Twin Falls and Jerome are two closely-linked, growing communities with strong agricultural roots. They’re located in the region known as the Magic Valley, named for the early settlers who “magically” transformed this arid, largely uninhabitable land into a lush, agricultural paradise by irrigating their fields with water from the nearby Snake River.
Today these thriving communities are still dedicated to family life and rich western traditions. Located about 120 miles southeast of Boise, the Magic Valley’s four-season climate is a recreation lover’s dream. From our beautiful Snake River Valley to the rugged Sawtooth Mountains and world-famous Sun Valley resort, you’re just a scenic drive away from an outdoor paradise of boating, fishing, skiing, snowmobiling, backcountry trekking, and more.
The Snake River Canyon, which runs between these two towns, stretches ¼ mile and 500 feet deep in some places. It’s spanned by the Perrine Bridge—one of the only legal base jumping sites in the U.S. The canyon rim lends great views, with walking and biking trails running adjacent to this natural wonder, including a canyon-side walking trail next to St. Luke’s Magic Valley Medical Center. And majestic Shoshone Falls spans 1,500 feet across the Snake River, tumbling 212 feet in a straight drop—more than 30 feet farther than Niagara's famous falls.
Twin Falls is home to a vibrant arts and cultural scene, with visual and performing arts events throughout the year sustained by strong community support. Historic downtown Twin Falls offers old-school charm with great dining and shopping opportunities. And the College of Southern Idaho’s main campus is located in Twin Falls with a satellite campus in Jerome.
The new St. Luke’s Magic Valley Medical Center opened in 2011 to serve the healthcare needs of people from eight southern Idaho counties and northern Nevada. The 224-bed, 700,000 square-foot facility is the most technologically advanced in the state.
St. Luke's Jerome is a 25-bed critical access hospital that has a strong focus on emergency medicine, OB/GYN, family medicine, and geriatric care. Opened in 1952 as St. Benedict’s Hospital, St. Luke's Jerome today builds on its proud heritage to meet the challenges of 21st century rural healthcare.
