- Well designed exhibits which explain the history of Park City. The museum is clean, spacious and inviting, and staff was friendly and helpful. Several exhibits were closed during our visit, but there was still plenty to see. The area has some unique history that was well presented here. Highly recommend.Written 30 September 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- With the fall colors, this was fabulous and there was a lot of different terrain to view. Only issue was that so many people were disregarding posted signs and parking alongside the road. This was both dangerous and annoying. But totally worth your time.Written 17 October 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

Really enjoyed the old townWritten 9 November 2022
- So much fun! We brought two young kids with us and they loved it!!! The line moved pretty quickly and the ride was a ton of fun!!Written 10 July 2022
- We spent a week at the Grand Summit. We've never stayed at a place that was closer to the slopes. They are literally 20 yards from the Grand Summit exit. Talk about easy!
The one bedroom floor plan we had was clean, spacious and has a full kitchen.
The employees at the Grand Summit were beyond helpful and friendly.
There are plenty of food choices at the hotel that fit all budgets as well as a very short walk to many other choices at Canyons Village.
We can't wait to get back to the Grand Summit this ski season!Written 18 October 2022
- Woodward Park City is where the cool kids hang out—and adults, too. Our group went there to snow tube and it was a blast for everyone. Buy your tickets online ($40 per person) ahead of time to ensure you don’t arrive at a peak time where they can’t accommodate you. Upon arrival, scan your bar code, grab a tube, listen to the staff give instructions and head through the electronic gate that reads your pass. No need to even remove it from your pocket to scan.
There are two sets of tubing hills, a shorter and longer set. The short one is fun but the long one is thrilling. There seemed to be just the right amount of people so that lines were never too long and wait times were minimal. Your session is two hours. Your time is not eaten up by waiting. My crew got tired before the two hours was up. PS: There is a conveyor belt that takes you to the top of the hill. Wow! Couldn’t ask for more.
Snow tubing isn’t the only thing this place has. I’m not sure I could name all the fun things to do here. It’s definitely a daredevils dream place. Check out their website to see all the fun activities available. Take a minute or two and watch the snowboarders on their course near the tubing hills. They are fun to watch as they jump, skid, and slide on all sorts of obstacles. Go for the tubing. Stay for the other fun activities.Written 23 November 2022
- My two girl friends and I had a phenomenal experience on a 90-minute trail ride in Oakley. Our guide, Tak, was friendly, educational and made us feel at ease. I would highly recommend for first-time riders!Written 15 May 2022
- Great skiing, for those skilled and also for novices

November, 2022 Visit
For Thanksgiving we visited Park City, UT and had a great time.
This was due in much part to unplanned sports fun… when we booked the trip we didn’t expect snow; then we confirmed they had 42” so we planned to enjoy some skiing on the trip.
We have Hidden Valley in town (Eureka, MO) and while it’s not a mountain, it is 5 minutes from our house, so the kids have skied there many times since grade school - they are pretty talented… my wonderful wife and I are more beginner skiers.

Vail Resorts runs many ski resorts around the world and offers an Epic Pass / season pass… they have opportunities to improve… you can order the pass online via Park City Mountain’s website… and they also have a ticket office in the building complex at the base of the mountain - the team inside, especially Jodie, is quite patient and helpful to get you what you want/need - ## visits, costs, holiday/blackout dates, etc.
- - - - - - - -
There is a variety, for beginners up to experts… 364+ ski runs, across miles and miles of mountainside.
The kids explored the black diamond runs and my wonderful wife an I stayed on the blue / green beginner slopes… “First Time” and “Easier Way.”
I personally had trouble when I went up to one of the taller, and steeper slopes… it was the last run of the day and I was having trouble turning and controlling my speed, so after a couple wipe outs I decided to just walk down. About 2/3 of the way down, I found two ski patrol team members… then all of a sudden others arrived… and McKenna helped me get somewhat better at turning… better enough to only fall one more time before getting all the way to the bottom.
THANK YOU, McKenna!

We enjoyed lunch at the cafeteria-style Legacy Cafe
- BBQ Pork
- BBQ Mushrooms
- Rice crispy treat
While a little pricy, the food was good and your Epic Pass saves you 20%.
Thank you to the Legacy Cafe restaurant team!

- some of the best in bounds terrain in UT. Slow chair and a bit of a pain to get there but usually worth the effort.Written 16 February 2020
- Lots of nice places in Park City!
If you are a music fan there is nothing like The Egyptian Theater. They have a wide range of great shows - back to the 60's and further forward. We saw Herman's Hermits and it was great! A fairly small "intimate" theater with about 500 or so seats. Check the net for upcoming shows.
A great restaurant we visited was Flanagan's On Main - great food and wonderful seating right on the main street. Also good selection of beers and mixed drinks.
The Olympic Center in town is the site of the 2002 Olympics. Small but very interesting museum and a great setting to watch the ski jumping/board stunts practice (into water so in summer) as well as high dive practice. And, if you have the nerve, a ride on a "wheeled" bobsled down the sled track. Not for the faint of heart but a unique experience.
Finally, while in town we stayed at the Park Peaks Hotel. Nice rooms and atmosphere, reasonable rate and "trendy" vibe.Written 22 June 2022
- You can board this lift easily off the main street in Park City. We had purchased the "Adult Summer Scenic Lift - All Day" pass that enabled us to ride multiple ski lifts that day in Park City.
This lift moves slowly and the round trip time to/from the city center is 90 minutes. That being said, the views are amazing and enabled us to simply soak in the scenery.
We got off the lift at the top and checked out the area that intersected with several hiking / mountain biking trails. You can re-board the chair lift and ride it back down to the town.
This is a relaxing activity if you want to chill for a little while.Written 25 September 2021
- Absolutely lovely gallery. The pieces were well displayed and beautiful. I was visiting Park City on a lark and wandered in. Joel greeted me and was so knowledgeable and helpful with details about all the pieces. I didn’t feel out of place, or pressured to buy. When I left, he offered services on the website I hadn’t thought about. Truly, take a look.Written 6 July 2022
- We stopped in at the Tanger outlet to look for some sunglasses. Mine had been broken during the flight to Salt Lake City. The Tommy Hilfiger store was extremely helpful in lining me up with a replacement pair.
My wife found a Talbot outlet that was having a fantastic sale. This was quite timely as her sizes had changed recently, so a new wardrobe was very welcome.
Unfortunately, due to economic downturns, several stores (Brooks Brothers, Ann Taylor) were closed.
I imagine this outlet would be packed for Christmas holiday shopping!Written 6 September 2020
- great trail for our rented mountain bikes. Beware, while the grade is not steep - being an abandoned rail line - it is constant so e-bikes are recommendedWritten 30 June 2020
