Challenging rock-climbing, world-class mountain bike trails, traditional and disc golf courses and an active Greenway are some of the outdoor offerings located right in Pocatello.

Learn to squeegee at the world’s only Museum of Clean; stand in awe of saber tooth cats and giant prehistoric bison at the Idaho Museum of Natural History, or see Native American and pioneer history come alive at the life-size Fort Hall Replica and Bannock County Historical Museum. Float the lazy river at the aquatic center; enjoy strolling through the historic architecture in Old Town Pocatello; or see Grizzlies, Cougars, Bison and the other native species of Yellowstone up-close at Zoo Idaho.

Pocatello is adjacent to the Fort Hall Indian Reservation where learning about Native American culture at the Sho-Ban Museum is interesting for all ages.
