Provo is the Center of Leisure & Hospitality

Several million people come to Provo every year to enjoy its many recreational opportunities. Whether it’s to ski at Sundance, watch a performance at the Covey Center, go to a BYU football game, or attend an event at the Utah County Convention Center, our city offers a myriad of experiences. As a center for leisure and hospitality, Provo is the ‘base camp’ where adventures begin and end. Watch our video to see why people are drawn to Provo and return time and time again.
