My sister has lived in Provo, and is currently in Salt Lake City if you want to PM with any specific questions. It was funny since at the time she was going to school at BYU I was in Colorado Springs, and she'd always tell me what the weather would be like a day or two in advance. The two cities are very similar, except in Colorado Springs everything was based on a military population, and in Provos it's a Mormon population.
One thing I'll tell you that I learned from visiting is there is almost zero nightlife and most everything is closed on Sunday. Lots of ballroom dance places/clubs and more than its fair share of drive-in theaters. And make sure you mention the grid block system with the N,W,S,E directions.
In general when I'm doing research, I like to check out the Tourist attractions in the area.
