Welcome to historic Downtown Ogden!

Nestled along the Wasatch Mountains, Ogden is home to more than 200 locally owned and independent businesses. When you visit Ogden, expect award-winning shopping and dining, as well as world-class arts, culture and community events. 

Ogden is well known for its close proximity to top-tier outdoor recreation. Hiking, biking, fishing, skiing, snowboarding and more are all minutes away from the heart of the downtown.

After you finish enjoying the outdoors, explore Ogden’s urban side. With the Utah Transit Authority (UTA) front runner, busses and free Ogden Trolley, there are endless ways to navigate the downtown and travel between Historic 25th Street, The Junction, Nine Rails Creative District and Washington Boulevard. Each of Downtown Ogden’s districts offer unique pieces of history, most notably in architecture, as well as shopping, dining, galleries and more. 

As the Ogden Downtown Alliance, we strive to connect the community to locally owned and independent businesses. We aim to increase economic vitality and community vibrancy in the downtown through arts, events, placemaking and destination development.

More About Ogden

Ogden’s independent spirit began more than 150 years ago when the town was first settled. With the completion of the Transcontinental Railroad, Downtown Ogden was changed forever. From the 1870s to World War II, Ogden was a major railroad town with nine rail system terminals. The business exchange and commerce from the railroad propelled Ogden to become the largest development north of Salt Lake City. The connection of the Union Pacific and Central Pacific rail lines rightfully earned Ogden  the nickname, “Junction City.” Visitors from all over the world began to travel west. As traffic through Ogden increased, the town began to grow, enticing a diverse group of shop owners and developers. Much of that early architecture remains today, most notably, Historic 25th Street, which is nestled between Ogden’s Union Station and the breathtaking Wasatch Mountains.
