Community Spotlight: Welcome to Ogden

Once a lawless frontier town, Ogden maintains a fiercely independent spirit, but now with a more focused mountain-to-metro personality. Ogden is rugged and rustic with an urban chill. Named one of the Best Places for Business and Careers and Fastest Growing City in America by Forbes magazine, Ogden offers the amenities of a city with the backyard access to one-of-a-kind outdoor recreation. Corporate headquarters of national brands including Browning Firearms, Swift Trucking, and ATK, and bordered by Ben Lomond Peak, Mount Ogden and Strawberry Peak, Ogden is a thriving economic center with a revitalized downtown and grand natural skyscrapers. 

With 38 recreational parks in the local area, Ogden has a playground for everyone. Whether it is rock climbing or water sports; hiking or biking; camping or skiing; Ogden is a high adventure community. Beyond its recreation and booming economy, Ogden’s charming Historic 25th street offers eclectic shopping, dining and nightlife and plays host to classic car shows and farmer’s markets. From performances at Peery’s Egyptian Theater, Utah’s only “movie palace”, and the museums at Union Station, there’s a bevy of cultural attractions as well.

Charming historic neighborhoods offer more accessible and affordable housing options than Salt Lake City to the south. The Jefferson Avenue Historic district boasts distinct Victorian style homes while the Eccles Avenue Historic District features Prairie style architecture. Newer neighborhoods offer options for every buyer from condos to town homes to single family homes in traditional and contemporary styles.
