Written by Sarah Rohrbach

Southern Idaho is very photogenic, but some of those locations are hidden away just waiting to be discovered. Listed are the most photogenic locations in Southern Idaho!

1. Shoshone Falls

The most iconic destination in Twin Falls is Shoshone Falls. The Niagara of the West is 212 ft tall, has a rainbow almost all day everyday, and looks incredible at sunrise and sunset. This place makes for the picture perfect post card!

2. Perrine Bridge

Seen from multiple views along the Snake River Canyon, the Perrine Bridge stands almost 500 ft tall. BASE jumpers leap from the bridge and the water stills at dusk. The famous and historic bridge is perfect to capture! Where do you need to stay to capture the Perrine Bridge and Shoshone Falls? Stay at a glorious hotel in Twin Falls, the TownePlace Inn and Suites! If you enjoy more of a boutique option, book a room at the Fillmore Inn.

5. Pillar Falls

This other worldly location is stunning, sitting on the Snake River, the water can be still leaving a smooth reflection of the towering rocks. Photographs usually look like they are from another planet down here! Lodge at a beautiful new hotel that sits near the Snake River Canyon, TownePlace Suites and Marriott.

7. Lake Cleveland

Drive up the mountains past Albion to see gorgeous views. Just before the top of the mountain sits Lake Cleveland, a glistening alpine lake! Trees, wildflowers, and cliff sides surround the blue lake where kayaks and paddle boards float by. Lake Cleveland has a wonderful campground, or stay in a romantic suite at Best Western Burley.

8. Balanced Rock

Balanced Rock makes a pretty neat selfie location because of its incredible shape! The huge boulder sits on a 3 foot by 17 inch pedestal, and legitimacy is balancing. Don’t worry, it won’t tip over any time soon so climb up to the top to get a photo with it!
