Twin Falls is the largest city in a 100-mile radius, making it a regional commercial center for both south central Idaho and northeastern Nevada.
Located on the edge of the spectacular Snake River Canyon, the city and its surrounding agricultural area was carved out of the rugged sagebrush high desert. Incorporated in 1905, it was named after the spectacular Twin Falls, located 7 miles NE of the town site. Halfway between Boise and Pocatello, Twin Falls is an ideal stopping place for travelers on their way to and from the Tetons and Yellowstone Park. It is at the heart of the Great Rift, a 635-square mile geological phenomenon, a series of fissures, spatter cones and lava tubes created by 60 different lava flows and over 25 volcanic eruptions. Near Twin Falls are unique geological features like Rock Creek Canyon, Snake River Canyon, Balanced Rock and Malad Gorge. The Snake River provides water sports opportunities and the "South Hills" foothills just 30 miles South of Twin Falls offer camping, trails, and beautiful outdoor scenery.
