Summer vacation is here, the kids are out of school, and you’re looking for a new and exciting vacation destination that will be a thrill for the whole family. Bored with the typical beach house or tired of shelling out thousands of dollars at amusement park resorts? This year, a trip of outdoor adventure and exploration is just what your family needs to recharge and reconnect. Visit the Heber City, Park City, or Midway, UT, area, and your friends at Jordanelle Rentals & Marina can help you find countless activities for the whole family to enjoy.
1. Zip Lining
Zip Line Adventure Tours on Deer Creek Reservoir is home to the country’s longest continuous zip line course. This high-flying, 2-mile adventure features 10 lines and seven aerial suspension bridges that keep you off the ground from start to finish.
2. Aqua x Zone Inflatable Waterpark
Kids of all ages will enjoy bouncing and sliding along this unique, on-water play place located on the Jordanelle Reservoir. Fly high on trampolines, climb walls, and cross slippery obstacles, and then lay out on the sandy beach when you can’t keep up with the kids any longer.
3. Rent a Boat on Jordanelle
The Jordanelle Reservoir is the perfect aquatic playground for families. Rent jet skis to race around the beautiful blue waters or rent a pontoon boat if your family is looking to relax at a slower speed.
4. Explore Backcountry Trails by ATV
ATVs can fit the whole family and are a fun way to reach destinations you couldn’t otherwise see. Experience sweeping views of Heber Valley’s reservoirs and towns as you climb up over 10,000 acres of backcountry terrain by ATV.
5. The Nature Center at Jordanelle State Park
The Rock Cliff side of the Jordanelle State Park is home to the Nature Center. You can visit a small museum, go on a nature walk, and the kids can participate in a Junior Ranger Program. There are countless animals to see and birds to watch; your outdoor-loving family can explore for hours.
