Outside Magazine (Aug 2008) called Ogden "unpretentious and adrenalized ", when it listed Ogden in the top three towns of Where to Live Now: The 20 Best Towns in America, and the New York Times (Feb 14, 2009) stated, "Ogden, Utah, is on several lists today including the best place to do business, the best economy, and the hippest city in America.
