Top Sights in Park City

Park City’s Historic Downtown

The free bus system makes it easy to reach many Park City attractions, including a visit to the town’s historic downtown Main Street. Once you arrive, visit any one of the over 200 boutique shops, spas, bars, and restaurants. Many of the locals like to spend their time here, so feel free to strike up a conversation. They’ll be happy to let you in on their favorite hiking trail or ski run.

Deer Valley

While Park City Ski Resort holds its own in terms of great skiing, Deer Valley is a clear equal in terms of quality slopes and outstanding mountain ranges. What’s more, this ski area consistently grooms its runs and limits access to the mountain to prevent overcrowding. Apologies to snowboarders, however, who are not allowed to ski the mountain. You’ll need to head over to Park City to carve your turns.

Utah Olympic Park

For the Olympian spirit that lives in all of us, you’ll truly enjoy a visit to Utah Olympic Park, where several events were hosted during the Salt Lake 2002 Winter Games. This is the holding ground where many of today’s Olympic hopefuls train throughout the year for the chance to a gold medal. For those who enjoy hiking and biking, you can climb the trails that surround the park and get a thrillingly different view of the bobsled track from above.

Top Experiences in Park City

Go on a New Winter Adventure

Thought mountain biking was only for the summer? Think again. Experience a different kind of winter adventure on a snow bike tour that can take you over 400 miles of maintained trails and into the nearby Uinta Mountains. If you decide to go on your own, you can rent a fat tire bike made for snow from any local rental location and enjoy easy going trails like Round Valley or Historic Rail. Just be sure to check weather conditions before you go.

Wine and Mine Your Way Around

Enjoy an educational and fun way to sample local wines on a tour featuring wines and mines. This unique tour transports you to various historic mines, tunnels and mining towns near Park City and pairs each stop with a different quality wine. It’s a great way to experience the history that shaped the area while introducing you to some new flavors. Guests are required to be 21 years old or over.

Take a Scenic Drive

Depending on how much time you can spend during your visit, many of our Park City vacation rentals are located in the perfect place to go on a scenic drive. Guardsman Pass is only 14 miles long and can connect you back to Salt Lake City or towards Wasatch Mountain State Park. For a longer excursion, pick the Alpine Scenic Loop, which is a 27-mile trip and passes by Robert Redford’s Sundance Resort.
