Shoshone Falls, just three miles to the east of Twin Falls, has been called "The Niagara Falls of the West", because of its spectacular beauty and 212-foot drop. The best time to view the falls is during the spring and early summer when the snow melt is in full swing and the water flow is the highest. The park surrounding the falls offer many opportunities for recreation, including swimming, a boat ramp, playgrounds, and picnic areas. Drivers beware that there is a $3 per car entrance fee to the park during the peak season.
Holesinsky Vineyard a
James Holesinsky, the founder and owner of Holesinsky Vineyard and Winery, was formally trained as a chemist, but developed a passion for gardening. Wine making was the perfect fit. James does not consider himself a scientist or a gardener, but an artist instead. Southern Idaho is hardly wine country, but Holesinsky has been producing high quality USDA certified organic wine since 2001 in the prairie lands in the town of Buhl, just East of Twin Falls. One of his popular varieties is the Fat Man Merlot. Tastings are available daily for a nominal fee.
