Make it a magical day with breakfast at Abracadabra’s in Idaho Falls. Hop in the car for a drive along the Mesa Falls Scenic Byway, where you can stop and see Upper and Lower Mesa Falls—the two falls are located just one mile apart and are viewable from multiple platforms. Afterward, enjoy lunch at Frostop Drive-In before heading north to Harriman State Park for outdoor recreation and wildlife viewing opportunities. Step back in time for dinner at Five 11 Main in Ashton (try the huckleberry milkshake!) and then hibernate for the night at The Fishing Bear Lodge.

Lead off the morning with a filling breakfast at The Cafe at Island Park Lodge before traversing the half-mile wildlife-viewing trail at Big Springs. Feed the resident trout and explore the historic Johnny Sack Cabin, built in 1932. Take a lunch break at Connie’s Restaurant & Saloon and then head to Henrys Lake State Park, renowned for its high-mountain lake and exceptional fishing. Walk or bike along the nature trails for wildlife and wildflower viewing (the best time for wildflowers is spring through early summer). Finish the day with a slice of pie and a scoop of ice cream at The Parlor at Mack’s Inn followed by a solid night’s rest at Springhill Suites Island Park Yellowstone.
