It’s The Main (Street) Attraction
Spend a day (or more!) exploring this totally revitalized and thriving downtown in the heart of the Corridor.
The Helper Historic District is a must see destination. The district is bookended with two beautifully restored old gas stations that welcome visitors to the downtown area.
A walk down Main Street will take you past art galleries, antique shops, restaurants, and so much more, all housed in beautifully restored old brick buildings.
Officially known as Utah’s Christmas Town, Helper is host to many events throughout the summer, fall, and winter. The popular Helper Mining & Railroad Museum is also on Main Street – plan a couple of hours for this visit as there is so much to see, do and learn in its many galleries!
Start your visit by downloading Helper’s very own walking tour which highlights the rich history and historical buildings along main street. Round out your visit with a walk along the river – pack a picnic lunch or eat at one of their amazing eateries, bring a tube to float the river, or cast a rod and try your luck at catching some of the fish swimming against the current.
Make sure you stay into the evening as Helper is designated as a dark sky community!
