Describe your ideal date night in Historic Park City.
Dinner pretty much anywhere, walking down Main Street and, if lazy, taking the trolly back up.
What Main Street events are your favorite and why?
Miner’s Day is still quintessential Park City at its finest – hasn’t lost a beat in over two decades.

National acts playing free concerts on Lower Main Street during winter events at Deer Valley and Park City Mountain Resort

Park City’s local flavor was played out for years at The Alamo and Saloon. But No Name is pretty close. And a lot more civil.
Any locals’ secrets you’d like to share about Historic Park City?
Treasure trove of information and fun at Park City Museum on Main Street. The heart of our historic mountain community is our own public radio station, KPCW, with a commanding view of Swede Alley above the liquor store.
