From Ogden, you reach the Shooting Star after a gorgeous drive up Ogden Canyon. Or from Salt Lake City, you can take an equally gorgeous drive up Weber Canyon past Snowbasin. At first glance, the Shooting Star looks like the best a little town like Huntsville could do, but step inside and the notion dissipates as you talk to a bartender, regular or someone who came from Germany, Ireland or some other far-off land just to drink here beneath huge mounted moose, elk and a (formerly) 298-pound St. Bernard. This is one of the country’s oldest continuously operating bars, having opened in 1879 and run right through Prohibition—it’s been well-documented on the Travel Channel and the Food Network. Speakin’ of grub: The Star burger is legendary.
