Provo is the third-largest city in Utah. It is located in the southeast region of the state, an area known as Utah’s Dixie. Provo is well known for its large population of college students attending Brigham Young University (BYU), which is owned and operated by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS).
Provo is located in the Utah Valley at the base of Mount Timpanogos. The geography of the town is very hilly, with steep hills covering much of the city. These hilly areas are often still covered by lakes and ponds that formed over many years as part of Provo’s history.
Provo’s main attractions are the many points of interest surrounding Brigham Young University. The Provo City Center Temple, the Provo Tabernacle, historic Pioneer Village, the Museum of Mormon History, and BYU’s Museum of Art are all located in or near downtown Provo. A lot of people go to BYU’s Museum of Natural History and to the Spencer W. Kimball Tower because they’re always free and about half an hour away from downtown Provo.
