Logan, Utah is an eclectic town of 48,000 people and the county seat of Cache County, Utah. Founded in 1859, Logan was established by the local settlers because of a directive from the Mormon leader Brigham Young, who gave instructions to construct a fort along the Logan River. Nearly 150 years later, Logan is now a college town and home to Utah State University and its 30,000 students.
In 2005 and 2007, the city was named by Morgan Quitno Press as the safest city in America. In 2012, Livability.com said Logan was the third best college town. This honor recognized the low cost of living and the abundant entertainment options available in the city. One example of Logan’s affordability can be seen in the city’s free public transportation system provided by the Cache Valley Transit District.
