Park City in fall is surely one of the town’s most colorful seasons and an ideal time to experience nature’s paintbrush at play. The discovery of silver by prospecting soldiers in 1868 was marked by a bandana on a stick that fueled a boomtown economy. From those somewhat rowdy beginnings, mining gave way to ski resorts.
The arts became the town’s other defining feature. Bodacious boutiques and artsy stuff sprang up as well as seriously good restaurants and a string of lively, spirited watering holes. In today’s Park City, the riches lie above ground and the prospects are looking good!
