Fodor's Expert Review Historic 25th Street

Ogden Historic District/Site Fodor's Choice

Named one of the "10 Best Streets" in the United States by the American Planning Association, this quaint section of downtown Ogden has been the centerpiece of a 30-year urban-renewal initiative. A fun place to hang out for a couple of hours, 25th Street retains the color, flavor, and vitality of its 19th-century roots without the grime and crime that once made it infamous. From Union Station to Washington Boulevard, this three-block stretch includes more than a dozen restaurants, plus galleries, boutiques, and more. Historical markers tell the story of the rough pubs, brothels, and gambling houses that were the anomaly in heavily Mormon Utah a century ago. Relax, though, it's both safe and family-friendly today. The Historic 25th Street Business Association frequently sponsors special events that create a festival atmosphere.
