About Old Town in Park City

This section of town goes by many names. Some call it historic Park City while others just call it downtown or Main Street. We simply think of it as the best place in town for an afternoon of shopping! This area was established in the 1920s when Park City was a mining town. In fact, many of the buildings you see are original to that era. 

Browse an Art Gallery

You won’t have to look hard to find an art gallery in historic Park City. There is a wealth of cultural institutes and businesses lining Main Street. Kimball Art Center is an awesome place to start. It started as a small operation in an old garage, but since blossomed into an art hub. Visitors and locals alike love checking out their exhibitions, which rotate frequently. You’ll rarely see the same thing twice, so it’s a fantastic place to visit over and over again. Best of all, admission is free.

Shop ‘Til You Drop

If you love browsing through locally-owned boutiques, then historic Park City is for you! Here, you’ll find jewelry stores with an impressive stock, like Crosby Collections. Owners Bing and Vickie Crosby showcase stunning Native American pieces. If you’re in the mood to sip a mug of coffee while browsing, visit Atticus Coffee & Teahouse. Aside from the excellent selection of hot beverages, you’ll also find thousands of new and used books, gifts, and journals on their shelves. Finally, La Niche Gourmet and Gifts carries an inventory of home accessories, as well as espresso drinks and the best gelato in town!
