We have loved living in Logan! As a young family we like to get outside and be active. With the mountains being so close we are able to go on many hikes, fish, horseback ride in the mountains, go camping, hunting, go walk around the dams, and so much more. For those that don’t like the outdoors as much there is so much to do in Logan, bowling, disc golf, fairgrounds, many food options, the Fun Park, Eccles Theatre, fun event are always going on around or in the Logan area. Cache Valley feels like home and isn’t too overwhelming as a college town.

If you are looking for a smaller town Logan is the place for you! Logan is a college town. Utah State University is located here. It is a very family oriented town. We are surrounded by beautiful mountains. Which means there is a lot to do outdoors for example: hiking, biking, camping, and rock climbing. However, those are just some of the activities available in the summer. We also have a few ski resorts close by and great spots in the mountains for snowmobiling as well as sledding. The valley is also growing; we recently had two new high schools built. The continual growth is in part caused by many Utah State alumni and their love for Logan.
I recently moved to Logan and I absolutely love it! I used to live in Salt Lake City, so Logan is a great change of pace. I love the small town feel of living here. It's a quiet town free from traffic and large amounts of crime. I honestly feel so safe here. I like the strong sense of community that resides here. People really care about each other, and there are a lot of fun events that bring people together. The one hard thing is that it can be harder to find a good job around here. One of my only regrets is not moving here sooner!
