Featured Journeys: Go West in the USA

Ahh...fresh mountain air, wide open spaces, and plenty of outdoors to explore. In this edition of Featured Journeys: Go West in the USA, we explore a multi-destination itinerary to Park City, Utah, Jackson, Wyoming, and Missoula, Montana. From mountain resorts to ultra-luxe ranches (glamping anyone?), we're highlighting a few of our top picks for where to stay when you want to head west. 

Park City, Utah

Well known for skiing, Park City is a year-round destination in Western Utah. In the 1870s, a silver boom brought thousands to the city, when more than 30 saloons lined the streets. During the 1960s the first ski lift was built, and visitors from around the world visited in 2002 when Park City hosted the Olympics. Today, the city provides a casual western atmosphere with a touch of elegance, an innovative restaurant scene, performing arts events, and some of the state's liveliest nightspots. For those seeking outdoor adventures beyond the slopes, the spring and summer seasons provide plenty of opportunities for fishing, mountain biking, and hiking.
