Historic 25th Street

A three-block historic district. Stroll through history as you visit restaurants, art galleries, and shops. Historic 25th Street hosts outdoor events throughout the year, including a farmers' market (July through September), zombie walks, an event called Witchstock, and car shows. Inside [http://theunionstation.org/ Union Station], on the west end of the street, there are three museums. The Utah State railroad museum is a remembrance of Ogden's railroad history, and a lot of fun for kids. The Browning-Kimball Classic Car Museum is a smaller car museum with several restored antique cars. Finally, upstairs, is the John M. Browning Arms Museum, which features hundreds of rifles and other guns from the Browning family collection. For one price, all three museums can be visited.

Mason Jar Coffee Roasters

The Mason jar is inside an old Chevron gas station building, the outside leaves something to be desired, however inside is a comfortable coffee house that roasts all their coffee in house. Not much in the way of community involvement (no cork board with local fliers posted, etc) but passionate about the coffee. If what you value is the content of the cup the Mason jar is the freshest coffee in Ogden.

Ogden Eccles Dinosaur Park

A favorite of all kids visiting Ogden. It has over one hundred realistic full-sized dinosaur sculptures. There's even an animatronic tyrannosaurus rex! And while you're in the neighborhood, stop by [http://rainbowgardens.com/ Rainbow Gardens], one of the largest gift shops in the West.

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. There are several trail heads along the east side of the valley.
