While you’re in Rupert we suggest checking out Sofie’s Chatterbox for delicious breakfast food! A great place to stay is the Drift Inn, where they also serve delicious comfort food. If the heat gets to you, head over to Heyburn Riverside Park and rent a kayak from Idaho Water Sports. They are located right on the water and you have access to paddle from there. On a hot day in July, nothing feels better than a dip in the Snake River!
