As we grow older, we really begin to appreciate our friends that have been there for us, the ones that celebrate with us during the good times and mourn with us during the bad. Although there are many reasons you could be planning this guys’ getaway to Park City, do you really need any other? For those men who have stood with you, cried with you (in a manly way, of course) or simply have been that voice on the other end of the phone without hesitation, this guide to your gentleman’s journey will help you thank them in the style they deserve!
Day 1: It Might Be Obvious
If you’re visiting Park City during the winter, what better way is there to spend your first day than on the slopes? Skiers have the choice between the two resorts, Park City Ski Resort at 1430 Lowell Avenue or Deer Valley Ski Resort at 2250 Deer Valley Drive S; snowboarders are resigned to Park City Ski Resort only, as Deer Valley is a ski-only resort. Lift tickets can be purchased online in advance at both websites.
A Different Kind of Cold
After your first day on the slopes, you may discover that the winter jacket that works just fine in your own hometown is actually kind of useless against the Park City winter chill, and although shopping really isn’t your thing, a trip to Patagonia at 632 Main Street may be in order! The good news is that Patagonia has more than just warm coats; it is a sporting goods store that has just about everything you might need for all your Park City adventures! Backpacks and camelbacks for hiking, baseball caps and polo shirts for golfing, and since you absolutely have to be there, a small souvenir section for choosing a small gift for your family back home. All this and so much more can be found in Patagonia!
Day 2: Mountain Bike Activities To Do In Park City
What better way to thank your ride and die friends than with a day on the Rail Trail shredding the hills? This aggressive trail stretches out for 30 miles, starting at the Prospector area and continuing on along what once was a railroad route to Echo Junction. This relatively flat ride does offer some elevation gains and some breathtaking views.
Time to Refuel
After all the effort you’ve put into a day on the mountain bike trails, you and your posse are definitely going to develop quite an appetite, one that only Baja Cantina can conquer! Located at 1355 Lowell Avenue, warm chips and spicy salsa will keep the roaring of your stomach to a low growl, and the meals, including their much-loved chimichangas created with your choice of meat, onions, and cheese rolled in a giant flour tortilla then deep-fried to golden perfection and served with all the traditional side dishes found at a Mexican restaurant, will easily fill the empty space in your stomach!
Day 3: No Fish, No Pay
Yes, you read that correctly. When you book a fly-fishing trip through Utah Pro Fly Fishing, 136 Heber Avenue #204, if you don’t catch any fish, you don’t have to pay any money! Offering instruction as well as leading you to the places the trout bite the hardest (They are MOTIVATED to ensure you catch your limit!) this fly-fishing guide service is one of the more popular guys’ getaway activities to do in Park City Utah!
Day 4: Battling the Rapids
This warmer weather activity offers supreme bragging rights. You and your crew will spend your 4th day in Park City battling Class III drop-offs and sliding through some powerful rapids. Offering two-hour tours for those who just want a taste of the thrills, their full-day trips will probably be more to your taste.

Day 5: Point Us to the Pub
A guys’ trip would not be complete without a night out on the town, and while the club life is active in Park City, some nights are just meant to be spent in the pubs. The Cabin, located at 825 Main Street, is one of our favorite watering holes offering craft beers, tasty pub food, and live music in a low-key atmosphere.
Another popular spot to hang out with the dudes requires no name; as a matter of fact, it is known as the No Name Saloon! Located just down the road from the cabin at 447 Main Street, this local fave is located inside a 1905 brick building that was once a popular mercantile. Offering a full bar, a huge menu filled with your favorite pub grub and some new dishes that will soon be your favorites, and a welcoming atmosphere, it will soon become obvious as to why No Name is consistently voted the best bar in Park City!
Day 6: Fore!
As your journey draws closer to the end, we still have one last adventure for you and your friends to experience: a day on the links, punctuated with a visit to the 19th hole! Golfing at Park City Golf Course is just one of the many activities to do in Park City Utah, promising a full day of fun during your summer visit to town.
Promontory Pete Dye Canyon Course, 8417 N Ranch Club Trail #4941
If you are looking for a golf experience you will remember for years to come, a visit to our Promontory Pete Dye Canyon Course is the direction you should be facing! Voted the second-best course in the state of Utah by Golf Digest, this course is challenging without being intimidating and offers some of the best views of the Utah landscape.
