Whether you live close by or whether you live across the world, Park City is an amazing destination for families who are looking for a great adventure.
Park City is located in the mountains just above Salt Lake City, Utah and it is a great get-away to escape the summer heat for fun activities and it’s a great place during the winter to go skiing. In fact, Park City boasts some of the best skiing in the world and people flock here from just about everywhere to go skiing.
Despite Salt Lake City’s high elevation, it is a high desert and summers are hot, very often hovering around 100° F (38°C) during the day. So, if you’re anything like me, the heat gets old after several weeks and you really want to take a break, but you don’t want to travel too far either.
The good news is that the mountains are very close no matter where you are in the Salt Lake Valley or Utah Valley, you can escape and drive less than an hour to a higher elevation and cooler temperatures.
Tibble Fork Reservoir is very close to the cities of Highland and Alpine, Utah. All you have to do is take Highway 92 east and up the canyon. When prompted by the signs, you turn left and drive a way until you arrive.
Many people I talk to have visited Washington DC, very few have taken the trip to Mount Vernon, VA while there. It is somewhat of a distance away from the Washington DC Metro and depending on whether you drive, or take public transportation, it can take anywhere from 45 minutes to 2 hours to travel there.
Either way, ITS WORTH IT! We saw a lot of sights in Washington DC, this one is by far my favorite!
Now! What is so special about Mount Vernon?
