Idaho is home to some cool wildlife such as bears, moose, and wolves. However, when you want to see animals up close and in person, you don’t have to travel far. At Idaho’s best-kept secret, the Idaho Falls Zoo at Tautphaus Park, you can spend a gorgeous day outdoors, enjoying and learning more about all types of creatures. In fact, the Idaho Falls Zoo is known as the best little zoo in the West, and we completely agree.

The Idaho Falls Zoo at Tautphaus Park is open from April to October each year. Stop by the zoo’s website and Facebook page to learn more about hours, exhibits, current animals, upcoming events, and more.
