Welcome to Idaho Falls! As the largest city in Eastern Idaho and the 4th largest city in the state, Idaho Falls provides a welcoming business environment, among the lowest utility rates in the state and country, trained and qualified talent, and leisure opportunities second to none.

Idaho Falls is home to almost 67,000 residents. The high quality of life and a myriad of educational opportunities in the region are only some of the reasons for this. Six secondary education institutions call Idaho Falls home and six post-secondary institutions operate in the greater Idaho Falls area. In addition, Idaho Falls is an aesthetically beautiful community. The majestic Snake River flowing through the city creates the perfect backdrop for our river walk, bike trails, and award-winning city parks. These assets contribute to the business and resident-friendly atmosphere Idaho Falls offers.

Living in Idaho Falls is a pleasure, and doing business in Idaho Falls is a smart decision. To facilitate growth and development, Idaho Falls offers one-stop professional development services, a progressive and flexible city planning mentality, and competitive fees.
