Provo, UT

Though Provo is technically what would be considered a “college town” due to the percentage of residents involved in some way with the activities at Brigham Young University (BYU), the party atmosphere seen in most college towns is absent in Provo. This is due to a unique honor code followed by all students that prohibits the use of alcohol, tobacco, and other addictive substances. The school hosts roughly 34,000 students a year which accounts for about a third of the population of Provo. If you are moving to Provo in the coming months, you are sure to enjoy the mellow, intellectual atmosphere present in the city by default.

One thing you can do to immerse yourself into the lifestyle you will encounter after moving to Provo, UT is plan an afternoon in historic downtown. Thirty-five city blocks of various retail, professional offices, restaurants, and mixed residential spaces make up this quaint area. Whether you just have a lunch break or you can spend an entire day, this is the perfect way to get a taste of the new city you will soon make your own. Many would say Provo is the coolest city in the Utah Valley, the stretch of land that includes Provo, Salt Lake City, Ogden and surrounding suburbs.
