Most families opt for a beach vacation in the summer. We recommend taking a trip to the mountains instead! There’s just as much natural beauty, sunlight, and exciting things to do and see. It’s an especially easy choice for a Salt Lake City to Park City getaway!
1. Utah Olympic Park
Visit Utah Olympic Park during your summertime trip to Park City. This park was built to commemorate the 2002 Winter Olympic Games in Salt Lake City. Olympic Park allows guests of all ages to test their athleticism in the spirit of friendly competition! Enjoy ziplining, rock climbing, ropes courses, airbag jumps, and more. A trip to Olympic Park is the thrill that your summer vacation needs. Purchase the day passes to try a little of everything that the park has to offer.
2. Park City Alpine Slide
The Park City Alpine Slide is a summertime favorite for locals and visitors alike. This luge-style slide sends riders down and around 3,000 feet of track. Each sled is controlled by individual riders via a handbrake. So, you can travel as slowly or quickly as you wish, with only gravity working against you. Can’t get enough of that gut-dropping feeling?
