There is nothing worse than visiting an outdoor paradise such as Park City and being rained out with nonstop rainstorms. Luckily, rainfall in Park City in the summer season is uncommon. Even if you do come across some rain clouds during your stay, there are plenty of exciting indoor activities found only in Park City. You can easily hide out for a few hours while having tons of fun. Take a look at some of our favorite rainy day activities in Park City:
Visit the Park City Museum
When it comes to Park City, most individuals know it as a vacation destination. Park City features tons of outdoor activities and attractions to explore during all seasons. Whether you want to go skiing in the winter or kayaking in the summer, there is something for you here to enjoy. What many people may not know about Park City is its historical roots. Park City was developed in 1868 after silver was found in the area. The city became a mining boom town and the rest, they say, is history. You can learn all about Park City’s rich history by spending some time at the Park City Museum. This perfectly sized museum is located downtown and is inviting any day of the week. You will learn all about the town’s mining roots and eventual transition into a ski hub through interactive exhibits. You will find each topic to be engaging and keep you hooked from start to finish. Come visit the Park City Museum located at 528 Main Street in downtown. The museum is open daily from 11:00 AM to 5:00 PM.
Try Out Spirits from High West Distillery
When it comes to great cocktails and just straight up good whiskey you cannot go wrong with High Distillery. You may have seen their spirits at your local grocery store. High West Distillery is located right here in Park City with two different locations for you to visit. A rainy day is the perfect occasion to go whiskey sampling and try out some delicious food.

All of these exciting rainy day activities will be waiting for you here in Park City. Get ready for your stay by reserving one of our exclusive vacation rentals in the area today!
If there is a single season of the year that you should visit Park City, it has to be winter. Park City is home to some of Utah’s greatest skiing conditions and slopes. In addition to skiing and snowboarding, you can find a variety of activities that will make for a memorable vacation getaway. Take a look at how you can plan for the best winter adventure with these Park City activities:
Hit the Slopes
We cannot overstate how incredible skiing and snowboarding are here up in Park City. For decades, the region has been home to many Winter Olympic athletes who continue to train the next generation. Park City Mountain offers everything you need for another thrilling ride down the slopes. This local mountain features over 7,300 acres of skiable terrain making it the largest ski resort in the country. Park City Mountain is known for powdery snow, towering trees, and moguls to perfect your skills. There are so many slopes that you can ski or snowboard all day and still not hit the same trail twice. Beginners can start with an introductory lesson that will help them understand the basics. Shallow slopes will then perfect their skill before attempting steeper slopes that are perfect for experienced riders. Speaking of experience, Park City Mountain also features winter parks that consist of rails, half-pipes, steep jumps, and fixed features allowing you to show off your skills. Park City Mountain has everything you need from lift tickets, rental equipment, lessons to take care of all your skiing and snowboarding needs. Best of all, our vacation rentals are just a short distance away from the mountain!
Hit the Winter Tundra by Snowmobile
The surrounding region is just begging to be explored during the winter season. You can do just that by booking a snowmobile reservation with North Forty Escapes here in Park City. Their 10,000-acre ranch lets you have plenty of private land to explore by snowmobile. These vehicles are top of the line and are perfect for families looking for a rush. If snowmobiling is not for you then book a dogsledding experience instead. These huskies are bred for the thrill of mushing and will be overjoyed for some pets after your ride is over. Now that is one unique way to see Park City!
Hit the Mountain Bike Trails
Just because it is winter does not mean you cannot enjoy the outdoor trails here in Park City. Sure, you can hike the trails on foot, but where is the fun in that? Instead, reserve a snow bike that is designed to take you across the snow with ease. Park City has over 400 miles of preserved mountain bike trails. These snow bikes feature fat tires that will allow you to keep pedaling. Since it is cold outside you will want to stick with your winter ski gear; anything that is water resistant is always a plus. Popular trails can be found around Willow Creek and Round Valley. You can find rental bikes at Jans Mountain Outfitters and All Seasons Adventures right here in Park City.
Beat the Cold in Park City Museum
If you are looking to escape the cold, head on over to Park City Museum where you can find incredible exhibits that highlight the origins of the city. You will learn how mining brought together the original inhabitants of Park City; the original jail cell is found still intact here at the museum. Hands on activities are perfect for the kids while short films will educate everyone in the family. Stop by the Park City Museum Wednesday through Sunday from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM.
