely date night or an afternoon out on the town.

The Aura Spa Collaborative is a long-standing business in the Utah industry that focuses on providing a harmonious and stress-free environment with massage and bodywork, facials and skin care, hand and foot grooming, and other services.

Our favorite option for a romantic evening or day with your partner is to get a long, 90-minute massage with add-ons available at your leisure, like CBD oil to help you relax, aromatherapy to help with any pre-existing conditions or anxiety, muscle balm to soothe aching muscles, and 3-5 hot stones for deep relaxation.

After A long message with your partner, you can both get a facial to leave there with glowing skin and a healthy outlook on life.

Your mother has done so much for you over the years — now it is time for you to repay the favor! Instead of doing the same-old family get-together, brunch, or shopping trip with your mom, we have a better idea in mind. Why not go somewhere special where you can truly spend quality time with your loved ones, enjoy the great outdoors, and spend time in the bright and beautiful sunshine?

Sounds good, doesn’t it? We think so too! We are talking about Park City, Utah, an outdoors person’s paradise that features dozens of ski slopes, hiking trails, bike paths, mouthwatering restaurants, cool breweries, caffeine-laden cafes, and much more.

Let’s check out some of the top things to do for the bustling and exciting Mother’s Day weekend in Park City, and why we can guarantee you will have a relaxing and cozy time in one of the properties from Summit Luxury Vacations.

Enjoy Brunch

One of the most popular things to do during Mother’s Day weekend in Park City is to have a filling and hearty brunch. Luckily for you, there are a few options that are stand-outs from the rest when it comes to finding brunches and spreads that feature savory dishes, sweet treats, never-ending coffee, cocktails, and great ambiance for the entire family.

Firstly, we recommend checking out The Eating Establishment, a modern and upscale eatery that features extravagant dishes like Eggs Benedict with savory breakfast potatoes, French Toast for a sweet, nostalgia-inspired dish, and a pork hash skillet for those who want a meaty breakfast to keep them full all day long! Plus, with some avocado toast, you can really tick all of your boxes.

Secondly, another good option for a Mother’s Day treat is Hearth and Hill, featuring an exquisite and detailed menu that features vegetarian plates, complicated dishes, and vegan options for you and your family. We recommend getting one of the H and H Burgers or a smothered breakfast burrito.

Lastly, another great choice for those who want a brunch that your mother is going to talk about for weeks on end is Five 5eeds. This restaurant is famous all year round for tourists and locals alike — and you will soon find out why! We recommend ordering their specials – Çilbir – Turkish Eggs or the Fragrant Chicken Noodle Soup. You’re also sure to enjoy these foods from the breakfast menu – the pulled pork benedict or the Perc’s granola parfait. Lastly, if you’re looking for something more hearty try these from their lunch menu – the fried chicken sando or the pork belly bao buns. You can get a little bit of everything here!

Head Out for a Hike

Another cool thing to do during your Mother’s Day weekend with your family is to go for a hike! If the snow has finally melted and you want to get into the great outdoors to see the sights and sounds of nature, then we have a few suggestions for you. First, the Glenwild and Stealth Trail at Spring Creek Trailhead is the ideal option for beginners who have small kids with them. If you want another easy option for a post-brunch walk, then we recommend going to McLeod Creek Trail to soak in the sights of the incredible desert!

For a harder choice, you can’t go wrong with the Bloods Lake Trail or Armstrong Trail. Despite this trail not being very long or difficult, Bloods Lake is a fair hike that includes some scrambling up boulders, switchback girls to help elevate your heart rate, and the option of adding another spur trail to Lackawaxen Lake higher up for an amazing viewpoint. You can also head to Armstrong Trail for a famous and well-known option that is popular among tourists and locals alike. We recommend bringing a snack or some lunch and taking off on this nearly 4-mile trail that features bright flowers, aspen trees, and incredible views of the nearby Park City town.

Sounds great, doesn’t it? We think so too! Check out the top things to do during your Park City Easter vacation.

Have a Tasty Easter Brunch!

Easter is known for easter egg hunts, spending time with your family, and of course, brunch! There are endless options for restaurants, bars, and cafes that churn out filling plates, boozy drinks, and good vibes for you and your friends or family.

We recommend going to Hearth and Hill if you come here with young kids – children under 4 years old eat free! Head here and try one of their classic dishes, like the healthy grilled cedar plank salmon with special sauce, filling Eggs Benedict with crispy ham, and an endless menu of desserts that will satisfy your sweet tooth before you go on a scavenger hunt for even more chocolate!

For those who want a more relaxed vibe, and one that caters to dietary restrictions, we love going to Element Kitchen and Bakery. Open from 9 am to 2 pm, this is the ideal spot to head and grab some coffees, pastries, and vegan dishes for your friends or family as a nice takeaway lunch to bring back to your beautiful condo, apartment, or house on the mountain.

