Hailed as one of the safest metropolitan areas in the country, Logan, UT, is a great scenic place to visit or make a home. Its 17.94 square miles lie adjacent to the beautiful Bear River Mountains. The area is rich in geological history, from glacially made river deltas to the Logan Canyon. The weather in Logan includes warm summers and snowy winters, allowing for year-round activities in the city and its nearby locales.
The city is home to Utah State University, the last of several educational institutions initially run by the Mormon Church. Logan’s commitment to education is apparent in its high graduation rate of over 90 percent (for high school), and the presence of thriving universities and businesses contribute to a good job rate. Currently, 71 percent of Logan’s population is in the civilian labor force, a figure higher than the national average.
Logan, which has a population of about 49,000, is also home to a vibrant cultural experience in addition to its proximity to great outdoor fun. Artsy types might be interested in the Summerfest Arts Faire, and more musically inclined people can look forward to shows at the Utah Festival Opera and the Ellen Eccles Theatre. Logan’s art galleries, museums and public events have earned it a place among the “Most Uniquely American Cities and Towns,” according to Newsmax Magazine.
Whether you’re just passing through, on vacation, or hoping to settle down in Northern Utah, Logan has something to offer everyone!
