While many people may think of Park City as primarily a winter destination spot, those who wish that every day was a summer day understand that we are a city of all seasons, and when your summer journey has you seeking new adventures, our mountain village offers everything you need to hang loose and chill! This road map to your summer journey in Park City will ensure you have everything you need for the best time of your life—starting with a stay in one of our Park City Vacation Rentals summer sanctuaries!
The Perfect Weather
If you are seeking sweaty and sweltering, Park City is not the direction in which you are wanting to head! Our average daily summer temperatures run in the high 70s to the low 80s, keeping visitors warm without burning off their skin! Still warm enough to allow participation in traditional summer activities (hanging around the pool and practicing your cannonballs, for example!) but cool enough that you don’t feel as if you are being burned alive, Park City in the summertime is as close to perfect as can be.
Getting Out in Nature
The natural landscape of Park City is absolutely gorgeous, and for many people, the best way to enjoy it is in a tiny cart with golf clubs strapped to the back! Golf is a big summer sport and the courses in the area are destined to be your favorite places to land. From the simply great Park City Golf Course, our town course, to the awe-inspiring beauty and challenges offered at the Painted Valley Golf Course, the golfer’s path is clear. Spend your vacation trying out every course we have to offer!
The View from Above
Let’s be honest, summer is about being as lazy as you can, and if a round of golf seems like a way of expending too much energy just to see the views, how does a chairlift ride through the mountains sound? Offering bird’s eye views of Park City, all you have to do is sit and enjoy the ride as the scenery amazes from every spot on the chairlift!
Picnic in the Park
Although no one except that cartoon bear actually uses picnic baskets anymore, a picnic in the park is one of our favorite summer activities. City Park, located at 1354 Park Avenue, is a popular picnic spot which offers covered pavilions, picnic tables, and a charcoal grill on which you can grill your favorite meats. Let dad man the helm of the grill while mom and the kids gravitate in the direction of the playground for a few hours of fun on the swings!
Last Friday Gallery Stroll
This fun event is something that takes place on the last Friday of every month, but in the summer, it is one that shines bright! There is just something special about strolling through the streets of Park City, popping in and out of the various galleries, and examining the talented works exhibited in each shop on a cool summer’s night. Temperatures rarely rise much higher than the 50s or 60s, giving vacationers some relief from their own hometown heat and these cool temperatures seem to bring out the talents of local artists. Purchasing a piece during your stroll makes the best souvenir of all!
28 Miles of Bike Trails
Mountain bikes are called mountain bikes for a reason, and although you may not come across many mountains in your hometown, Park City offers two big mountains and over 28 miles of trails guaranteed to build the muscles in your calves while the views take your breath away! Jan’s Mountain Recreation Experts at 1600 Park Avenue offers a large selection of rental bikes and all the equipment needed to ensure your day on the trails is a safe one. If you are unsure of being able to figure out your bearings, they also offer guided tours for your biking pleasure!
A Night at the Pub
Flanagan’s on Main, located at 438 Main Street, is a popular destination year-round but the street-side patio makes it the perfect spot for some extracurricular summer fun! Inside its traditional décor brings to mind a true Irish pub from the old country and the bartenders’ perfect Guinness pours will lead you to believe nothing to the contrary! Sip on Irish treats as you dine on a traditional shepherd’s pie and soak in the ambience of a beautiful summer night in our mountain paradise. A night spent here will be one you will never forget!
Summer Is for Travel
When your journey leads you to the doorsteps of our Park City Vacation Rentals summer escapes, the doorways to fun will always be open! Reserve yours today and make this summer journey to Park City an adventure you will never forget.
