“It was a beautiful bright autumn day, with air like cider and a sky so blue you could drown in it.” (D. Gabaldon)

When autumn comes and the leaves begin to fall from the trees, even Wasatch Front residents can’t help but plan an intentional Park City get away to rejuvenate before the winter season arrives. The blue of the autumn skies next to the gold of the foliage is the perfect backdrop to relax a little before the days shorten and the holidays head our way. 

We have a few tips below to help you plan your last minute trip to Park City this fall. A one or two night stay in any one of the lodging properties located in Historic Park City is first on the to-do list when putting together your Park City stay / (va) cation. 

  • A boutique suite at Main & Sky offers your choice of spa and wellness treatments, views of the mountains through floor to ceiling windows, and the opportunity to just relax by your fireplace.
  • Your choice of a junior suite, 1-bedroom or 2-bedroom condos await at the Treasure Mountain Inn conveniently located at the top of Main Street. We’re not sure if the adults or kids love the oversized spa more?
  • Check out the Summit Watch Marriott on Lower Main Street. This spot is a family favorite!
    Take a look at all of the lodging options in the area and select the one that works best for you.

Once you settle on where you are staying, you’ll want to decide where you’ll dine. We often hear how impressed visitors are with the quality of cuisine found in Historic Park City, and we think you’ll agree. 

  • Longtime favorite Riverhorse on Main won’t disappoint with your choice of an Alaskan Halibut or Filet Migon, followed by the Dutch peach cake with hot butterscotch poured on top and a side of ice cream.
  • For a late night cocktail, visit High West Saloon and have a taste of the seasonal High West Peach Vodka, made of peaches hand-picked the day they are perfectly ripe.
  • Or, stroll the street and decide on something that smells divine or browse options here. There truly are too many options to share in a blog post.

Of course, no visit to Park City is complete without a shopping session on Main Street before heading back home. From boots to bronze, we know you’ll find the perfect keepsake to remember your fall trip to Park City.
