Winter Park, CO (Vocus) July 22, 2009
Resting at 7,000 feet above sea level, Park City Utah is commonly known as a premier winter vacation destination. What many don't realize, however, is that the city also thrives in the summer months. With an exciting, bustling downtown area, beautiful seas of wildflowers, fishing, golf, and numerous summer festivals and attractions, Park City is anything but quiet in the summer.
Looking for a little adventure with the family? The same mountains that provide world-class skiing are home to an alpine slide, amazing mountain biking, a climbing wall, and a variety of other adrenaline-pumping activities for the whole family! For visitiors who would rather slow things down a notch or two, experience the view from a scenic chairlift ride, or enjoy an afternoon hiking in the wilderness. Take a camera, there will be lots to capture along the way!
