The Fantastic Fruitway and Historic Heber Valley Railroad
Date: Tuesday, July 18
Time: 8 a.m. - 5 p.m.
DESCRIPTION: Join us for an exciting and enlightening adventure featuring some of the most beautiful scenery in Northern Utah. First, we’ll drive down the section of Highway 89 known as the Fruitway to the route’s oldest family-owned fruit stand, Pettingills. Jean Pettingill Davis will teach us about what it takes to coordinate the cornucopia of fruits and vegetables they offer and the challenges of growing hundreds of acres of fruit and vegetables. Brace yourself for a taste of heaven with a fresh fruit milkshake made on site. Next, we’ll be on our way to historic Heber Valley Railroad where we will jump aboard their 1899 steam engine and travel through dramatic mountain scenery on a 90-minute train ride. Entertainment and lunch will be served on board the train, fondly known as the “Heber Creeper.” As we head home we’ll drive down historic Main Street in Park City for a quick glimpse of the rowdy town’s past.
