Summertime in Utah: Things to Do, Part 1

For visitors and even some locals and residents in Utah, many of the best-known activities and events take place in the wintertime. These include the myriad of ski areas located a short distance from downtown Salt Lake, but there’s so much more than just skiing to find at these locations.

Our tour starts in Park City, the picturesque town just 40 minutes from Salt Lake City International Airport. The farmers markets and parades along Main Street are a good place to start, in addition to the variety of public hiking and biking trails over at Trailside and amidst some of the residential areas above Kimball Junction and Jeremy Ranch.

Then there’s the resorts themselves. Deer Valley Resort offers a good number of activities where one can work a good sweat, such as hiking and chairlift rides, mountain biking, The Summer Adventure Camp, and a variety of summer concerts located at the resort base. Some of these performances come from the Utah Symphony and their summer series for the Deer Valley Music Festival.

Immediately next to Deer Valley is the vast Park City Mountain Resort, also open for summer operations. The Park City main village and Canyons village both offer different things to do during these months. The main village has summertime lift rides, mountain biking, hiking, zip lines, the alpine slide, alpine coaster, and minigolf. Just down the road at Canyons village is more lift riding, hiking, mountain biking, minigolf/putting, and zip line tours which cross deep canyons. Park City Mountain Resort also has a summer concert series at the base of the Canyons Village, taking place in a shell on the slopeside lawn.

With parking and traffic, some of these activities can be a bit challenging to access, but we at VIP Limousine are more than happy to handle the travel logistics and avoid the parking lots. Park City, Utah is a beautiful place year-round, and now is a fantastic time to enjoy its offerings.
