The portion of the Snake River Valley which is now known as Bonneville County has been a crossroads for Indians, trappers, miners, vigilantes, road agents, a Pony Express, wagons, stagecoaches, railroads, homesteaders and nuclear specialists.
Bonneville County is part of the Upper Snake River Valley. Its eastern border is also the state border of Idaho and Wyoming. Idaho Falls, originally called Eagle Rock, is the county seat. Situated along the Snake River at the western edge of the world famous Rocky Mountains, Idaho Falls has all the features of big city living, but still embraces a small town charm. The skyline consists of the majestic Teton Mountain Range, and in its backyard is the world's most famous park - Yellowstone. Yellowstone National Park, located in western Wyoming and southwestern Montana, is only 2 hours from Idaho Falls. Idaho Falls is the closest metropolitan area to any of the park's entrances.
Take a day trip on the Mesa Falls Scenic Byway and witness the awesome beauty of Upper and Lower Mesa Falls or follow the road east for a nice drive through Grand Teton National Park. Or you can visit areas such as EBR-1, the world's first nuclear plant, Sun Valley, the first ski resort in the United States, or Craters of the Moon National Monument, an 'out of this world' experience.
