Utica is a basic, calm, simple, family-oriented city with moderate nightlife. First, here are some highlights of the city. The Boilermaker 15K Road Race, which occurs every summer in July, is Utica's most popular event. But at the same time, it comes and goes very quickly. It's a road-race for 10,000+ runners with an after-party after the race. Thousands of people from all over the world descend on the city for this enormous 1-day event. Another popular staple is Saranac Thursdays, which occurs every Thursday evening during the summer on Varick St, the city's west side. The street is packed with great nightlife, bars, and live music. Other than that, that's it for summer activities for the most part. Other interesting spots include The Utica Memorial Auditorium for pro hockey, The Stanley Theatre for live concerts, Munson Williams Proctor Institute for museum-related activities, and The Utica Zoo. There are also many city parks, including Proctor Park on the city's east side, which is the most well-known city park for outdoor leisure, walks, baseball and basketball. In the fall during October is the infamous Utica Zombie Walk, where hundreds of people dress up like zombies and walk downtown at night. During the winter, there are various activities at Val Bialas at the Memorial Parkway, including skiing and ice skating. Utica experiences all 4 seasons and the weather varies considerably. Economically, it's very reasonable to live and raise a family in Utica. However, there is not much excitement in daily living, and the weather is usually overcast, gloomy, and depressing. There are plenty of restaurants and mom-and-pop food places available. Utica is known for its food, especially tomato pie, chicken riggies, greens, and half-moons. In conclusion, if you're looking to settle down with a family, where living is cheap, with not much going on anywhere, where food is king, and if you don't mind the bad weather, then Utica is for you.
