    What to do in Ogden

    My job will take me to Ogden for a few days later this week. I am looking for suggestions for what to do. Normally we check out gun shops and outdoor stores, but are there other outdoorsy things that anyone on here would recommend?
    Arriving Wednesday early afternoon and leaving again on Friday, mid morning.

    There are more things to do in Ogden than you could do if you were going to be here for a month. Here's the long list: http://www.visitogden.com/Events

    There's also a large entertainment complex on 23rd Street and Kiesel Avenue, with arcades, a bowling alley, snack bar, pizzeria and a couple of restaurants (actually the entire area from 2rd Street to 25th Street is replete with restaurants). There's also a big megaplex movie theater called "The Junction" on 23rd & Kiesel (this is the main "downtown" area).

    The biggest gun shop in Ogden proper is Impact Guns (2710 South 1900 West, Ogden, UT 84401, Ph: 801-393-2474). Impact also has an indoor range with about 14 shooting points. Then there's the Sportsman's Warehouse in Riverdale (about 5 miles from downtown Ogden) at 1137 W. Riverdale Road, Riverdale, UT Telephone: (801)334-4000, GPS : N 41 10.456 W 112 00.427 which has the second largest selection of firearms in the Ogden area. Enjoy your stay! Pax...

    Appreciate the recommendations. In addition, are there parks or scenic hikes that can be done in a few hours? Outdoorsy things?

    Re: What to do in Ogden

    I suggest visiting Union Station.

    Great railroad museum, *AND* houses the John Browning museum upstairs.

    http://theunionstation.org/index.php...rearms-museum/

    If the docent is still there that was there when I visited in 2011, there's nothing that guy doesn't know about any firearm in there, or Browning in general.

    Ogden has a good sized park between 25th & 26th Streets, and there are several other parks in Ogden. There is Ogden and Weber Canyons, Ogden is my personal preference -it's a nice drive along the river.

    I appreciate the suggestions. We will be on our way soon, so look for a couple of out of towners roaming about aimlessly.

    Went to Sportsmans Warehouse, Impact Guns, Smith & Edwards, Kents Shooting Supplies, several restaurants and our hotel. The guy at Subway asked if we were LE. Told him we were just concerned citizens. He smiled and said Cool. At Kent's, we were just browsing when a Sheriffs deputy came in. Walked right by me, may have noticed but never said a word. He was buying a few things and the whole group was involved in gun discussions. The whole time he never mentined the gun or acted in any way like he thought it was wrong. In fact he acted more like he was in favor of it. I held the door for him as he left, wished him well and we all went about our business.
    Walked the river trail for a few miles then drove up the canyon and back down.
    All in all, my visit to Ogden has been very pleasant. Thanks for the suggestions.
