Living in Logan
Beautiful Cache Valley
Located in the scenic Cache Valley approximately 90 miles north of Salt Lake City, Logan is surrounded by the steep Wellsville Mountains on the west and the Bear River Range to the east. Logan's city center is characterized by tree-lined streets and restored historic buildings with Center Street designated a National Historic District. Cache Valley prides itself on its low crime rate and safe, strong sense of community.
Logan has a pleasant summer climate, with daytime temperatures rarely climbing above the mid-80's. Humidity is low and evenings are cool. During the winter months, deep snow is common in the mountains. However, sunny skies and daytime temperatures in the mid-30's or higher keep the valley roads clear. Both Spring and Autumn offer crisp mornings and comfortable days.
As a top agricultural producer, Cache Valley is renowned for its cheese and ice cream. While the area's economy is dominated by Utah State University (USU), Logan also supports significant industry including electronics, fitness equipment, manufacturing, software development, publishing and biotechnology. Educational opportunities abound with three secondary schools, USU, and various vocational centers.
Cache Valley offers geological and scenic attractions, a rich pioneer legacy, four seasons of recreational opportunities, an eclectic festival and events calendar, and numerous dining and lodging choices. Hiking, horseback riding, mountain biking, fishing, camping, Nordic and alpine skiing, and acres of natural and groomed snowmobiling are in Cache Valley's Backyard; most types of outdoor recreation are located within a 20-minute drive of Logan.
