Our Indelible Journey In Park City, Utah

Best Of IgoUgo

Overview

Quote:
Since we only stayed in Park City for four nights, we were limited on our activity choices. Some of the highlights we did take advantage of were: Historical Main Street in Park City Utah Olympic Park Guardman Pass Park City Bus Transit & Trolley Outing If this is your first trip to Park City, Utah, then you really need to go to the Historical Main Street. There are so many little shops and restaurants located on this street alone. Luckily for us, the shops were open during Memorial Day Weekend. And… it wasn’t crowded at all. We truly had a wonderful time exploring the many things offered before us. Quick Tips:...Read More

We stayed in Unit 515/17/9, which accompanied 8/6 people. This unit was actually three lockouts, which combined into a 2 Bedroom Parlor Deluxe suite. Unit 515 had the two double beds with a regular full sized bathroom. Unit 517 (main unit) had a full kitchen, dining room, living room with a queen sleeper sofa, gas fireplace and a regular full sized bathroom.

Main Street Pizza & Noodle

Restaurant | "Main Street Pizza & Noodle"

The main reason we chose Main Street Pizza & Noodle is because I was able to obtain two $10 gift certificates. I thought this would be sufficient enough funds for two people. I thought wrong.... Main Street Pizza & Noodle is located in downtown Park City on Main Street. Its small and quaint building is easy to locate, but this is only because of the sign displayed out in front of their restaurant. (I'll enclose a picture of the sign so you'll know what it looks like.) Here is a place that is open seven days a week for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Their time varies depending on the season. WINTER HOURS Breakfast-Served Everyday fr...Read More

If you haven't noticed by now from reading my journals, we're the type who like down-to-earth restaurants/cafes. No fancy stuff for us!! We came across Burgies by happenstance while walking along the shops on Main Street. It seemed like a good place to eat at and we took the chance. I'm sooooo glad we did, because Burgies proved to be YUMMY for the TUMMY! As we entered, our host asked us if we wanted to sit upstairs or downstairs. We thought a few seconds and decided on upstairs. Climbed the stairs, sat down and noticed our surroundings: A few tables and chairs surrounding a bar. Because of its murkiness (darkness), we decided to go back downstairs. This is when we soaked up B...Read More

Historical Main Street

Attraction

Historical Main Street in Park City, Utah is a must-see, especially if this is your first visit. There are so many little shops and restaurants located on this street alone. Luckily for us, the shops and restaurants were open - and it wasn’t crowded at all. When we visited Park City during Memorial Day, we had no idea things would be uneventful. Even at our resort, Grand Summit, none of The Canyons shops were open. We were so happy to see that THAT wasn't the case with Park City's Downtown Main Street. Granted, it wasn't busy and it had a "ghost town" feel to it; it was nevertheless a wonderful time to soak in all of the sights. No bumping into anyone. No shoulder to shoulder crowds.

Guardsman's Pass

Attraction | "Guardman's Pass"

Quote:
Have you ever taken a road that led to something so breathtakingly beautiful? Well, we did and this is what happened... We were out driving around in Park City, Utah, exploring and not having a care in the world. We stumbled upon a sign that said "Guardman's Pass" with an arrow giving us directions in which way to go. We thought, "Okay, let's give it a whirl and see where it takes us." Boy, were we stunned. Our "mysterious" road led us into something I can only compare to the Trail Ridge Road located in Estes Park, Colorado. If you've been there, then you know exactly what portrait lies before us. If you haven't, then you're in luck, because I have some pictures!! I...Read More

Utah Olympic Park

Attraction

While this wasn't our favorite activity to do, it was nevertheless interesting. It could be because we've chosen to do a self-guided tour on our own. Like other activities we've come across during our stay in Park City, the Utah Olympic Park was free of crowds and uneventful. We only wanted to see the Olympic Park and say, "Hey, we've been there." And we've accomplished just that. If we had chosen to do a Guided Tour or a Bobsled Ride, the prices are as follows:ADMISSION PRICESAdults - $8Youth/Seniors - $6Children (3 to 12) - $4Infants - FreeBOBSLED RIDESRese...Read More

Pitiful Patio Furniture Photo, Park City, Utah

In every situation, there are always two sides to every coin. The same thing applies to resorts, timeshares and hotels. Here is a brief summary of the "Minor Inconveniences" at the Grand Summit Resort- The Canyons. If this tidbit info benefits (at least) one person, then I know I have done something positive. THE NEGATIVES: No washer/dryers in units. I’m not sure if this applies to all units or just some. On a more positive note, they do have coin a operated laundry facility onsite. For a resort this elegant, their patio furniture is really pitiful. You get two little wrought iron chairs and a dinky table. Although the balcony isn’...Read More

Where there's vacation, there's pictures. (Well, it is with us, anyway). I don't know about you, but when I come across a journal, I always look for ones that have photos enclosed first. Pictures help bring journals to life. It also helps the reader get a better grasp of what they are visualizing.

I hope by submitting some more pictures of the Grand Summit Resort, I'll accomplish my goal in bringing our vacation to life.

Please note: For more interior pictures of this resort, please take a look at my other journal titled, "Grand Summit Resort- The Canyons".

May you enjoy them...
