Now Old Town Pocatello is old hence the name being called Old Town Pocatello. I like this location because it does hold a treasure trove of history about the community. Also, my family helped establish it for that reason I like it. Now to me the best time to be there is during the winter. The reason being is that... More

If you're visiting Pocatello and have some spare time this is worth a stroll but it is not a "destination". I likely wouldn't even get off the highway for it if I was passing through but it is nice to see some effort being made to combat the ever growing mall shopping experience. Don't expect too much and you won't... More

This area was the least favorite of our visit to Pocatello and I admit there isn't much they can do about it. Like so many small towns that try to attract businesses that don't fit a mall type atmosphere, Old Town comes out average (not good, not bad); nothing to bring you back or say "I'm glad I took the...

I love old buildings and am very nostalgic therefore I love Old Town. Many shop keepers are restoring or enhancing their buildings making it more charming all the time. There is magic in individual shops you can't get in a mall atmosphere. The restaurants are quaint too.

There are several unique shops and it is fun to wander in and out of them. Some of them are quite expensive. Old town is looking much better with their beautiful plants and the Christmas lights. Farmers' Market is super

Like most cities that build malls...the downtown dies! This is no exception. There are stores there...thrift stores, antique stores, head shops and plenty of bars but nothing special! The mall is the saddest mall ever too!!

Old Town is full of history with the old buildings. Pocatello High School has been around for many, many years and you can see the old-time architectural designs in the work.

The town has added a lot of new shops and bistro type cafes, which is fun. They have put a lot of effort into giving down town Pocatello a face lift.....but the parking is limited. The shops I visited were nice for browsing....but pretty expensive.
