BYU is a travel destination in itself, with multiple visitable museums--obvious ones include the art museum, small enough to visit easily, with many excellent features; the observatory; the Bean museum--again small enough for children not to get too tired (lots of animals, but beware if your youngsters are sensitive--most are arranged in predators-attacking-prey and are very graphic); but don't forget...

A visit to this lovely campus of the LDS university was very enjoyable. We enjoyed the bookstore, eating with choices of many cuisines and the clean and friendly campus in general.

BYU boasts, in addition to numerous excellent athletic teams, several top class museums; the Bean Life Science Museum (recently renovated), the Museum of Peoples and Cultures, the Museum of Paleontology, the Museum of Art, and the Planetarium are all well worth the visit. Most are geared to children with hands-on exhibits. There is also a large family history center as... More

There was nothing to dislike. There was an incredible amount of traffic and the hotel was full that visit, yet the hotel and staff were up to treating each request from each guest as though they were the only guest there. Met several people we knew from different States as well.

Check the website for happenings at the fine arts center, museum, family history library and more... Surprisingly you could spend a tourist day here that has nothing to do with being in school!

If you love to visit gardens and arboretuns you must visit the Brigham Young University one, in Provo (Utah). It is a very well projected arboretum in the slope of the hill that leads to the university buildings. You could see tematic gardens focused on local plants althought most of the trees are not Utah's native and some of them... More

BYU is a magical place to us. We take our children every year to feel the "spirit of The Y". We always go to the creamery and get ice-cream, we try to catch a b-ball game each year, and we usually make at least one trip to the BYU Bookstore! My kids notice things that you should come and experience... More

If you are a college football fan then LES is one of the best venues I have ever been to. Not a ton of tail gating when compared to a few of the top programs in the nation, but a passionate fan base.