Hit the Escape Room
There is nothing better than coming together as a family and overcoming the challenges found at Escape Room Park City. This local attraction is like similar escape rooms, you are placed into a locked room with a handful of clues and are given an hour to get out. This activity will put your brains to the test as you navigate for thoughtfully placed clues around the room. Escape Room Park City features a variety of rooms to choose from all with unique and exciting themes. The staff on hand will be there to help you every step of the way and document your triumphs. Escape Room Park City is open Monday through Thursday from noon to 8:30 PM, Friday from noon to 9:45 PM, Saturday from 11:00 AM to 9:45 PM, and Sunday from 11:00 AM to 8:30 PM.

Generally, we only tend to write about the fun things to do and the delicious places to eat while visiting Park City. We love our guests, and it makes us happy to see them having a good time. But every so often, something comes up that is dear to our hearts and we just can’t keep it to ourselves; Live PC Give PC is one of those things. Every year in November, we in Park City set aside 24 hours for giving to those who are less fortunate or to those who are dedicated to preservation of our national resources.
You Don’t Have to Wait for the Live PC Give PC on November 9th
At this time, there are six different charities available, but you can perform an online search to find one that is closer to your heart if the ones you see don’t make you happy. Current charities include the following: Park City Community Foundation with the proceeds going to the people of Park City who need it most; the Summit Land Conservancy, a NPO dedicated to the preservation of Osguthorpe Farm; and Save Our Canyons, a charity that works their hardest to keep our canyons safe for today’s and future generations.
The remaining three NPO’s you can donate to during this worthy campaign include the South Summit Trails Foundation, Summit Community Gardens, and our personal favorite, Tennyson. Tennyson is actually not a charity, but a young boy who has dedicated his life to helping others; he has donated the money in his piggy bank, his earnings from the tooth fairy, and works side jobs for the neighbors to earn more for the cause that is dear to his heart, and when you press the donate button on his page, your dollars will go to the Summit Land Conservancy.
The Live PC Give PC event asks for a minimum $5 donation but hopes that you will give much more. If you’re in town during this worthy event, or other Park City events, why not join the celebration party held at the High West Saloon later that night? Admission is free, but there will be a cash bar for those who have reached the drinking age!
Even if you aren’t in the city on November 9th (although we hope you are!), you can donate online at https://www.livepcgivepc.org/search.The website is open now, so if you’re worried you will forget, donate now instead of waiting till the last moment or missing out on this year’s opportunity altogether.
It Feels Good to Do Good
As you look around your Park City Vacation Rentals luxury home, the warm feeling you have in heart will be in part due to your giving nature and in part due to the beauty of your surroundings. Reserve yours today, and enjoy this and other Park City events!
As the end of the year grows closer, we start to get excited for one of our favorite holidays, and believe it or not, it’s NOT Christmas. We start planning for our Park City Halloween even before the heat of summer has passed. We know what’s important in life: It’s the costumes our dogs are going to wear to the annual Howl-O-Ween celebration on Main Street! This annual event will bring a smile to your heart and works to bring family and fur babies closer together with a lighthearted take on a traditionally spooky holiday!
Park City Halloween Main Street: From Park City to Bark City
Historic Main Street is the only place to be during a Park City Halloween, as the blacktop that usually sports fancy cars and pickup trucks is crowded with costumed revelers and their pets. Young Mary’s prance by proudly with shepherd’s hooks and shih tzu’s decked out in their best little lamb costumes, green garbed Grinches holding on to their reindeer antler bedecked Maxes, and giant bottles of ketchup and mustard walk behind their wiener dog on a bun. These are just a few of the exotic costumes you can expect to see in a unique celebration of the holiday that helps keep us young!
The street party precedes the annual Park City Halloween Main Street parade and offers treats and laughs for all participants, and once the parade starts, the costumed canines and their human counterparts are welcome to march along! Costing nothing for participation, making it a great vacation budget friendly activity, the fun continues late into the cold fall night, and although there is no official costume contest, it’s always fun to conduct your own unofficial contest to determine whose costume combination you think is the best! Will it be the stegosaurus Scottish terrier and his kilt wearing, bagpipe playing master? Or how about Leo the Labrador lion being led by the circus lion tamer carrying a chair and a whip? Yoda the Yorkie taken prisoner by a gang of two stormtroopers? Every year is different, and every costume is original; which will be your favorite in 2018?
Park City Halloween Treats Taste Even Better When Shared Late at Night
Your fully equipped Park City Vacation Rentals home offers the perfect spot for a late-night rendezvous with the Reese’s Cup of your dreams, and while chocolate is bad for your pampered pooch, if you’re staying in one of our pet friendly rentals, a gourmet dog biscuit will be much appreciated by Fido! Reserve one of our luxury vacation homes today and celebrate the holiday with your ENTIRE family!
