Mountain Town Charm. Whether it is the seclusion or the clean, crisp air, spending time in Park City makes you feel that you are experiencing something quite unique in a resort destination. Historic Main Street is just that—historic. Over 60 of the buildings, many reflecting the Victorian architectural style, are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The integrity and character of the once bustling mining town has been well preserved. Your time spent here can be cozy, private, and very personal, or you can tear around the mountains and revel in the nightlife..
Sundance Film Festival. The Sundance Film Festival is America’s premiere showcase for independently produced documentary and dramatic films. Each year, members of the programming staff of the Sundance Institute view more than 3,000 submissions to select a total of 100 or more feature-length documentary and dramatic films and 60 shorts for exhibition to an audience exceeding 20,000.
Summer Activities. While Park City is famous for its snow, it’s the sunny days and cool nights (no humidity) that add to Park City’s reputation as a warm weather playground. During the summer months be sure to catch one of the many outdoor concerts, the arts festival, and many more events. Fill your time with a sunrise hot air balloon ride, a quiet walk in the woods, or a lively night on historic Main Street. Or visit nearby wilderness areas for day hiking, backpacking, mountain biking, hunting, fishing and horseback riding. Three area reservoirs offer the chance to dip your toes, water ski or test your favorite lure. And of course there’s golf, with numerous courses in the Park City area.
Dining & Nightlife. While Park City was once a rough and tumble mining town, today it is much more refined, with over 110 restaurants, hundreds of shops, three cinemas and two live theaters. In an international collection of cafes and fine dining establishments, many with outdoor decks and patios, one can dine on award-wining continental cuisine, southwest nouveau, western barbeque, or even a casual burger. And a full day on the slopes doesn’t mean the end of the day in Park City– the night comes alive with more than 20 clubs and bars.
