Welcome to Ogden, host city of the 2020 APCO Western Regional!  Ogden is located at the base of the beautiful Wasatch Mountains, about 35 miles north of Salt Lake City.  There’s so much to see and do, like exploring the many restaurants and shops along Historic 25th Street, seeking adventure in the mountains only minutes away, or fly fishing in the Ogden or Weber Rivers. 

Whether you’re channeling your inner lumberjack learning how to throw axes, visiting the Hill Aerospace Museum, Treehouse Children’s Museum, or Union Station Museum, or walking or biking along our many riverside and mountain trails, you’ll understand what Ogden’s 87,000 residents already know – Ogden is a great place to live and visit.
