Park City Ghost Tours

PARK CITY GHOST TOURS
 
Looking for something highly unique and unusual? Check out the Park City Ghost Tours.
The ghost stories of which you will hear during a Park City Ghost Tour have been collected over the past twelve years. The research was conducted by owners Rob and Lela Newey, retired history teachers and film maker, Erik Hutchins who has studied metaphysics and paranormal activity including human ESP, and the mysteries of crop circles.

Through research, interviews, field recordings and other cutting edge methods these three investigators chose 15 stories because they were the most exciting… and terrifying. If you are a believer in ghosts you will hear some of the best ghost stories ever to come out of the west; and if you don’t believe in ghosts, prepare to have your mind changed! Come see for yourself!

Meet at 415 Main Street (directly across the street from 412 Bistro Restaurant) to the bronze statue of the miner, where the PCGT Guide in costume will greet you. Please meet the guide at least 15 minutes prior to the Tour departure which is on the hour. (Winter Hours 7:00 p.m./ Summer Hours 8:00 p.m.) The Guide takes cash or credit at the spot. Dress appropriately for the weather. Park City Ghost Tours is an outdoor walking tour so please wear suitable clothing and comfortable walking shoes. We look forward to scaring you!

Welcome The Tour of Utah to Park City…

One of America’s premier bike races comes back to Park City when we host the Tour of Utah’s final leg on August 10. This will be Park City’s fourth year hosting the Tour’s climactic stage, a grueling test that throws 20 percent grades at riders before they cross the finish line on Historic Main Street.

Lower Main Street takes on a carnival atmosphere for the big day as kids cover the homestretch in chalk drawings, bike fans watch riders make their way toward town on big screen TV’s, restaurants and bars serve Park City’s summer enthusiasts and visitors of all kinds line the route’s final hundred meters to cheer the field across the line.

In the heart of all the action is our own Town Lift, loading and unloading right on Lower Main and running through the summer! Jump on Town for a scenic round-trip ride with a one-of-a-kind view of the course; ride up and hike directly back down to town; or get motivated by the race competitors and ride up with your bike to enjoy some of our trails!

3 Ways to Turn the Park City Kimbal Arts Festival in ton’s of fun!!!


 

Summer’s flying by faster than you can say “hot dog with mustard” – which means the Park City Kimball Arts Festival is just around the corner!

kimball fest.jpg

Every year, for a weekend in August, artists from around the country and the world come to Park City and turn Historic Main Street into a combination gallery and bazaar of sculptures, paintings, photographs and more – all in the shadow of Park City’s beautiful peaks. It’s a fantastic time to be in town, whether you’re here to add to your collection, just stroll the exhibits or simply grab a table at one of any number of restaurants’ outdoor decks and people-watch.

But if you want to experience the weekend to the fullest, you need to make us part of your festival schedule – and there’s so many ways to do it!

Stop at the bottom of Main Street for a scenic ride up and down Town Lift – our chairlift connecting downtown Park City directly to one of our peaks.

Or get over to our base area – just a few blocks away – and take advantage of over a dozen summer activities going on; including our alpine coaster, alpine slide (one of the longest in the world), our zip lines, Adventure Zone and Little Miners Park.

If you’re feeling adventurous, or just want to work off the amazing meals, rent a mountain bike or grab your hiking shoes and hit our hiking & biking trails – we have more than 70 miles of them! And with a variety of terrain, we have something for virtually any ability level.
