Even the most die-hard film lovers need a little daylight, and there are plenty of local attractions to complement your movie-going at this year’s Sundance Film Festival. Whether it’s dinner and movie, a trip to the outlets, or a day on the slopes, we’ve got you covered.
This modest mountain town may surprise you with its array of dining scenes, from the extravagant to the casual. Click here to explore the culinary melting pot that is Park City. Staying in for the night? Two local grocery stores, Fresh Market (1800 Park Ave.) and City Market (right across the street), have everything you need to cook up your own favorite dish.
The old—dare we say, archaic—laws about purchasing a membership to drink in a bar have been lifted. You can order mixed drinks, wine, beer, and shots without any problems while dining at a Park City restaurant or bar. ¡Salud! To stock your condo bar, you can purchase beer in grocery and convenience stores. For hard liquor and wine, take a jaunt over to one of the three state liquor stores in Park City: 333 Main St., 1550 Snowcreek Drive at Snow Creek Plaza, or Kimball Plaza at Kimball Junction.
Carve It Up
We don’t mince our words—Park City mountain conditions are some of the best in the world. Better yet, ski runs are relatively empty during the Festival since most people are out watching movies. Why not hit the slopes?
