Twin Falls is a smaller town of around 50,000. I was born and raised in Twin Falls and moved away to attend college. The town is very conservative with not a lot of options for entertainment. The outdoors is a persons best bet on weekend activities, with the canyon being the busiest place. The town is growing with new businesses popping up both chain and local start ups! Overall, Twin is a pretty safe town and oriented to family life!

I love living in Twin Falls! It has a gorgeous landscape including waterfalls, canyons, close mountain ranges and more. I would love to see more of a night life here, but Twin Falls is growing rapidly! I like the small town feel. We can go to the grocery store and see people we know. We have a fairly safe town as well, I love being able to walk down the street and know I'll be safe. My commute to work is quite short and the traffic isn't bad in the early morning. If I want to escape to a quiet place, the mountains/hills are less than an hour away.
This area is rapidly growing! I love it here. It's been awesome to see all the change that has occurred over the past years. A lot of people from major cities move here to settle down. It's the perfect place to raise a family. It's safe, which draws a lot of people here. Tons of opportunities. And the nature of it is beautiful! The Magic Valley Canyon is a must see!
