Nestled in the heart of town and adjacent to more than a century of rich, historical architecture, you’ll find Ogden's entertainment and recreation district: The Junction. If nearby Historic 25th Street is the heart of Ogden, then The Junction is a great place to feel the pulse of the town.
The Junction sits just north of Ogden’s Historic 25th Street District and just west of “The Vard.” Its western boundary is Lindquist Field (home of the Pioneer League’s Ogden Raptors), and it’s northern boundary is the LDS Temple. It features the same walkability as its neighbors and is THE place for entertainment in Ogden for all ages. Here, you’ll find the majority of Ogden’s family friendly attractions including its downtown Megaplex Theater, the Treehouse Children’s Museum, several restaurants and shops, the Hilton Garden Inn, and The Junction’s crown jewel, The Salomon Center.
The Salomon Center houses Flowrider (an indoor surfing venue), iRock (an indoor climbing venue), and iFly (an indoor skydiving wind tunnel). It is also home to Gold’s Gym, Fat Cats (a family fun center with bowling, arcade and bumper cars) and a couple of eateries.
No evening in The Junction is complete without a visit to Sonora Grill, where you’ll find unforgettable Mexican cuisine (and be sure to order one of their specialty margaritas made with locally distilled agave spirits from New World Distillery).
The Junction is a great place to start any downtown walking adventure since it offers abundant free parking and puts you within an easy walk of the LDS Temple, a Raptors game, the Ogden-Eccles Conference Center, Historic 25th Street and The Vard.
The Junction earned its name as part of one of Ogden’s earliest railroad nicknames… Junction City.
