  1. Coming from someone who lives in Utah.. Ogden is a crap hole. And Provo is only good if you’re LDS. If you’re not, you won’t feel accepted in most of Utah. I have lived in 5 cities in Utah from st George to salt lake county. My brother lives and teaches in Ogden and said its by far one of the worst cities
