Twin Falls has always been one of those sleepy cities with a bit of history and beauty that not many people know about. The Twin Falls gorge and water falls are well worth the drive if your in the neighborhood. Whether your wanting to golf, swim, boat or just sight seeing the Twin Falls area has some nice sights.
The falls in Twin Falls is a great gem like Idaho Falls. Whereas Idaho Falls is quite wide, Twin Falls is higher and a bit more dramatic. Both are definitely worth seeing! At the actual falls there is a fenced walkway where you can lookout over a rocky outcropping to see a good portion of the canyon to the west and the dramatic colors and pools of the falls to the east.
There is also a nice picnic grounds near the falls with large trees for nice family reunions or a lazy summer afternoon nap.
Twin is situated between Pocatello and Boise and has a bit of each cultures. People routinely say the west isn’t that diverse, but having lived in many places in Idaho there is a definite difference in the people and atmosphere in Idaho. While many people in Pocatello and south-east Idaho associate more with Utah, Twin Falls and Boise has more of a Washington and Oregon feel to it.
On the main drive into the core of the City is a long expansion bridge that covers the gorge. I highly recommend taking the time to take the walk.
