Logan Reviews

436 reviews
All Categories
Logan is a great community with a small-town feel. There are several charming neighborhoods and plenty of stores and restaurants to provide you with anything you might need. Logan is situated at the base of a mountain, and provides easy access to several canyons where mountain biking, skiing, rock climbing, hiking and many other outdoor activities are available. It is the home of Utah State University, a school renowned for its engineering, education and agricultural programs. Logan is a very family-oriented community, and therefore the night life is somewhat lacking, but during the day there is never a shortage of things to do. This is the ideal place for a lover of the outdoors!

It's been great! The people are kind and the neighborhoods feel safe. There are so many things to do around town: arts, outdoors activities, sports, take your pick. It's fun even just walking around town. One minute I'm by a hotel with a nice restaurant, take a right and I'm on a dirt road that looks like it belongs out in the country! You can drive up into the canyon for a day of hiking or head downtown for an evening at the theater. The public transit is not only clean and well run, but it’s free. There’s very little to dislike, unless you’re a city person who hates the slightly country feel.
I love living in Logan! It's located in a beautiful canyon, with friendly citizens. Though it is a little on the cold side in the winter, you find so many interesting people living in this college town, and there are outdoor activities everywhere, from bike-riding to rock-climbing to volleyball. Public transportation is 100% free within the city. Logan is the perfect size, not so small that it feels like a small town nor so large that it roars like a city. It has consistently been rated in the top 10 safest cities in the nation. Logan is a peaceful, busy, small city in a gorgeous location.
