Ogden
The city was named after fearless fur-trader and adventurer, Peter Skene Ogden, who explored the untamed area in the 1820s. Since then, Ogden has seen poverty and prosperity, conflict and celebration. Today, although a more subdued and modern place, the city is still big on action and adventure the whole family can enjoy. Take the children to ogle more than 100 life-size replicas of prehistoric creatures at the Ogden Dinosaur Park and Museum. Or head to the Tree House Museum, one of the best of its kind in the USA. Adults will find plenty to enjoy on local golf courses or hiking trails in the summer, and everyone will love the local winter ski resorts. A grand old depot, Union Station is a must see for history... more The city was named after fearless fur-trader and adventurer, Peter Skene Ogden, who explored the untamed area in the 1820s.

A grand old depot, Union Station is a must see for history buffs and anyone interested in trains and railways. Be sure to stroll along 25th Street downtown. This historic block was the centre of activity in the early 20th century and is home to many restored buildings from the 'railroad era'. The street also boasts an eclectic mix of restaurants, one-of-a kind shops, antique shops and art galleries. less
