It’s been named one of the top 20 prettiest cities in America, is home to the largest independent film festival in the country, and offers mountain conditions so good the United States Ski Team calls it home. Park City, Utah, is located just 30 miles outside of Salt Lake City, and the many resort neighborhoods make it easy to find luxury vacation rentals near all the attractions. Old Town, Deer Valley Resort, and Canyons Resort are all within a 10 minute drive of each other, while internationally recognized mountain biking trails and other outdoor activities are found throughout the region.
