I just read an article about Kiplinger's "Great Places to Live, Work, and Play" with Provo on the Top 10 list.
"It's hard to argue down a city with so many great things going for it," said Kiplinger's Senior Editor Bob Frick. "I would kind of put it in that category of places that people don't naturally think about as being very intellectual and vibrant, but they are. In addition to that, you have the whole natural beauty, clean living kind of thing...It's kind of always on our radar," Frick said. "We recognize it for being pristine and high tech."
Fun to read. :)
