To see Park City best in two days, spend the first day focusing your efforts on the beautiful mountains that surround the city. If you visit during the winter ski season, be sure to hit the slopes. After all, Park City is home to Deer Valley, which is one of the best mountain resorts in the country, and dozens of other top ski and snowboard resorts. If you’ve never experience the thrill of carving powder down a mountain, enroll in ski school for part of the day.
In the summer, when snow has disappeared, spend the day on a hiking or mountain biking tour — there are plenty of local companies that rent equipment and offer day trips.
When night falls, get in on the après ski scene and hit up a bar on Historic Main Street. Or, if the weather permits, attend an outdoor concert at one of the city’s many open-air performance venues. On the second day, explore the city proper. Start at Historic Main Street, where you’ll find locally owned boutiques, galleries and restaurants. Have lunch at the first restaurant that catches your eye and be sure to snag a table near a window for great people watching.
In the afternoon, visit one of the city’s museums: Kimball Art Center, Park City Museum or Alf Engen Ski Museum at Utah Olympic Park. At night, attend a performance at the Egyptian Theatre, the city’s venerable performance house, or find a movie screening to sit in on.
