Southern Idaho

Living in Southern Idaho means you’re centrally located to so many different places.

You’re only a few hours from Salt Lake City and Boise, only a few hours from Sun Valley and Jackson Hole, close to both the Grand Tetons and Yellowstone. It’s easy to plan a weekend away and go exploring.

Closer to home are hot springs, the river, local monuments – especially from the Oregon Trail, and so many great hiking and snow shoeing opportunities.

Some of my favorites are:

  • Lava Hot Springs, a geothermal hot springs range from 102˚ to 112˚. open year round.
  • Craters of the Moon National Monument & Preserve, a volcanic wonderland that is fun to explore.
  • Massacre Rocks State Park is rich in history and full of year-round recreation.
  • Grand Teton National Park
  • Idaho Museum of Natural History is home to collections in Anthropology, Earth Sciences, and Life Sciences.
  • Museum of Clean – still on my list to go to!
  • Idaho Potato Museum – still on my list to go to!
