Readers of Outside Magazine had the opportunity to cast their vote in Outside's 2014 Best Towns Competition, and one of Utah's favorite towns, Provo, emerged as a finalist.

According to Outside, the key factors in determining a winning town were things like "healthy eating options," "access to outdoor adventure," "unemployment rates" and livability.
