Late November in Park City is a magical affair. You’ll be glad you came to see us on your Thanksgiving break! A city as community oriented as we are is the perfect place to spend a holiday where family is such an important aspect. We’re like one big family here. There’s so much to do while you’re here too!
Take one of the many scenic drives in the area, like Guardsman Pass, a short 14-mile drive that the family will love. If you’re looking for something longer and more adventurous, take the Alpine Scenic Loop, a 27-mile drive that will take around 2.5 to 3.5 hours and will have the whole family fawning over the breathtaking scenery going by the windows outside. You can even visit Timpanogos Caves and Cascade Springs along the way.
Check out the art scene in Park City while you’re here too. Stroll through Historic Main Street’s art galleries and shops and enjoy the many kinds of art featured here. You’ll also get an opportunity to pick up some souvenirs as well. That’s a great way to show thanks to a friend back home!
Adventures to Be Had in the Outdoors
You can also explore Park City by biking, hiking, or horseback around the area. There are countless trails around Park City. Try the Historic Pacific Union Trail! If you really want to get adventurous, take the family on a hot air balloon ride with Skywalker Balloon Company or Bigfoot Balloons. That will make for one vacation they never forget!
Your Thanksgiving Day
If you’d rather not cook on your vacation, you can dine out at one of our favorite restaurants in town: Riverhorse on Main. But it’s also a great idea to spend your Park City Thanksgiving Day in your cozy rental home with all your loved ones by your side. With the kitchen amenities provided to you, you’ll be able to craft a delicious home-cooked meal for the family to enjoy and sit down to eat together and give thanks in a gorgeous and spacious home.

November in Park City is a beautiful time of year. By this time of year, the mountains are covered in snow and the little city becomes a skier’s paradise. Here are some of the ways you can spend your long Park City Thanksgiving Weekend.
Spend Your Weekend on the Mountain
Thanksgiving is the first weekend Park City Mountain Resort opens its chairlifts for skiing and snowboarding. The resort is spread out over 7,300 acres of alpine wilderness making it the largest ski resort in North America. Park City Mountain has more than 348 trails, 41 lifts, 8 terrain park, and dozens of restaurants for when you need to refuel. Because of its large sizes and hundreds of trails to choose from the resort is great for all levels of experience.
New to the resort this year is a free guided ski tour. The Silver to Slopes Historic Mining Tour explores the mountain’s historic mining buildings and hidden relics. Each tour is led by an experienced guide and is recommended for intermediate level skiers. The tour departs daily from the Park City Resort Base at 10 a.m. and from the Trail Map at the top of Bonanza Lift at 1 p.m. At the end of the tour, you will get a commemorative pin.
This year’s winter season is anticipated to start on November 21. The mountain is open every day from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m.
If the thought of shopping, cooking, and cleaning on your vacation sounds like something you want to avoid then you are in luck because Park City is known for its world-class cuisine.
The Brass Tag at Deer Valley Resort offers a 3-course prix fixe dinner for Thanksgiving. The meal is served on Thanksgiving from 5:30 p.m. – 9 p.m. and has a variety of dishes including prime ribs, roasted turkey, and a pumpkin tart.
Butcher’s Chop House in downtown also has a special Park City Thanksgiving dinner. The 2-course prix fixe menu is served from 2 p.m. – 11 p.m. and features traditional favorites including turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, and candied yams.
