Information about Idaho Falls

Idaho Falls, Idaho, is one of the most beautiful small cities in the U.S. Idaho Falls is close to the Nation's most breathtaking national parks, including Yellowstone (120 miles north of Idaho Falls), Teton (100 miles east of Idaho Falls), and Craters of the Moon (80 miles west of Idaho Falls).

There is plentiful skiing, snowmobiling, hiking, camping, backpacking, whitewater rafting, golf, tennis, fishing and other outdoor recreational activities for your enjoyment. Kelly Canyon ski area is only 20 minutes from downtown Idaho Falls, and Grand Targhee and Teton Village are only 1-1/2 hours away. The famous South Fork and Henry's Fork of the Snake River deliver some of the best trout fishing in the world, and they are within a two hour drive of Idaho Falls as well.
