- Ski Ogden Park City gets the accolades, but locals know that the snow is just as good, the slopes less crowded, and the prices much more reasonable at Snowbasin, Powder Mountain, and Nordic Valley. The most memorable moments on skis in the 2002 Winter Olympics happened here, not in Park City.
- Hill Air Force Base One of Utah’s largest employers, the base provides worldwide logistics support for America’s F-16s and A-10s. Look for Hill’s fighters crisscrossing the skies, or get up close with more than 90 air- and spacecraft at the Hill Aerospace Museum.
- Logan Canyon National Scenic Byway A favorite with locals and visitors, the winding Highway 89 from Logan to Bear Lake is best enjoyed in the fall when changing leaves create stunning panoramas of red, gold, and green. The route offers scenic picnic spots and fun hiking trails, with plenty of historic sites to explore along the way.
- Historic 25th Street, Ogden Once home to brothels and unsavory rail-side establishments, the community of Ogden has banded together to revitalize 25th Street with art galleries, museums, restaurants, and several unique shops. Downtown Ogden also has one of minor-league baseball’s most beautiful ballparks.
- Bear Lake A favorite retreat on the Utah-Idaho border during the hot summer months, this modestly developed lake has a reputation for azure-blue water and the best raspberry shakes in America.
