A state known mostly for their famous potatoes holds some of the most scenic views and rich history in the Western United States. From the high desert in Southern Idaho to the forests in the North, you’ll find adventure. Take the time to explore this hidden treasure known as the Gem State.
Idaho has 13 national forests and even more state parks for nature buffs to explore. Thousand Springs State Parks consists of multiple units - Earl M. Hardy Box Canyon Springs, Malad Gorge, Billingsley Creek, Niagra Springs, and Ritter Island - all in the Gooding-County area. Step where astronauts trained at the Craters of the Moon National Monument & Preserve. You can hike and camp across the dormant lava fields at this beautiful preserve between Arco and Carey, Idaho. In Twin Falls, you’ll find the Snake River Canyon - ranging up to 500 ft. and 0.25 miles wide, and runs a little over 50 miles. Evel Knievel famously had an unsuccessful jump over the canyon in 1974.
There may not be any beaches in Idaho, but the number of lakes, rivers, and waterfalls makes up for that. Shoshone Falls is also located in Twin Falls as well. It is 45 ft. higher than Niagara Falls. Up north in the panhandle of Idaho is a dam-controlled lake named Lake Coeur d’ Alene. It offers cycling trails, swimming beaches, and bald eagle sightings. Also in the North, is the Pend Oreille Lake. It’s deep enough to navigate submarines in. It’s actually the fifth-deepest lake in the nation.
The mountains of Idaho contain veins of rare minerals like gold and silver. Among these rare minerals are gems - star garnets (Idaho's state gem), Jasper, Opal, Topaz, and more. The desert portion of the state is home to sprawling hills full of sagebrush, bitterbrush, and other low lying grasses. The forests consist mainly of conifers or pine trees. Barley, onions, and of course, potatoes, are some of the best crops to grow in Idaho’s climate. Tall Fescue and Kentucky Bluegrass are among the type of grass recommended to plant for your lawn.
Speaking of Bluegrass, visit the iconic artificial, blue football field at Albertsons Stadium - home of the Broncos - in Boise, Idaho. If you’re more of a city person, Boise is a perfect place to visit and live. The state capital hosts an art museum, history museum, zoo, aquarium, tours of The Old Idaho Penitentiary that was a functional prison from 1872 to 1973, skiing opportunities, beautiful scenery, and a booming nightlife scene.
