Provo is the third-largest city in Utah. The metro area often ranks near the top of national polls regarding desirable places to live, work and play. Provo has grown quite a bit over the years with multiple new businesses and new homes. It is the heart of Utah county. It’s home to Brigham Young University and its museums, including the Monte L. Bean Life Science Museum. You will find plenty of restaurants, parks, schools and historical monuments within walking distance. This is the last city heading south from the northern county line that has not yet grown into the next southern city limits.
Provo bumps up against the city of Orem, making most Utahns refer to this area as the Orem/Provo metro area. Provo/Orem hosts BYU, and UVU. This makes the metro area feel like one big college town, with enough unique eateries and weekend activites/entertainment that will be sure to keep you busy!
