Fun in Park City in June

A group of friends (late 20s/early 30s) are running the Utah Valley Half Marathon in June in Provo. We have been tipped off that Park City might be a good place to stay after the race on Saturday night as we are looking for some nightlife. Can someone comment on the nightlife? What are some fun things to do in Park City and where is the best place to stay? Appreciate the help!

Park City is a ski town with about 8,000 year round residents. Main Street is a densely packed historic district with several bars and restaurants within walking distance. No Name Saloon has a rooftop bar and I heard the Boneyard will have one by summertime.

There are dive bars like O'Shucks to more clubby like Downstairs and Ciseros. For micro breweries try Wasatch and Squatters. High West is Utah's only distillery and shouldn't be missed.

You could stay at the nearby Sky Lodge, Caledonian, or Marriott Summit Watch. If you'd like to be more on the mountains and further from Main Street, try the Montage at Deer Valley.

I can't comment on the particular weekend you'll be in town on terms of people out and about. But June should have enough going on to make it a worthwhile stay.

Downtown SLC would be another option with a blooming nightlife and larger full-time resident population to support it. It's just more spread out than a singular street and easier to miss options, if you don't know where to find what you're looking for.

Yes, definitely the place to be. It's less than an hour drive to Provo. You may want to think about staying night before the race, too, to avoid moving around. As Shake801 noted, you want to be downtown on historic Main Street. Good hotel choices. Lots of restaurants, clubs and bars. You won't find so much in Provo. And it's an easy 45 minutes for you back to the airport on Sunday.

I think that's the weekend of June 14. Summer will be getting in full gear about then. On Sunday there's a huge street fair (every Sunday), the Park Silly Sunday Market. It's setup along a 2-3 block section of lower Main Street. Lots of fun and would be a nice way to cap off your weekend. Take a late afternoon flight home and enjoy listening to live entertainment in the beer garden Sunday.

Have fun.
