As summertime winds down, it’s time to make some last-minute summer memories. Located just a short trip away from Ogden, UT are various destinations for you to visit and soak in the last rays of summer sun. Here are a couple day trips from Ogden, UT – which you can stretch to weekend trips, if you’d like – that we recommend.
Heber Valley, Utah
The wonderous Heber Valley is located only an hour and 15 minutes away from Ogden, making it the perfect day trip, and sits next to the Wasatch Mountain State Park. While visiting, you can take a scenic ride on the Heber Valley Historic Railroad Line, take a dip in the hot spring Homestead Crater, and round out the day by grabbing some food at Heber Valley Artisan Cheese. If you want to extend your trip, you can explore nearby Deer Creek State Park and Jordanelle State Park.
Bear Lake, Garden City, Utah
Bear Lake State Park is located a mere two hours from Ogden and is well worth the trip. Colloquially known as the Caribbean of the Rockies, Bear Lake boasts beautiful blue waters because of the lake’s limestone deposits. In the park, you can camp, spend some time on the water, explore the numerous hiking trails, or even do some cave exploring.
