My husband and I spent a week at the Hilton Grand Vacations Sunrise at Escala, Park City, UT in early September. The amenities of the resort were of the best quality. including stainless steel appliances and comfortable furniture. Park City is known primarily as a skiing destination, but it should not be overlooked as a summer vacation destination. The mountains are beautiful for leisurely walks and hikes. A gondola ride up the mountain also brings bikers an opportunity for mountain biking. The city has Sunday "Silly" Markets and an abundance of art galleries and restaurants to visit. Several scenic drives can be taken in the area. We drove through Guardsman Pass just outside of Park City. Bring a camera to capture beautiful views of evergreens and aspens. The resort does not have a restaurant, but visitors are only minutes' walking distance from restaurants. Other restaurants are available in Old Town Park City. Markets and shopping centers are close by and in-unit kitchens are well supplied for cooking meals. The resort is conveniently located for a visit to Salt Lake City--about a half hours' drive. The Latter Day Saints' Temple is of historical importance to the area, so Temple Square is worth a visit. Walking through Red Butte Garden at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City is a pleasant way to spend an afternoon. Utah is home to several national parks. A day trip to Arches National Park in Moab in the state's desert area will surprise you with its incredible, colorful rock formations (including the famous arch on Utah license plates). Be sure to get out of your car and walk the paths to see some beautiful vistas. Camping is available in the park with prior reservations. Wyoming and Idaho are also nearby if you are inclined to do more exploration of our country's mountain states. Other points of interest for Olympic fans are the venues for the 2002 Winter Olympics in the Park City area and other sites. There are opportunities to view future Olympians practice at these sites. Park City is a wonderful place for a family vacation. Summer activities are just as much fun as winter sports with fewer crowds. The highways are easily traversed and a variety of activities are available. Keep this destination in mind when you are planning your next vacation.
