Great out of the way National Park. Nice piece of history explaining how the two coasts were joined by railroad. Fun steam engine demo. A must see for train enthusiasts. A should see for anyone.

We stumbled across quarter horse racing here and had as much fun watching the people as the horses! The audience seemed to be a mix of Latinos and whites, ranchers and laborers, and of course all were horse lovers.

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.
