Best things to do in Odgen for three day visit


What are your suggestions for fun and the best things to do with my 19 year old daughter in and around Ogden for a short three day visit the first week in Sept.? We would like to hike and explore the town.

Thank you!

Have dinner on historic 25th street. Drive up to Bear Lake. Visit air museum at Hill AFB. Hike the Skyline Trail. Drive up to the Golden Spike in the Great Salt Lake. Better yet, drive out to Antelope Island.

Here's a TripAdvisor guide to activities:


Have fun.

The Salomon center is great for teens- though cost adds up: http://www.salomoncenter.com

We tried the flowrider and climbing wall, but Ifly looked very fun.

The Eccles Dinosaur park might be for a little younger crowd but I thought it was fun when we took our kids http://www.dinosaurpark.org

The Odgen Nature Center is a wonderful place to get away from the city and into nature http://www.ogdennaturecenter.org You'd never know it from the surrounding area but it is a good place for wildlife.

The old Fort Buenaventura www.utah.com/stateparks/buenaventura.htm http://www.co.weber.ut.us/parks/fortb/ doesn't have much going on normally, but it is an interesting place to contemplate the history of the west.

I think there is now a walkway along the river that you could begin at the fort. It might even go all the way up to the Dinosaur park??? So I looked it up and found this: http://trails.ogdencity.com The Odgen Riverparkway does look like it goes the whole length. There are some other interesting paths listed there.

The Peery Egyptian Theatre sometimes has good activities http://egyptiantheaterogden.com

The hot springs at the mouth of the canyon are a popular stop, but last news was the access was fenced off during some construction.

These are some great suggestions. Ifly at solomon center is so neat - but a little more pricey. Hill Airforce Museum is great. things2doinutah.com/hill-aerospace-museum/ There are more suggestions at www.things2doinutah.com.
