#1 Historic Park City

Park City sits in the valley between Park City Mountain Resort and Deer Valley Resort. Once a silver mining town, it has seen booms and busts, as well as a devastating fire that destroyed a large portion of the town in the late 19th century. The Historic Park City area preserves its western mining heritage with a charming mix of boutiques, galleries and restaurants. The Park City Museum, located about midway on Main Street, features exhibits detailing the history of the mining town turned ski mecca and is also home to the official visitor center. What's more, a free trolley runs the length of street if your feet need a break.

Recent visitors loved the variety of shops, galleries, restaurants and bars in Historic Park City, noting there's something for every taste from souvenir joints to ski boutiques. Many recommended a visit to the museum to get a feel for the town's mining history, while others complimented the free transit and the convenience afforded by bedding down in this area. Families enjoyed the historical statues along the street and the availability of clean public restrooms.
