Neighborhood Spotlight: Riverwoods

The Shops at Riverwoods located near the mouth of Provo Canyon offers luxury shopping, spas, dining, and entertainment year-round. The outdoor mall is only a stone’s throw from the towering cliffs of Mt. Timpanogos which are a stunning backdrop for the famous Sundance ski resort.

Developed in 1998 as a shopping and dining destination that would cater to both Provo and Orem, Riverwoods is a popular destination for residents and visitors throughout the entire Utah Valley.

Jos. A. Banks and Beckett & Robb offer fine clothing for men, while Alysse’s Bridal and Soel boutiques showcase formal and stylish clothing for the ladies. And don’t forget styles for your home…Williams-Sonoma and Zions Mercantile Co. feature plenty of modern quality household and kitchen products.

If shopping isn’t your thing, you can come just for lunch or dinner. You can’t go wrong with the great food options here from national chain restaurants like Romano’s Macaroni Grill, La Jolla Groves, Tucanos Brazilian Grill, Bajio Mexican Grill and The Happy Sumo to tempting local cuisine from Malawi’s Pizza, Marley’s Gourmet Sliders or Kneaders Bakery & Café. No matter what you choose, you won’t be disappointed.

Trade in your snow board for a surfboard at the indoor Provo Beach Resort, which features a Flowrider wave simulator. Whoosh! There is something for everyone here! Try your hand at bowling, golf, Utah’s largest family ropes course, or the games in the arcade. Then stay for a movie at Wynnsong Cinemas, which includes 12 auditoriums, each with stadium, high-backed seats, digital sound and digital projection. Two of its auditoriums are also THX-certified.

You will love the beautiful modern design of the Riverwoods outdoor mall featuring brick, cast iron, and rustic woodwork. The “village streetscape” open-air environment is enhanced with lamp posts, cobblestones and a natural stream. During the warmer months, Riverwoods engages its water features and splash pads, providing a great way to cool off, as do grassy areas and shade features. During the cooler months, fire features and outdoor heating elements create a warm ambiance.
