One thing the Park City, Utah, prides itself on is just how easy and fun it is for families to visit with minimal hassle and maximum fun. The town vibe is relaxed and unfussy. Couples, friends, and families from all over the world stroll the town’s historic main street, sip cocoa or wine at the end of an incredible day out, and generally just enjoy hanging out with loved ones in a laid-back mountain setting.
