Hi, everyone:

My husband and I are originally from a small town in Illinois and recently moved to Florida. WE DO NOT LIKE IT HERE! I particularly do not like the amount of violent crime in the area we moved to (Cape Coral and Fort Myers). We have decided to spruce up the house we bought here and sell it and move to Idaho Falls. I was reading the posts and liked the info given by banjomike. Thank You banjomike. You gave a lot of good info on all things IF. Hope to see IF for ourselves soon.

We're from out-of-state too and never have experienced snow until we came here. Idaho Falls is amazing! If you like lots and lots of entertainment, this might not be the place for you BUT if you like quiet, friendly people, amazing scenery, see a deer or fox every once in a while, you will like it here. We came from a very busy community, crime, "all-about-me" attitudes and found really GREAT place to live. Sometimes I still can't believe that we're here. The parks are beautiful too! If you're coming out to visit, don't just stay by the downtown area, go up 25th and see the neighborhoods and the other shopping centers that are in the middle or by Ammon. You'll really see Idaho Falls that way. Shopping is so convenient and you have everything you need. I love it also, because everything is pretty much in 5-10 minutes driving distance. So many cute houses here, and doesn't have "stupid-crazy" prices to go with it. You mean a family can actually afford to live here? What an amazing concept! I wonder why we waited so long to move here….but that's in the past, grateful we're here now. Good Luck to you!

Hi Satinslady,

Welcome to the Idaho Falls and surrounding areas thread.

Banjomike is quite helpful to many. I know some of the posters in the I'D forum wish he would write a book about I'D history.

To add to what others have written, you don't need to answer this publically, just make sure it's on your list.

Do either you or your husband have ongoing cardiac or Pulmonary conditions? It matters given our altitude, given that you are coming from FL. Check with your MRS if these are realities for either of you.


Also, do you plan to visit before you move? We'll look forward to having you explore more. Please keep us updated about your plans so we might be able to give you some tips.

Bring some FL sunshine when you come
