Idaho FallsUnited States of America

With the conveniences of a city but relaxing feel of a country town, this is the perfect base to explore the wonders of Yellowstone and Grand Teton national parks.

Situated within the picturesque Rocky Mountains, Idaho Falls is the ideal place to base your adventure into the rugged mountains of Grand Teton National Park and Yellowstone National Park.

Named after the cascading falls in the Snake River greenbelt, Idaho Falls is surrounded by rolling plains, rugged mountains and the winding river. You’ll find an abundance of outdoor activities. Hike, fish, hunt or camp in the national parks. Boat on the Ririe or Palisades reservoirs. Hang glide, skydive, or hot air balloon from King Mountain, or kayak on the Upper Snake River. Head to the Snake River BMX track; watch racing or bring a bike to be fitted to participate. Take the family to Tautphaus Park Funland Amusement Park. During the winter, ice skate at Tautphaus Park ice rink or take your snowmobile to the Caribou Range.

After these rigorous outdoor adventures, unwind back in Idaho Falls township. Take a boat ride on the Snake River, stroll along the trails of the greenbelt or relax in one of the many parks. Play a game of golf on a championship course, or enjoy watching animal antics at Tautphaus Park Zoo.

This beautiful town is rich in history. Discover the city’s roots on a Historic Building Walking Tour or at the Museum of Idaho. Browse local arts and crafts at the Willard Art Center, and in the evening, attend a show at the Colonial Theater or the symphony at the Civic Auditorium. With festivals and events happening year-round, you can see a music concert, theater performance or cultural event whenever you visit.

Located in Bonneville County, Idaho, Idaho Falls is a two-hour drive from the ski resorts of Grand Targhee and Sun Valley. While the city can be negotiated on foot, there is limited local public transportation. Renting a car is recommended to be able to enjoy the picturesque countryside at your leisure.

This was my 50th IF High School Reunion. It included golf at Pinecrest Golf Course, which is gorgeous and very playable, a Historical Walking Tour of Downtown, and events at the The Waterfront and Bees Knees Bistro, both excellent food.
