About Provo

Just over 40 miles from metro Salt Lake City and in the heart of Utah Valley, Provo is the third-largest city in the state. The community’s mountainous surroundings paired with its off-the-charts food scene and vibrant tech community give off an energetic vibe. It’s no wonder several billion-dollar tech companies have chosen Provo as their headquarters, including Vivint Smart Home, Novatek, Nu Skin Enterprises, and Qualtrics. Brigham Young University (BYU) also calls Provo home, adding more fuel to the young, adventurous, go-getter scene. In 2015, Forbes cited Provo among the "Best Small And Medium-Size Cities For Jobs”, and the Bureau of Labor Statistics found Utah County had the year's highest job growth. After the workday ends, there are plentiful activity options: hiking, rafting, skiing, arts and museums, festivals, bouldering, and mountain biking – the list is literally endless. And that’s not even mentioning the nearby visitor sites such as Park City (home of the 2002 Winter Olympics), Utah Lake State Park, Timpanogos Cave State Park, and famous National Parks (Zion and Bryce Canyon).
