September is the perfect time to take a trip to Twin Falls! The temperatures are cooler, but it still feels like summer. Festivals are happening all over Southern Idaho, nature is flowing and turning, and adventure awaits you! Take the perfect weekend trip in September to Idaho.
Twin Falls Adventures
All around Twin Falls you can find waterfalls! Visit Perrine Coulee to have an experience walking behind a waterfall. Park in the designated spaces on the road leading down to Centennial Waterfront Park. Continue down the canyon for kayak rentals or zipline tours! At Centennial Waterfront Park AWOL Adventure Sports is set up to lead you on your way to make new memories.
After you’ve chased waterfalls, kayaked under the Perrine Bridge, and zipped your way through the Snake River Canyon feast on locally sourced food! Try out RedHawk Gastropub located on the top of the canyon. Request a table out on the patio for luxurious views over the Snake River.
Take a bonus adventure south of Twin Falls to, what the locals call, the South Hills. In late September the trees start shifting and glowing. The drive to the top of the hills, Magic Mountain, takes about an hour from Twin Falls. However, you’ll begin to see the yellows and oranges of the trees just 30 minutes into the drive! There are many choices of hikes to pull off for like Ross Falls and Walhstrom Hallow.
Thousand Springs Festival of the Arts
Another wonderful excuse to take a weekend trip in September to Southern Idaho is Thousand Springs Festival of the Arts. September 24th and 25th is the Thousand Springs Festival of the Arts! This gorgeous venue holds a festival with dozens of vendors each year. The local artists set up along a blue river on Ritter Island and across the bridge. Browse through products like clothing, cooking ingredients, pottery, jewelry, and much more. Enjoy live music on Ritter Island and food/drink vendors all weekend long.
Both of these festivals can be done on the same day! Visit Ritter Island earlier in the day, then make it back to Twin Falls (Filer) by 6PM to attend Lights and Lasers at Legacy Fields. The venue is on the way home back from Thousand Springs and is located on Hwy 30.
