Overview

Old Town Park City: where the comforts of a 21st-century skier's mecca exist within the vigor and architecture of a 19th-century mining town. As a year-long resident of Park City, I know this town inside and out. My Sidewalk will lead you to best local hangout spots and explore a little of the boom-bust-boom of the town. We'll sip the best coffee in town, play with some mining apparatus, find some art, join in the apres-ski bar scene, visit a handmade chocolate shop, sample a flight of local whiskey, and more. I guarantee a great time.


About Your Guide

I am an avid skier and outdoor enthusiast, but enjoy a wide variety of activities including art and theater. I grew up on the east coast, and was lured to Utah by the mountains 9 years ago and have called it home ever since. When not in town, I enjoy traveling the world to learn about as many people and places as possible.


Where to Stay

Historic Park City is concentrated on Main St and Park Ave from 4th Street to 9th Street. Staying just a bit North of this area puts you closer to resort lifts, trailheads, and City Park.

  3. Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory

    This place is a favorite with locals and out-of-towners alike. How can you beat high-quality handmade chocolate, caramel apples and all sor…

  4. J GO Gallery

    In a town of dozens of art galleries, J GO is my favorite - not that I'm frequently in the buying spirit.

  5. Egyptian Theatre

    The Egyptian Theater was built in the height of Egypt-mania in 1926 (King Tut's tomb was discovered four years prior), and modeled after Wa…

  6. Dugins West

    If you need to pick up some Park City swag or souvenirs while in town, this is the shop I send friends to.

  7. No Name Saloon & Grill

    Welcome to _the_ classic Park City hangout.

  8. High West Saloon

    We end our walk at the country's only ski in and ski out whiskey distillery, but that isn't why we come.

    Thanks for the tour of Park City, Rob! This was a really interesting way to see the town from the locals' point of view. Super interesting takes on the Sundance film festival and how Park City shifted from a mining village to a ski town. Make another one!
