As the snow melts a new vibe creeps across Park City’s hillsides. Vibrant colors swath the warmed ski slopes and outdoor patio seating takes over the sidewalks. Shorts and sandals replace puffy jackets and clunky ski boots. Spring has officially kicked off in this cozy mountain town. Spring is about the new and the green, but Park City is taking a step back in time and inviting residents and visitors alike to discover the town’s history.
Fun fact: did you know began as silver town in the 1860s? Once the silver boom subsided Park City almost disappeared into history becoming a forgotten ghost town. But due to the lush outdoors and the ski industry—the small town became a big to-do. And we mean a very big to-do. There are 200 unique businesses, over 100 independent boutiques and 50 one-of-a-kind restaurants. You can shop, relax and eat until your heart is content.
“If it’s been a while since you’ve visited Historic Park City, we invite you to spend a day with us,” says Michael Barille, Historic Park City Alliance executive director. “You may be surprised at the ease of access, the deals you’ll find, and the diverse offerings for the every-day experience and the special occasion.”
Most people know Park City in winter. Snowy landscapes teeming with ski enthusiasts. And of course, the two weeks in January when all of Hollywood descends upon the tiny mountain town to celebrate all things cinema during the Sundance Film Festival. But just because that last chair lift stops running—it doesn’t mean Park City has shut its doors.
To end that myth, the Historic Park City Alliance wants to invite you to spend the day shopping, dining and enjoy entertainment and events up and down Main Street. Take advantage of special offers through May 26th—including free parking on Main Street when you download a voucher.
