Description: Even if you feel like Rexburg has absolutely nothing to do, you’ve at least heard of “R” Mountain. Menan Butte, commonly known as R Mountain among students and locals, can just a few miles west of town and is … Continued

Blacktail Park

So, to be completely honest, I was a little disappointed with Ririe Reservoir when we went. It was fun, and it was a good place to cool off, but there weren’t any sandy beaches or really anything to “do” there, … Continued

Demolition Derby

posted in: Other | 2

One of the main attractions during the Spring semesters are the demolition derbies. The hard part about that is that they aren’t very well advertised, as far as the dates go. You kind of just have to keep an eye … Continued

Description: Seventeen Mile Cave is a lava tube located just that (17 miles), west of Idaho Falls. The cave itself is not seventeen miles long (thank goodness!). It’s probably more like 1/4 mile or 1/6 of a mile long. When … Continued

Rexburg Tabernacle
