Depending on what type of activities you like, there certainly could be enough to fill that trip. Old town is a nice all day visit. If you're coming during the summer, then I'd plan to do old town during Park Silly (summer street fest that runs every weekend, loads of local artisans and their wares, plus local food). Snowbird has plenty of summer activities on the mountain. Heber/Midway is also a fun little town pretty close to Park city. They have an old steam engine small gauge RR that is cool no mater what age. Also hiking, mountain biking. and golfing around there. Speaking of mountain biking, from Park City ski area, you can bike up the backside of the mountain and ride "the crest ride" across the spine of the range and come down on the SLC side. they have shuttles to bring you back to park city, it's an amazing ride. Downtown SLC is a nice trip. There's a minor league baseball team (the Bee's), maybe catch a game. There is the "Alpine Loop" scenic drive. That is best in the fall, but worth it almost any time of year. Check out Cascade Springs if you do the Alpine Loop. Kamas is pretty and the Provo River Falls is a nice easy/short hike from up there. Provo Canyon is a nice drive (can be done at the end of the Alpine Loop) and Bridal veil falls is a fun hike. If you're really adventurous and brave, there is hang gliding from the point of the mountain (where the mountain juts out separating Salt Lake and Utah Counties on I15). Up near Logan is a nice hike to Wind Caves. Bear Lake is beautiful crystal clear water, and Minnetonka caves is near by and a fun hike. Golden Spike national monument in Promontory is where the railroads meet, it's a few hours from PC and cool history if you're into that. Vernal is about 2.5-3hrs drive east and the dinosaur park is there. Speaking of Dinosaurs, Thanks Giving Point (Lehi UT) is an all day experience. Dinosaur museum, tulip fields if you come in May time frame, curiosity museum and loads of other attractions. There is more to the south, but I'm not sure that it would be day trips (Zion, Bryce Canyon, Moab, Arches/Bridges national parks. There's loads to do out here, for sure.
