“Park City late summer visit”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

We came to Park City in September for a spot of hiking, and as a more pleasant spot from which to explore Salt Lake City on the odd daily excursion. Having just been in the Lake Tahoe area (hiking the Desolation Wilderness), Mammoth Lakes (and ALL that has to offer), and the Great Basin National Park (another great hike to the ancient bristlecone pines & glacier), we felt Park City was a bit of a let-down. Pretty enough, but it doesn't offer the scale or the vertical extent. We hiked Bald Mountain from Deer Valley, and the Mid-Mountain trail, but felt that we'd then kinda seen it all. Maybe better for mountain-biking...

“Park Silly Sunday is a day full of fun and entertainment”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

Great entertainment with lots of fun booths to shop til you drop. We saw a wonderful puppet show with the most beautiful puppets we have ever seen. Great selection of bands and lots for the kid to take part in.

“Park City is at its best in the "off-season!"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

Forget the skiing, crowds and snow during the winter and come to Park City in the summer!!!! The options you can find here for outdoor recreation are even more abundant. Fishing, hiking, biking, exploring and outdoor activities makes this an ideal location and great option for getting out of the summer heat. If you are a hiker, the mid-mountain trail from Deer Valley ski resort all the way to the Park City resort (or even out to the junction) is a wonderful way to spend 4+ hours, taking you through some of the most beautiful scenery around. Get a map, though, before you hit the trails. Don't miss the Alpine Slide at the Park City resort. Prices are very high, but worth the cost. A daily pass is a great option to get the best value.

“Family Fun!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

There are several choices to choose from. Everyone in the family can find something to do, even grandpa who just wants to sit on the bench and watch as everyone else uses the zip line, coasters, merry-go-round, etc. Fun for all.

We live in Las Vegas and take a week in August to head to the Mt's to get away from the heat of the desert and enjoy the clear mountain air and its natural beauty!
