Take a bus trip!
Welcome to a Land Rich with Pioneer History, Native American Traditions, & Outdoor Recreation for Everyone!
Step into the Old West at the National Oregon/California Trail Center’s living history interactive adventure or visit Idaho’s Museum of Natural History where giant prehistoric bison still roam, then stop by the Idaho Potato Museum for free “Famous Idaho Potatoes.”
Many other museums and historic sites await you along the Pioneer Historic and the Bear Lake-Oregon Trail Scenic Byways. Beautiful mountain scenery dotted with lodging, shopping and dining experiences make the journey memorable for travelers seeking a taste of the West with all the comforts along the way.
For those who want to get out in to nature, biking and hiking on hundreds of trails, golf, fishing in over 30 reservoirs and lakes, camping, horseback riding, and rock climbing are just a few sports in this recreational wonderland. As you travel north from Salt Lake International Airport, visit Bear Lake, often called the Caribbean of the Rockies for its intense turquoise blue water, to enjoy water sports and backcountry exploration. At Lava Hot Springs, soak in world-famous odor free, natural mineral hot pools, just one of the many hot springs in the area.
Swim at the Olympic Swimming Complex with waterslides and the Intermountain West’s only public ten meter diving platforms. In Pocatello, named for a Shoshoni Indian Chief known for his fierce devotion to his people, enjoy attractions like the Historic Fort Hall Replica, world-class rodeo, or events at ISU’s Performing Arts Center.
