The World is Taking Notice of Ogden
Here’s what others are saying,

Welcome to Ogden. The town that Rock and Ice Magazine listed in its Top 10 Climbing Towns (Sept 2008); the place where Men’s Journal (March 2007) said you can "Do it All, Whatever the Season". Outside Magazine (Aug 2008) called Ogden "unpretentious and adrenalized", when it listed Ogden in the top three towns of Where to Live Now: The 20 Best Towns in America, and the New York Times (Feb 14, 2009) stated, "Ogden, Utah, is on several lists today including the best place to do business, the best economy, and the hippest city in America."
