Our friends help keep us sane as we navigate through life’s troubled seas, standing by us in times of trouble, offering shoulders to cry on, and celebrating as much as we do when times are good. When that special occasion arises in your life, it’s only natural you want to thank them, and we can’t think of a better way to do so than with a girls’ getaway in Park City. Follow the guide we offer below and your adventure will be full of Park City fun activities!
Day 1: Ski Like a Pro
It’s not just the guys who love the sensation of flying down the slopes on a cold and wintry day, and because you have two options for ski resorts during your Park City vacation, you’re able to double your fun! Park City Ski Resort and Deer Valley Ski Resort offer nearly 10,000 skiable acres; snowboarders will need to stick to Park City Mountain, but skiers have their choice of both resorts!
Après Ski with the Girls
The end of a day on the slopes does not mean that the fun has ended. In fact, this can be the best part of your day as you begin the après ski section of your festivities with a visit to Rime Raw Bar. Located at 9850 Summit View Drive, Rime offers innovative drinks and an Oyster Happy Hour that is unlike any you may have imagined sampling in this land-locked mountain town!
Day 2: Pamper Yourselves – Park City Fun Activities
No self-respecting girls’ trip would be complete without a spa day, and the world-class spas available in Park City are designed to spoil! If you’re looking for a slightly different spa experience, FLOAT Park City offers an hour-long sensory deprivation tank in which you can float your cares away.
More Ways to Pamper
Choices are important in life, and if you and your entourage are seeking a full day of treating yourself, your next stop should be at Align Spa. Located at 1792 Bonanza Drive #130, this spa offers packages that last anywhere from 2 hours to 5.5 hours; this last package may be the perfect choice for bachelorette getaways! Beginning with a 90-minute massage, then moving on to a body wrap, a Moroccan Oil Hair and Scalp Treatment, and finishing up with a 90-minute deluxe facial, the spa snack served during this luxurious day of indulgence makes this choice the happiest one!
Day 3: It’s Wine Time
Another friend who stands by us in times of need is that trusty bottle of wine you always have uncapped and ready to commiserate with you; but how much do you really know about your loyal friend? Fox School of Wine offers a variety of classes, including one entitled Table for 12, that will educate you and the gals about the ins ands outs of wine etiquette.
No Schooling for You?
If you and your “girl gang” feel that you know all you need to know about wine and just want to get out there and start sipping, Old Town Cellars at 408 Main Street is where you want to be! Offering an incredible selection of wines they make, wines others make, and featuring a nice craft beer menu for those who haven’t quite developed a taste for the grape, this intimate spot is open seven days a week until 10 PM.
Day 4: Time to Give Your Credit Cards a Workout
Historic downtown Park City is home to a plethora of cute shops, stores, and some very high-end boutiques; Alaska Fur Gallery at 537 Main Street is a great place to window shop if you are not the proud owner of a Black Amex! Not far from the fur gallery is the charming Lund’s Fine Art Gallery at 591 Main Street, which features an extensive art collection and offers a delightfully authentic and intimate experience.
Day 5: A Little Culture
A night at the theater is a great way to get in a little extra bonding time during your Utah girls’ getaway, and the Egyptian Theater, located at 328 Main Street, offers history, charm, and entertainment for the entire group. Constructed in 1926, today it’s the place for live theater and musical performances. Check out what’s playing at http://www.egyptiantheatrecompany.org/.
A Fun Substitute
During pandemic times, the first thing we have learned is how to be flexible, and if the Egyptian Theater hasn’t reopened by the time you and your posse have arrived, it is ok to change directions and check out what kind of mischief you can get into at the movies! Keep it sophisticated and take in an independent movie at Park City Film, 1255 Park Avenue, or go old school with a visit to the Metropolitan Redstone Cinemas 8 located at 6030 North Market Street. Offering the latest releases and a COVID-19 safe place to escape into the fantasy world on the screen, a night at the movies will bring back memories of your teenage days spent, perhaps, with some of the very same ladies you are traveling with today!
Day 6: Take a Hike
Summer getaways are the perfect time to enjoy the beautiful views that make up the Park City landscape, and the Silver Spur Trail is one of our favorite Park City fun activities. This well-marked trail is wide enough to walk side by side with your friends, ensuring plenty of opportunities to exchange secrets and stories that will bring on an attack of the giggles.
Day 7: Sharing Secrets at Home
Your journey is just about over. Why not spend the last day enjoying the luxury amenities of your Park City Vacation Rentals vacation accommodations? With hot tubs on the porch, stone fireplaces, and views that seem to go on forever, your time spent in Park City will be never forgotten and the memories made here will be magical ones. Reserve yours today!
