Provo Travel Guide
Welcome to Provo!
Provo, situated roughly 50 mi (80 km) south of Salt Lake City, is widely recognized as the home of Brigham Young University, the largest private university in Utah. A number of outdoor activities are popular in the area, including fly fishing on the Provo River and skiing at Sundance Resort. In addition to recreation, Provo's Museum of Art offers a collection of local, European and 19th-century American paintings, and the city's Earth Science Museum boasts one of the world's finest collections of Jurassic dinosaur fossils. Another interesting historical attraction in Provo is the Museum of Peoples and Cultures, which houses archaeological and ethnographic collections from around the world, including Mayan pottery and ancient Mexican masks. Visitors lucky enough to be in Provo on July 4th have the opportunity to experience one of the biggest Independence Day celebrations in the state. Families and children can explore Seven Peaks, a park with a wave pool, speed slides, free fall and other entertaining activities.
Crandall Historical Printing Museum showcases replicas of famous print shops and printing presses, including a model of the world's oldest printing house.
