Park City is a fantastic place to live. I moved up here when I was 7 years old and went through the local school system and I can tell you that it is the best you will find in public schools. Living costs are a bit higher but it is equal to the quality care that the local government has for the city. The parks are beautiful and wonderfully taken care of. You are never more than 5 minutes to a beautiful hike, bike ride, walk, or even a ski slope. You are only a short drive from Salt Lake or the Uintahs. The people are always kind and willing to help. You do get a lot of tourists but the city is built so that it can handle tourists in a great way. Winter time can get cold but it is a beautiful city all seasons of the year. I LOVE THIS PLACE!

I love Park City! I have been lucky enough to call it my home for nearly 18 years. The recreation opportunities are endless and everyone is friendly. Throughout all the seasons Park City is beautiful, but since it is known world-wide as a top ski destination, winter months are usually when it is the busiest!
Amazing town and location that is, unfortunately, becoming just another resort town for the rich and famous.

There aren't enough great things to say about the beauty of this town and its nearby mountains - and the secret is out.

Simply put, most people can't afford the housing here and the town offers very few high-paying skilled jobs. Most residents have a long, dangerous commute into Salt Lake everyday - a town with significant air quality issues that is damaging to your health. You also have to deal with tourists all year long and an extremely high cost of living for things like groceries, meals out, and entertainment. The climate is sunny yet very snowy, extremely dry, and winters are long and cold.

Like most resort towns, it's a great place to visit and drive to, but you're likely paying the price to your wallet if you choose to set down roots here.
