Moving to Provo

Wondering if moving to Provo, UT is right for you? This popular city just south of Salt Lake City, off the coast of Utah Lake, is a fantastic destination for families and young professionals alike. With an affordable cost of living, a young atmosphere and stunning surroundings, Provo has plenty to offer.

Wondering who are the best movers in Provo? At Wasatch Moving, we have the knowledge and experience to make your move to or from Provo worry-free. Our customers have given us numerous 5-star reviews because we’re dedicated to the highest quality of work, every time.

What’s life like in Provo, UT? Well, the city is home to approximately 116,000 people. A college town characterized by nearby Brigham Young University, the median age in Provo is just 23.7, and residents aged 18-24 make up more than a third of the population. Working folks in the city bring home a median household income of $44,312 per year, and the median income here has followed an upward trend over the last several years.

Living in Provo is on par with the average for both the state and the country. The average home in Provo costs about $215,000, and renters can expect to pay around $765 per month for their apartment or condo. One aspect of living here that is significantly less expensive than other parts of the US is utility payments, likely due to Utah’s wonderful weather.

Like much of Utah, religion plays an important role in Provo. More than 95% of Provo residents are religious, and the overwhelming majority of those are part of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (AKA the Mormon Church). Since Utah is the epicenter of the Mormon faith, this isn’t surprising, but it’s still important to consider before moving to the area. While there are some Catholic and Protestant followers in Provo, there are very few residents who follow an Eastern faith, and 0% of the population identifies as Jewish.

Wondering what are the best things to do in Provo? As the city borders Lake Utah, one of the best ways to spend a day off here is by heading to the Utah Lake State Park! In addition to swimming and boating opportunities, you can also fish for several fresh water species in Lake Utah, including walleye and bass! For more outdoor adventures, take a hike into the Wasatch Mountains to the West of the city, which offer miles upon miles of hiking trails with some of the most beautiful lookouts in the country.
