Why choose Park City? Quality of life.
Park City is a beautiful small town nestled in the Wasatch Mountains, offering its residents the perfect balance of tight-knit community with all the conveniences of a major metropolitan area.
Here are just 8 reasons why real estate in Park City should be on the top of your list:
1. Natural Beauty
From almost any location, you can gaze upon mountains, trees, and wide-open spaces. The night sky in Park City is an unrivaled experience, welcoming you to enjoy the view of thousands of twinkling stars. These views have been intentionally preserved by City Planners who have worked carefully to preserve the striking beauty of Park City.
2. Recreational Opportunities
Imagine growing up in a place where you get out of school early to learn to ski. That can be your family's reality in Park City. You'll enjoy easy access to three ski mountain resorts, Deer Valley, Park City, and The Canyons, as well as seven additional ski resorts within a 60-minute drive.
Though this region is typically thought of for skiing or snowboarding, the Park City area offers over 300 miles of well-maintained trails for mountain biking, hiking, and horseback riding, and is home to some of the country’s best golf courses.
3. Arts, Culture, Food
It was announced in the summer of 2017 that Park City purchased a 5.25-acre parcel in the Bonanza Park neighborhood that will become the city's first-ever Arts & Culture District, with Sundance Institute and the Kimball Art Center as it's anchors.
It can be argued that the city itself is an arts and culture district with festivals on Main Street, concerts at Deer Valley, and dozens of fine art galleries. Park City Institute has been entertaining, educating, and illuminating the city with performances at the Eccles Center since 1998.
Of course, Park City is home to the world-renowned Sundance Film Festival. Since 1985, hundreds of films and filmmakers have been celebrated and has grown to become the ultimate gathering of original storytellers from around the world.
When you're in the mood to dine out or grab a cocktail, there is no shortage of great options in Park City.
4. Salt Lake City International Airport
Whether you travel for work or pleasure or have friend and family visiting, you’ll enjoy having an international airport just 35-minutes away. Salt Lake City International Airport offers travelers non-stop flights around the world, a convenience no other ski town can offer.
5. The Park City School District
Park City's education system is about as desirable as it gets with its schools being among the best in the state of Utah and one earning a spot among the top-rated high schools in the United States.
Park City Education Foundation raises over $1,000,000 each year. The foundation uses the raised funds to positively impact each student through innovative teaching grants and art programs, offer more STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) and college readiness courses, provide improved early childhood education, and introduce support for student wellness.
6. All About the Community
Though Park City offers all of the conveniences of living in a major metropolitan, one its most desirable factors is the sense of immediate connectedness residents feel upon moving here. It's not uncommon for neighbors to host a "Welcome to Park City" party for newcomers.
There is a profound sense of joy, security, and gratitude among the community in Park City. This is most commonly attributed to most of the city's residents choosing to relocate here from places like California, Texas, Washington, Ohio, and other eastern states.
7. Business Opportunities
Salt Lake City, Provo, and Park City have been lovingly dubbed "Silicon Slopes" due to its emerging tech powerhouse status. This region is a clear choice to be the next big tech hub with the support from being home to the University of Utah and Brigham Young University (BYU), as well as tech giants Adobe and Microsoft, and several startup unicorns like Banjo, Domo, and Qualtrics.
