25 Things to do on Historic 25th Street

Can you do it all in one day?

Whenever I go to a new city the first thing that I want to know is where do the locals go? Here in Ogden it's Historic 25th Street

If you visit you might hear the locals refer to this street as 25th street, two-bit street, H25 (pronounced H two-five) or downtown. Once notoriously known for brothels, opium dens, gambling and boot legging; today the street is a mecca for art collectors, foodies, shoppers, nightlife and entertainment. 

Here are 25 things to do on 25th street. Do you think you could do them all in one day? 

1. Take a stroll through the Municipal Gardens
2. Play a painted piano on the street
3. Indulge in breakfast, lunch and dinner
4. Become an artist at Liquid Canvas
