MORMON CITY
Welcome to Provo, Utah.
Provo is located around 43 miles south of Salt Lake City, and with around 112,500 residents it is the third-largest city in the state of Utah. The city is situated along the Wasatch Front, between the cities of Orem and Springville. Provo was settled in 1849 by 33 Mormon families from Salt Lake City, and was originally named Fort Utah. The city it was renamed Provo after Etienne Provost, an early French-Canadian trapper who arrived in the area in 1825. Provo is a key center to technology development in Utah, and has been named an enticing city for new careers by Where To Retire Magazine. The city is is situated merely 13 miles from the Sundance Resort in Provo Canyon, and home to the Peaks Ice Arena, which served as a venue for the Salt Lake City Winter Olympics in 2002. Provo offers plenty to do and see for everyone, including cultural attractions and numerous landmarks. Head to the Provo River or the tranquil Utah Lake for various recreational activities, or spend a day perusing the many stores at The Shops At Riverwood the choice is yours! For a night out, visitors can enjoy an evening at the Covey Center for the Arts, a performing arts venue with plays, ballet, art exhibits and musical performances. Another great venue is the Brinton Black Box Theater, which features intimate plays for up to 60 guests. Provo is a city with many Mormons, and one of the more prominent features in town is the LDS Church's largest Missionary Training Center. Each week, nearly 500 LDS missionaries come to train at the center before departing to around 120 countries. In the 1990s, the center was expanded, and is today the largest of 17 such centers in the world. The city has plenty of festivals that display the community spirit, including the popular Independence Day fair that has featured notable guests such as Bob Hope, David Hasselhoff, Mandy Moore, Taylor Hicks and Carrie Underwood. Each fall, Provo also hosts two other large festivals, including Festival Latino Americano where the Hispanic culture is celebrated with food, vendors and performances.
