Idaho Falls Tourism Photos and Images

Located in the heart of eastern Idaho and nestled among the Rocky Mountains beneath the shadow of the Grand Tetons, Idaho Falls offers something for everyone and is a place worth exploring. Are you up for a sensory overload? Idaho Falls has abundant opportunities and local attractions for you to touch, taste, feel, smell and hear. And we're just getting started.

Surrounded by natural beauty, from the lava fields of Craters of the Moon to the jagged peaks of the Grand Tetons, "The Falls" has everything you'd expect from a major city, including baseball, horse racing, a symphony orchestra and live theater. Idaho Falls has gained a national reputation as a beautiful and family-friendly spot to live or visit.

With convenient access to many popular attractions, not the least of which is Yellowstone National Park, Idaho Falls sits in beautiful country. Rafting and fishing on the Snake River are both great pastimes. Several national forests, mountain ranges, and a handful of wildlife refuges and national parks are all within a short drive. An outdoors lover could spend months exploring this pristine countryside.

Activities

Sink your hooks into world-class fishing holes, ballpark hotdogs, or any of four championship-calibur golf courses. Looking for more? Drive alongside wolves and bears in Yellowstone National Park or Grand Teton National Park, or discover a new world at the Craters of the Moon National Monument. Still not satisfied? Idaho Falls is moments away from most activities.

Rex Named Sue, Prehistoric Worlds: Backyard Discoveries, The world of Lewis and Clark and Space Journey.

Sports/Recreation - Kick back with some peanuts and Cracker Jacks at historic McDermott Field, home of minor league baseball's Idaho Falls Chukars.

Explore exhibits like the Primate Discovery Center and Asian Adventure. Whatever your interest, you are sure to have a wild time at the "best little zoo in the west."

Surrounding Areas - Whether you favor alpine slopes, cross country tracks, or the snowboarder's halfpipe, wintertime is snow time above the Snake River Plain.
