Living in Cache Valley

Cache (pronounced “cash”) Valley, like its name suggests, is somewhat hidden. To those who know about it, however, Cache Valley is easily one of Northern Utah’s gems. Cache Valley’s basin, framed by majestic mountain ranges on almost all sides, is a rugged western landscape that remains very similar to the time it was first discovered.

While it started primarily as an agricultural community, the presence of Utah State University has transformed Cache Valley into an intellectual haven. The university generates top-tier research, and, in fact, is known as a top research university. Its unique programs, such as veterinary science, make USU distinct from other universities in Utah, and those programs draw students from all over the United States, as well as the world.

Beyond the university, Cache Valley has also become a desirable location due to its central location. Cache Valley is located within a day’s drive of eight major western cities, including Salt Lake City, Utah; Denver, Colorado; Jackson Hole, Wyoming; Las Vegas, Nevada; and Portland, Oregon. It is also within easy driving distance to multiple national parks, including Yellowstone and Zion National Park. As a result, Cache Valley’s central location provides a gateway to world-class sightseeing and adventure.
