Take a Hike or Ride a Bike
This is the perfect time of year to enjoy the mountain surroundings. Take a hike or bike ride through the gorgeous leaves. You can find trails that will meet anyone’s expertise levels, so you will truly love getting to know the area.
Enjoy it From Above
This is the perfect time of year to enjoy a hot air balloon ride. In fact, as the weather turns to the chilly side, you will see more and more of these colorful crafts dotting the sky. You’ll float high above the land where you can get a completely different perspective, and of course, you will love the traditional champagne toast.
Take in the Bounty of the Harvest
The farmers’ markets and roadside stands offering local produce and harvests will be in full swing. You can pick up some fresh veggies, jams, jellies, and more to take back to your lodging from Park City Rental Properties to whip up a tasty and delightful meal!
Go for a Drive
The areas surrounding Park City are full of terrific areas that can be discovered by car. Take a drive on the Alpine Loop near Sundance Resort. Watch the leaves change with a drive through the Uintas; don’t miss the lakes, which will be ringed by forests of colors. If you want to go for a leisurely drive, just go out to Heber, Midway, Oakley, or Kamas. These are pretty little towns where you just might find a treasure or two.
At Park City Rental Properties, we strive to make your visit memorable, so just ask a team member about these or other great activities. And don’t forget: This is a great time to make reservations for your winter ski/snowboard vacation!
