What Bert Has To Say About Provo-Orem Metro Area


Provo is at the south end of a long complex of cities, towns and suburbs extending in both directions from Salt Lake City. Home to Brigham Young University, with 32,000 students, Provo has a strong college-town feel. Orem, just north, is a suburban family community. Provo and Orem are clean and relatively modern in look and feel but traditional in values and culture. There is some industry and commercial development in the immediate area, mostly high tech and service firms.
