Try these 5 rainy day activities in Park City when the clouds threaten to literally rain on your parade.

Sometimes the weather doesn’t cooperate with your vacation plans. That’s okay!

While Park City has a reputation as an outdoor playground, that doesn’t mean adventure is cancelled when the skies turn gray. Whether it’s raining cats and dogs or just sprinkling, try these five rainy day activities in Park City for guaranteed indoor fun.

Let’s get to it.

If you don’t want to miss out on active fun while it rains and pours outside, the Action Sports Hub at Woodward Park City is as close as you can come to the great outdoors while indoors.

They have facilities for skateboards, BMX, inline skating, trampolining, parkour, and more. It’s the perfect place to catch big air, whether it’s off a ramp or into a foam pit.

And they have tons of air to spare, spanning 66,000 square feet—every single one of them carefully designed to thrill even the most dedicated adrenaline junkie.

The indoor park is open all 365 days of the year. Stop by their website to book a 90-minute session of high-flying indoor fun.

If you’re interested in staying close to the action, All Seasons Resort Lodging offers a variety of vacation homes and condos in the Kimball Junction area, just a couple of minutes from Woodward Park City.

2. Catch a Show at the Egyptian Theatre

Park City is home to a unique historical theater, part of the early 20th-century Egyptian revival.

Opened before the Great Depression, these storied halls have been home to thousands of live stage performances over the decades.

It is an important part of the internationally acclaimed Sundance Film Festival and even has its own stage door graffiti, courtesy of the one and only Banksy!

It doesn’t take a rainy day to make the Egyptian an attractive destination. Catching a show should be a part of just about every Park City getaway. Whether you’re in the mood for a rollicking concert, a stunning stage play, or the annual Thriller spectacular, it’s always a good day to enjoy the arts.

3. Take a Factory Tour at Ritual Chocolate or High West Distillery

There’s more to Park City than skiing and mountain biking. We’re a community full of industrious creators and innovators, too.

The Park City area is home to more than a few factories and workshops. Two of the most delicious production centers in town offer factory tours.

Ritual Chocolate

Ritual Chocolate will let you into their Heber operation to see where the magic happens. Watch beans become bars and taste the fruits of their aromatic labors afterward.

Their 7-step process combines old word and modern techniques to create some of the smoothest most flavorful chocolate you’ve ever had.

High West Distillery

If your party consists of adults over 21, you can head over and take a look inside High West Distillery.

Get up close and personal with the copper stills in the first legal whisky operation to open in the state of Utah after the end of prohibition.

The complimentary tour will take you through the whole process, from mash to cask, ending with an optional tasting flight (but let’s be honest—would you be here if you didn’t want a taste?).

4. Make it a Mindful Day

When the weather turns inclement, it’s a great time to turn inward and care for yourself. Take the time to pamper yourself while you wait for the skies to clear.

While you could just stay in bed and listen to the white noise of the droplets against your window, you might want to head for the spa, instead. Park City is home to a plethora of full-service spas offering luxurious self-care of every sort. Hot stones, wraps, massages, mud baths, and more esoteric treatments will whisk you away to a world of relaxation.

A trip to the spa isn’t the only way to practice mindfulness. Yoga is a perfect way to unwind and focus both body and mind. Park City has plenty of studios to choose from, spanning classes from vinyasa to hot yoga.

If that all sounds like too much work, practice your preferred style of meditation right in the comfort of your own home-away-from-home after a warm bubble bath. Sometimes you just need to take a day off. You’re worth it.

5. Take a Gallery Stroll (With an Umbrella)

This one cheats just a little bit. You will need an umbrella to stay dry between galleries.

Main Street is home to several dozen galleries covering every conceivable medium. It is easy to spend the entire day admiring beautiful paintings, sculptures, photographs, and other artistic treasures. 

Sure, you might have to step out into the elements for a few moments as you move from gallery to gallery, but you’ll spend the bulk of your time thoughtfully considering one piece after another. You might even fall in love and end up bringing a new piece home as a souvenir.

If it happens to rain on the last Friday of the month, make sure to join the Last Friday Gallery Stroll. You’ll be able to group up with kindred spirits and gain the benefit of some extra local expertise on a guided tour of Park City’s exciting gallery scene.
