If You Live In Idaho, You Must Visit This Amazing City Park

When it comes to family-friendly destinations, Idaho has no shortage of manicured parks, refreshing swimming holes, museums, and dozens of other activities to enjoy on a warm summer’s day – or any season, really! But while our municipal parks often offer easy getaways, Porter Park in Rexburg is particularly special. Not only is it an expansive, lush park with plenty of play options; it’s also home to a rare vintage American treasure: a 100-year old wooden carousel – the only one of its kind in Idaho. Check it out!

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
