Brandon and I had a wonderful getaway, that wasn’t so far away after all. Usually when we go away, we go places like Russia, or Poland, or Mexico, or California, but this time, we decided to take it easy and drove to Park City to enjoy the great state of Utah.
We spent a lovely weekend in the Waldorf Astoria in Park City, and we did it the cheap way!
Not sure if you’ve been to the Waldorf, but the first thing, and most important thing, you must know about the Waldorf is the kitchen is awesome. I’m taking I want to have that kitchen when I grow up awesome. Instead of eating out, Brandon and I took about 1/4 of what we would’ve spent eating out and went hog wild at the grocery store. We spent the next couple days playing Food Network in the kitchen and came up with steaks and veggies, crepes, and homemade pizza. When I say we, I actually mean Brandon. Brandon is sort of the chef in the family. I’m the cook, but he’s the chef. There is a difference.
The spa was awesome too. Of course, we are poor, so we didn’t get a special treatment, but we did enjoy the free services. We went to the jacuzzis, the steam room, the repose room (a great place to read, relax and listen to weird music), and drank tea and ate skinny people treats in the lounge room. It was awesome.
Not only was the hotel awesome, but the surrounding area was a dream. The Waldorf is nestled right below the Canyons ski resort, which makes for great hiking in the summer. Brandon and I found a fun trail and had a wonderful time hiking in the beautiful Park City mountains.
I’ve been to Park City a handful of times, and while I didn’t go into town on this trip, I must recommend it to all. Park City has a ton of quaint art galleries, great restaurants and a lot of outdoor fun. When you’re in Park City, make sure to check out the hiking/biking, the Alpine slide, Main Street and the outlets, to name a few.