If you are more in the mood for a special occasion and something fancy, check out Versante Hearth and Bar, a beautiful and ornate restaurant that offers a prix fixe three-course menu for just $45 a head. For all of the beautiful food, amazing plating, strong drinks, and immaculate service, $45 is a steal. Try some of the organic and locally sourced dishes, like zucchini cakes, almond-crusted French toast with fresh fruit and whipped cream, or ginger pear crostata to finish the meal with a sweet kick!

Head Out of the House to Ski

Although your home or condo in Park City might be so nice that you want to stay inside all day long, as soon as you gaze out of the windows and see the snow-capped mountains, lush green acres, pine tree forests, and flowing rivers, it is going to be hard to pass up! The spring brings a mixture of snow and green pastures that are perfect for spring skiing. The mountains are filled with snow but the weather is warming. So you get the fun of skiing but without the biting cold.

There are a lot of benefits to spring skiing, the weather is one of them! Still dress warm but know you won’t be freezing! Not only that, but there will be a lot fewer people on the mountain which means fewer lines, less waiting, and more time skiing! Another benefit is that April marks the end of the ski season which means there might be discounts and deals on day passes or multiple-day passes. You can enjoy the joy of skiing in beautiful surroundings this Easter!

Hit the Ski and Snowboard Slopes

Get your skis and snowboard out of the closet and head to the slopes! You can make use of the very end of the ski season by getting the last of the bright white snow and cruising on some fresh powder. After the springtime, it is hiking all summer long — so make sure you get in the last Black Diamond run and feel the breeze against your face. There are tons of resorts in the Park City area, such as Park City Mountain, that are perfect for skiers and snowboarders of all levels.

Don’t Forget to Enjoy Après Ski

No day on the slopes is complete without après ski! Head to one of the local bars and restaurants to get a nice hot cup of cocoa, ice-cold beer, or a fresh glass of wine to celebrate the sunny and snowy day on the pristine mountain. We recommend going to one of the numerous bars, pubs, restaurants, or lounges just a few steps away from Park City Mountain. Some of our favorites include Drafts Sports Bar and Grill for watching the big game, sipping on some ice-cold beer, and having a tasty burger. Or, you can go to the Umbrella bar to sit outside, feel the sun on your face, and warm up after being on the cold mountain. Another favorite spot is the Corner Store for sitting outside on the large patio and eating your meal al fresco.

Head to Downtown for the Most Fun Events in Park City

Spring is one of the best times for you to walk around the historic downtown area of Park City! In the summer, it is too hot to spend the peak time outdoors. During the winter, it might be too cold. However, during the spring, there are fewer people, and the weather is perfect for walking along the street, going shopping, popping in and out of cafes, and bringing back souvenirs for your best friends. We recommend going to one of the hundreds of bars and restaurants on Main Street to try the local cuisine. The No Name Saloon is one of the best spots to kick off a fun night!

Check Out Utah Olympic Park

The Olympic Park is an Olympic training and competition area held in Park City that serves as the annual training ground for sports of all kinds. The best athletes from around the country come here to train and prepare for the big event every four years! Plus, the park is open to visitors who are interested in seeing the high-performance facilities and the towering ski slopes and jumps.

But what happens if you visit Park City during a rare rainy spell — what now? The good thing about this incredibly beautiful and serene natural area is that there are so many things to do in Park City, both indoor and outdoor, that tourists can always find something to do no matter the weather.

Watch a Movie

One of the best things to do on a rainy or cold day is to stay in and watch a movie, right? Well, we think that one of the top things to do when it is rainy or blustery in park city is to head to the Park City Film Series to watch a feature length film that is going to brighten your spirits and get rid of those rain clouds. Cozy up with a big bowl of popcorn and a soda to split with your friend and check out one of Park City’s many movie theaters run by the Film Series. Whether you like a good comedy or you are in the mood for a rom com, there is always something for everyone!

Hit the Shops

Another fun thing to do during a rainy or cold day is to check out the numerous shops that frequent the downtown area of Park City. You can go shopping for niche items or see if you can find some souvenirs to bring home for your friends who are at home. We love going to the numerous boutiques for high-end items, going shopping for vintage clothing on Historic Main Street, or getting a great deal on some brand-name clothes at the Outlets at Park City

Get a Filling Brunch!

There is no shortage of breakfast and brunch spots in Park City that will make you full for the rest of the day and rave about savory eggs or sweet French Toast for your entire vacation! Some of our favorites are right in the downtown area, so you can easily walk here on foot from your handy accommodation.

One of our top choices is The Eating Establishment, a down-home diner that has been a Park City staple for 50 years! We love the breakfast sandwich on a brioche bun with garlic aioli, corned beef hash and eggs skillet with fried onions, or the biscuits and gravy to fill you up before you go shopping in the rainy weather. If you are in the mood for something sweet, the wide choice of pancakes and French toast is perfect for those who want something a little dessert-like to start the day!

