After Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s, there’s not a whole lot to get excited about.
January just d r a g s, too.
You can see why people plan vacations to tropical places or ski resorts. It’s like having a fourth holiday.
Now here’s a winter doldrums destination to mark on your calendar for Jan. 21-31: the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah.
The event garners international attention in a luxury ski town where the glitterati gather to screen documentary, short and dramatic films. This year, you may bump into New Mooners Kristin Stewart and Dakota Fanning, who will respectively make their debuts as Joan Jett and Cherrie Curie in “The Runaways”, or Ben Affleck who stars in “The Company Men” or Jessica Alba, Kate Hudson and Simon Baker, all part of the 1950s adaptation of “The Killer Inside Me.”
And because nothing but the best digs will do for industry insiders, check out our listings of luxury Park City vacation rentals. The 7,500-square-foot estate is hidden–to keep the paparazzi away, natch–behind gates on two acres. Ready for its close up, the posh four-bedroom villa brings nature indoors via floor-to-ceiling windows in both living rooms. With its eight-person steam room, three fireplaces, multiple lounging areas and Sub-Zero and Viking appliances, this Zen-like space could suit Brangelina (and their brood) with a little babyproofing.
You never know.
A Sundance trip for Brad and Angelina may not be off their radar.
