Have you ever been to Shoshone Falls? During our road trip from Utah to Washington, we decided to stop in Idaho. On our way home, we drove a much more direct route back to Utah than we did on the way there.
I considered driving the whole way home (approx. 12-14 hour drive), but was so exhausted that we did end up stopping in Idaho again on the way back.
Resting in Idaho
I was beginning to think that I probably should have just driven home. This stop didn’t compare to our Idaho visit at the beginning of our trip.
Fortunately, we did stop at Shoshone Falls on our way home the next morning, which made our time in Idaho worth it.
Shoshone Falls was the perfect stop along the way. It wasn’t a planned stop, but we were tired and needed to get out of the car for a minute.
Twin Falls Exit
We ended up getting off at the Twin Falls exit and decided to pull over at a bridge that we saw. The bridge ended up being the Perrine Bridge, which goes over the Snake River.
Next to the bridge was the Shoshone Falls Visitor Center. We went inside and looked around and they ended up giving us a map to Shoshone Falls.
Visiting the Waterfall
The waterfall was a short drive from there and so we decided to go see the falls. Once we got there, we were able to park very close to the actual waterfall. It was only $3 per car (check for current prices).
Besides the scenic overlook, you can also find areas for hiking, or picnics. It really was a nice place to stop.
