Though Park City, Utah, is known for its luxurious accommodations and world-class skiing, deals abound here in the quieter summer season. And for many who’ve relocated to this mountain town, Park City summers are the area’s best-kept secret. Cooler mountain temperatures make it a wonderful place to explore when the Salt Lake Valley temperatures soar, and there are plenty of free and inexpensive activities throughout town for visitors on a budget. Add these nine adventures to your Park City bucket list, and don’t worry about price, most won’t cost you a dime.

Park City's oldest, family-owned hot air balloon company, Park City Balloon Adventures offers year-round balloon flights in Park City and Summit County areas. The unique experience, laden with fun hot air ballooning tradition, offers guests a bird’s eye view of the area’s natural beauty.

The kids may be back at school, but there isn’t a better time to get them hooked on fly fishing than during the Fall -- when Park City’s blue-ribbon waters are framed by hues of oranges, yellows, reds and golds in one of the most magnificent displays of fall foliage anywhere in the Western United States.
