Is there something I should know about Park City? Is this a place to stay away from? Not sure what my friend does there, but I know he likes to ski. And he seems to send quite a few pictures in parks or mountain areas. I'll looking forward to this.
If you are talking about rough areas or neighborhoods - no, nothing to watch out for. Even in Salt Lake City, you won't find many places that make you nervous to drive through. SLC and Park City are really nice cities that are pretty clean compared to most.
At least I haven't seen anywhere like that in 3 years I've been here. But then again, I came from Atlanta....
Let us know when you are coming through. We'll have to try and plan a lunch or dinner, etc, for that time!
No worries about Park City. It is a wonderful town. Sking is primary on most minds in Park City. There is a lot to do, outdoor sports of all kinds. The main street area is fun to people watch, keep one hand on your wallet though(prices). It is a resort town after all. If you snowmobile, my home is located in Pime Sledding country just east of Park City.
I consider Park City to be Conie Island . The real skiing is on the SLC side of the Mountain . If you want Cowboy Bars, Expensive Restaurants , Boutiques, Antique shops , Park City is the place . They have skiable snow from middle of Feb to middle of March .
Ski the SLC side & you ski for less money on 2 to 3 times the snow . Very accesable from Downtown SLC , 25 min. Motels are cheap ,food is reasonable , city busses run up to the ski resorts, fewer people on the slopes .
