Do’s and don’ts in Park City (Ex: Tipping: yes/no, touching strangers: yes/no, safety tips etc.):
I'm not sure if there are any hard and fast rules for a place and city that prides itself on being laid-back, adventurous, all about enjoyment, fun, laughter, having a great time, and just kickin-back. Sure you'll want to tip those that are making a living here, and pick-up after yourself, but all in all, it's your vacation, just enjoy it
What are the Park City spots a first-time visitor can’t miss?
Park City, has that ol' town feel once one gets up to Historic Main Street, the boutiques and shops are worth exploring, one can spend time in the Art Galleries, Book Stores or check out the Clothing shops, Jewelers, or the various Boutiques, and the trip wouldn't be quite worth it without visiting Rocky Mountain Candy store, with Chocolate Covered Apples (Yummy). There are also plenty of unique eateries and pubs, with outdoor seating right on Main, everything from Deli's, to Coffee Houses, Bars, Grills and Fine Dining if needed.
Heartbreak playlist - top 3 songs:
Now for Rod, it would be from the ol Jimi Hendrix and Rod Stewart era, but as for one so culturally refined as myself (NOT) my picks for an emotional experience would be, 1st pick "All My Tears" by Burns & Kristy, Official Music Video, then Sinead O'Conner's "Nothing Compares 2U" Official Music Video, and last comes from the Los Lonely Boys, "Heaven" Video Version, enjoy, you can thank me later
