Although Utah Valley is a new experience for many visitors, the area has a rich, deep and diverse history. Originally home to Native Americans, Utah Valley has also been the destination of Spanish explorers, mountain men and trappers, and pioneers emigrating to the West. Most of Utah's communities, and many of its historical and cultural attractions, are at least 150 years old and have continued to preserve and honor the past as they look to the future.
Utah Valley is rich in cultural experiences and the arts. It is home to two major universities, as well as to gifted performers and teachers in art, music, theatre and dance. The residents of Utah Valley also contribute to this experience by bringing a variety of cultural backgrounds from around the world. For example, at Brigham Young University, the area's largest university, six percent of the student body is from outside the United States, representing more than 120 countries. More than three-fourths of the students speak a language other than their native tongue.
