Located 27 mi/43 km east of Salt Lake City, Park City, Utah, was originally an old mining town, and the area still maintains a frontier feel. Shops, restaurants, lodges, art galleries and lively nightspots are housed in Victorian-style buildings. But the area, with three resorts, is best-known for skiing, and it hosted skiing competitions during the 2002 Olympic Games.
Daredevils might want to try ski jumping (lessons available) at the Utah Winter Sports Park near Park City. Visitors also can enjoy snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, fishing, golf, hot-air ballooning, sleigh rides and ice skating. The area is popular with both singles and families, and is a good spot for visitors who don't ski or who don't want to ski every day.
