Cool mornings, mountain views, and good friends are a combination that adds up to a truly excellent weekend getaway.
I spent last weekend in Park City, UT and came home ready to plan a return trip. Just 35 miles outside of Salt Lake City, Park City has been named one of the 20 prettiest cities in America.
With a breathtaking view around every corner, it’s easy to understand why.
While we weren’t there to ski this trip, Park City is the largest ski area in the US with 17 slopes, 14 bowls, 300 trails and 22 miles of lifts. (Even for this non-skier, those numbers are impressive.)
In addition to that, the food, the lodging, the whole Park City experience was unforgettable.
We did a wine tasting at Stein Erickson Lodge that was one of the best I’ve ever done. The lodge’s claim to fame is the best wine list in Utah, and I believe it. As an added bonus of the tasting, I found a new wine to love as well.
Have you heard of Asyritko? It’s a Greek wine and the grapes are grown only on Santorini. The vines are grown in circles or “baskets” on the ground due to how windy it is on the little island.
Wine buying tip: If you’re new to wine, and like me, can never figure out which wine to buy, a $14-$19 bottle is an excellent price point for quality.
We stayed in the Stein Erickson Residences for our visit to Park City and the house was incredible. I can’t recommend them highly enough. There were 11 of us and we had so much room to spread out. Very luxurious and we felt pampered through it all.
I spent a whole lot of time sitting on this patio enjoying both the view and that fire. How soon is too soon to plan that trip back? Seriously.
One of my favorite things about blogging has been the friendships I’ve made. These women are some of the most helpful, kind, and generous bloggers I know. And in addition that that, they really can cook! I have so many recipes saved from their websites to try this fall and winter.
Check out all of their websites for plenty of delicious eats: Heidi of FoodieCrush, Holly of Spend with Pennies, Kimber of Easy Family Recipes, Kristyn of Lil Luna, Lee of Fit Foodie Finds, Maria of Two Peas and Their Pod, Michelle of Nom Nom Paleo, Shannon of Clean Eats and Treats, Tessa of Handle the Heat, and Yumna of Feel Good Foodie.
How soon is too soon to plan a trip back to Park City? Now? That works for me.
