Welcome to Provo
The third-largest city in Utah, Provo is a conservative Mormon town. (It's also known as 'Happy Valley,' as more antidepressants are prescribed here than in any other part of Utah.) Remember Donny & Marie Osmond, the saccharine 1970s sibling singing sensation? This is their hometown. Unless you're a big fan, the most compelling reason to visit is to see Brigham Young University on a day trip from Salt Lake City, 45 miles north. University Ave, Provo's main thoroughfare, intersects Center St in the small old downtown core. Note that the whole place pretty much shuts down on Sunday.
