Why do we love Provo so much?

Just curious why we all love to visit Provo, and if it's all the reasons.

For me, it is the feeling that have right now as I gaze onto the spectacular turquoise that is The Bay.

I think for me it was finding a beautiful Island that was not full of hawkers and annoying scam artists....The clean quiet beaches and personally I love the locals...Have visited 10 times and heading back again in the spring.. and of course the water!!

Like everyone, we love the beautiful turquoise water. In addition love that there are no vendors on the beach to bother you . Food is awesome and I love all the different resort options - all different price points yet you can't really go wrong with whatever resort you choose. My husband loves the Provo Golf Course and how easy it is to drive in TCI.

Back for our 2nd trip the week of Thanksgiving :)

We love the quick flight.

The local people.

Diversity in hotel accommodations and restaurants.

Safety.

The most beautiful beach we have ever seen.

Being familiar with the roads and resorts.

Actually there is nothing that we do not like.

Hard to sum up everything but someone recently used the word spiritual in their description of their trip. I think that's the best word for me to describe how I feel when I'm there. When I'm walking on Grace Bay, headphones on, music blasting, singing in my head, looking out at the ocean, no matter what else is going on in my world, I'm at total peace. I think it's why I crave our time down there. And we've had a handful of wonderful family vacations there, but now that it's just me and hubby, it's our time, and we get the chance to rest, relax and recharge - and act like five-year olds on the beach if that's what we want to do. If you see a woman sitting on her butt in the sand at the water's edge, letting the waves roll up to her feet, drawing in the sand, that's me.

I love the lack of 28 story buildings, 22 story conference centers, and mega retail stores..

And the food

I love the beautiful water and the uncrowded beaches. Muylinda, you said it "rest,relax and recharge". It tops my list of the most relaxing vacations I have ever had. I just feel at home there!
