The highlight of our annual journey from Salt Lake City, Utah to Ketchum, Idaho is the stop at the Flying "J" Plaza truck stop. Great chance to experience "Americana" at it's cheesiest. Literally... This chain of service stations have showers, pinball machines, internet access, clean bathrooms, every kind of junky snack food imaginable, toys, semi-truck accessories, clothing…
You are driving along and everything is flat then suddenly the ground opens up to a dramatic canyon. A nice arched steel bridge spans across this chasm and there is an overlook at one end of it with a visitor's center. Motorcyclist daredevil Evel Knievel attempted to jump this section of the Snake River Canyon in 1974.
Twin Falls has lovely older homes, a large grassy park with lush shade trees and a cute downtown area that has some decent antique stores and thrift shops. Family run businesses still dot the storefronts.
- Pros:From the Highway to the sleepy old downtown district, it is quaint
- Cons:Soulless newer business strip with every chain store or restaurant imaginable
- In a nutshell:Great place to rest when road weary and explore Snake River Canyon
Once you get through the new shopping district and head towards the older section of Twin Falls you will find some... more travel advice
