The Magic Valley is located in south-central Idaho and consists of Blaine, Camas, Cassia, Gooding, Jerome, Lincoln, Minidoka, and Twin Falls Counties. The rich Snake River plain feeds this heavily agriculture focused region. This area got it’s name due to the construction of the Milner and Minidoka Dams and a series of irrigation systems built during the first part of the 20th century which “magically transformed” what had previously been a very dry desert environment.
There are a number of cultural and entertainment events to by found at many of the local county fairs in the region during late Summer. Sun Valley also offers several attractions throughout the year; Hagerman hosts one of the largest blues festivals in the state. Outdoor enthusiasts won’t have to look far to find something to keep them busy either – there are great opportunities for camping, hunting, and fishing all throughout the valley.
Located in south-central Idaho, the city of Jerome is surrounded by an efflorescing agricultural countryside, with beautiful mountains to the north and the meandering Snake River Canyon to the South.
