  • Museum of Peoples and Cultures

    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...

  • Visit Timanogos Cave

    Timpanogos Cave is located in the mountain (Timpanogos) to the North of Provo. The hike to the cave is fairly easy (up a paved path) and you can pay to tour the cave with a guide.It is not open during the winter months.

Provo Restaurants

  • Great mochas!

    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...

  • awesome rice pudding

    how's this for a concept, all these guys do is rice pudding!this apparently is the first one they have opened, i was chatting with the owner, his wife is responsible for the recipes and he and his brother are business partners in it.They have about 16 different flavours of rice pudding which can be found on their website and if you get the larger...

  • Bombay House

    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.

Provo Sports & Outdoors

    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...

  • Brigham Young University Football

    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...

    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.
