Snake River Greenbelt

Reviewed By pearhead1 - Idaho Falls, Id

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.

Idaho Falls Zoo at Tautphaus Park

Reviewed By ransom007 - Anaheim, California

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.

Japanese Pavilion

Reviewed By northernneckinn - Tappahannock, Virginia

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!

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.

Giant Eagle Waterfall Nest

ref: http://www.roadsideamerica.com/tip/38247

Reviewed By William M - Boston, Massachusetts

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.

Melaleuca Field

Reviewed By DiverMom18 - Idaho Falls, Idaho

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!

The day I went there they had a display from local Russian Impressionist that was out of this world. From what I read regarding the works thay were submitted, various celebrities own some of the artwork by these artist. From what I understand, thos museum has even had art by Pablo Picasso and other masters of art. I recommend you call ahead and ask what is being displayed at the moment, just in case you may not have a taste for certain kinds of artwork. Great museum!

Freeman Park

Summer time can be enjoyed by walking on the paths, sitting on the benches, seeing the War Memorial, enjoying the frisbee golf course, or hanging out by the river.
Winter brings a cross-country ski trail, snowshoeing opportunities and walking. A beautiful park to be enjoyed any time of the year!

We held a birthday party for our twin toddlers at the Artitorium, and everyone absolutely loved it! It's so perfect; it's an amazing resource for everyone in the Idaho Falls region. The kids and the parents all had a fantastic time and enjoyed the exhibits, all of which were cool and fun and clever. The art classes are fabulous too.

This place is a gem!
