Pleasant Grove is a good little city! I have grown up, and still reside here to this day. There is a great mix of young families with "experienced veterans" and it shows. There is still a great pride in the traditions of old Pleasant Grove such as the Strawberry Days festivities, maintenance and use of the city parks, and historic main street, pair that with the massive growth currently taking place in and around the city and you have a great place to live. Pleasant Grove is the perfect mix of historic, small town, rural Utah and the innovative big city life.

I really do like Pleasant Grove. It is a very clean and friendly town! I love how central it is. It's right between point of the mountain and provo, so everything is within a short commute! I love how it is very centered on local businesses, with a family owned shop on almost every main road. I feel like one thing that could be better is public transportation. It is 10 minutes away from either frontrunner station, and getting to them without using your car is a hard task. But overall, Pleasant Grove is a really nice home.
Pleasant Grove is a beautiful, friendly, quiet small town. Most everyone is of the same religious denomination, creating a homogenous culture that is incredibly welcoming to insiders but can be hard to integrate into as an outsider. The neighborhoods are well maintained, except for many of the roads. Pleasant Grove is constructed around a family-friendly experience with many parks and wonderful schools.
