New Plymouth, Idaho ... The World's Largest Horseshoe

New Plymouth is a wonderful community that welcomes all who visit. The country is beautiful, the people are friendly, and life here runs at just the right pace. Our city streets create a horseshoe shape, giving our small town the title of the "World's Largest Horseshoe". It truly is a lucky place to live and play.


In the water . . . but out of harm's way

In the water . . . but out of harm's way

Swimming pools and beach vacations, waterskiing at the lake and rafting on the river, canoeing, kayaking, fishing, boating, wake boarding, tubing, jet skiing, snorkeling, sailing, surfing, and swimming - when it's summertime and the mercury is on the rise, there is nowhere we'd rather be than in the water! North America’s lakes, rivers, and seas are oases of beauty and respite from the summer sun, so it’s no surprise that swimming is summer’s number one pastime. But as you enjoy the season's final days, please make water safety your first priority. Swimming cools us off and keeps us fit, but it can also be dangerous. Drowning is the number one cause of unintentional death among children aged 1-4, and it's the number two cause of unintentional death among those aged 5-24. A moment of distraction can be fatal, so please take great care to keep yourself and your loved ones safe in the water.
