The 2017 Sundance Film Festival starts the 19th, and we’ve got our cameras ready to snap shots of all those famous folk who are mingling outside the places we usually buy coffee. While Sundance brings film, art, and culture, it can also be a bit of a nuisance…especially if you have a car to park. Here are some tips to enjoying the fest and avoiding the hassle.

Nestled in the south end of the Salt Lake Valley between the Wasatch and Oquirrh Mountains is a beautiful slice of suburban life known as South Jordan, or “SoJo” to the locals.

Today, South Jordan has grown to a population in excess of 67,000 as homes have steadily replaced farmland making it the 5th fastest growing city in the nation. 

Although recent residential development has ballooned, the city has available horse properties  and a large equestrian center. The city’s commitment to maintaining the natural beauty in and around the city, including open spaces and the green belt along
