In fact, one of the best things you can do when in town is visit our historic main street where you’ll find unique shops, art galleries, local dining choices, boutiques, coffee shops and much more! Characterized by Victorian-style buildings and a quaint atmosphere, Main Street is a great example of some of Park City’s best features.

When looking for things to do in Park City, we always recommend stopping by Main Street’s 19th century thoroughfare, which has been (and still is) the premier shopping district in Park City since vendors set up shop to help sell miner’s their wares. With plenty of restaurants, bars and recreational service providers all housed behind colourful wooden storefronts on both sides of the street, you’re sure to find something to entertain you no matter what you’re looking for.
