Provo named happiest city by SELF magazine

Forget suitcases, airplane tickets, long lines and taxi cabs. This year’s hottest vacation destination may be Provo’s own Center Street or on the banks of Provo River.

SELF Magazine, a women’s wellness magazine, recently named Provo-Orem the nation’s happiest city in its “Most Blissful Cities to Visit” feature.
