Buhl is just south of the historic Oregon Trail and its small-town life reflects the heart of our country in the early 1900’s. The people here are friendly, the stores cater to casual shoppers and the town itself is central to a number of the recreational opportunities offered by the Magic Valley. Shoshone Falls, Salmon Creek Falls, and a
number of hot springs can be found just outside town and make for great escapes for relaxing.
The City of Hagerman, which gives the Hagerman valley its name, was originally the site of a stagecoach stop, on the Overland Trail Route, along the Oregon Trail. Remains of this historic pioneer route can still be seen along the west side of the Snake River.
Today, the valley is the largest producer of commercial trout in the world. The mild climate and abundance of year round open water make the valley a preferred stop-off for migrating waterfowl.
So much open water also provides numerous water sport opportunities, making the Hagerman Valley a tourist's wonderland and a sportsman's dream.
Twin Falls Idaho
Twin Falls is located at the edge of the Snake River Canyon, where the Perrine Bridge rises 486 feet above the canyon to link the town to I-84 just to the north. Two golf courses and a community park are in the canyon, and a canyon rim trail provides spectacular views.
A few miles upriver Shoshone Falls, “The Niagara of the West,” plummets 212 feet over a 1,000 foot-wide basalt base. The College of Southern Idaho is also located here and is Idaho’s fastest growing institution of higher education, recognized for its excellence and innovation in academics, athletics, and technology.
