Welcome Autumn's arrival in this historic mining town

Adventure comes easy in Park City, Utah, even when there’s no snow on the ground. You might know this wintery destination for its ski resorts and sky-high slopes, but there’s so much more to see and do before the first snowflake falls.

Here’s how to fill three action-packed days in Park City during the fall.

Day One


The weather is beautiful in Park City this time of year, making it easy to start your stay with some much-deserved time in the sun. Get your adrenaline pumping on an Exclusive Excursions Float and Zipline tour, where you’ll navigate the Provo River by raft, then zip across blue skies for nearly a mile of breathtaking views of Mount Timpanogos and Provo Canyon. Round out the experience with lunch along the river.


Keep the momentum going by renting rechargeable bicycles from Pedego Electric Bikes, a great way to get out and explore the downtown Park City area and any of the countless mountain trails in full bloom this time of year.


Take a beat by filling your belly with the area’s best seasonal cuisine courtesy of Gourmand Food Tours. You’ll stop by four of Park City’s best restaurants and a beloved bakery for dessert to get a true taste of mountain life.

Day Two


Park City’s neighboring rivers and streams are brimming with trout in the fall. Take an expert-led fishing trip with Trout Tales Fly Fishing Excursions along Utah’s Blue Ribbon streams and rivers just minutes from Park City’s main drag to see if you can hook the catch of the day. At the very least, you’ll enjoy the peaceful tranquility and beautiful scenery in the process.


Make yourself at home back in Park City proper at Sunrise Lodge, a Hilton Grand Vacations Club where you can take a dip in the pool while taking in the stunning mountain views. Better yet, cook up your freshly caught trout on one of the BBQ grills or in the comfort of your private kitchen.


Head downtown to shop the quaint boutiques, admire the art galleries, and grab a bite at one of the award-winning restaurants located along historic Main Street.

Day Three


Start the day slowly with a cup of coffee at Atticus Coffee & Teahouse, where you can leaf through new and used paperbacks and coffee table books while you get your caffeine fix.

Then hit the road for a scenic mountain drive on the Guardsman Pass, Provo Canyon Scenic Byway, Alpine Scenic Loop or Mirror Lake Highway where you can stop at the many scenic overlooks to snap a photo of the wildflowers and changing foliage.


If you really can’t get enough of the beautiful views (and we bet you can’t!), take a hot air balloon ride for a birds-eye perspective of the city and mountains below.


Do dinner at 710 Bodega, where you can fill up on tapas and sangria, then go for a nightcap at No Name Saloon, set in an early 20th century mercantile building for added Park City charm.

You’ll love your fall Park City stay so much, we bet you’ll want to come back again. Take a look at our winter Park City guide before you pack your bags.
