Whoever said nightlife was all about the clubs, clearly hasn’t been to Eastern Idaho! With so many things to do in the region, why limit yourself to just the daytime? These night time favorites will get you thinking outside of the box (and out of your bed!)

Night Skiing At Kelly Canyon (Ririe, ID)  Eastern Idaho night ski.

Is there anything more exhilarating than skiing at night? When the moon is up, the crowds go down and make way for the Milky Way views and fresh turns! And no better way to fight the winter chill and those rubber ski legs than a soak after at Heise Hot Springs. Finish off the night with dinner and a drink at Heise Pizza.
