It is a safe and friendly place to live. It is a good place for families. The school is small and centered around community. There aren't many job opportunities because the town is so small. I wish they were better at taking care of the roads. The potholes are ridiculously bad and they don't keep the roads cleared in the winter. Overall, I like living here and it's very affordable.

I love Shelley. There is a lot of nice people. There is a pool and 3 pizza places. Shelley has multiple businesses. We have 2 grocery stores. Shelley is a very beautiful place to live. It is a great place for farming.
Shelley is famous for their Spud Day. We are a small town close to Idaho Falls. We are slowly getting bigger. We have excellent schools that help the students reach their dreams.
