Big and Small of it

Community Information

One of the jewels on the fertile Snake River Plain, Idaho Falls is becoming one of the best kept secrets in both destination and business travel. Ranked among the Top 10 “Hottest Small Cities” by Inc. Magazine, Idaho Falls is as big as you want it to be.

Big enough to host major conventions, live orchestra and 5-star cuisine. Small enough to offer an easy pace, clean air and riverside walks.

Big enough to deliver professional baseball, a much-ballyhooed 7-acre zoo and the Museum of Idaho. Small enough to offer boat trips, ski hills and cozy nights before a stone fireplace.

Yeah, you could say we’re pretty proud to be one of this country’s “Hottest Small Cities.” Now come on out to the river and lets turn up the heat.
