A February 2002 trip to Park City by Sharlake

OLYMPICS UTAH STYLE

Overview

Quote:
SINCE WE WENT TO PARK CITY EXPRESSLY FOR THE OLYMPICS, THAT WAS THE MAIN HIGHLIGHT OF THE TRIP. (SEEING ROBERT REDFORD WAS OK TOO!) IF YOU LOVE TREES, MOUNTAINS, HIKING AND PHOTOGRAPHY, UTAH IS IDYLLIC! WE DROVE FROM CALIFORNIA TO PARK CITY SO WE SAW A LOT OF TERRAIN AND STOPPED REGULARLY TO ADMIRE THE BEAUTY. "SUNDANCE", ROBERT REDFORD'S SKI RESORT, WAS WONDERFUL - RUSTIC AND PEACEFUL -A SITE TO SEE. THE TABERNACLE IN SALT LAKE CITY IS QUITE A STRUCTURE TO SEE AS WELL. THE PEOPLE WERE VERY FRIENDLY WHICH HELPED MAKE THE TRIP ONE TO REMEMBER.Quick Tips: IF YOU DRIVE IN SALT LAKE CITY, HAVE A MAP AND BE PREPARED TO BE CONFUSED!

Best Things Nearby:"THE GRUB STEAK" RESTAURANT ACROSS THE STREET, AND ALBERTSON'S ABOUT 1 MILE AWAY.Best Things About the Resort:Resort Experience:IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR MODERN AND LUXURIOUS, THIS IS NOT THE PLACE. WE HAD A "MINI" WHICH IS A BIT BIGGER THEN A STUDIO AND THE KITCHEN WAS "FULL". THERE WAS A GAS FIREPLACE AND TV AT THE END OF THE BED WHICH WAS NICE. FOR THE 2 OF US, IT WAS SUITABLE.

OH -SOME PLACES WE SAW DIDN'T HAVE UNDERGROUND PARKING SO IT WAS AN ADVANT...Read More

Grub Steak

Restaurant | "THE GRUB STEAK"

THE RESTAURANT IS RIGHT ACROSS THE STREET FROM THE "PARK PLAZA" WHERE WE STAYED. BY THE NAME - THE GRUB STEAK - IT SPECIALIZES IN STEAKS AND THE LIKE, BUT ALSO HAS EXCELLENT SEA FOOD. IT'S NOT OVERLY EXPENSIVE AND THE PORTIONS WERE VERY GOOD FOR THE MONEY - YOU SHOULDN'T BE HUNGRY WHEN DONE! WE WENT ON A FRIDAY NIGHT AND IT WAS VERY VERY BUSY (BUT IT WAS ALSO "OLYMPICS" TIME) SO I CAN'T SAY FOR SURE IF RESERVATIONS ARE REQUIRED - MAKE THEM ANYWAY. THE ATMOSPHERE IS CASUAL-JEANS ARE OK, BUT YOU CAN DRESS IF YOU LIKE. AS IT WAS OLYMPIC TIME AND COLD, THERE WERE A LOT OF SKI PARKA'S AND BOOTS WHEN WE WENT. IT'S NOT A QUIET ROMANTIC AS THE SEATING IS EITHER OPEN AREA OR BOOTHS BUT IT'S NOT AS LOUD AS ...Read More
