A Summer Day in Park City with Your Family
— Posted by Park City on April 18, 2018
The best thing about Park City in the summer is there is so much to do! To help you navigate all the options, we have put together the perfect summer day itinerary for your family.
Start your day at Park City Mountain Village
Breakfast: Head to Jupiter Java for the best part of the day. Mom and Dad can get their coffee fix while the kids munch on fresh baked pastries. Jupiter Java is located on the first floor of Legacy Lodge, next to PayDay Express and is spot to kick off your day.
Mid-Morning (Option #1): With kids under 10 years old, take a ride on Crescent Express. This scenic chairlift ride will allow you to sit back and enjoy the ride. Once you get off at the top, take a moment to take in the views of the Wasatch and Uinta Mountain Ranges. From there, take a hike along the groomed access roads and learn about our mining heritage. And be sure to keep an eye out for wildlife and wild flowers, all the way until the trail leads you back into the village.
Mid-Morning (Option #2): Or, for kids over the age of 10, you'll want to head over to Legacy Sports and get your family geared up with rental mountain bikes! Once our experienced staff has you outfitted, take a ride up Crescent Express to haul you and your bikes up the mountain. Pick any of the abundant trails on the trail map and away you go. (Hint: Mojave to Mid-Mountain to Jenni’s is an awesome route and a great way to get back to the base area.)
Lunch: At this point, your family will be starting to get hungry! Crescent Burger is located right in the middle of all the summer activities and a great option for a family lunch. They have made
After Lunch: Trust us, there's way more to explore! For your little ones, check out the Adventure Park to try your luck at gem panning or get your muscles moving on the climbing wall or kids' rope course. But for older children, you don’t want to miss the a ride on one of the longest Alpine Slides in the world. There are four tracks to choose from so you have a new option each time you ride. And finally, top it off with a ride together on the Alpine Coaster, which reaches speeds of 30 mph as it coasts more than a mile down the mountain.
Then head to Canyons Village for even more fun!
Mid-Afternoon: For the second half of the afternoon, take the bus or ride your bikes over to Canyons Village. Take a scenic Gondola ride up to the Red Pine Lodge and head over to the Red Pine or Epic Zip Tour. Fly across the canyon between Lookout Peak and Red Pine Lodge, spanning 2,111 feet. This is one of the most popular and exciting summer activities.

This is a family-friendly environment that is sure to please even the pickiest of eaters. Enjoy a your well-deserved meal together and catch the mountain sunset before you end your day.
