Welcome to the city of Preston, Idaho

A Message from the Mayor

Thank you for your interest in the City of Preston!  I hope you find our web-site helpful.

Preston, Idaho is one of the best kept secrets of the West.  Nestled on the Idaho side of beautiful Cache Valley and surrounded by towering mountains on each side, it is unbeatable for recreation opportunities, has that small town feeling, and is close to whatever you need.  It is one of the safest places to live in the State of Idaho and in Cache Valley.  The metro area also includes Logan, Utah, ranked another one of the safest places in the country.  Unemployment is Preston and the Cache Valley are always below the national average.

Preston is home to That Famous Preston Night Rodeo, the Idaho Festival of Lights, and many other fun events, along with its many recreational opportunities.  It is a great place to live and to visit in any season!

We welcome you to visit us or become a part of our community, as individuals and businesses, or hopefully both. You will find our contact information on the this web-site, and we encourage you to contact us any time for more information, comments, and suggestions.
