Ogden Christmas Village

WOW! This place is amazing. We had no idea that this light display would become one of our favorite adventures. Ogden City takes an entire block and covers it with lights. You can stroll through the area and look inside lots of little village houses--some that represent a historical site in Ogden or a company that has been around a long time. Our boys loved peeking in all the windows.

They also had a small train running which the boys had to ride. No adults allowed on this train which is different than our experience on the Polar Express in Lindon, but it was a free ride around the track twice. They also had a large Nativity and a concert going on. We didn't stop for the concert because we spent over an hour wandering through this village. There were so many things to see.

Riding the train!

Even without the fun village, the lights that cover this block are beautiful. My grandma came with us and said she usually just drives by to see the lights and doesn't take the time to walk. We were glad she walked with us today. This is definitely something to add to your must do list for Christmas. Best of all, it was free!

My grandma is the one in the hood!

He found his name on the "nice list"--good work buddy!

The nutcracker house
I loved the Carnegie Free Library house.
My grandma said it looks just like their library.

Both of our boys said they didn't want to leave.
Directions: Ogden's Christmas Village is located at 2549 S Washington Blvd. The Ogden City website has a link to help you get directions. Here are some simple ones. From 1-15 take Exit #340 (24th St/UT-53). Turn right off the exit. This road is UT-53/Pennsylvania Avenue but becomes 24th Street. Follow up to Washington Blvd. Hang a right and in a block you will see these amazing lights! 


  1. It's all over the Internet. Basically, downtown Ogden-- an entire city block between 25th and 26th South and Grant and Washington streets.

  2. That is cool! Maybe we will try to go this week. Nice of you to take Grandma, I bet she loved it!
