Thanksgiving the Park City Way

Posted by Heather Peterson on Tuesday, November 19th, 2019 at 6:25pm.

As Park City residents, we have much to be thankful for. We are surrounded by majestic scenery, enjoy a healthy and engaged lifestyle, and get to live where others flock to for their vacations. As Park City Realtors, we are also thankful to our clients and the thoughtful referrals to handle luxury real estate transactions in Park City and Deer Valley.

Of course, Thanksgiving is also about feasting. Fortunately, Park City restaurants offer a multiple of dining options that will cater specifically to the Thanksgiving palate and remove the stress of preparing an elaborate meal. Another benefit of living here is we can head to Park City Mountain and ski off some of those calories the following day. Whether you’re seeking to dine out or carry out, there are abundant local options to help make your Thanksgiving Park City perfect.
