As the “Gateway to the Northwest,” Pocatello welcomes visitors with charm and aplomb, from its beautiful scenery to its elegantly historic downtown. Pocatello is the largest city in Bannock County as well as the county seat. It ranks high on many “best” lists, and it is a college town – Idaho State University is located here.
Fort Hall was established in 1834 by fur trader Nathaniel Jarvis Wyeth and soon became an important Oregon Trail stop. A replica of Fort Hall serves as a museum in Pocatello, while the fort’s buildings are located at Fort Hall Indian Reservation and are a National Historic Landmark. Historic Old Town Pocatello is a great destination, filled with coffee shops, bars, bakeries, restaurants, art galleries, shops, and other businesses. Old Town also hosts events, such as an annual art walk, and the farmers market.
Pocatello is ideally located for outdoor adventures. It is just a few hours from Yellowstone National Park, the country’s first national park and a great place for camping and hiking. Other area recreation includes biking, skiing, mountain climbing, and fishing. Pocatello features more than 30 local parks with playgrounds, ball fields, and picnic areas.
