Ogden is a town in Utah's Wasatch Front.
The closest airport to Ogden is Salt Lake City International Airport.
Ogden is on Interstate 15, about 45 minutes north of Salt Lake City.
- Greyhound, 2393 Wall Ave., Phone: 801-394-5573, .
- The Utah Transit Authority (UTA), Phone: 1-888-RIDE-UTA (743-3882) . 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.
- 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.
- 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!
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.
- 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.
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!
- Best Western High Country Inn, 1335 W 12th Street, +1 801 394-9474, Toll-free: +1 800 594-8979, Fax: +1 801 392-6589, .
- Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites, 2245 S. 1200 W., +1 801 392-5000, .
- Motel 6, 1455 Washington Boulevard, +1 801 627-4560, Fax: +1 801 392-1878, .
- Ogden Marriott, 247 24th Street, +1 801 627-1190, Toll-free: +1 888 825-3163, Fax: +1 801 394-6312, .
- 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.
