Provo is a lakeside city in the state of Utah, just 40 miles south of Salt Lake City. Provo is a popular travel destination and lately many people moved here as well. Provo is home to the Brigham Young University, a private higher education institution, which hosts around 35,000 students annually. Provo and the Utah Valley was settled in the late 1700s and it soon became a larger village because Lake Utah and the mountains were excellent sources for the farming and lumbering industries. As soon as railroads reached Provo the first factory opened and Provo started to bloom. Ever since the city has kept developing and growing.
Provo is an expectational place for outdoor activities. Utah is well known for its amazing beauty and breathtaking nature scenes, so for those wanting to explore rocky hills, lakes, and lush green forests, then this is the perfect opportunity to do so. Start the outdoor adventure at Provo Canyon, where visitors can explore the Provo River Trail. The park offers miles and miles of hiking trail loops, both easy and more moderate trails, picnic areas, and of course an abundance of natural beauty. Most trails end at the stunning Lake Utah. On the way make sure to stop at Bridal Veil Falls-not to be mistaken with the waterfalls in Yosemite National Park that share the same name. It is a stunning, multi-tiered cascade. In Utah Lake State Park visitors can explore the rocky coast of the lake, go fishing, dip into the cold water on a hot day, or rent kayaks to check out the lake. Water skiing and jet skiing activities are also available and there are playgrounds for children. City Center Park has a gorgeous arboretum in which visitors can learn all about the different species of trees native to the area.
The top things to do also include the Provo City Center Temple, which is located in the heart of the city and is now an official historical site. Also, don't forget to visit Monte L. Bean Life Science Museum for an educational day of fun.
The best areas to stay in Provo are Lakewood and the East Bay, both are close to the lake and are easily accessible from the airport for those traveling by plane. Many restaurants, shops, and a couple of golf courses are in within walking distance so renters don't have to venture too far for food or entertainment.
The best time to visit Provo, UT is early September when there is very little to no rain, beautiful sunny days, and a nice, warm weather. Winter months definitely reveal a frozen, but beautiful, cityscape, be prepared with a jacket.
