One of the greatest places I have ever lived. I’m 70 years old and have lived all over the USA and Rupert is the only place I have lived that is everything I’ve ever wanted. Great people, great community, great services and wonderful atmosphere. Rupert Square is the place to enjoy our history as well as the Minidoka Museum.
Rupert is a great small town were the people are friendly, and the scenery is beautiful. With the Snake River close by, there are plenty of opportunities to enjoy a vast amount of outdoor activities as well as great food at the local restaurants.
