Park City, UT, is known for fantastic snow that is made for skiing, snowboarding, and a range of other winter sports, from dog sledding to snowshoeing. But, if you aren’t up for hitting the slopes, there is still plenty of fun and entertainment you can enjoy here in Park City.
As local Park City realtors who have spent decades in Park City, we know firsthand what our community has to offer both visitors and locals alike. So, if you are looking for something to do in Park City that isn’t on the ski slopes, we have some suggestions for you.

Establishments like the Egyptian Theatre attract musicians, dancing troupes, dramatic performances, and more. You can easily check their website to see what is going on during your visit to Park City.
There are also many open-air concerts—ranging from free to paid. Summer and fall are particularly good times to catch open-air concerts, though you can still catch some performances during the winter and spring months!

At these spas, you can find treatments ranging from soothing massage to a range of body treatments designed to help you recover from your time spent on the slopes.

Join A Park City Food Tour
Park City has a thriving food culture, and world-class chefs have made their home base in this town. So, if you want to try a bit of everything and learn more about Park City, you can try out a Park City Food Tour.
The walk will take place along Historic Main Street, and you will be introduced to historically relevant places, learn fun Park City trivia, and get a taste of what kinds of restaurants you may want to eat at later in your stay.
Take A Hot Air Balloon Ride
Soar above the slopes when you opt to take a hot air balloon ride with one of the hot air balloon companies here in Park City. There are private and group rides available, so you can customize your hot air balloon ride until it is just right.
As for what to wear, it is best to bundle up in layers. While the pilot light should do a lot of the heavy lifting when it comes to keeping you warm, it is easier to remove layers than to try and get warm while gliding above the Wasatch Mountains.
Play At Olympic Park
Depending on what time of year you visit Park City, there are a number of different activities that you can enjoy at Olympic Park. First developed for the Salt Lake City 2002 Winter Olympics, this park has been maintained so that locals and visitors can come and play.
Try your hand at one of the adventure courses, where you traverse high-strung rope courses with various obstacles to overcome or try the bobsled experience if you are visiting during winter.
Learn And Enjoy A Wine Tasting Class

These wine tasting classes are for all levels of experience—that is, as long as you are 21 years old or older! Also, you may want to book in advance, as these classes can become full if you wait until the last minute.
