Walking tours are the way to do it. You get to go at a slower pace and still get all the information you want, you can stop by some interesting restaurants or stores that you see and didn't know were there before, and you get the great exercise walking gives you. What's not to love? Read More

Day 1 2011 Outdoor Retailer Opens For Business

And so the chaos begins. I headed down to the Salt Palace; about an hour late because I wanted to grab my Sundance press credential beforehand.
