Park City Getaway

Saturday, July 16, 2011

This weekend we celebrated our six-month wedding anniversary (one month late) in Park City! Nate, of course, kept the location a surprise until the day of. I was thrilled because I think the last time I've been to Park City was when I was seven. (I know, I've lived here for almost three years and am just now making it up there). For some reason I always thought it was hours and hours away. It's only 45 minutes from Provo! (I never was very good at geography!)

Here's a typical artsy blogger photo for ya!

We stayed at the Newport Resort. (Nate found a super good deal through Trip Advisor).

I wish this was a sponsored post! I could say all sorts of (true) wonderful things about this place: When we checked in, there was a nice (Southern!) gentleman to welcome us.
Our room was easy to find and they let us check out a DVD player for no extra charge (maybe other places do that too, I don't know!).
There was a fully stocked kitchen and a hot tub on the balcony (which we used on the chilly Saturday morning).
A HUGE bathroom with a garden tub.
A flat screen in the bedroom and the main room.
We should have brought our laundry because there was a washer and dryer in our room.

Barn door entrance to the bedroom!
If you follow me on Pinterest, you know I LOVE barn doors.
Also, there was a fireplace, however the 90 degree weather did give us an opportunity to use it. As we were leaving, Nate broke a glass as he was taking it out of the dishwasher.
When we checked out, we told them about it and didn't give us any extra charge. So nice!

On Friday night, we chowed down on Cafe Rio (in the resort) and enjoyed simple pleasures, like watching Spongebob. ;) That night, we watched the Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian from our bed (we really need a TV in our room!)

The next morning, we took our time getting up and eventually made our way to the Tanger Outlets. But not before taking some photos with a bobsled! So fun!

Not super impressed with the outlets. We didn't see a ton of outlet prices. I was especially disappointed with the J. Crew outlet. I was really looking forward to that! But the old standard, Gap really showed its colors. I got a pencil skirt and top for $26 total. Love that. Also got a gray and yellow striped t-shirt at Old Navy for $4.25. Nate, always the cheap-o when it comes to shopping for clothes, did not buy anything. ;)

While the mountains up in Park City aren't as awe-inspiring as the ones in Provo Canyon, I love how green they are! So pretty! We didn't go downtown, but that's just another reason to go back!

Shot of the Deer Creek Reservoir on the way home. We really need to make friends with boat people!


  1. That's too bad you weren't impressed with the Outlets! I've only been once or twice and not found awesome deals at J.Crew. Looks like you guys still had fun, though :)
