The scenery makes any photo you take, whether walking your dog or visiting the mall, look like a postcard. But that's not the only reason to live in and around Park City. The homes are just as beautiful and luxurious.

I call dibs on this one, but there are other homes just as or even better looking, presented by the Park City Area Home Builders Association at the 2010 Park City Area Showcase of Homes.

PC has world-class hiking, biking, and skiing trails, clean alpine air, gourmet restaurants, and phenomenal entertainment. If you're not already there nearly every day, then you should be. Even better, save yourself the wasted time of driving to your next adventure in Park City and move to your own little piece of PC paradise.

At the showcase you will meet the home builders, see the home features like gourmet kitchens and spa-like baths and experience the luxury and peace of Park City. A portion of all tickets sold will be donated to the Park City Area Home Builders Charitable Foundation.

After the showcase mingle with the locals. Take a walk or bike ride in the mountains or around the block. And, at some point in your explorations of all Park City has to offer, I'd recommend stopping in for a meal at one of our Dining Award winners.
