AROUND THE IDAHO FALLS AREA
Idaho Falls LDS Temple
Standing on the banks of the Snake River, just above the cascading waters for which the city is named, the gleaming white Idaho Falls Temple serves as a centerpiece to the city. Just east of the temple is a gorgeous garden and public visitors' center featuring films, displays, multimedia presentations, and an awe-inspiring reproduction of Thorvaldsen's Christus statue.
Tautphaus Park Zoo
Home to over 300 animals from six continents, the Tautphaus Park Zoo is roaring for attention. Its tree covered paths lead you from Bactrian Camels to African Lions to Australian Wallabies. Explore exhibits like the Primate Discovery Center and Asian Adventure. Whatever your interest, you are sure to have a wild time at the "best little zoo in the west."
