Lying east of Salt Lake City in Utah, Park City is known for its mountain resorts and snow-glazed valleys. It is a perfect place for a quick honeymoon after your wedding. Take your romantic escapade to a whole new level by experiencing world-class skiing, exquisite meals, and luxurious spa treatments. I am not exaggerating when I say it is a perfect package for honeymooners! You have your adrenaline-rushing sports, breathtakingly beautiful scenery featuring marvelous mountains and alpine greenery, fine-dining restaurants, and sophisticated shopping areas.
Things to do in Park City together
Spend some of your vacation cozying up by the fireplace in the comfort of your hotel or rental home. This is one of the reasons why your accommodations can make a big difference in how much you enjoy your trip. If you are there in the winter, you are going to love the late evenings and mornings spend together cozy inside.

If you want to hit the slopes, December through March is the best time to visit. We have been to Park City Mountain Resort and it is our favorite ski resort in the area. The staff is very friendly and helpful, there is a variety of slopes for any difficulty. Our last trip was in the beginning of the season and we were lucky that there was a lot of snow to enjoy when we were there.
Besides skiing, go on a moonlight snowshoe tour, a sleigh ride, or try some of the amazing restaurants. If you don’t have the gear or don’t want to worry about gear, you can always rent it. In our last trip, Aloha rentals got us suited up and ready to go.

Here are a few recommendations for where to stay.
