I love how close the community is, we have representatives that actually listen to the people. Everyone comes together when there is a crisis, such as recently when the previous Mayor passed away. The whole town came together and supported his wife and family, organized situations to honor him, and the town was covered in green lights. The community is so connected and has great places to go to school, many places to work, and has an amazing outdoor recreation program. This community is tightly knit, and there is an abundance of creative things to do here. From the Dinosaur Museum to the Ice Sheet, Historic 25th Street and more! The beautiful Rockies lining the East with all of the wonderful snow, to the warm desert summers there is lots to love about living here in Ogden!

I love it here! It is beautiful , right next to the mountains and skiing with lots of lakes. Its good for whatever you want to be doing. There lots of fun things to do around even just in the city. Theres plenty of food places, indoor skydiving, indoor rock climbing, bowling, and indoor surfing. Lots of fun family things to do to keep you busy on a weekend.
Ogden is a good place to live. The crime rate isn’t to terribly high and there are so many delicious places to eat! There also is usually plenty of events or activities going on all the time! In my opinion, the downfalls would be the traffic and the cost of living. It’s insanely difficult to find an affordable place to live that is decent for children!
