Twin Falls (pop. 36,000) is perched on the edge of the Snake River Canyon on the high plains of southern Idaho. Unpopulated until about a hundred years ago, extensive irrigation of the Snake opened up this arid plateau to farming and habitation. Twin Falls has grown into one of Idaho's largest cities, with both a strong rural presence and the thousands of students at the College of Southern Idaho.
Despite the name, the most impressive falls nearby are actually the Shoshone Falls, an impressive waterfall taller than Niagra. The Snake River Canyon itself is an impressive sight, brought into the national spotlight in the 1970s by stuntman Evel Knievel, and the Sawtooth National Forest to the south features hiking, camping, and skiing. The scenery is enhanced by clean air and brilliant night skies undimmed by light pollution.
Twin Falls is located in south central Idaho along Interstate 84. For more information about Twin Falls, please select an area of interest from the buttons on the left.
