Destinations / North America

Park City lies in northern Utah, nestled near the Wasatch mountain range. The city is a perfect destination for outdoor enthusiasts, though there are plenty of places to explore if you’re more interested in cultural attractions. See Park City on less than $100 a day.


Start your day with breakfast at Wasatch Bagel & Grill. Choose from bagels with a variety of spreads or heartier options like omelets. Breakfast entrées cost $2.50–11. The restaurant is open for lunch and dinner service, too. Visit the Swaner Preserve and EcoCenter. The 1,200-acre nature preserve boasts 10 miles of trails. Closed Monday and Tuesday. There is a suggested $5 donation.


Head to Utah Olympic Park. The park was built for the 2002 Winter Olympic Games. While there are many activities to take part in, this might be too much for your budget. Opt for a tour of the park instead for $7.


Experience a distillery tour and lunch at High West Distillery. The award-winning distillery opened in 2006 and has since expanded its offerings. Tours run daily. The food menu offers elevated pub grub, well paired with whiskey. Entrées start around $19.


Learn more about the city’s history at the Park City Museum. Open daily, the museum features exhibits detailing the city’s history. Adult admission costs $12. Next, spend some time strolling around the historic downtown area. You’ll find shops, cafés and galleries.


Have tapas for dinner at 710 Bodega Tapas and Wine. The Spanish restaurant serves small plates of traditional cuisine including patatas bravas, paella and imported meats and cheeses. Plates start at $10.


Park City is also home to annual events including the Sundance Film Festival. Check the calendar for other annual events.
