Thanksgiving is certainly a time to be thankful and also the right time to begin looking forward to the holidays to come and get a jump start on some shopping! The good news is that Park City is the perfect place to browse one-of-a-kind shops and boutiques over Thanksgiving, especially when you head to Historic Downtown.

Located at 1310 Lowell Avenue, Snowed Inn Sleigh Company offers travelers a unique opportunity to take a horse-drawn carriage ride while snuggled up under cozy blankets. These sleigh rides meander down gorgeous mountain trails covered in snow and if you choose, you can pair your ride with a live music dinner afterward at their western-inspired lodge. Sleigh rides are typically 20 to 30 minutes and it’s important to dress for the Thanksgiving weather because these outings don’t ever get canceled even when temperatures drop. It’s bound to be a fun-for-all family and friends outing that just might have you coming back for more.
