Provo offers a wide variety of entertainment, food options, and fun activities. Anyone who is looking for an up-paced lifestyle should find themselves in Provo. With live music, a diverse food range offered, Provo can quickly become a romantic get away for you and your significant other. As for the children, Provo offers many family oriented activities such as museums, water-parks, ice skating, and with the mountains so close, a hike up the Provo canyon trail can cure the wiggles in any young child. Looking for a relaxed evening? Look no further than Provo Center street. With its iconic antique style buildings, including the newly refurbished LDS Provo City Center Temple, a walk to remember is just in reach. So, to all those who wish to increase their love for life, the city of Provo waits for you!
I love the environment of Provo. I can easily say "hi" to neighbors and get along with others. The mountains surrounding Provo are beautiful and I love to hike! Provo does have the "LDS" culture which can be looked at as an amazing addition to an already beautiful city. People are constantly wanting to improve and get better and you can see people that you have grown up knowing, change for the better. In Provo, if you don't want to be involved with illegal or immoral things, it's very easy to avoid getting involved. If you are interested, I believe you can find what you're looking for anywhere, even Provo, Utah. Overall, I've loved growing up here and the only reason I would want to leave is to find somewhere that is even More submerged in the mountains because of my love for mountains.
I love that Provo is such a busy college town! The town shows so much pride for the local schools and those who attend. BYU in particular, has a long standing history in Provo and it means so much to community members. Game day is as big as any major holiday and people really pull out all of the stops to show their pride. I also really love the vibe that the university brings to the area. There is a high energy and excitement year-round that really makes the town come alive. This town is so built around the students, and it really just creates the most thrilling environment.
