Massage and Fitness SLC helps clients not only build stronger bodies in group exercise classes, but also unwind after their workouts with custom massages. Licensed massage therapist Elizabeth Anne Galloway targets testy areas such as the triceps and glutes with the gliding kneads of Swedish massage as well as the probing motions of the deep-tissue technique. Scalp massages melt away tension using hot oil and pressure-point stimulation, and reflexology sessions activate specific sites on the feet, hands, and ears to promote improved health in corresponding areas of the body, including the liver, bladder, and dorsal fin.
The boomtown saloons and boarding houses of Park City's past have given way to more than 100 independent boutiques, 30 art galleries, and 50 restaurants along historical Main Street. But the town still holds a few hidden gems for travelers to unearth, including Uptown Fare, a cozy café that shuts its doors to anyone but locals during the mania of the Sundance Film Festival each January. At other times of the year, owner Karleen chats freely with her guests from behind the lunch counter as she crafts hearty sandwiches and serves up her legendary cream-of-tomato and cheese-tortellini soup. Steps away from the Silver King, Park City Mountain Resort—a venue for the 2002 Winter Olympic half-pipe and alpine giant-slalom events—offers year-round outdoor recreation. In the warmer months, children race down the parallel tracks of the Alpine Slide, shrieking with delight. Farther up, mountain bikers and hikers dart in and out of view, weaving through groves of trees dotting hundreds of miles of trails. In the late afternoon, a line forms in front of the year-round Alpine Coaster, where eager riders climb into go-karts before hurtling down the mountain. Come winter, the mountain's eight peaks and nine bowls allow skiers and snowboarders to test alternative theories of gravity on more than 114 trails and three terrain parks.In Park City's historical downtown, the three-level, 12,000-square-foot Park City Museum chronicles the town’s history with artifacts and interactive exhibits. In the eerie museum basement, visitors can traipse through the former territorial jail—nicknamed “the dungeon” for its dim lighting, stone walls, and rusted leg irons. In the space between the cells, Wanted posters come to life via embedded videos showcasing the outlaws, murderers, and thieves who passed through the subterranean slammer.
With more than 50 years of combined experience in the cleaning industry, Leone's team renews soiled household threads with waterless washing and preservation techniques for an array of garments. Unsoiled shirts retain their smooth cuffs with hand and machine pressing before tucking their tails into custom suits designed by Leone’s staffers, who also expunge stains from ties, dresses, trousers, and suede. Bewitching bridal gowns retain or regain their immaculate glow with Leone's bridal-gown cleaning and restoration services, which pair with an optional preservation chest for optimum safekeeping. Cleaners also twirl the dirt off of home textiles, such as down comforters and dingy curtain panels, enabling their fresh fibers to once again shield household interiors from bright rays and unwanted love letters from the sun. While they wait for their stain-free vestments, patrons at the Sandy location can peruse Leone's café’s spread of coffee, tea, and smoothies.
