The Golden Spike is a great spot in American history where east and west cane together, our country forever changed! Ghost towns now line the terrain, there's beautiful landscape and a chance to see replicas of the original locomotives. Very cool!

The Golden Spike Arena is the main structure on the Weber County Fairgrounds. It was built to host the annual Golden Spike rodeo, but also hosts a variety of other events and expos. The fairgrounds has ample and close parking for all events.

Always a funky, fun, family event venue. We have been here for rodeos, Germanfest, antique auctions, agricultural and roller derby! Clean bathrooms. Spacious. Good parking - easy place to visit.

Very interesting history on the railroad and the work involved progressing to the present day. Very worth taking your children to see.
