They have really updated the walking path so it is now wider than it used to be. Very nice for walking, jogging, or riding bikes. It's an easy walk takes about 45-60 min. to walk all the way around. Can take longer if you walk toward snake river landing or towards freeman park.

I found Tautphaus Park without much trouble, but finding the zoo inside the park was quite a challenge. I could not find a sign for the zoo until I asked several people about it. Then I found a small sign attached to a fence. It was in the 40s when I went, so many of the animals were not on exhibit. There was still a good variety of large animals (a snow leopard and a tiger for a couple of examples) and several others. The parking is adequate and free and the admission was only one dollar. If you are in the neighborhood, it is worth a stop if you like zoos. The employees I encountered during my walk around the grounds were very friendly and I had nice chats with some of them, enhancing the visit.

Considering the size of Idaho Falls, this is a very good museum. It has different exhibits throughout the year and special events. The local history portions are also well done and interesting.

Without a doubt this is one of the best things to do in Idaho Falls. The sights and sounds are wonderful. There are benches everywhere along the river that have been crafted by artists in many different and unique designs. The waterfalls, the bridges, the artwork and the wildlife are a must-see. It is an easy walk and a great way to keep healthy mentally and physically. Enjoy!

Idaho Falls has cleaned up a downtown area with the help of many businesses and community organizations to make a tranquil and beautiful park right by the falls and main bridge. Spent time wandering around the garden and footpaths admiring the landscaping and wedding venue with the sound of running water everywhere! Great result and enjoyable space!

This was a GREA lava site to view. There a two VERY easy walks. One about 1/4 mile and one 3/4 mile. We walked the 3/4 mile in about 35-40 minutes. It is WELL maintained, VERY easy to walk and VERY interesting. We were traveling for about 7 hours, and this a nice place to stretch you legs and walk a little. Your at a rest stop anyway, so take the time. You will not be disappointed.

The couple who own and run the museum, Jim & Nida, are just as interesting as their collections. They have been collecting since the were children and they are very knowledgeable about "collectibles" and they have a plethora of interesting stories to share. The Museum itself is a combination of their private collections and has grown as visitors to the museum and other collectors have donated their collections to Collectors Corner. A leisurely browse through the museum brings the hope of memories of days gone by flickering to life. I myself came across a doll house, the like if which I owned as a child. Nida has purchased it at a church bazaar and then lovingly and painstakingly amassed the 62 individual pieces needed to restore the doll house to it original state. I was impressed. The treasure I've taken away with me from my visit to the museum are restored fresh memories instead of the dim undefinable ones if that doll house I had when I went in. Thank you Jim and Nida for sharing your passion of collecting with us.

This waterfall statue transforms a busy roundabout in a commercial area of Idaho Falls into an astounding artistic statement, a grand and appropriate tribute to Idaho's many natural wonders. Drive around it, of course, but then stop and take time to admire the painstaking composition, startling in its verisimilitude; you can almost "hear" the eagles going about their important business. Kudos to the community that invested in this brilliant piece of public art, worthy in every detail of the storied river that flows nearby, and the city it gives life to.

Staff has always been friendly and helpful here. It's great to attend an outdoor game with fresh air thanks to the no-smoking policy. As normal, seats are hard so bring a cushion as well as a blanket as even summer evenings can get chilly. Small enough stadium that's easy to get around with easy handicap accessibility. Be sure to park down the road as your windshield will still be in tact. The parking lot offers the perfect spot for a foul ball landing!
