Idaho Falls is pretty laid back, but it's becoming a more bustling place than when I grew up here. If you like the outdoors, it's great, because it's close to an amazing variety of terrain. Fishing, hunting, water sports, climbing, skiing, rock-hounding, hiking, camping, you name it, and it's easy to go from pine forests to prarie. We also have a unique lava flow nearby- the Arco desert is very cool.
Most of the country is classic steppe.
The arts scene here is growing, and Idaho Falls is a pretty good place to live if you like a quiet life. The Snake River runs through the middle of town, and the 'falls' is actually a steep cascade. There are well developed neighborhoods, brand new ones, and everything in between, and we have a lot of public parks for our size. We also have a civic swimming pool and several civic amenities, including an auditorium and a race track.

Right now, all construction is slow, and looks to be into 2011, but it may pick up during the second half of the year. So far, I.F. has done a little better during this recession than the rest of the state.

The best thing to do is to come out for a week or two if you can and size the place up. All of Idaho is a pretty independent place, and folks of all kinds find a place here.
