Incorporated as a city in 1884, Park City is a small city in United States’ state Utah, with around 8000 people on its territory. However as a tourist destination, the tourist population often exceeds the number of permanent residents. In the late 1860s the silver veins in the mountain region attracted many travelers and adventurers which later led to establishing the city. Today Park City is no longer a silver mining area, but still shines, especially after helding the Winter Olympic Games in 2002. And after being put among one of the 20 ‘prettiest towns’ in the United States, I guess it deserved it’s place in the travel guides.
