Park City, Utah - the Perfect Fall Break

RE-PRINT - Views on the Village - Fall, 2013

Each October, I am blessed with a week off for Fall Break - one of the greatest inventions in the history of school scheduling. And, though we don't like to travel much during this week, we have spent the last two years in a mountain town resort, enjoying the laid back attitude of off season. Last year it was Vail, and this year we traded a week of our time share in Breckenridge for the placid calm of Park City, Utah. Just a quick easy eight hours on I-80 across Wyoming, Park City is a quaint little mountain town known mostly as the location of the Sundance Film Festival, as well as a location for the 2002 Salt Lake City Olympics. We've enjoyed some beautiful fall days with sunny, blue skies and seventy degree days, as well as some picturesque snowy weather which made for pleasant evenings around the fire-pits.  A week at the Marriott's Summit Watch Resort is the perfect fall getaway. Taking hikes in the foothills, visiting Utah's Olympic sites, sipping warm and wonderful drinks at Atticus Book Store, and enjoying fine dining at some elegant but un-crowded restaurants is the perfect way to enjoy off-season in Park City.
