Why Visiting Park City in the Fall Should Be on Your To-Do List

What is it that makes fall such a special time of the year? It’s this quiet little stretch of time in between the exciting summer season and the hectic holiday rush. The kids are heading back to school, the weather begins to cool down, and the treetops are painted with yellows, oranges, and reds. For many, autumn provides the last chance for a relaxing getaway before winter covers the ground in a blanket of snow. Residents and visitors of Park City are especially lucky during this time. Our cozy mountain town is one of the best places to be in the autumn months. Discover the many things you and your family can enjoy when you visit Park City in the fall.

What to Do When You Visit Park City in the Fall

Enjoy the Scenery

If you want to see the best art show that nature has to offer, head to the mountains in the fall. The lush green ridges are transformed into vibrant shades of crimson and gold. We suggest you take advantage of the excellent hiking and biking opportunities in town during your next fall getaway. Even during some of the chilliest autumn days, you’ll be able to keep warm with an energizing walk or bike ride through our city’s well-maintained paths. 

Explore Downtown Park City

If you haven’t spent an afternoon walking around historic downtown Park City, you’re missing out. Some of the best places to browse are in this section of town. We suggest you walk up and down Main Street and explore the shops that catch your eye. You’ll find plenty of art galleries and quaint stores that are fun to visit. We love Atticus Coffee & Teahouse, which carries a wide selection of new and used books, as well as offering a menu of smoothies, coffees, and teas. Dolly’s Book & Gifts is another excellent option. It’s over 50 years old and has become a Park City icon. 

Dine at Amazing Local Restaurants

After an afternoon of exploring scenic trails or browsing downtown Park City, you’ll have worked up an appetite. Head to one of the local restaurants to enjoy top-notch cuisine and fantastic service. One of the top restaurants in town is Riverhorse on Main, which offers playful dishes from all around the world. The chefs at Riverhorse are always updating their menu, so you’ll find something new and exciting every time you visit. If you’re in the mood for a more casual experience, Windy Ridge Cafe is a wonderful choice. The diverse menu offers hearty dishes like biscuits and gravy as well as more refined fare, like a kale salad with macerated figs. No matter your cravings, you’ll likely find something delicious that hits the spot at Windy Ridge Cafe!
