My introduction to the Museum of Peoples and Cultures was when I was a kid in home-school. My mom would take us to all the best educational exhibits in Utah Valley, and MPC was one of our regular trips. While the museum has activities for all ages, it is a great place to take kids. The kids have a chance to learn about ancient cultures while...more

If one is in a hurry, fast food restaurants are great and the food is not always bad or mediocre. Often it is pretty good food (sometimes, it can be perfect for the immediate concern) and when you travel, you often find situations when a quick bite is needed. That is where the predictability of chains becomes a safe bet.I'd catalogue Einstein more...more

This cozy restaraunt has a charming atmosphere that takes you away from the traffic and noise outside. It is impossible to call any one item my favorite. You will, of course, find no beef here, but in addition to the many chicken dishes they have a fantstic selection of vegan and vegetarian dishes.more

The Provo Tabernacle provides an historic setting for a variety of concerts and stage productions. Of particular worth is the "First Friday" concert series featuring local artist.
Dress Code: Nice casual to business dress.
If you ever happen to visit Provo Utah around the 4th of July, they host an anual Hot Air Balloon Event that's pretty cool. For more pics, please check my travelogue on this Hot Air Balloon Show
BYU games are great because they are clean and you don't have the annoyance of drinking or cursing fans in the stadium. It's true American sports. If anyone coming out to the games is looking for a place to stay my family has some vacation rentals that are beautiful and would be perfect for large groups coming out for the game. Check out...more
Provo is the home of Brigham Young University (BYU). BYU football games are unique from all other football franchises with which I'm familiar. Games start with a prayer and are never played on Sundays. Sportsmanship and goodwill is displayed to a degree not seen anywhere else. The BYU marching band is excellent and the cheerleaders keep the crowd...more
Situated in the heart of Utah Valley between the east shore of Utah Lake and the towering Wasatch Mountains is the city of Provo. Mount Timpanogos (elevation 11,957 feet) dominates the northern view from the city. Other rugged mountains east of the city provide one of the most picturesque backdrops for a Utah city.Utah Valley was the traditional...more

The views around Provo are beautiful, it was January and there was frequent snow. Provo is sited between the Wasatch mountains and Bear Lake. The Olympic Hockey matches were being held here two weeks after I left. The rest of the Olympic events were held at Salt Lake and Park Cities to the north of Provo.more
