Parched? Tap into these fun ways to hydrate!
1. Basin Recreation offers a stupendous camp that will keep children chillin’ this summer. The H2O Adventure is a water-filled week that includes river rafting, swimming, trips to water parks and other water activities for kids. The goal of this camp is to stay cool and have fun! Space is limited. Sessions run June 27-July 1 and August 15-19, 2005. www.basinrecreation.org, 655.0999.
2. Coldstone Creamery creates supremely creamy blends of ice cream fresh each day and served from two locations. Fourteen fabulous flavors can be used in many combinations for cones, sundaes and blended treats. The top-selling mixture is the “Founders Favorite,” containing pecans, fudge brownie chunks and caramel. Children adore the “Birthday Cake Remix,” which contains cake batter ice cream with sprinkles, brownies and fudge. Monday night is family night at the creamery: with each adult purchase, two children will enjoy their ice cream for free. 1700 Park Avenue or in the Redstone Center, 655.0962.
3. On a hot summer day, nothing is quite as tasty as a Mocha Twister at Wasatch Bagels. This chocolaty, coffee-blended concoction is sure to cool you down. Smoothie lovers will also find reasons to smile at this bagel shop: mango, strawberry banana, and extreme peach blended drinks are all on tap. 1300 Snowcreek Drive, 645.7778.
4. Silver Mountain Spa has a great pool for children with a water slide and lazy river. It’s very seldom over-crowded and there are plenty of lifeguards to ensure safety for little ones who are just getting comfortable in the water. Umbrellas for shade are abundant and treats for the kiddies can be found at the outdoor snack bar. 2080 Gold Dust Lane, 649.6670.
5. The Wasatch Pub and Brewery was the first microbrewery in Park City and the first in Utah. They offer nine varieties of beer on tap—each handcrafted and freshly brewed. Keeping with their tradition of offering seasonal beers, lighter blends will be available this summer. Patrons who prefer a drink with more of a kick may want to try the Cantina Margarita. Outdoor dining in both the restaurant and cantina make this pub even more appealing. After all, what could be more enjoyable than sitting outside on a summer evening taking in the colorful sights of Main Street while sipping a cool one? 250 Main Street, 649.0900.
Editor’s Note: The ultimate key to staying hydrated during a Park City summer (lots of sun; dry climate; elevations in town between 6,900 feet and 10,000 feet) is to drink lots of water. All day long. Don’t forget!
