Idaho Falls is a great place! We have two boys, 12 and 14 years old and they love to play outside, ride bikes, fish, camp and ski. Idaho Falls, has a ski resort 20-30 minutes from town, Jackson Hole is about an hour away and Yellowstone National Park is about an hour and half away. Family oriented community with tons of fun stuff to do!

History of Innovation


Idaho has a long history of innovation. Philo Farnsworth of Rigby, Idaho is credited with the creation of the first electronic television set, and J.R. Simplot is the man behind frozen french fries. Idaho’s inventors harness brilliant ideas that change the world, and that still holds true today.


The Idaho Falls area is very family oriented with plenty of outdoor activities for all age groups and through all seasons of a year. We have been able to enjoy hiking, fishing, snowboarding/skiing, disc golf, and other traditional sports as a family. What I like about working in Idaho Falls is that there is a wide array of positions with varying levels of expertise. Six years ago I changed careers and was able to find entry level positions to get experience and grow my knowledge and career.

Mostly in Wyoming, the park spreads into parts of Montana and Idaho too. Yellowstone features dramatic canyons, alpine rivers, lush forests, hot springs and gushing geysers, including its most famous, Old Faithful. It's also home to hundreds of animal species, including bears, wolves, bison, elk and antelope.
