Historic Main Street in Old Town is one of the most vibrant places to live in Park City. Owning real estate here plugs you straight into the heart of our unique mountain town community.  You’ll be within walking distance of the town lift to PCMR, the best restaurants and shops in town, and the transit center.

It also hasn’t seen any significant new real estate development in a long time.

There are strict regulations that protect the historic mining town aesthetic, keeping the small town feel alive.  People love getting along with their neighbors and being surrounded by mountain views.  Because of these things, you don’t find many new opportunities to purchase new construction properties in the area.

Until now.

The annual Sundance Film Festival, held each year in the quaint, vibrant mountain town of Park City, Utah, is a jam-packed 10 days of A-list parties, star sightings, people watching, skiing, live music, and oh, yeah — movies. Which anymore, seem to be a bit of a Sundance afterthought.

In fact, the word “Sundance” is now used as a verb by locals to describe the festival. As in, “How are you going to Sundance this year?” Local translation: “Are you hunkering down or taking part?”

Though Sundance does bring some unwelcomed traffic jams and attitude, for the most part, locals enjoy this event as much as the tourists do.

Here are 8 Park City neighborhoods that have easy commutes to downtown Salt Lake City to get you out of the inversion.  With the increasing air pollution in the Salt Lake Valley, more and more people are looking to find homes in Park City.  Our free busses, world-class ski resorts and over 450 miles of non-motorized recreational trails, amazing education system, and clean air are hard to resist when you spend most of the winter in a cloud of smog.

While I hope that Salt Lake City and the state of Utah start to find ways to reduce that pollution I thought it’d be helpful to provide a guide to some viable options in Park City.  All of these neighborhoods are a 20-40 minute commute to downtown SLC and close to everything you could want in Park City.
