Dan Howard, Director of Communications for Park City Utah and the Convention and Visitor's Bureau is our guest on today's show. Park City is absolutely beautiful. The main takeaway is that there are so many outdoor activities year-round.

Dan mentioned that Park City is one of the most accessible skiing destinations located only 25 minutes from the Salt Lake City International Airport.

Skiing in Park City offers many opportunities for learning to ski through quality instruction and several blue and green colored slopes.

Dan also expounded on two places that we've talked about before on The Family Vacationer, Woodward Park City and the Bobsled experience at the US Olympic Park

There are many wonderful places to stay and Dan went into detail about some of the more family-friendly places to stay.

AC by Marriott

Newpark Resort

Canyons Village

West Gate

Waldorf Astoria

Hyatt Place



The food scene in Park City offers so many local options because of an anti-chain rule in the city. We were pleasantly surprised to find out the Smores are a Park City staple and offered at many places at the end of a hard day skiing. Places like Java Cow for Coffee and Ice Cream. Dan mentioned the Bill White Restaurant Group and that if you wanted a distinct flavor, they have a restaurant for you.

Events have taken a hit here as they have just about everywhere. However, during a "normal" year, you can look for things like the Deer Valley Music Festival, the Kimble Art Festival, the Park Silly Market, and the Park City Songwriters Festival.

Thank you, Dan, for sharing your information and love for the area with us.
