WCSX City of the Week

Utica, Michigan has small town charm and offers so much. A great historical downtown, Utica also is home to the modern The USPBL Jimmy John's Field and so much more.

Utica is one of my favorite communities to visit. Everyone of our communities has something special to offer, but my favorites are the ones with charming downtowns and many nods to their history. That is Utica.

What makes Utica more amazing, is that they honor their history despite having had the downtown mostly burn to the ground TWICE. in 1904 and 1905 Utica had devastating fires. Despite this, Utica or maybe because of this, Utica takes great care of their history.

Another of my favorite places to visit is Jimmy John’s Field. It’s such a wonderful baseball experience designed to be the most family friendly experience imaginable, Jimmy John’s is also a much more affordable option for taking the family out for a night enjoying America’s favorite past time.

Jimmy John’s Field in Utica. WCSX has been a huge fan of the field for years now. We love going out for the ballgames!

WCSX has visited this amazing community many times. Big Jim’s House first visited the Shamrock Pub during Restaurant Road Trips. Listener told us their favorite restaurants and Jim and Ryan taste-tested. Shamrock’s burgers are a must-have!

Utica- Home of The Utes!!? (Haha!) WCSX City of the Week returned to Utica after a too long absence! It was great to see long time friends of the station, and make new friends too! We visited of three of our favorite locations in historic downtown Utica- USA Tire, Shamrock Pub, and a new location, Sarge & Red’s Toys and Collectibles. (Dude! They have an awesome store!)

Big Jim O’Brien decided to join the patio party at The Shamrock and he brought a couple of his new Big Jim’s House State of Seger Bob Seger tribute t-shirts and a few “Boot Check” stickers, too!
