Provo Makes Kiplinger's List of Great Places to Live, Work and Play

Provo City is on Kiplinger's Personal Finance magazine's new list of "10 Great Places to Live, Work and Play" this year.

The Provo Daily Herald has this article about the listing. Below are excerpts.

The magazine calls Provo a "pristine software mecca" -- a locale whose mountain views are as charming as its resume of high-tech employers is impressive. The article... says employers like Novell, Micron Technology and Omniture make Provo the country's second-largest software hub.

"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."

Provo has been a recurring favorite on several of Kiplinger's lists over the past few years. In June 2006, the magazine included the city on its "50 Smart Places to Live" list. And in June 2007, Provo showed up in Kiplinger's "Best Cities for Married with Children" rankings.
