Idaho Falls Things to Do

  • Sportsman Park & Friendship Garden

    Right in the middle of downtown, just parallel to the Broadway Street bridge is Sportsman Park. They have a couple picnic benches and pavilions that can be rented for events, but walking through the park is always free. Friendship Garden is also here, celebrating the connection to the city's Japanese sister city, Tokai-Mura. The garden is not...

  • Idaho Falls

    The Town's namesake are a set of falls on the Snake River, right next to the downtown area. Although not very large these are pretty falls and worth a peek while in town.

  • Museum of Idaho

    Small but decent museum of natural and cultural history of the state of Idaho. Besides Idaho history, the museum has a great collection of dinosaur and other fossil remains collected in the area. This is the top attraction in town.

  • Stop in the Green Belt

    The Green Belt is a great walking loop along and over the Snake River. You can stop along the side of the river and relax, while looking over to the Idaho Falls. There are also restaurants to satisfy your hunger that are on the River Parkway and on neighboring streets. All in all, this was a pit stop on the way to Salt Lake City, Utah, from Jackson...

  • Simple Town

    Idaho Falls is a pretty simple town. Dont go there expecting a 24 hr nightlife and casinos. The I.F. Temple is a mormon center. Yeah true the majority of I.F. is mormon they have their moments but aint all bad. Even though the temple is a religous icon to a not so popular religon it is an empressive building, even in mormon standards it is an...

  • Snakebite Restaurant

    We had a bit of an appetite when we arrived in town and thankfully lunch hours were just having restaurants open their doors. With only a little searching, we found Snakebite. It is a friendly restaurant, with a few tables on the sidewalk if the weather is cooperative. The brick walls have some local art hanging on them and the staff are...

  • Great Mexican

    Jalisco's has some great food and some unique offerings instead of the standard menu of some Mexican Restaurants. A nice find for such a small out of the way town as Idaho falls. I recommend this place highly. Jalisco Shrimp

Idaho Falls Transportation

  • rental cars at Idaho Falls Regional...

    by drpaule Updated Mar 9, 2008

    The Idaho Falls regional airport is quite nice, and the fare I got was good. Far better than flying into Salt Lake City, then driving up. It was worth the few dollars more to skip the 5 hour bus ride from Salt Lake.

    The airport is close to the intersection of I-15 and 20. In fact, if you're coming south on 20, say, from Rexburg, and *don't* turn onto I-15, you go right into the airport.

    Several rental cars companies are in the airport. The rental desks are in the main terminal hall, which isn't too unusual, but the rental cars are just out the door. They're probably closer than public parking area. The rental area doesn't have the usual check-out or check-in kiosks or folks.

    When returning a rental car, park anywhere in the company's section, write the mileage (and gas) on your rental agreement, then go to the rental desk in the terminal. Yes, I know, its on the rental agreement. But I was so used to an employee checking in the car (and checking the mileage), I didn't bother reading it.

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Visit the falls. They are beautiful and there is a great park surrounding them as well as a walk-around. Also at the falls is the Vietnam memorial, and other memorials. Very important to some of us.

    Fondest memory: Getting married in the temple on the banks of the Snake river, just by the falls is my best and most precious memory of Idaho Falls.
