Visitor Information

Pocatello is known as the “Gateway to the Northwest” (or "Gate City" by the locals). Pioneers, gold miners and settlers who traveled the Oregon Trail passed through our gates. Stage and freight lines and the railroad soon followed, turning our community into the trade center and transportation junction it is today.

Whether you're passing through or planning to stay for a while, Pocatello has a century-long tradition of welcoming everyone.

Come and see. You'll love where you visit!
