As I walk along Park City’s Historic Main Street with its high-end boutiques, award-winning eateries and authentic western saloons (in the shadow of two world-class ski resorts, I might add) it’s hard to imagine this bustling ski town as the struggling silver mining community it was just five decades ago. But a small town it was, and that charm has stayed; albeit with a few more things going on than the miners were used to.
Whisk your sweetie to the slopes for a romantic couples’ getaway.
