Park City

Park CityAlong with Moab Park City, is a premiere destination that attracts people from all over the world. Locals get to do the same things in these places that bring the world to Utah. Only locals know all the secrets, get better rates, and have access to the sites when they’re not crowded.

Utah’s only true ski town, Park City is famous for—well, by now Park City is so famous, there’s no need to list the reasons why. At 35 minutes from Salt Lake International Airport, Park City is perhaps North America’s most accessible mountain recreation destination.

Park City offers a relaxed small-town atmosphere with amenities not often found in small towns. Any activity involving snow is possible in Park City. The skiing and snowboarding, of course, are legendary. But the snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, snow tubing and sleigh rides and a thousand other snow-related activities are just as amazing.

Similarly amazing is the selection of things to do in Park City in the summer and fall. Park City is a paradise for golfers, and 400 miles of public trails provide ample opportunity for hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, and countless other outdoor activities.

For all of its outdoor splendor, Park City is also a cultural and artistic juggernaut. The Sundance Film Festival is perhaps the brightest star in Park City’s cultural firmament. The event puts Park City in the international limelight for about two weeks each winter.

But for all its fame, Sundance didn’t put Park City on the map. It was already there. The Kimball Arts Festival is the longest-running arts festival in the western U. S. Each August, the festival offers art, music, crafts, food and fun on the city’s Historic Main Street.

Park City is also home to the Kimball Art Center and more than 20 art galleries. The Park City Gallery Stroll—a free tour of the art galleries featuring special exhibits and artists—is held on the last Friday of each month.

Musical offerings such as the Deer Valley Music Festival and the Big Stars, Bright Nights Concert Series also bring world-class entertainment.
