Nestled picturesquely with the backdrop of the Ben Lomond to the north and the Mount Ogden to the east, this is one city that will especially captivate those having a thing for the outdoors!
So, what is Ogden tourism all about? Outdoors encompassing avenues such as parks and trails. The most important attraction, however, has for the longest time been the Hill Aerospace Museum, a specialty museum that is a part of the United States Air Force Heritage Program. Then there is the Union Station which is this beautiful railway station, absolutely worth a visit.
