Scotty’s Drive In – Idaho Falls, Idaho

Scotty’s has a nice space age look to the sign, and to the curvature of the supports for the canopy. Things get a bit visually cluttered with the retro tin signs and back-to-the-fifties theme on the inside, but on the whole it plays it pretty close to the original concept. ¬†They make a nice drive-in burger with just the right crust to the flat-top grilled meat.

Idaho Potato Museum – Blackfoot, Idaho

July, 2008
Hit up the Idaho Potato Museum on our way out to Butte, Montana for the National Folk Festival. Spent the night in Blackfoot, and a very nice, very quirky bed and breakfast.

Why stop at the Idaho Potato museum? I can’t think of any reason not to. Old train station, giant potato, Idaho local history. Hard to lose.
