Utah #ParkCityPretty

 

My trip to Park City began in total chaos (thanks Hurricane Irma) but turned into the most amazing four days. This place is so pretty, it almost looks fake and there are seriously no pictures that even do it justice. I love love love Utah!
My friend and I were supposed to be flying back to Florida Sunday night, but due to the hurricane all of the airports in Florida were closed and our flights were pushed back to Wednesday. We decided to be adventurous, so we called the airline and had them move our return flights and then bought the cheapest one-way ticket to Utah that we could find. Best decision ever!
We stayed at the Chateuax which is in Deer Valley and located way up high in the mountains. When I woke up Monday morning and saw the view from our hotel room I’m pretty sure I screamed out loud. I have never seen anything as pretty as Park City in my life, there are mountains everywhere dotted with the cutest houses, ski lifts, and trees.  I was dying to go hiking so I called a friend who lived nearby and we headed out on a hike to Snow Cap Trail. This trail was about 5 miles roundtrip but wasn’t too rigorous and provided the most incredible views from start to finish. After hiking we went down to Main Street. Main Street is the most popular street in Park City and for good reason. It has tons of stores, bars, restaurants, boutiques, there’s even a barber shop. We did a little bit of shopping and had lunch at The Bridge. This is a great place if you’re looking for a quick lunch spot with a view of the mountains and the ski lift.  Afterwards we headed back to our hotel, took a nap, and changed for the night.
For dinner we went to a restaurant called Fletcher’s which is located on Main Street. The food was so insanely good! And if you are into dessert like me then make sure you order the warm butter cake at the end. I’m seriously still thinking about it days later, it was that good! After dinner we explored the bars and distilleries on Main Street. If you’re wondering, No Name Saloon and OP Rockwell were my favorites.
For our last full day in Utah we decided to visit Park City Mountain and do some outdoor activities. This place has it all; you can zip line, mini golf in the summer, ski in the winter, take a ride up the ski lift, hike, go down the alpine slide or ride the alpine coaster. We got tickets for the Alpine coaster and the Alpine slide and they were honestly so much fun! I wish everyone could have seen my snapchats of us screaming and laughing through the ride. It was a blast and I highly recommend this place if you like to spend time outside doing activities! Dinner on our final night was at Cafe Terigo which was delicious. We had an early flight to catch the next morning so we spent the rest of our night outside our hotel hanging by the fire pit and drinking wine. It was the perfect end to an amazing trip!
For my next blog post I’ll be in NYC in two weeks and cannot wait! And as always, if you are wanting to buy any of the awesome clothes from Briny then make sure to use my code ALEX20 for 20% off your purchase!
