Idaho Falls

Welcome to Idaho Falls!

The Idaho Falls area (or “I.F.” to the locals) is a wonderful place to call home, although I may be a bit biased!

Demographics

Compared to the Nation’s larger metro-hubs, Idaho Falls is a small bedroom community. The city boasts about 60,000 residents (not including neighboring Ammon, which hosts about another 15,000). In addition, like many smaller cities it is considered a safe, stable and quiet place to reside. Idaho Falls is the Bonneville County seat, with Bonneville having about 112,000 residents.

Economy

The MSA is economically a stable place. We tend to not have the dramatic swings in employment or home values like many places in the country. Major employers are the Idaho National Lab, the medical field  and, like many smaller communities, various branches of local government. Furthermore, we serve as a medical hub for the Eastern Idaho/Western Wyoming region, servicing 300,000+ residents. That means our medical services here are great!

Location

We are 90 mins to 2.5 hours in any direction to arguably some of the best recreational opportunities you will find in the country! Keep your home base here and visit Yellowstone National Park, Grand Teton National Park, Sun Valley, Craters of the Moon, City of Rocks…the list goes on!

If you have not been here, plan a visit for our next vacation and see what the area has to offer. I doubt you’ll be disappointed!
