Top 5 Restaurants in Provo Utah That You Must Try



When you think of Provo or Orem, Utah, the first couple of things that probably come to mind are Brigham Young University or Utah Valley University. Both are well known for their sports programs and home to thousands of students. The last thing that would probably come to mind are great places to eat at. College towns are often full of fast food and traditional chain restaurants, not great “hole-in-the-wall” places. Despite the college town atmosphere, there are some unique  and delicious places to eat.

6 Disc Golf Courses Near Rexburg

After five months of snow storms and below freezing weather, temperatures in the mid 50’s and 60’s are starting to re-enter Rexburg. With warmer weather, there are numberless ways to enjoy the wonderful outdoors this summer. However, with so many options available, how does a person choose what to do? If you feel this way, Disc Golf is a fantastic option.

Disc Golf is played much like traditional golf. Instead of using clubs and a ball, players use discs (Frisbees). Players then throw the discs from the tees towards the course holes, which is basically an elevated metal basket.

There are two local Disc Golf courses and at least five other courses within 45 miles of Rexburg. Below is a list of courses by location, address, and the number of holes. These aren’t all of the courses available but a great start.
