"Life in Park City - Utah" deWilde's Profile

There is ALWAYS something to do!

Anyone that lives in Park City and can't find something to do should get out of the house! Every day and night there is something happening in this town. Whether it's just to socialize, hang at a fundraiser, networking, sporting events ...you name it we have it. The restaurants are mostly good, most are over priced and the nightlife is always fun.

My favorite club is Harry Os, my favorite bar to hang with pals is Downstairs followed by No Name Saloon. Utah finally passed the no smoking law - which is great for this non-smoker, so the bars are smell free. The also passed a new law taking away the 'Private Club for Members' that should take effect in July so until then just say you are a member and most bars will let you in. If they ask for your card say you left it at home and ask them to look you up by your name. They don't like doing that so they might pretend to but then they will let you in. Naughty but whatever!


In just about every Park City postcard you will see McPolin Farm. It is not a working farm but they do host many functions there. There are benefits as well as downfalls to living in a trendy little town like Park City. You will get a lot of crazy folks passing through during the ski season (Dec to April), as we have some of the best snow in the world. The Sundance Film Festival (in January) brings more paparazzi and celeb’s than this town needs - yet it is fun! Ski season brings international flare as the resorts (we have three within minutes of each other) hire from out of country. All in all it is a neat place to live – although it can be pricy!

The hills are alive in Utah

The hillsides here in Utah are amazing. I was worried that once we left Oregon we wouldn't have the ability to hike, bike and play as we did in Oregon. Maybe the ability to do so is because we live in the mountains of Park City. Either way I am just glad we have opportunities to do the same outdoor adventures that we have been used to.
