On Sundays through October 25, 2020 Park City’s Main Street transforms into a pedestrian-friendly, car-free zone. Merchants overflow their wares onto sidewalks into the street as restaurants expand their service on the street. Artists, musicians, and entertainment take perform throughout the district offering unexpected experiences as visitors stroll up and down the street.
This time of year, you are going to want to plan around the heat of the day.
First things first, breakfast! Now, we can’t tell you which Historic Park City breakfast spot you’ll like the most, but we can tell you we have you covered whether your preference is a classic American breakfast or perhaps a little lighter fare from down under.
- One of Park City’s oldest restaurants, The Eating Establishment offers an outdoor dining deck and a menu that spans all palettes.
- Harvest, located on Park Avenue, brings a down under dining experience to Main Street and serves delightful dishes with an Australian spin on breakfast. We’re loving their twist on the most important meal of the day.
- Maybe you’re more of a grab-and-go type of person. You can’t go wrong with Atticus or Java Cow. Both will help you caffeinate, break the fast and prepare you for a day on the street.
- Last, but certainly not least, The Bridge, located on Park City Mountain’s Town Lift Bridge has expanded across the bridge and is the perfect location for a leisurely brunch. The setting is so pristine, you may not want to leave…but you should. There are places to go and people to see.
- Many shops and boutiques begin opening their doors around 10 a.m. My personal strategy for a day on Main is to start with a stroll up and down the street. Main Street merchants are continuously changing up their inventory and do a great job decorating their windows with their latest merchandise. On Sundays, it’s fun to see who is popping up on the street and what entertainers and activities we can find, and of course popping in for a more focused browse when the feeling calls.
While traditional ‘back-to-school’ shopping may look a little different this year, we’re longing for a fashion reset. A few of my must-stops include:
- The Exchange on Main, located at 605 Main Street, recently re-opening in the Historic District after a few years off Main. You will be hard pressed to leave the Exchange without a few new treasures. We speak from experience.
- For a one-stop shop, stop by Bahnof on Lower Main which caters to men, women and children. Bahnhof offers some of our favorite summer sidewalk sales with winter merchandise deeply discounted. As they say, winter is coming.
Once the heat sets in, I like to spend a little time browsing art galleries. Personally, I love to introduce my children to art galleries. I’ve found that the littles connect with art and love to engage with the different work at the different galleries. Obviously, you know your children best. Please make sure your children are capable of keeping their hands to themselves in the galleries. Many of our galleries works are original and cannot be replaced.
By mid-day, you will likely be looking for another bite to eat or perhaps a cold beverage. Bars and restaurants up and down the street have created incredible atmosphere using the extra space provided by the street closure.
- Most recently the No Name Saloon introduced the No Name Yacht Club, which is every bit as amazing as you might imagine.
- Park City Provisions offers gourmet in an (almost) instant along with grocery store items and sundries.
- If you’re looking for more of an Asian flair check out Shabu right in the middle of the street.
Believe it or not, Main Street isn’t all about shopping and eating. We’re also home to experiences you won’t soon forget. The Escape Room offers a variety of rooms for you and your friends to ‘escape’. The creators of the Escape Room have recently released a few new products in response to the pandemic including The Detective Series created for at home entertainment and an Main Street experience that teaches players more about Main Street while allowing you to explore the street and safely distance yourself. Test yourself and your friends at the Escape Room this summer. Book your experience by calling 435-604-0556 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sundays on Main Street are all about taking it slow. Allow yourself the opportunity to explore somewhere you’ve never been. Try that restaurant you’ve been interested in, or do some Christmas shopping in August. Local merchants have recreated their business models to safely serve you during this time. We look forward to welcoming you to Main Street on Sundays or any other day of the week., and please remember to wear a mask and maintain your distance.
