Park City Ghost Tours

Park City Ghost Tours, Ghost Stories, Park City, UtahHear about Lizzy… the ghost that lives at the Imperial Hotel. Her husband shot her and her boyfriend as they lay sleeping in bed. (She likes men with beards!)

Learn about the Miner who fell down the mine shaft losing every limb on the 600 foot fall. (His favorite bar with the Alamo and he can still be seen drinking there today.)

Park City Ghost Tours reflects years of research into the colorful past of Park City. Originally a mining outpost, most people in Utah considered Park City “Sin City”.

With mining came hard drinking, gambling and brothels. And with this… came accidents, mysterious unexplained deaths and MURDER!
