The beauty of Park City, Utah is its close proximity to Salt Lake City. Sure, there’s natural beauty—but without near immediate access to a major city, a lot of that natural beauty would go unseen by the vast majority. Situated 32 miles from downtown Salt Lake City and a mere 20 miles from the east end of the Sugar House district, Park City offers the best of both worlds to its residents.
During winter, there’s the skiing and snowboarding. Park City’s got three ski resorts, two of which saw a lot of activity in 2002 during the Winter Olympics. Park City is also famous for being the host city of the yearly Sundance Film Festival, an event that continues to grow in size and these days attracts about as many high-profile celebrities as it does tourists.
With a winter track record like that you’d think the town would shut down in summer, but Park City proves to be a wonderful place to live in year round. Each summer, artists from around the globe converge upon the resort town for the annual Park City Arts Festival, a three-day event held in the middle of the downtown historic district.
