Idaho’s Snake River is known for its pristine conditions and rapidly flowing current. It’s a gorgeous river bed that cuts through the bottom of Idaho and lazes around our beloved Idaho Falls — a place we’re honored to call home.
Not to be confused with Twin Falls, Idaho, which is 160 miles south and features the “Niagara of the North,” Idaho Falls’ rapids and waterfalls flow at a much simpler, clamer pace. It’s the perfect place to relax and explore, and after you take a look at all Idaho Falls has to offer, we like to think you will agree!
Enjoy Dining Variety
There’s no settling in Idaho Falls! Our eateries feature world-class dining, family comfort food, international tours, and much more. You can find a whole list of options online at VisitIdahoFalls.com/Dine.
Of course, we have a few favorites worth calling out! Copper Rill Restaurant is a great place for date night, as is Smokin Fins, if you’re looking for a spin on a classic. If pizza is more your flare, check out MacKenzie River Pizza, Lucy’s Pizzeria, or Papa Kelsey’s Pizza and Subs. And we can’t forget about the breweries! Be sure to visit Idaho Brewing Company and Snow Eagle Brewing and Grill.
Spend an Afternoon Learning
Idaho has a lot of history in its mountains and valleys, and there are a few museums right within Idaho Falls dedicated to preserving it and expanding the creativity and knowledge of its citizens.
To learn more about Idaho — and other parts of the globe — but sure to visit the Museum of Idaho. This museum brings national and international exhibits to Idaho, while also preserving and featuring the history and important structures of Idaho. As they say in their motto: “Bringing the world to Idaho, and Idaho to the world.” Check out their website to see what cool exhibit they are hosting this month!
If you have creative kids, the ARTitorium is the place to be! At ARTitorium, kids can learn, play, create, be loud, and expel all their energy. You can choose from classes or tour the exhibits, all while watching your children’s creativity grow before your very eyes.
More educational fun can also be had at The Art Museum of Eastern Idaho, the Idaho Falls Zoo at Tautphaus Park, and the Willard Arts Center!
Get Outside and Explore
Nothing beats the natural beauty of Idaho Falls. Explore it by starting at Ryder Park. The park features two fishing ponds, both of which are well-stocked and maintained, making them accessible to all abilities and perfect for children just learning how to fish. Who knows? Your little one just might catch their first fish here!
