Park City Ghost Tours
Park City was founded as a mining town, filled with miners that purportedly drank, gambled, frequented brothels, and committed crimes. Park City Ghost Tours’ guides delve into this illicit history during 70-minute walking tours. They investigate the sites most known for hauntings and chills while relaying the harrowing history of each. Tours begin nightly at 7 p.m. during the winter, when the sun is thoroughly below the horizon and it gets harder to tell the difference between a zombie and a parking meter.
