Utah County has been on our bucket list for years! We alway pass by but we have never made it a destination to stay and explore. I'm SO glad we finally made it down to explore.

First off, we have to say that Provo exceeded all expectations. The small town charm, creativity, and endless number of places to eat and things to do, it would take weeks to fit it all in.

We have compiled a list with the BEST OF THE BEST that Utah County has to offer. Now, remember, we only stayed for a weekend, and you can only do so much and eat so much in 3 days, so we will definitely be back so we can add more to this list.

We loved staying downtown at the Marriott because everything is within walking distance. The hotel was right at the heart of downtown. We also loved swimming at night in the outside pool and hearing the sounds of the city around us.
