Only three miles from downtown,these 212 foot tall falls are pronounced “Show-Shōn” and flow over a canyon rim nearly a 1,000 feet wide. They’re in fact 45 feet taller than Niagara! Standing on the side of the Shoshone falls, the sound of that massive volume of water cascading down to the valley floor will make you realize just how small you really are.

Tip: Since the Snake River is fed mostly by snowmelt it’s a good idea to visit them during the winter or early spring to see them in their full potential.
