Most of us have settled into a new normal of remote work at home but that does not mean your travel life should take a pause. Mountain towns are up and running, the weather is cooling down and the aspens are beginning to change. Now is a great time to take an extended trip while still getting your work done remotely and safely distancing from others.
Small towns have adapted to the pandemic by offering delivery services, increased outdoor seating and reducing capacity at popular spots. Hotels are always an option but to really be able to setup a remote office, renting a home would be the best option. Rentalz and Deluxuri are great sources to find the mountain dream home to make yours for the week.
Grocery stores are open but to help keep up with social distancing it is best to have them deliver right to you. Some delivery services offer same day or can have them in your home and stocked before you arrive.
When you do need to get away from the “office” for some food try these restaurants with great outdoor seating options.
- Wasatch Brewpub - Wasatch has been locally brewing beer since 1986. Their Park City location has a large outdoor patio and a vast menu to satisfy anyone.
- Twisted Fern - The Twisted Fern is a true foodie destination in Park City. Enjoy a nice lunch on their patio while soaking up the sun.
- No Name Saloon - This 21+ restaurant/bar, serving up casual pub fare, resides in a 100 year old building and has been a go to for locals for many years. Head up to their rooftop patio for the best views in town.
