Park City, Utah was founded in 1869, originally as a silver-mining town. It only took a few decades for the town’s population to boom to 10,000 residents in the early 1900s. The Park City Museum offers historic walking tours for those interested in the town’s rich mining history. Park City hosted the 2002 Winter Olympics, where Main Street was the place to be with boundless entertainment. Thousands of locals volunteered to take part in the event.

Recreation-wise, Park City has the basics and more covered. In addition to its several wooded trails, its golf course is consistently ranked as one of the best in the region, while an ice arena and racquet club draws both residents and visitors. Skateboard parks and multi-use recreational parks are also an option.

The spot is also known for the Sundance Film Festival, which has been held in Park City for almost 29 years. This festival takes place every January and lasts for 10 days.

Summers are popular in Park City, when free outdoor concerts are plentiful. There are also international biking competitions in warmer months, as well as a Park City Marathon. Arts and music festivals are great for family-friendly entertainment. No matter the season, the Park City website assures “you’ll never run out of things to do here.”

Once a silver mining camp, Park City began reinventing itself in the early 1960s with the opening of the Park City Ski Area, now known as the Park City Mountain Resort. In addition to the amazing ski resorts and facilities, Park City also has great all-season terrain and and an exciting nightlife. Park City's Historic Main Street plays host to restaurants and clubs, as well as boutiques and specialty shops.
