Featured as one of the best, can’t miss destinations for your bucket list this year by The Travel, Shoshone Falls is yet again at the top of many traveler’s minds as the year is quickly rolling into the fourth quarter.

It’s been said that Spring is the best time to see Shoshone Falls, and other times of the year the water levels might be much lower, but a lot of people enjoy going when the water is almost completely diminished so you can see the stunning dry rock formations.

The Travel says...

“Travelers passing through the western US should consider taking a stop at a place known as the Niagara of the West. Its real name is Shoshone Falls, where its towering falls and the beauty of the surrounding area draw tourists to the state of Idaho every year. Shoshone Falls allows travelers the chance to experience Shoshone Falls and its unique beauty in the incredible tranquil setting in quiet Idaho.”

You might be wondering why they’re calling Shoshone Falls, “The Niagara of the West.”

According to The Travel...

“Shoshone Falls earns this nickname with its impressive horseshoe-shaped falls that plummet 212 feet across the almost 900-foot distance of the falls. This spectacle is one that brings travelers across the country every year to experience. When travelers see Shoshone Falls for the first time, they will understand how it got its nickname as the “Niagara of the West.”
