Parking at Idaho Falls Regional Airport

Flying from Idaho Falls Regional Airport (IDA) soon and driving to the airport?

Good move – traveling under your own steam means you can set your own timetable and (if you’re rolling in from outside the area), perhaps even take a day or so to explore the area before you fly.

Local attractions include the magnificent Museum of Idaho, which has many fascinating exhibits on art, natural history, and the history of the local region. And if you prefer animal attractions, Idaho Falls Zoo has over 1000 creatures from every part of the planet.

Idaho Falls is no slouch when it comes to the great outdoors either. For instance, hiking or biking the Greenbelt trails along the Snake River is always popular as it affords amazing city views, while a more leisurely stroll through Tautphaus Park reveals gorgeous gardens, a well-designed kids playground and even a petting zoo.

Meanwhile, culture vultures love watching plays and concerts at Idaho Falls Civic Center and sports fans appreciate soaking up the atmosphere at Melaleuca Field, home of minor league baseball’s Idaho Falls Chukars.

If the Greenbelt trail whets your appetite for exploring the Snake River further, you can go whitewater rafting and also see over 200 bird species (including falcons and bald eagles) in the Snake River Birds of Prey National Conservation Area. And don’t forget that Sawtooth National Forest is a beautiful hotspot for fishing and camping in striking distance from Idaho Falls.

After all these indoor, outdoor, natural and cultural activities, you’ll have worked up an appetite. And there are plenty of excellent eateries in Idaho Falls to satisfy a variety of tastes, including Copper Rill Restaurant with its high-end American fare crafted from local ingredients, and Jakers Bar and Grill, the best place in town for juicy burgers.

Alternatively, the Sandpiper Restaurant serves seafood dishes like pasta and steaks, while the Snakebite Restaurant is the perfect place for milkshakes, fries, and burgers with all the trimmings. And don’t forget Dixie’s Diner, which serves immaculate omelets, pancakes, and waffles.

Fancy letting your hair down while you’re in town? The Bee’s Knees lives up to its name with live music and an unforgettable atmosphere, while O’Brady’s Family Restaurant complements its fine menu with a huge variety of draft beers.

For something a little different, D’Railed serves tasty cocktails and board games, and Mackenzie River Pizza, Grill & Pub serves ice cold beer to complement its tasty bar food.

If you’re looking for a hotel, there are plenty of comfortable establishments here too. For instance, Hilton Garden Inn Idaho Falls is near the airport and Snake River, while the Holiday Inn Express & Suites Idaho Falls is near downtown and boasts a fitness area and pool.

There’s also La Quinta Inn & Suites Idaho Falls, with its sauna and hot tub, and Comfort Inn & Suites Idaho Falls, which is near the airport and provides a free breakfast buffet.
