Park City is a city known for its outdoor adventures. During the winter the many Park City activities make the area becomes a skier’s paradise, and during the spring, summer, and fall the mountains surrounding the city are full of trails for hikers, bikers, and their furry, four-legged friends. If you are visiting during the winter months, here are some of Park City’s “hidden gems” to check out.
Spend a Day on the Mountain
There is a free shuttle service from downtown Park City to the top of the mountain. Make sure to stop at Miners Camp mid-way down the mountain to warm up with some hot food and drinks. The restaurant serves cafeteria-style food like pizza, chicken nuggets, and gyros. Miners Camp also has a full bar with a selection of local and regional craft beers. After a day on the mountain, take the Home Run Trail back to the base of the mountain. This long, easy trail offers amazing views and is the perfect way to end your day.
Take a Stroll Down Park City Main Street
Main Street is the lifeline of Park City. The street runs through the middle of the downtown area and is lined with boutiques and some of the town’s finest restaurants.
Riverhorse on Park City Main Street is a popular location among locals. This fine dining institution is one of the most popular on the historic street and people from all over the world come to try its unique cuisine. Riverhorse’s rotating menu features seasonal American-style dishes. Reservations are strongly encouraged, and the restaurant opens every day at 5 p.m.
If you are looking for a less formal option, consider eating at Purple Sage. This casual Western-style restaurant is located in the historic Rocky Mountain Bell Telephone building, which was built in the early 1880s. The menu features classic comfort foods with an innovative twist like seared duck, chili mac n’ cheese, and Yukon gold mashed potatoes.
