Visiting Park City Utah during the famous Sundance Film Festival (Jan. 21-29th) was not intentional, but it became a very enjoyable coincidence. It was a trip planned to visit a friend for the first time since he moved to Utah, and the film festival was both a positive and negative situation. The negative being that the traffic was horrific, finding places to park was impossible, and restaurant reservations was even more of a challenge. In spite of it all, it was a great time, in a beautiful area, and full of life and energy only a small town full of film enthusiasts and serious skiers could provide. The setting of Park City Utah is a postcard perfect surrounding of the Rocky Mountains, vall...Read More

Adolph's Restaurant in Park City, Utah, had been voted the 2nd best restaurant by many travel sites, and it has repeatedly scored high in most travel guides. I enjoyed the upscale feeling of this restaurant, yet it still has a casual feeling to it. Excellent food, with a German Austrian slant. Excellent lamb, duck, and fish. And the "chocolate fondue" was the perfect "skiing delight" dessert.Situated in the heart of Park City at 1500 Kearns Blvd., Adolph's is convenient to both the ski crowd and the busy "film" industry during the well-known "Sundance Film Festival", which was during the week of January 23 to 30th in 2006.A reservation is a must during the Film Festival, but fr...Read More

As we were walking up the right side of Main Street in Park City, we came across a ski lift right between two buildings of shops and restaurants, one of them being the "Eating Establishment." We decided to have lunch there, and it was a great experience. We sat in a wonderful dining room (one of two) that had a complete glass ceiling, huge tiles on the floor, an adobe-type fire place with open fire, and a huge black board with all of the specials written on it for the day. Even though it was frigid outside during the peak of the high ski season, we were warm and toasty under the glass. It was busy, for the Sundance Film Festival was going on at the same time. The clients were a...Read More

Through the past few years, with the addition of top rated art galleries, Park City has become more and more upscale. There are so many grand new homes being built in Park City, not only second homes for the ski crowd but also it is becoming more developed as a great place to live, and raise your children. The need for home furnishings is on the rise, as is the necessity of buying and collecting great contemporary art.I was very happy to come upon the "Julie Nester Gallery", as we were shopping for a painting for the house we were visiting. Julie's gallery has recently been noted, by Salt Lake Magazine, "Best of the Beehive 05", "Best Gallery in Utah". And after perusing through it, I could ...Read More
