The Provo area boasts arguably the most dramatic backdrop in the Wasatch Front. Mount Timpanogos — nearly 5,300 feet of prominence and an 11,752-foot summit — is an inspiring citadel of solid rock, the centerpiece to the Utah Valley stretch of the Wasatch Front.
Today, Provo and the larger Utah Valley sets itself a part as a place for innovation in tech, health care, education, as well as place for easy access to Provo Canyon's offerings, including Sundance Mountain Resort.

Insider Tips

Getting to Provo

Provo is accessible via several exits off I-15, about an hour south of Salt Lake City International Airport (which also places Provo about an hour closer to Utah’s Mighty 5 national parks, including Arches and Capitol Reef, each less than 3 hours away). The Utah Transit Authority’s FrontRunner Commuter Rail stops at Provo Central Station, less than a mile from the Utah Valley Convention Center and Center Street dining and nightlife. Provo Airport offers nonstop flights through Allegiant Air to Oakland, Phoenix and Los Angeles.

Where to Eat in Provo

The Heirloom Group headlines the culinary scene with their farm-to-table (and appropriately named) Communal Restaurant, Pizzeria 712 and Mountain West Burrito. The Black Sheep Cafe combines flavors of the southwest with Native American cooking traditions. Black Sheep uses local producers when possible and emphasizes the Three Sisters of squash, corn and pole beans. Also find great Indian food at India Palace or Bombay House, Chilean cuisine at Pantrucas and Sri Lankan at The Banana Leaf. Looking to hike and dine in the same day? There's plenty of great options to immerse yourself in the unique duality of the city. Also, check out the surprisingly multi-cultural food scene in Provo.
