Seated in Weber County, Utah, Ogden is north of Salt Lake City and east of the Great Salt Lake. In 2014, it had an estimated population of 84,300, the U.S. Census Bureau reported.

Historically, the transcontinental railroad was completed in Promontory, UT (in 1869); Promontory is about an hour by car to the northwest of Ogden.
