Enjoy the Beauty of East Idaho

From the mountains to the farmlands to the roaming wildlife, East Idaho makes for a memorable getaway. One of the best ways to see it is by road trip along their Scenic Byways. Whether you choose Mesa Falls Scenic Byway through the Targhee National Forest, the 70-mile Teton

 Scenic Byway, the Fort Henry History Byway, the Lost Gold Trails Loop, or the Sacajawea Historic Byway, you will be amazed by the beauty and history revealed to you.

You can also see the East via the Victor to Driggs Rail-Trail, which takes you close to Idaho’s segment of the impressive Yellowstone National Park. From there, drive through the free-roaming Yellowstone Bear World. You can also see your surroundings from the slopes. Skiers and snowboarders flock to Grand Targhee Resort and Kelly Canyon Ski Resort.

The Teton Arts Council is based in Driggs. It welcomes actors, writers and fine artists to its doors. You can also sample the award-winning spirits of Grand Teton Distillery or the brews of Grand Teton Brewing Company and Wildlife Brewing.

If your travels bring you here in July, visit the Teton Valley Summer Festival -- the hot air balloon races are a “must.”
