The Idaho Falls River Walk, acting as a city landmark, spans five miles and highlights the importance of the Snake River to the early inhabitants and settlers in the area. It has become an admired destination for visitors and locals alike over the years. When I went they had scooters which was super fun to zip around the entire river walk.
