Founded in 1889, Pocatello is known as the “Gateway to the Northwest.” As pioneers, gold miners and settlers traveled the Oregon Trail, they passed through the Portneuf Gap south of town. Stage and freight lines and the railroad soon followed, turning our community into a trade center and transportation junction.

 

Pocatello still carries on this tradition with excellent air, rail, and ground transportation at the intersection of I-15 & I-86. We offer access to cutting-edge telecommunications services and are home to many high technology companies. We have also been recognized by Forbes as a "Best Small Place for Business" six years in a row. Most recently Pocatello was ranked 2nd on Forbes Cost of Doing Business index. In addition, we have been ranked one of the top ten small places to move and raise a family according to Primary Relocation and World ERC. Pocatello has also been ranked by the AARP as one of the top cities in the U.S. to retire. All this plus we are just minutes to a day's drive away from the best recreational opportunities the West has to offer!

 

For over 100 years, Pocatello has welcomed visitors, tourists, new residents and new businesses, so please make use of our web site information to answer any questions you may have about Pocatello, “Gateway to the Northwest.”
