Few cities in the U.S. are quite as scenic as Idaho Falls, Idaho. Resting near the 600-foot-wide waterfalls of Snake River, the city is packed to the brim with many incredible sights and beautiful places to explore.

With lush greenery at every corner and parks around every block, there is plenty to look out for when you are out and about in Idaho Falls.

Here are 18 things to do in Idaho Falls that we know you and your family will love.

SNAKE RIVER GREENBELT

Pack your walking shoes or have a bike to ride because the first major attraction in Idaho Falls is the Snake River Greenbelt. Also known as the Idaho Falls River Walk, this track is massive in its width and length, allowing both hikers and bikers to travel simultaneously.

The track spans five miles right beside the Snake River. So as you walk or bike your way on the trail, you can rest assured that you will get to see plenty of fun attractions. The track is so long that it passes by multiple restaurants and shops, allowing you to take in the local scene.

The trail is also completely paved, ensuring that you feel comfortable as you’re walking. The best part? You even get to walk past the massive 600-foot-wide falls that the city is named after.

You will also be passing through the farmer’s market and some beautiful private gardens as well. And if you come during the summers, city officials will also extend the trail to Freeman Park, which allows you to continue sightseeing from there. It should easily be the first thing you go on when you come to the city.

SPORTSMAN PARK

Sportsman Park is a vital piece of history for Idaho Falls since it’s home to a lot of important tourist attractions. It’s very much a little island in the middle of the Snake River, making it an especially cute part of the city — and it’s easily accessed from the Snake River Greenbelt.

The park is lush with all sorts of greenery and abundant plant life. It’s in a very historically important location, as it is right beside the first bridge that completely crossed the Snake River on the East Side.

There are also plenty of public viewing spots, decks, and gardens throughout this small island, all of which you can even rent out for those special occasions. One of those incredibly beautiful public locations is the Japanese Friendship Garden, which is commonplace for people to take wedding pictures.

JAPANESE FRIENDSHIP GARDEN

Speaking of the Japanese Friendship Garden, it’s certainly worth talking about this location. This culturally significant location is very important, seeing how it commemorates its relationship with the city Tokai-Mura. Tokai-Mura and Idaho Falls are sister cities, which spawned a partnership to educate each other about their cultures and traditions.

The Friendship Garden features plenty of beautiful decorations that have made it look culturally appropriate. You can find various plant life that looks amazing with the specific urban setting that the city has. Furthermore, it also has a traditional Japanese garden gate.

The Japanese Pavilion is located here, as well. Completely built by volunteers, the building of this beautiful monument became a large-scale community project that was finished in 2016.
