Park City, Utah ~ Ski Mecca, Sundance Film Festival, Classic Old Town

June 21st ~ Park City, Utah

Main Street, Historical District, Park City

We have kept a low profile the past few days. Moving on to Park City where we stayed for three nights. It gave us a chance to do some laundry and grocery shopping at the nearby Trader Joe’s. A stop by Camping World where we picked up a couple of items we needed for the RV, and we even found a great “new to us” store called Sierra Trading Post where we picked up some super deals on casual clothing. 

We spent one afternoon exploring the historic center of Park City. Main Street is lined with upscale boutiques, art galleries, restaurants, and quaint shops. The buildings are well maintained and makes you feel like you have stepped back in time to the late 1800’s.

The Sundance Film Festival is held in Park City every year. There are also two world-class ski resorts here, Park City Mountain Resort and Deer Valley Resort where you can enjoy the famous light Utah powder. In 2002, many of the Winter Olympic events were held in the Utah Olympic Park.

A few snaps to give you a small taste of the area:

Spotted next to a gas station on the way from Moab to Park City

The scenery changed from rocks to green hills, and eventually beautiful mountains

Tim and a fun, silly sculpture, but OUCH, that metal bench was hot!

Overnight: Park City RV Resort

GRATITUDE MOMENT: Today I am grateful for clean clothes, washed towels and fresh sheets. It felt wonderful to regroup and just “live” instead of “travel” for a couple of days. We knew that we would want/need to have days along the way for down time. It was simply the right time…

Tomorrow on to Salt Lake City

    Park City can be a fun place. Are you planning anything specific to see and do in Salt Lake City?

    We all must wind down and do chores during a trip, so nice it was in such a great location. Only time I have been to Park City is to ski, didn’t see much of the shops. Might have to go back and investigate the area during a warmer season.

    We all need ‘to touch base’ and ordinary living now and then (like wot most of us do…..)but there was a definite whiff of the past in that blog – not to mention a fresh whiff of the present (clean sheets, washed feet etc!) Wagons roll…

    Very cool. I don’t think I’ve ever done Park City in the summer. It looks so much brighter. I guess I should. Have fun. My kids live in SLC. They keep telling me my grands are saying they need a “grandma fix”.

    While growing up, going to college, and for the last twenty years I’ve lived near enough to Park City to explore it, enjoy its film festival and mountains, and watch others ski. Thank you for reminding me of many happy times.

  6. Great post! We went to Park City for their Sunday Market when we visited our daughter in Salt Lake City and remember seeing the bear sculpture.

    Looks like a lovely town to visit for a few days even if you did have to do laundry!

    Relaxing, errand days are great and necessary! Nice pics too. We didn’t go north of Moab, so I am looking forward to the rest of your trip.
