This is the place! - 7/31/2020
I was born in Provo and have lived in a few cities nearby my entire life. While I was raised in a semi-Mormon family, I am no longer LDS. I haven’t been for about 20 years. There have been a few times where my family and myself have felt judged for not being LDS; but overall, people are nice and friendly. Most people are not judgemental. And, if they truly follow the LDS doctrine, they should not be judgemental of others. Besides, over the years, I have noticed that there are fewer and fewer Mormons in Utah.
It truly is a nice place to live. It’s very beautiful being surrounded by the mountains. We do have a very low crime rate. There is amazing skiing less than a 45 minute drive from Provo (in Park City). If you’re up for traveling south for a few hours, we have breathtaking National Monuments and canyon land that you won’t see anywhere else in the world. I may be a bit biased (and have only actually seen about half of the United States in person); but I think that Utah is the Read More

Nice small town. - 2/10/2018
I live in Mississippi and im 15. Im looking for somewhere to relocate when I graduate college. Even though im 15 and I have a long way ahead before I even graduate High-school I still feel the need to travel when Im older. This place feels like a nice place to live. I heard there little crime and outdoor activities are very common. Read More

Peaceful, but full of L.D.S - 10/17/2012
I've lived here for about 12 years now, and I got to say it's a very peaceful place to live. Well, It depends what you're doing every day and where you live in Utah. But, there are a ton of mormons, and probably everyone of your friends will be mormon, maybe catholic if there from somewhere else. I still like it here, because I don't find there being any racism or anything like that. At least not for me. Read More

Wide variety of outdoor and cultural activities - 6/26/2010
Nestled between Utah Lake and the Wasatch Front mountains, there are lots of great outdoor activities available. Provo is home to Brigham Young University, which is known for its fine arts and wonderful cultural displays. In both cases, much of it is available at little or no charge.  Read More

A great place to live - 5/27/2010
I think the biggest thing that makes this place great is the quality of the people. Most of the people you come across are good, honest, quality people. Of course, there's always a few bad apples, you get that anywhere, but I think they are fewer and farther between Read More

Stay away unless you're Mormon - 9/15/2009
I grew up in Provo, UT. Despite the scenic mountain surroundings, living there can be tough unless you are a Mormon. Everything revolves around the LDS church from boyscouts to neighbor parties. You can't have a 5 minute conversation with anyone without a reference about LDS life coming up. I've been asked often in interviews (which is illegal) if I was Mormon, and kids often don't want to befriend your children or allow their kids to play with "heathen" children on Sundays. That's just a small example. There is a saying used often in Utah, "If you don't like it, you can leave." That sums it up. "It" refers to the Mormon Church dominating every aspect of your life, whether you are part of the church or not. If you don't like Mormonism crammed down your throat everyday for your life, leave. Thank God I Read More
