Welcome to Golden Spike Empire Utah

As the setting of progression for the United States in the middle 1800s, Utah’s Golden Spike Empire is a destination teeming with history. Here in Northern Utah, the Golden Spike of the Transcontinental Railroad was pounded into the ground connecting the East and West Coasts. Now nearly 150 years later visit Promontory to take a glimpse back in time at the Golden Spike National Historic Site where two steam engines meet to commemorate the railroad’s completion. Hike along the Promontory Mountains as they jut out into the Great Salt Lake, and catch a great view of wildlife and the impressive lake itself. A day on Historic 25th Street in Ogden gives you access to unique shops and restaurants that will make you want to stay for even longer, in this perfect vacation destination!
