With Mount Timpanogos to the east and Utah Lake to the west, Provo and the adjacent city of Orem make up one of the prettiest communities in the West. With a combined population of 200,000, this two-city community is also one of the fastest-growing. Provo's historic downtown includes many small shops and family restaurants; in the newer sections you'll find malls, factory outlet stores, a variety of eateries, and the headquarters for several large corporations. The presence of Brigham Young University and the LDS Missionary Training Center imbue the community with a wholesome quality.
