Adventure Awaits in Your Idaho Falls Airport Rental Car
Located less than a mile from the Idaho Falls Regional Airport, it’s fast and easy to hop in your Thrifty rental car, start exploring and see why Idaho Falls was named to National Geographic’s list of “100 Best Adventure Towns.”
Ice Skating at the Marmo/Lehto Ice Arena
Put down the keys to your Thrifty rental car and lace up your skates to experience southeastern Idaho’s premier year-round ice facility. With an 85’x190’ ice surface, there’s plenty of room to move. And with an on-site rental shop, you don’t need to have your own skates to have a good time. If you’re traveling in the winter, you also have the option to skate an outside rink located just east of the arena in Tautphaus Park.
Idaho Falls Zoo
If you’re visiting April–September, drive your Thrifty rental car to Tautphaus Park to explore the Idaho Falls Zoo. With exhibits that span the globe, you’ll find 28 African species (including lions and zebras), several endangered Asian species (including snow leopards), Australian and New Guinea favorites like wallabies and kookaburra, North American species like golden eagles and otters, South American wildlife like flamingos and macaws and even a children’s petting zoo.
Yellowstone National Park
Less than two hours from Idaho City lies one of the country’s greatest national parks. Just hop in your Thrifty rental car and take US-20 East to explore the famed Yellowstone National Park. If you’re traveling in the summer (April 19–November 4), you can enter the park via the West Entrance, accessing the Madison region of the park. Once inside, the scenic West Entrance Road follows the Madison River, rich with wildlife and waterfowl, until it meets the Grand Loop Road at Madison Junction. Here, you can see Gibbon Falls and Firehole Canyon Drive, less than a mile south of the Junction, with swimming areas and paved roads for cyclists.
Idaho Falls Greenbelt
Park your Idaho Falls Airport rental car in downtown Idaho Falls to start your stroll along this scenic, six-mile paved foot trail. Winding alongside the Snake River, the Greenbelt takes you down Riverside Drive, through the south side of downtown Idaho Falls and past several scenic viewing areas, including the War Veterans Memorial, fisherman’s park and a beautiful, 22 foot waterfall that stretches over 600 feet wide. While on the trail, you can feed ducks and geese, walk down to the water to fish or just pack a lunch and dine al fresco.
Historic Downtown Idaho Falls
With a little something for everyone, Idaho Falls’ historic downtown district is a must see. Whether you want to shop, sip, eat or stroll, you’ll find plenty to do on these streets lined with boutiques, coffee houses, antique stores, art galleries, restaurants and historic buildings. Park your Thrifty rental car and take a guided walking tour of the district to unlock the history surrounding the many buildings and residential homes in the area.
