Welcome to Southern Idaho Tourism!

Southern Idaho Map

We promote recreation and tourism in a seven-county area of Southern Idaho. We also utilize tourism as a tool in community and economic development in an effort to grow the hospitality industry and bring economic benefit our communities.

Southern Idaho Tourism was incorporated in 1995. We employ a unique business model: a volunteer Board of Directors with a four member Executive Committee governs the organization. Day-to-day activities are managed by our Executive Director.

We're Here to Help

Our staff is dedicated to helping plan your Southern Idaho vacation by providing the most comprehensive information about our area. Please don't hesitate to contact us for more information.
