Park City help needed

I will be in Park City in early Sept. I am the organizer of my high school class reunion and I am developing a list of activities. Is there a great walking tour of the city which I can include?
Thank you!

Hi cmc- certainly you can walk Main Street which is colorful with lots of shops and restaurants. There are lots of great hikes that I'm sure others can comment on. I would recommend a drive to Guardsman's Pass to see the mountains, trees, and foliage. It is dirt roads and can be a bumpy ride in parts. You can even go all the way to Brighton through there. I like stopping in the Silver Fork Lodge for a bite to eat on the way into Salt Lake City. How many people in your group? Are drives with caravans of cars feasible? I also highly recommend a drive to Mirror Lake, about an hour away. It is gorgeous that time of year with amazing foliage.

Thanks,ncounty. I appreciate the suggestions. The group is probably going to number around 100 but sadly many can no longer enjoy any substantial hikes. I was hoping there might be a walking tour which pointed out the historical and architectural interests along the way.

I think some of us will probably rent cars and go exploring. Mirror Lake is on my must see list!

It is going to be such a fun visit. Thank you for your help!

I haven't heard of tours of Park City, but you could try contacting the Park City Chamber of Commerce and see if they have recommendations. http://www.parkcityinfo.com/contact/

I called the Park City Historical Society and they agreed to schedule a walk for my group on the Saturday of our visit. Thanks, for your helpful suggestions.

Hi friends!

Had a great time winetasting.....perfect weather and the CA poppies were in bloom!

I was going to suggest calling the historical society. There is a gentleman who does give walking tours of the town. He's an expert. He also does hiking tours of the mine sites and structures in the mountains in the summer, but that won't be in your plans.

I'll talk to you all soon. Super busy right now!

Dayle, when you get a second tell me about the guy doing the mine tours. There may be some of my classmates who would like that. There is a link to Hal Compton who does that on the website for the historical society. Is that your man?
Are you still on for NC in the fall?

Welcome home. We'll be waiting for that trip report.

I think we can chime in on the shopping strategy, cmc! lol....


really though, I just went to a boutique in salt lake city called namedroppers which has new and consignment clothes. I ended up with two evening gowns, a gold lame short dress and a gorgeous beaded black skirt by french connection for $58 total!

but then, I also got two pairs of pants at the outlet mall for $58, lol.....and that was on sale!

cmcfong,

Yes Hal is the man!

Ugh, you guys. I can't do any shopping right now. I bought too much wine, but it's coming today! My home computer is unplugged too because I'm doing interior painting.....

Yes, still on for NC in Oct.
