Old Town Park City: where the comforts of a 21st-century skier's mecca exist within the vigor and architecture of a 19th-century mining town. As a year-long resident of Park City, I know this town inside and out. My Sidewalk will lead you to best local hangout spots and explore a little of the boom-bust-boom of the town. We'll sip the best coffee in town, play with some mining apparatus, find some art, join in the apres-ski bar scene, visit a handmade chocolate shop, sample a flight of local whiskey, and more. I guarantee a great time.
I am an avid skier and outdoor enthusiast, but enjoy a wide variety of activities including art and theater. I grew up on the east coast, and was lured to Utah by the mountains 9 years ago and have called it home ever since. When not in town, I enjoy traveling the world to learn about as many people and places as possible.

If you need to pick up some Park City swag or souvenirs while in town, this is the shop I send friends to.
Welcome to _the_ classic Park City hangout.
We end our walk at the country's only ski in and ski out whiskey distillery, but that isn't why we come.
Thanks for the tour of Park City, Rob! This was a really interesting way to see the town from the locals' point of view. Super interesting takes on the Sundance film festival and how Park City shifted from a mining village to a ski town. Make another one!
