Twin Falls

Welcome to the city that has it all. Twin Falls is the largest city in Twin Falls County and the fastest growing city in south-central Idaho. People have been living in this area for thousands of years, Shoshone and Bannock tribes called this place home. In 1905 is was incorporated as a village, and in 1907 it became the seat of the newly formed Twin Falls County. There is a current population of about 54,000 people, and it is the 8th largest city in Idaho. There is a strong school system, 3 high schools, 4 middle schools, and 9 elementary schools. College of Southern Idaho is also in Twin Falls, it is a public community college, with approximately 7,000 students. Most students commute from off campus, but that is the beauty of this area, you can get across the city in 15 minutes. Twin Falls lies just south of the Snake River Canyon, which is only the beginning of beautiful scenery and outdoor activities that Twin Falls has to offer. Kayaking the Snake River, fishing, golfing, exploring the countless trails, or if you’re daring, base jumping off of the iconic Perinne Bridge. The bridge is named after the main founder of Twin Falls, I.B. Perinne. It is one of the few man-made structures where base jumping is allowed year-round without a permit.

Twin Falls is also the home to the Evel Knievel jump site, where Robert ‘Evel’ Knievel, an explorer, daredevil, and motorcyclist, attempted the mile long leap of the Snake River Canyon on his specially engineered rocket motorcycle. Twin Falls is a great place to live, it is a smaller city with a tight-knit community, an affordable cost of living that is lower than most cities in the state, diverse in restaurants and activities for everyone. There is no shortage of epic waterfalls to visit. To the beauty of the Shoshone Falls, which is known as “the Niagara of the West’ or the waterfalls you can walk behind. The Shoshone Falls are a must see attraction in Twin Falls, they are 212 feet tall and 900 feet wide, making it one if the largest natural waterfalls in the United States, surpassing the hight of the famous Niagra Falls. The true beauty and power of this waterfall is best experienced in the spring, and to make it even more exciting, on select nights in June, there is a dazzling light show that lights up the falls. It is a magical experience you wouldn’t want to miss. Another beauty that Twin Falls treasures is our Historic Downtown. It is the heart of the city, covers multiple blocks and has something for everyone. Shopping at the boutiques, enjoying delicious food at the local restaurants, sampling the craft breweries, watching local theater productions, listening to live music, or even cooling down at the splash pad, there is something for everyone to enjoy. Not to mention the many farmers markets, festivals, and parades that are hosted there.