At The Bridge Cafe and Grill, you can get no-fuss plates for a low price that is perfect for a quick breakfast or a filling brunch with the family. We love breakfast staples like the Brazuca omelet with your choice for five fillings, pancakes with powdered sugar and whipped butter, Cristo Redentor with ham and cheese, or the Brioche Breakfast with scrambled eggs, strong Havarti cheese, and fresh avocado.

We also love going to Five5eeds during our vacations in Park City. If you are in the mood for something a bit more eclectic and modern, then head here on Snow Creek Drive to try something a little different than the typical eggs and bread dish. We love getting one of the Specials that frequently rotate according to what is in season and available in the area — talk about farm-to-table! One of the most popular dishes right now in the cold weather is the local mushrooms, crispy polenta, and thyme pangrattato with shiitake mushrooms and polenta cake.

If you are in the mood for something light before you go for a hike, you can’t go wrong with ‘The Merperson’ Smoothie Bowl with spirulina, coconut milk, banana granola, coconut flakes, blueberry, and passion fruit. For an all-day breakfast dish that will surely fill you up until dinner, we love the pulled pork benedict with apple cider hollandaise sauce, Shakshuka with Moroccan eggs and feta, or PC Superfood bowl with rice, quinoa, broccolini, beets, and hummus.

Enjoy These Things to Do in Park City No Matter the Weather

A little rain never hurt anybody! At least that’s what we think. Going to Park City at any time of the year is a magical experience, so make sure the weather doesn’t deter your plans.

And during the rainy days, check out this guide to make the most out of your holiday vacation stay!

When we think of Christmas, we think of snow, Santa, reindeer, presents, and holiday cheer! Don’t you? One of the best places to really have a great time with your family, friends, or partner is a winter wonderland. Why not embrace the colder weather, feet of snowfall, and shorter days? That’s right, we are thinking of a primetime ski and snowboard destination that is perfect for adventurous souls who want to get out on the slopes, go snowshoeing, try your luck at Black Diamond runs, and curl up by the hot fireplace in the evening after a long day of being outside.

Head to Park City, Utah, for the upcoming winter break. We love how you can walk outside of our backdoor and be in the mountains in minutes! There are dozens of activities for Christmas in Park City, including kid-friendly attractions, outdoor activities, and much more.

Top Christmas Activities in Park City, Utah

Head to Park City for your upcoming holiday to check out the best winter activities, cold-weather attractions, year-round things to do, and Christmas-themed holiday events that are great for young kids, entire families, and romantic getaways!

Walk Down the Historic Main Street

One of the coolest things about Park City, Utah is that there is a historical section that is perfect for shopping, walking around on a blustery winter day, and taking photos in front of the brightly colored buildings. You can wander around and head inside cozy coffee shops, get a drink at one of the many bars or pubs, have a mouthwatering meal or a hot bowl of soup during a cold day, or bring back some souvenirs from one of the local shops.

Take the Chairlift to the Top of the Slopes!

Plus, once you’re done wandering around the historical part of downtown Park City, you can take the chairlift — yes, that’s right. The chairlift goes from the top of the sky-high ski mountain to the middle of town, meaning you can get from the bear to the top of the mountain in just minutes! We love going to the city in the morning for a cup of coffee and a filling breakfast and then taking the lift to the top of the slopes to burn off those pancakes and waffle calories!

Go for a Sleigh Ride

These Christmas-themed activities are great for families with kids who want to see the sights of the town, enjoy a holiday activity, and get off your feet for a little while! You can choose from a video of sleigh ride options and companies in Park City, as this is one of the most popular things to do during a winter afternoon. Head out in the fresh snowfall and buy a sleigh ride and dinner combination for an ideal Christmas evening.

Head Out on a Snowmobile!

For those who want something a little more fast-paced and adrenaline-filled, we recommend going snowmobiling in Park City! Rent a snowmobile and learn how to use one from one of the professional companies — then whiz around the sleek streets and the steep hills!

Find the Ideal Sledding Hill

Last but not least, Christmas in Park City is the perfect time to go sledding. Bring your kids, whether they are toddlers or teens, to a nearby neighborhood hill and whiz down the snow on your toboggan, circular sled, or inner tube.

Grab Some Hot Chocolate

The good thing about Park City is that you can combine the best of both worlds — you have restaurants, cafes, pubs, and bars right next to a nature-filled oasis! After a long day of skiing, sledding, or snowboarding, you can head to one of the cozy coffee shops or pubs with a fireplace to get a hot cocoa. If you are old enough, try a hot whiskey with lemon to warm up after shredding the snow all day long!

If you want to help people in need during this holiday season to get some good karma and teach your kids the importance of giving back, head to this blood drive to be a good hero for your children.

Howl O Ween on Main Street

Howl O Ween is a fun street fair on Historic Main Street in Park City on Halloween. Held every year on Halloween day, this is one of the biggest Halloween-themed celebrations in the entire area!

Pumpkin Nights

Although this is a short drive away from Park City, the Pumpkin Nights in Salt Lake City is one of the best themed days and nights that you can attend during the Halloween season! Even though your kids should be above a certain age limit, this is one of the best events for teenagers and their parents.
