Crater swimming and Sunday brunching at The Homestead Resort - Midway, UT

by Bob Winter March 23 2009 0 Comments

A short hop from the Park City area is The Homestead Resort.  Located in Midway, UT, the resort in about a 20 minute drive from Park City and is well worth a trip.  Midway has a lot of old-world Swiss charm and The Homestead is a picture perfect example of what the town has to offer.

We also decided to check out the Sunday Brunch and weren't disappointed.  There was plenty of food to be had and a great variety for everyone.  I personally enjoyed the pesto chicken and fresh croissants.  The restaurant had a wonderful ambiance with the piano player in the background.  Everyone in our party left with a full stomach ready for another day of skiing in Utah.
