From its early agricultural roots, Cache County has grown into a thriving center for commerce, industry, tourism, and residential development. This panoramic valley is known for its natural beauty and premier resources, nestled between the alpine splendor of the Bear River Range to the east and the Wellsville Mountains to the south and west. The combination of scenic wonder, careful planning, and an eye for progress have combined to transform Cache County into one of the nation’s top “micrometropolitan” areas.

The influence of a leading research institution of higher education, Utah State University, has no doubt been part of the catalyst for growth in business and industry. The presence of USU ensures a steady supply of intellectual brilliance and inventive talent within the region. Among the enterprises that are flourishing in the county are food processors, an eclectic array of light industries, and a number of high-tech enterprises.

Services

Throughout Cache County, property taxes are modest and the quality of life is high. Outstanding educational resources combine with a modern infrastructure, extensive communications networks, and efficient transportation. The emphasis on educational excellence is evident everywhere in Cache County, from favorable test scores to the special programs and activities designed to develop tomorrow’s leaders. Several of the high schools in the region have garnered national recognition for excellence. The possibilities for higher education range from nationally acclaimed doctoral programs and advanced degrees at USU to career programs and vocational training at the Bridgerland Applied Technology Center.

Respected medical professionals combine with family clinics, emergency care centers, and a full-service hospital to ensure state-of-the-art healthcare. In fact, the many specialties available at Logan Regional Hospital attract patients from northern Utah, southeastern Idaho, and western Wyoming.

Lifestyle

In addition to the positive impact it plays in the regional economy and educational scene, USU enhances cultural life with a performing arts series that showcases regional, national and international talent. The renovated Ellen Eccles Theatre and Bullen Center provide such outstanding performance spaces that they draw audiences from across the Cache Valley as well as Ogden, Salt Lake City, and even surrounding states. Opera, ballet, musical concerts, and live-stage theatrical productions are just a few of the cultural attractions. For homespun entertainment, residents and visitors enjoy a variety of festivals and celebrations.

Those who have an interest in sports and outdoor activities will find every imaginable environment, from miles of scenic hiking trails in the Wellsville Mountains to the rock-climbing paradise of Logan Canyon. Ideal settings are available for camping, backpacking, off-roading, bicycling, bird watching, canoeing, kayaking, boating, waterskiing, sailboarding, and swimming. Anglers can look forward to pulling out trout and whitefish from the crystal waters, while hunters find plentiful wildlife in such vast expanses as the Wasatch-Cache National Forest.

Downhill skiing is available at Beaver Mountain Ski Resort, although snowmobiling, sledding and cross-country ski areas are plentiful. More than 200 miles of groomed trails connect Utah and Idaho in one of the first interstate snowmobile trail complexes. Bear Lake offers idyllic conditions for water sports. Golf courses, collegiate sports, rodeos, and national competitive events keep the calendar filled with red-letter days.

From the county seat of Logan to the small but growing developments that dot the region, the selection of attractive and affordable housing combines with a comparatively low cost of living for an unparalleled quality of life. With its strong university support, exceptional recreational opportunities, and sheer natural beauty, Cache County is truly one of Utah’s great treasures.
