Ogden Makes List of Best Places To Live

Men's Journal lists Ogden, Utah, as one of the best places to live, in this article in its April, 2010 issue. Below are excerpts.

Ogden isn't just another town blessed with world-class adventure on its doorstep. This once run-down railroad town has a government sponsored mandate to grown around adrenaline sports. “The goal of Ogden is to become the capital of high-adventure recreation,” says Mayor Mathew Godfrey.

Within five minutes of downtown is rock climbing, access to more than a hundred miles of trails, plus two whitewater kayak parks. Just a 20-minute drive up canyon, Snowbasin offers all the famed powder of Utah's Wasatch resorts without Colorado's famed lift lines.

When orthopedic surgeon and mountain-bike fanatic Dan Byck was weighing the options on where to move his practice from Washington State, Ogden topped the list. “Most desirable places have too many doctors who do what I do, but there was still a chance to get in early here,” he says.
