Try as they might, most cities simply cannot manufacture what Ogden, Utah's Historic 25th Street already has: authentic retro style. All the local merchants had to do was polish it up.
Over the past decade, the old rail center's funky brick buildings, creaky antiques stores, 1950s nightclub, and Chinese noodle house with a vintage neon sign have all been restored; some have been completely renovated.
Today the street's classic personality merges seamlessly with chic new boutiques and restaurants along the three-block stretch from Union Station to Washington Boulevard, making it the ideal destination for an autumn afternoon of shopping, sipping, and savoring.
Ruby & Begonia. WHAT: The entire inventory changes monthly in this gorgeous den of decidedly feminine frills for the home. You'll find exquisite baby clothes, jewelry, stationery, and seasonal holiday treasures too. WHEN: 10-6 Mon-Sat. WHERE: 204 Historic 25th St.; 801/334-7829.
