Perhaps no place exemplifies Utah’s tourism motto of “Life Elevated” as much as its Cache Valley located in the northern part of the state. At the heart of this mountain-bordered valley and its 19 cities and towns is Logan. And life in Logan is elevated by its art scene, from live theaters to arts and crafts shops and studios. Visit Eccles Theater, a community mainstay, to watch live plays and other performances, or take your group to Utah Festival Opera & Musical Theatre—a premier destination for art lovers around Utah and across the country.

See the sites of downtown Logan with the self- guided Historic Downtown Walking Tour, and be sure to sample some of the local cuisine or visit local art galleries. For bookworms and guitar players, stop in at The Book Table, which sells not only books but also has a floor devoted solely to guitars and another one to puzzles.


Locals might argue Logan’s most popular eatery is Angie’s restaurant, with menu offerings that span the gamut of breakfast, lunch, and dinner. There also is a variety of desserts, including oversize cinnamon rolls and an extravagant serving of ice cream, called The Kitchen Sink, best to partake with a group. The Beehive Pub & Grill will fill the hankering for a hamburger, fish tacos, or crunchy fish and chips, among other tasty meal options and drinks. Utah State University—home of the Aggies—is located in Logan, where there is a popular creamery: Aggie Ice Cream and True Blue Cheese. Not to be missed also is the Aggie Chocolate Factory.


Mountain canyons, lakes, and reservoirs are only minutes away along the Logan Canyon Scenic Byway. Beaver Mountain Ski Resort, where visitors can experience Utah’s popular winter powder, is a winter tradition for many.
