Ogden is a town in Utah's Wasatch Front.

Contents

Get in

By air

The closest airport to Ogden is Salt Lake City International Airport.

By car

Ogden is on Interstate 15, about 45 minutes north of Salt Lake City.

By bus

  • Greyhound, 2393 Wall Ave., Phone: 801-394-5573, [1].
  • The Utah Transit Authority (UTA), Phone: 1-888-RIDE-UTA (743-3882) [2]. operates an extensive bus system all across the Wasatch Front, so you can easily and readily reach Ogden by public transportation from almost anywhere along the Wasatch Front.

Get around

See

  • The train museum, you can even hop in some of the old engines.
  • Dinosaur park. Strange concept, but the kids love it. There's even an animatronic tryrannasaurus rex!
  • The baseball field definitely has a small town charm.

Do

  • Great trails. Go east to the foot of the mountains for awesome hiking and mountain biking trails. Not as good as those in Park City, but not as crowded either. Plus, you're not gonna see some cowboy (yep, some idiot without a helmet, but with a 10 gal hat) attempting to ride up in cowboy boots in Park City!

Buy

The mall has the movie theatres, and Costco is were the locals go to eat. With a membership you can get a 50 gallon drum of mayonaise and fill up on all the samples.

Eat

  • Kosmos Burger, 1636 Washington Blvd. Family owned, walk-up window type restaurant with picnic tables outside. It's sometimes dark inside and nobody is in sight, but they're still open and will come help you if you knock on the window.

Drink

Downtown is supposed to be the place to be, but its dying. Go to the Newgate mall area. The best bar is across the street from Macy's!

Sleep

Get out

  • Snowbasin is around the corner. Nice place to ski, but it doesn't get as much or as good snow as they do in Park City/Salt Lake city. And theres no lodging on the mountain itself.
This article is an outline and needs more content. It has a template, but there is not enough information present. Please plunge forward and help it grow!
