freestyle aerial athletes training

A freestyle aerial show at Utah Olympic Park in Park City

Can’t get enough of the London games? Visit Utah Olympic Park in Park City. They’ve got athletes training, bobsled rides, and a freestyle aerial show starring past and present Olympians doing tricks 60 feet in the air before landing in a pool. It takes your breath away—and not because you’re watching at 7,000 feet. Stay: The sophisticated Waldorf-Astoria’s off-season runs all the way through October, with rates starting at $169. ABC’s Bachelor Ben stayed here—remember the balloon ride? Eat: The new Farm sources all its food within 200 miles and boasts Utah’s sole James Beard-nominated chef. In town, the beyond-charming Talisker on Main was the only non-NYC/LA resto to win an AIA Restaurant Design Jury Award this year. Play: Hike, fish, picnic, zip line, mountain bike, hot-air balloon, spa, and golf at The Canyons Resort. Bonus: Everything mentioned here lies within a five-minute drive of everything else. Easy!
