The streets of Brigham City are lined with majestic sycamore trees, an arch proclaiming “Gateway to the World’s Greatest Wild Bird Refuge” and a historic downtown Main Street that visitors say is quite charming. Travelers passing through with the Tour of Utah will find restaurants and shops unique to the city.

Located on Main Street is Peach City, an old-fashioned drive-in restaurant.

“Brigham City is a cute little town with tree-lined streets,” said Kevin Hall, the owner of Peach City, “and there’s not a lot of drive-in restaurants anymore, where you get the good, personal service and the homemade ice cream and the fresh cut fries, type of deal. So I’m excited for them to come and see that we still do it the old-fashioned way.”

He said to prepare for the large amount of people, he will order 30 extra gallons of ice cream and order 25 percent more food than normal.

Also preparing for a lot of tourists is the Hampton Inn. Manager Seth Taylor said there will be a large group of travelers following the tour who will be staying at the hotel. He said he and his staff are ready for the busy week.

“On a sellout, we know what it takes,” Taylor said, “and to be honest, most of the summer we have high occupancy, so we’re pretty used to it. So the tour is a wonderful, exciting event to have in town and we’re going to have a lot of people.”

This is the first time Brigham City will host a leg of the Tour of Utah. The bikers will be coming through August 1, starting on Brigham City's Main Street and ending at Snowbasin Resort near Huntsville.
