Ogden is a good place to live. Imagine the generic definition of "suburbia" and that what it is. There plenty of grocery stores nearby, and Mayfair (an outdoor mall) is only 15 minutes away. The beach and downtown are each about a 20 minute drive away. It is also very safe, the only sirens I hear are from the occasional fire truck. However, the road I live on has quite a bit of traffic because it is a cut-through between two major roads in town, but most of the side streets are very quiet.
Hurricanes ,thunder storms and accompanying tornadoes are the biggest weather problems. You need shorts and tank tops if you are sitting through a hurricane, lose power and air conditioning goes out!
