Summer Activities

My wife and I plan to be in Park City for a week in August 2013. We will be accompanied by a relative who is an active senior. I am interested in learning about things to do in Park City and the surrounding area at that time of year. What are some of the attractions that are popular? Thank you.

Lots to do. On the adventure side, Utah Olympic Park, Canyons Resort and Park City Mountain Resort offer a variety of high energy activities like zip line rides, bobsled rides, alpine slide and coaster, etc.

Biking and hiking is popular. Checkout 400 miles of local trails at mountaintrails.org.

Tour of the Utah Olympic Park and Olympic Museum.

Stroll Main Street and visit hundreds of shops and restaurants.

Lots to do. Have fun.

Then you can take a drive up to the Uinta Mountains- Mirror Lake area. Or down to the Alpine Loop and hike to Stewart Falls or see Timpanogoes Cave. (make reservations, very popular -and a steep hike up)

You can also check out mountaintravelcompany.com

They have a really cool site that gives travelers a way to look at local activities and tours provided by outfitters and reserve online. Kind of like looking at all of the rack brochures found in stores in mountain towns but all online. pretty cool.

There is also lots of hiking, biking...one of my favorite things to do in August is to walk down Main street in the evening, there is usually lots of music and it's fun to window shop - it's just got a good vibe.

Also August is a great time to fly fish because there are so many hatches on the Provo River, which is only about 15 minutes away from Park City. Our company, Utah Pro Fly Fishing Private Tours, offers "no fish, no pay" results too.

In August, there will be many outdoor evening concerts. Check Mountain Stages (www.mountaintownmusic.org/…) later in the year (nothing's on the schedule yet) for a list of free concerts. There will also be big names at Deer Valley through the Bright Nights Big Stars series, and the Utah Symphony has their schedule up, which includes Mandy Patinkin in early August (visitparkcity.com/events/…). The Art Festival is also in August sometime.

Have a great time!
