Just short 30 minute drive away from the Salt Lake City is the quaint town of Park City. The downtown is like the inside of a snowglobe with cabins and Christmas lights. I spent a weekend with friends in this ski resort town in April.
Food & Accommodations
We came to the consensus that every meal we had was mediocre and overly salty, perhaps explained by our proximity to the Salt Lake. We ate from 4 star (Yelp stars, not Michelin) restaurant like Vinto to local favorites like the Junction. The best food was probably a breakfast from No Worries Cafe and the complimentary breakfast at our hotel, the Best Western Plus on Landmark. Staff were friendly and rooms were clean so no complaints here but nothing to write home (or here) about either.
We took a 10 mile loop, which pretty much offer the same view of the Olympic Park across the freeway. The narrow rocky path seem more popular with mountain bikers than hikers. Some wildlife can be found but nothing spectacular.
Here you will find a free two story museum about the winter sports. There is also an array of outdoor activities like ziplining, drop zones, and obstacle course which we did not get to do any of because we happened to go there on a Monday, the only day those are closed. So instead, we ventured around the bobsled track and sat atop a rusty bobsled. I hope the real competitors’ sled were in better shape because looking down the track is not for the faint hearted. And the ski jump looks even scarier.
