Excellent Mexican Food in Park City

By on May 25, 2010 at 11:36 pm | in Park City Leisure | No Comments

Although Park City has tons of restaurants to choose from, when it comes to Mexican, the Baja Cantina is one of my favorites. The Baja Cantina is located within The Park City Mountain Resort. This is great because there is so much to do there.

The Baja Cantina is quite popular and very busy. Therefore, I suggest putting your name down and going to play a round of mini golf or hitting the slide. Even though you might have to wait, I promise, it’s worth it.

Once seated, unwind and enjoy some awesome chips and salsa. The cantina also has legendary margaritas that you can sip while you wait for your mouth-watering entree.

I recommend the beef taco salad, it’s extremely good. My husband however, prefers the steak fajitas which are delivered sizzling hot. The Baja Cantina also has a great children’s menu complete with a prize, crayons and coloring pages. This comes in handy taming energetic kids and allows parents to have a nice relaxing meal.

The pricing is very reasonable and there is ample parking, which cannot always be said in Park City. So the next time you are in the area I highly recommend the Baja Cantina.

Don’t Get Fried by the Light

Remember in Pixar’s movie “A Bug’s Life” when the fly, or whatever Harry was, saw the bug zapper and was mesmerized by it so much that he fried himself? I wonder if kids have the same type of fascination with lights, because they always seem to leave them on! Much like Harry, they can’t seem to help themselves and unfortunately, your monthly energy bill takes a hit because of it.

Though we might not be able to prevent your kids from leaving on all the lights, we certainly can help make it more affordable! At Park’s Edge, we take energy conservation very seriously; and that’s why every Park City home we build is supplied with CFL light bulbs. CFL’s not only help decrease the load on the energy grid, but also leaves money in your pocket, where it belongs.

On average, a CFL bulb uses up to 75% less energy than a typical incandescent bulb and lasts 10 times longer. Over the years, this adds up to huge energy savings. So, if you are looking to be green and save some green, CFL’s are one of many ways to do it.

I would recommend taking a look at our video comparing an incandescent bulb versus a CFL. You will be amazed at the difference you will see registered on an electrical meter! Tell me what you think!

What’s the Most Annoying Sound in the World?

Remember in the 1994 hit movie Dumb and Dumber, when Lloyd (Jim Carrey) asks the hitchhiker, “Do you want to hear the most annoying sound in the world?” and then proceeds to scream? No doubt, a memorable and definitely annoying sound!

Well, noise coming from your upstairs/next door neighbor is as annoying as it gets. If your apartment, townhome or condo has not been properly constructed to resist sound, you have probably been frustrated.

At Park’s Edge Townhomes, we have gone to great lengths to avoid sound transfer, because it degrades quality of life. One of the ways this is accomplished is through the usage of a product called Quiet Rock. Quiet Rock looks much like one layer of sheet rock. However, it is equivalent to 8 sheets of 5/8″ sheet rock; and has a phenomenal ability to deaden sound.

The party wall of yesteryear had an STC (Sound Transmission Class) rating of just 38 (the higher the score, the better). Current building code requires an STC rating of 50. The party walls at Park’s Edge have an STC rating of 71. This wall assembly blocks out 92% of sound!

Although we might love our neighbors, hearing them through the walls and ceiling certainly isn’t enjoyable! Check out our video to find out why Park’s Edge party walls are so good at repelling sound. Better yet, come see for yourself and experience the quiet life that our Park City homes have to offer.

Most have funny or annoying stories concerning sound transfer so give them up, I would love to hear!

Park City Mountain Resort Summer Fun

PCMR, Park City Mountain Resort

Memorial Day is coming up fast.  If you are looking for a fun day trip, you and your family need to hop in the car and head to the Park City Mountain Resort.  There you will find many entertaining things to do.

One of which is, the Alpine Slide.  The luge-like tracks are over 3000 feet long; and there are four different tracks to choose from (they are all a blast, by the way).  At 3000 feet in length, these tracks are some of the longest in the world!

If, however, the Alpine Slide is not your thing; there is a long list of activities to choose from.  Here are just a few examples: scenic lift rides, human maze, miniature golf and climbing wall.

Pricing can be on the high side if all you do is one activity. However, if you buy a park pass or a combo pass it’s much more economical.  So, why not try something a little different and head to Park City for some outdoor fun with the family?

The Adventure of Olympic Park

By on May 1, 2010 at 8:07 pm | in Park City Leisure | No Comments

Every summer we go with my in-laws to stay in Park City for a weekend. My girls look forward to it all year, and yes, I said summer.  Although I hate to admit it, and even though I know Utah has phenomenal snow, I don’t ski.

That’s okay though, because Park City has many other year-round activities besides skiing.  One of my girls’ favorite places to visit is the Olympic Park. Amongst many other things you can ride the “Comet” Bobsled. This is where a trained pilot takes three passengers through 15 curves, reaching speeds of up to 70 mph, and pulling close to 5 G’s around those curves. I have to admit it’s pretty exciting!

A word of caution, before you head up for some crazy fun make sure to check the hours of operation because the Olympic Park is not always open.  If the bobsled ride isn’t running, you can tour the museum and watch the Freestyle athletes train on the ski jump. It’s really cool to watch the athletes jump and land in a pool of bubbles. This happens to be one of my daughter’s favorite parts (that is, if she has a pretzel in hand).

So, whether high speed action is up your alley or not, there are plenty of things at the Olympic Park worth checking out. It makes for an enjoyable and inexpensive day.
