Orem is a city in Utah County, Utah, United States, in the north-central part of the state. It is adjacent to Provo, Lindon, and Vineyard and is about 45 miles (72 km) south of Salt Lake City. Orem is one of the principal cities of the Provo-Orem, Utah Metropolitan Statistical Area, which includes all of Utah and Juab counties. The population was 84,324 at the 2000 census, while the 2010 population was 88,328 making it the fifth-largest city in Utah. Utah Valley University is located in Orem. The Orem Owlz of the minor league baseball Pioneer League play their home games at the college. Orem uses the moniker "Family City USA". In fact, in 2010 Forbes rated it the 5th best place to raise a family. At one time the area was known as Sharon, a Biblical name for a mostly level strip of land running between mountains and the sea and the name of the birth town of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints founder Joseph Smith. Another former name was Provo Bench. In an apparent attempt to attract more investment to the town and provide an easy way for the large population of farmers with orchards to ship produce, in 1914 it was named after Walter C. Orem, President of the Salt Lake and Utah railroad in the early 1900's. Orem was incorporated in 1919. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Orem,_Utah
