South of the Salt Lake Valley, Utah Valley lies between the southern part of the Wasatch Front and a beautiful lake called Utah Lake. With two of the State’s largest universities (Brigham Young University and Utah Valley University), Provo and Orem are heavily populated with students and young families, which helps keep rent rates fairly low.

- Bountiful – population: 44,477, average rent: $703
