It’s hard to believe, but we blinked twice and yet another year has flown by. It’s been an interesting one, to say the least. You’ve worked hard, you’ve played hard, and now it’s time to say goodbye to the old year and welcome the new year with a getaway to one of our favorite places: our hometown of Park City! When you wake up to a brand-new year in one of our luxurious Park City Vacation Rentals luxury holiday escapes, you’ll do so with the knowledge that you are definitely starting this year out the right way in your Park City rental!
No, you don’t need warm wood floors, plush furnishings, and views of Park City that will take your breath away to enjoy your New Year’s celebration to the fullest, but it doesn’t hurt if you do! Keep the champagne on ice in one of our fully equipped kitchens, where high-end appliances make whipping together a tray of hors d’oeuvres easy and fun. Many of our homes come with fireplaces that add a practical yet romantic ambiance to the living areas; a slow dance in front of the fire on one of the more romantic nights of the year is never a bad idea. A toast at midnight and a kiss shared on the patio, and then it’s off to the bedroom, where soft beds offer the perfect place to wake on that first day of the new year. Cocooned in the warm of super soft blankets, it’s ok to grab another 10 minutes of sleep!
Celebrate in Style in Your Park City Rental
As nice as our New Year’s rentals are, chances are you will still want to get out on the town and celebrate with the crowds, and Park City is the perfect place to do so! A glitzy celebration in the Kokopelli Ballroom at the Grand Summit offers dining, dancing, live entertainment, and an opportunity to rub shoulders with other beautiful people, and when the balloons drop at midnight, your favorite traveling partner will be there to greet the new year with you! Fireworks at midnight is another wonderful sight to behold and is a part of the celebration at Canyons Village (canceled for 2020). Depending on which Park City Utah rental you have chosen for your vacation home away from home, you just may be able to enjoy the show from the balcony of your place!
When the Party is Over
New Year’s Day is often quiet, as we recuperate from a night of over-indulgence, but when spent in Park City, you may find yourself eager to get out there and explore! Maybe an invigorating hike along the Round Valley Trail, located just a bit northeast of old town Park City, is the adventure you’ve been looking forward to. Offering 700 acres of a protected area, this year’s hike to good health may morph into a snowshoe hike; it’s easier to navigate on snowshoes than in your normal hiking boots, and snowshoes can be rented at any of the sporting stores in the area. Fat tire biking is also a popular winter sport, especially for the daredevils in our group, with these unique bikes rented from the local sporting stores as well. Speeding up and down trails that vary in difficulty on a fat tire bike can be the most memorable way to start out your new year—just be sure that you rent the bike (or snowshoes) the day before the holiday. Not all sporting goods stores will be open on the first day of the year!
Keeping Your New Year’s Resolutions
If you’re like most of the world, you spent a few minutes on New Year’s Eve making a few resolutions for the upcoming year, but when you awake the next morning you have no idea of where to begin. Fortunately, we can help you with a few of the more common ones, starting with eating healthy outside of your Park City Utah rental! Five5eeds, 1600 Snow Creek Drive EF, offers a tasty way to eat healthy for breakfast and lunch and their coffee is world-famous! Creating dishes that aren’t just healthy, but also locally sourced and organic, it’s a husband and wife chef team that brings you incredible dishes including smashed avo & peas on toast, hotcakes topped with fresh fruits, and an acai bowl that tastes so sweet and delicious you’ll forget it’s good for you!
Your next resolution, becoming more fit, can be sustained with the hiking or fat tire biking trip we previously discussed, or, in some cases, in the privacy of your Park City New Year’s escape! Some of our properties come with a workout room right on the premises or offer a fitness center as part of the community amenities. Slip into your favorite workout clothes and start working on your fitness resolution! The third most common resolution on people’s lists is one you’ve already started following—spending more time with your family! This Park City
getaway has offered family time and special moments that will make the perfect start to a year of family togetherness!
The Most Important Resolution of All
During this time when we resolve to work out more, eat better, or spend more time with family, we often forget the most resolution of all: the one where we should be good to ourselves. No more late nights and early risings; our super comfortable beds are designed to entice you into a deep and dreamless sleep, and on vacation, you won’t need to rise at dawn. Taking quiet moments for yourself in the middle of a fantastic getaway may seem difficult, but again, our Park City Vacation Rentals New Year’s escapes are built for this! Whether you’re sitting on the deck watching the sunset, simmering in the bubbles of one of our hot tubs under the stars, or simply sitting by the window in an overstuffed chair reading a book you’ve been dying to read for years, you’ll reap the benefits of these quiet moments long after you’ve returned to the hustle and bustle of the new year and real life.
Let Yourself Have Fun!
Making snow angels in the snow that surrounds your holiday abode, buying that shiny ring you saw in the window of Park City Jewelers just because you think the emerald will bring out the green in your eyes, or renting a fat tire bike from Park City Bike Demos and riding until your legs say enough; the fun doesn’t have to end when you become a responsible adult, and when you start the new year out laughing and playing, the rest of the year will fall right in line. So, go see your favorite musical at the Egyptian Theater (Sister Act the musical is always good for a lot of laughs), stay out late and drink a little too much at the OP Rockwell Cocktail Lounge & Music Hall (rideshare services will get you home safe and sound), and be sure to laugh too loud and for too long at silly jokes! Some years are better than others, but when you start out your new year with Park City Vacation Rentals, you’re pretty much guaranteed to follow it up with a year filled with fun, love, and laughter!
