Park City, UT is among the finalists in this year’s Best Town Ever competition in Outside Magazine. The magazine is recognizing Park City for the:
Skiing; three resorts named in the top ten in North America (Deer Valley, Park City Mountain Resort, and Canyons) make this pretty easy.
Road Biking; Outside notes the Mirror Lake Scenic Byway outside of Kamas as a riding highlight. I’d say that with Park City having been named the first Gold-Level riding center ever by the International Mountain Biking Association (IMBA), mountain biking, with the hundreds of miles of trails in Park City, could easily have been the highlight (note that Outside while highlighting road biking notes in its description of Park City that the mountain biking is “absurdly good”).
Food & Nightlife; there are well over 100 restaurants that Park City offers without a bad one in the bunch, Outside highlights the High West Distillery “world class” is the descriptive phrase the magazine uses in describing Park City.
Easy Access to Green Space; it is nearly impossible to stroll ten minutes in any direction from Park City and not find yourself in some type of open space.
Outside closes its brief description of Park City by calling it “the best mix of adventure and culture of any mountain town in the West”. We here at YouInParkCity.com agree wholeheartedly!
