They are referred to as Summer Citizens and the hundreds of retired people who come to Cache Valley each summer have, for the most part, settled in. Julie Hollist from the Cache Valley Visitor’s Bureau says there are a lot of new people this year. On KVNU’s Crosstalk show, Hollist said the visitors don’t just come from Arizona and a few from Nevada and California but they also come from such places as Texas and Georgia and Williamsburg, Virginia. Asked what they like to do while the Summer Citizens are here, Hollist said, “everything.” “Whether it’s the outdoors,” Hollist said, “or whether it’s the opera performances and musical theater performances, if it’s the concerts at the tabernacle, new restaurants, what to do and see in the whole region, they want to do it while they are here. So it’s really fun to be with them.” Hollist says this group, along with other tourists, are also interested in the Visitors Bureau-sponsored speaker series and in taking classes at Utah State University.
