Life is busy. Even those of us fortunate enough to live in a resort town like Park City, Utah have to remind ourselves to take a moment to slow down and relax every now and again. In order to be successful at the R&R mission, my husband and I have decided that each Sunday we will take the time to become tourists in our own town – to slow down for one day just long enough to truly enjoy the amazing Park City area and experience some of the activities we have always desired to check out, but never had the time. This Sunday was spent doing one of my favorite things, as it happens so infrequently…absolutely nothing!
We began our morning with breakfast at No Worries Cafe - aptly named for our mission of relaxation! No Worries is a true locals favorite, as it is located a bit off the beaten track in Summit Park, a short 15 or so minute drive out of the Main Street area in Park City. Don’t let the location dissuade you, as it is attached to a Sinclair Gas Station, just off of I-80 at the Parley’s Summit exit. This hidden gem serves up home-style breakfast and lunch every day, and has outdoor seating available. No Worries is family owned, and offers mouth-watering custom breakfast omelets, hearty breakfast skillets, as well as incredible daily lunch specials all whipped up by owner and former 5-star chef, Dante. Try the “50-Ways to Make Your Burger” lunch option – the name says it all. With more options than you can imagine, you are left to craft a gourmet burger of your own design! Veggie burgers are available too. If you really want to feel like a local, and have a fantastic meal while you’re at it, head on up to No Worries!
After our delicious breakfast, we headed over to Hotel Park City to indulge in a day by their sparkling pool. If you’re not a guest of the hotel, the helpful spa staff will happily offer you different punch card options from a one-time pass to a ten use punch card. Annual and seasonal memberships are also available for purchase if you travel to Park City frequently. We carved out our space next to the pool, grabbing two comfortable lounge chairs and an umbrella, as our winter white skin has not seen too much sun yet! Nestled in for the day, we absolutely enjoyed napping by the pool, taking a dip in the heated salt water pool every now and again, and gazing out at the spectacular views surrounding us. Hotel Park City has unobstructed views of the green slopes of Park City Mountain Resort as well as the Park City Golf Course. Although you can call Bandannas Restaurant, located just steps away in the hotel, from the pool phone and order beverages, lunch or snacks poolside, after a few hours soaking in the sun, we opted to head over to Bandannas and grab lunch while sitting out at one of their shaded outdoor tables. My Cobb Salad was delicious – and I loved the sun dried tomatoes included in the mix!
After lunch, we decided it was time to grab something for the grill, in case we decided we were hungry for dinner, and head home. Our favorite spot to grab items for the grill is Whole Foods, located in Kimball Junction, just a few moments away. With a wide selection of organic and natural meats and fish, it takes a few moments to choose! We decided on some yummy chicken and veggie kabobs marinated in a maple rosemary seasoning – a favorite, and a fantastic end to a day well spent relaxing in Park City! We’ll see what adventure next Sunday will bring!
