Got to find a place that's away from traffic yet have shopping not more than 1 hour away that doesn't have tons of traffic or long lines and or no parking.

Yellowstone south of the i86 interchange is heavy but moves it is not bumper-to-bumper; however the Northgate interchange appears to have helped more than I thought it would in reducing traffic entering the interstate headed east to I15. However, south of the interchange, it is still heavy after about 8AM. Not just up around Wally World but also south of Flandro into downtown Poky. (I used to jump on Hiline/Flandro to hit Yellowstone to miss the I86 junction if going south of Wally's.

But nothing is bumper-to-bumper and as noted, it does flow...but I would say OK.

I would say look at American Falls, west of Poky. Short jump from there to Walmart in Poky via I86. Idaho Falls has heavy traffic around their shopping areas (around Grand Teton Mall area) either via 17th/25th streets or from the south via Sunnyside. This is even true during weekdays or weekends; however, if I need to head up there, I do prefer weekdays vs. weekends.

I have a question about the American Falls Reservoir: Does it have public access beaches or trails that you can hike on with your dogs and let them play in the water?


I visited Pocatello a month ago and thought it was very pretty with the mountains all around. The mountains were bigger and prettier than they look in pictures. I really loved the topography. The city had a good vibe about it, cute neighborhoods and pretty trees.

The one negative observation was how congested the city was in the little valley there...it felt a little cramped to me. Also, many 1-way roads, which allow good traffic flow...traffic was moving right along... but this can be difficult to navigate for outsiders. I personally hate 1-way roads, but they worked very well in the area of Pocatello we drove through.

Really nice area overall, we came down through Lava Hot Springs and camped on BLM land outside of McCammon. Very beautiful trees and mountains, we enjoyed the scenery so much in that area.

I see notes about 4 boat accesses on lake https://www.visitpocatello.com/ameri...lls-reservoir/ with Sportsman’s Park near Aberdeen having a walking path.

2 beaches mentioned here. http://americanfalls.uslakes.info/POI/Beaches/

A beach, open space and a trail here. https://www.cityofamericanfalls.com/...creation-area/


A boat access below the dam on the river. https://www.cityofamericanfalls.com/...rtsman-access/

I wouldn’t be too concerned in the short term. With a democratic senate, congress, and President, I think these smaller metros will maintain their funding. For now, anyway.
