You learn about the town's history and sample some of the best outdoor recreation spots in the country. Here’s how to make the most of your two-day trip to Salt Lake City.

**Afternoon:**From Big Cottonwood Canyon, make the spectacular drive over Guardsman Pass Scenic Byway (closed in winter) to Park City, a former mining town and home to the Sundance Film Festival. View the venues for the 2002 Winter Olympics, tour the Olympic museum, and even take a bobsled ride at Utah Olympic Park. 

**Night:**Spend the evening browsing the glitzy shops, galleries, and high-end boutiques on Park City’s Main Street. Visit one of the distilleries, breweries, or ski town pubs for happy tour and then choose to have dinner at one of the area restaurants, which range from gourmet bistros to burrito spots and pizza by the slice shops.
