Park City might not be very hot in the summer when compared to other vacation destinations—in fact it is downright comfortable—but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy some cool Park City desserts in the warmer weather! Check out some of the best ways to stay cool in Park City this summer.

Grab a Morning Coffee at Java Cow Coffee & Ice Cream

Start the morning off by stopping in for a delicious scone, danish, or a mini muffin as the sun is just starting to rise over the mountains. On warm summer days, you’ll want to make that coffee an iced one. There’s nowhere better to grab one that at Java Cow Coffee.

Spend the Day Stand-Up Paddleboarding

After you’ve caffeinated up for the day, head down to the water for some watery fun to beat the heat in style. It doesn’t matter if you’ve never been paddleboarding before. Park City Outfitters can match up with the right sized gear, and lessons are also available to all age groups and experience levels. This is a great water sport for beginners because it takes less finesse and learning time than sports like sailing and surfing. It’s great for family fun, or big groups of friends, or even for couples who just want to relax out on the water as the sun shines overhead. At the gorgeous Jordanelle Reservoir, there are over five miles of water to explore. You could easily while away the entire day here and wonder where all the time went!

Grab an Ice-Cold Drink in the Afternoon at the No Name Saloon

All that paddleboarding activity will be enough to leave you starving. Pick between awesome appetizers like Roasted Red Pepper Hummus and Buffalo Wings, and balance it out with a cold lunch option, like the filling Salmon Salad, or the Blackened Shrimp Salad. Top it off with a fruity summer wine like the Zonin Prosecco, the honey-apple flavors of the Sonoma-Cutrer Chardonnay, or get a bottle of the Colombia Crest Cabernet to share with your sweetheart.

Cool Off in the Evening with Delicious Dolcetti Gelato!

This gelato joint is a lifelong favorite among locals, and it’s the absolute best way to end a warm summer’s day in Park City. Try out the fun Pistachio flavor, or the Strawberry Balsamic, or the Coconut Sticky Rice. The decor is adorable, the stall is small-town friendly, and you’ll undoubtedly leave here with a smile on your face.
