Fun Things to Do While in Park City
What to do in Park City
Park City Utah offers a variety of fun things to do with your family. There are close to 400 miles of maintained trails for mountain biking and hiking. But there are numerous other family-friendly activities besides mountain biking and hiking in Park City. A trip to Park City wouldn't be complete without visiting Historic Main Street with its host of dining and plenty of options for shopping in Park City. With a wide variety of places to visit, here is a breakdown of many favorites.
Take a sled ride down the Alpine Slide’s hundreds of yards of concrete track, or try the elevated Alpine Coaster and let your hair fly.
Main Street is a bustling central corridor that is home to 100 clothing boutiques, 50 eateries, two ski resorts, and one celebrity every five minutes.
The Egyptian Theater was designed with the assistance of a trained Egyptologist after the discovery of King Tut’s tomb, and it was the host of the first ever Sundance Film Festival.
Park City wasn’t always the chic ski town it is today. Learn the whole sordid and spectacular history of the town at the Park City Museum, where you can explore a mine replica, learn how silver is made, delve into the history of radical labor unions, and ride an antique ski subway.
Woodward Park City is where chairlifts take you to the mountaintop and your only job is to get down in one piece. The 125-acre campus includes snowboarding and skiing, biking trails, skateparks, plus a 52,000-square-foot indoor training facility with a concrete skatepark, trampolines, foam pits, and more.
Park City Mountain Resort is the Swiss Alps of Utah. This high-alpine hotspot is always bumping with farmers markets, outdoor concerts and extreme rides in the summer, and snowboarding, skiing and hot cocoa sipping in winter.
If you time your visit right, you can enjoy one of the annual traditions from the Sundance Film Festival in January, the Utah Symphony/Deer Valley Music Festival throughout the summer months, to the ever-popular Kimball Arts Festival each August. You can also enjoy fly-fishing, mountain biking, hot air ballooning, horseback riding, river rafting, and golf all summer long. Park City offers so much to the vacationer or to a family that is considering a move. There is something for everyone year-round.
