As the days get longer and the nights warmer, our bustling ski town transforms into a peaceful spring haven, marked by temperate weather, the sweet fragrance of floral trees in bloom, and a quiet serenity falls over Historic Main Street. For a special getaway, come experience this year-round destination as the locals do. Here are a few of our favorite activities.
Park City’s proximity to local farms, its year-round influx of sophisticated diners, and the diversity of notable chefs, have all contributed to a growing foodie culture. Over the years, Park City has established itself as a culinary destination in its own right.
During this time of year, local restaurants celebrate the close of a successful ski season with dining discounts all over town. It’s a nod to those familiar faces who stick around after the snow melts.
A few of our favorites include:
Our very own Cena Ristorante and Lounge
Bangkok Thai on Main

“I enjoy rediscovering Park City after a busy ski season. It's fun to watch the mountain transform from winter to spring and into summer. It's just a wonderful time to be in Park City.”
- Ryan Mayfield, Content and Social Media Manager at Deer Valley Resort
Deer Valley Resort kicks off their summer operations June 15th. The world-renowned Utah Symphony has an exciting lineup set to grace the Snow Park Amphitheater June 30th through August 11th.
Over at Park City Mountain Resort, they’re enjoying the warmer weather, and looking forward to hitting the hiking trails.
“The ski lifts have stopped turning, but don’t worry, the outdoor fun in Park City definitely doesn’t end when the slopes close for the season! As we head into May, I love watching the scenery across town change from snowy white to vibrant green. There are plenty of trails that dry up pretty quickly in the Spring and are ready for hiking earlier than you might expect. I love hiking off of the Spring Creek Trailhead and watching the early season wildflowers pop up.”
- Jessica Miller, Senior Communications Specialist at Park City Mountain Resort
Park City Mountain Resort’s summer activities open May 25th.
