The Best Way to Live
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 ambience 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. 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 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! 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!
