About Utah Lake elsewhere
"You may be able to find speakers of the major European and Asian languages in Salt Lake City and Provo, owing largely to the universities there (the University of Utah and Brigham Young University, respectively)."
"Provo is perhaps the most "Mormon" town in Utah; as such, nightlife is decidedly low key, with little of the debauchery one experiences to the north in Salt Lake City."
"From 1857 to 1858, the Buchanan administration sought to quell what it perceived to be a rebellion in Utah Territory while the Mormons, fearful that the large federal army dispatched to the region had been sent to annihilate them, blocked the army's entrance into the Salt Lake Valley."
"UTA operates its bus sytem throughout much of Provo and Orem, but service in the rest of Utah County is sparse when compared to Salt Lake County."
"The Ute Indian tribe reigned here until Mormon leader Brigham Young sent 30 families south from Salt Lake City in March 1849 to colonize the area."
"Prominent settlements in Utah included St. George, Logan, and Manti (where settlers raised the three first temples in Utah, each built many years before the larger and better known temple built in Salt Lake City was completed in 1892), as well as Parowan, Ceder City, Bluff, Moab, Vernal, Fillmore (which served as the territorial capital between 1850 and 1856), Nephi, Spanish Fork, Springville, Provo Bench (now Orem), Pleasant Grove, American Fork, Lehi, Sandy, Murray, Jordan, Centerville, Farmington, Huntsville, Kaysville, Grantsville, Tooele, Roy, Brigham City, and many other smaller towns and settlements."
"From Salt Lake City Exit (Airport) in Provo off I-15 S Travel West on Center St to the end (2.6 mi)."
"These first European-Americans thought of the area to be their Zion ,or Holy Land, and thus named the river flowing west of their first settlement, Salt Lake City ,the Western Jordan ,a nod to the River Jordan in Palestine."
"Continue up the trail to the summit of Sunset Peak for breathtaking views of the Heber Valley, Park City, Mt. Timpanogos, Big and Little Cottonwood Canyons, and even a part of the Salt Lake Valley."

Good restaurants are scarce in Utah Valley, but Pizzeria Seven Twelve is a winner. Located at 320 South State Street, this restaurant serves the best pizza I have ever eaten. Sorry, New York.
By the way, the "712" is a reference to the temperature of the brick oven, imported from Italy. The server told me on the sly that the oven actually cooks at 780 degrees, but the owners liked the sound of "Seven Twelve." I am in favor of whatever it takes to get pizza that good.
