Gateway To The Northwest

Nicknamed the "Gate City" in short of it's full nickname, The Gateway To The Northwest, Pocatello is a city often overlooked by those who pass by. Whether you know Pocatello for its once infamous city flag or as the home of the Idaho State University Bengals, it's a place that seems to have a connection to everyone. It's like the Kevin Bacon of small cities.

Conveniently located just two hours north of Salt Lake City, three hours east of Boise, and 45 minutes south of Idaho Falls, there's a lot to do in any direction out of Pocatello. There's no wonder why it was deemed the Gateway to the Northwest. If you stay on I-15 heading north you'll hit I-90 which will take you all the way over to Seattle. Or, stay on I-84 and you'll travel to Portland and the famous Oregon coast. So, next time you're traveling to the northwest, be sure to make a stop at the gateway and spend some time there, you might be surprised at what you find.
