First stop on the American roadtrip: Park City, Utah


Screen Shot 2016-01-22 at 9.07.46 AMThanks to the increasing ease of travel more people are doing it! What with new cultures, languages and landscapes to explore, it’s hard to sit still; but often the best things are in our very own backyards. We Said Go Travel’s, Lisa Niver, went on an American roadtrip during Summer 2015 and had some unique experiences, including her stop at Park City, Utah.

Park City during the Summer is completely distinct from its Winter season. Instead of riding up the chairlift to power down the hills on skis, you can put your two-wheeled friend on and enjoy some mountain-biking. If that’s sounding a bit extreme, there are lots of other options like hiking on the well-kept runs or riding the park’s alpine slide with a great view of the mountains; there’s even mini-golf and rock-climbing at the base for some family fun!

What’s more exciting is that Park City will undergo a 50-million-dollar transformation to join neighboring Canyons and become the country’s largest ski resort! With new gondolas offering quick access between the two locations, it’ll make for a fun-filled weekend in the snow! For the Summer, however, there’s plenty to enjoy, like outdoor dining at the Waldorf Astoria, drinks at Riverhorse on Park City’s Main street and free trolley rides to discover the town’s historic side!

If all that isn’t enough, Park City offers one of the most classic yet exciting endeavors of all: hot air ballooning! Seeing a place on two feet then from a bird’s eye view is unforgettable; for Lisa, it was her first but certainly not last time in a wicker basket 8880 feet above ground!
