Tucked away in Utah’s beautiful northern country, Cache County is a burgeoning center for the arts.
Cache Valley is a showstopper of an art community. (No, it’s not New York City, but you also won’t spend your paycheck on a cab to the symphony.) Want to see a broadway show in a historic theater? Bring your jazz hands to Ellen Eccles Theater. Or maybe you’re more of a gallery stroller, severe haircut and a fancy beverage in hand? Logan’s got you, boo. Perhaps you were first-chair-something in your high school orchestra? You’d have to travel far to find a better performance of a Tchaikovsky violin concerto.
...All that and you want mountain scenery that (#sorrynotsorry, NYC) no metropolitan center can offer? It’s a lot to ask, but Cache Valley is your answer: world-class culture nestled betwixt dairy farms.
Take a scenic drive, stop in at a classic cafe for dinner, and enjoy the show.
