Arco is the county seat and largest city in Butte County. Much of the eastern part of the county is the vast Idaho National Laboratory, which extends eastward into neighboring counties.
Because of its unique location, Arco can offer both the benefits of a rural lifestyle and the amenities of the "Big City". Arco itself is a town with a population of 1,200 with another 2,000 people living in the surrounding county. It is situated at the junction of Highways 20/26 and Hwy 93. which makes it the natural hub of a very large area.
With the larger cities of Idaho Falls, Pocatello, Twin Falls and Sun Valley all located within a 1 to 2 hour drive of Arco, all of the amenities of city life can be quickly accessed. Living in Arco or surrounding areas means being able to fish the Big Lost River in the morning, shop at the mall in Idaho Falls or one of the other cities nearby in the afternoon, and still see the sunset over the Pioneer Mountains in the evening.
