Benefits of Living in Idaho

Arriving in Idaho from the other side of America is definitely an immersive experience, but the rewards are plentiful. If you’re looking for larger-than-life sights and experiences wherever you venture, Idaho will be enriching no matter where you wander. Here's what you need to know as you prepare to move to Idaho!


Idaho History

Idaho’s history begins with the Native American tribes who lived in the region that is today the state of Idaho. The Coeur d’Alene were experienced traders living in villages established along the rivers of Northern Idaho and Washington, the Nez Perce lived across Idaho’s prairies, the Shoshone hunted and fished along the eastern foothills of the Rockies, and the Salish hunted buffalo and harvested plants along the edge of the Great Plains.

First contact from the United States occurred when the Lewis & Clark Expedition traveled through Idaho in 1805. Once the territory that is today Idaho became part of the United States, waves of immigrants began arriving in the region. Mountain men, French-Canadian fur trappers, Mexican vaqueros, gold miners, free Blacks and escaped slaves prior to the Civil War, Mormon farmers, and Japanese railroad workers all settled in the region. Today, you can trace the diverse cultural and historical heritage of Idaho back to the contributions each of these people groups made. Since then, Idaho has experienced mining, forestry, and industrial booms as well as times of upheaval but is now establishing itself as a vibrant and successful piece of America.


Idaho Business and Industry

In recent years, Idaho has become fertile ground for industrial development. Key industries in Idaho include food production, outdoor recreation, tourism, energy, technology, aerospace, and advanced manufacturing. With abundant natural resources, a diverse climate, and low business and energy costs, business sectors like the food industry have elevated Idaho into a producer of world class products. At the same time, outdoor recreation has boomed. From a testing ground for outdoor products to outdoor-themed establishments, Idaho is a great place for outdoor businesses. Tourism has grown in recent years, as Idaho welcomes thousands of visitors each year who support burgeoning recreation, lodging, and fine dining ventures. The energy industry is another leading employer and contributor to Idaho’s economic growth. A pioneer in clean energy production, Idaho sits at the cutting edge of alternative fuel research and education, linking businesses and universities to find modern solutions to energy needs.


Education in Idaho

Education is a priority in Idaho. Idaho’s state board of education has launched initiatives aiming to create a strong and well-equipped education system in Idaho. From programs designed to help the K-12 public school system improve student achievement, recruit teachers, and measure students’ success rates to initiatives such as Next Steps Idaho and College Application Week that increase college enrollment rates by helping pre-college students identify areas of interest and explore career and education options. There’s also been significant investment in providing STEM educational resources, curriculum, and teachers to students throughout the state. There’s also a growing number of scholarship opportunities, transfer and exchange programs, and resource guides provided by the state government to help students achieve their education goals.


Explore the Rocky Mountains

Idaho’s iconic mountains are one of the most celebrated draws of this beautiful state. Part of the Rocky Mountains that stretch across the Western US, Idaho’s Bitterroot Range sweeps across 4,862 square miles of the state. Clustered across the Idaho Panhandle, these mountains spill over into Montana and have earned such monikers as the Montana Alps. From picturesque peaks like Borah Peak, Trapper Peak, and Leatherman Peak to the Idaho Batholith – a 200-mile crest of rugged peaks scarred by steep canyons that features the largest federally protected wilderness area in the continental US, the Selway – Bitterroot Wilderness.

This wild backcountry is a hiker’s paradise, home to an amazing variety of trails, lakes, and rivers. The Selway – Bitterroot Wilderness is ideal for those who want to explore the unspoiled, rugged splendor of Idaho’s mountains. There’s the Blodgett Overlook Trail, Bear Creek Trail, Bass Lake, and climbs up St. Mary Peak within this pristine wilderness. And the Nez Perce National Historic Trail provides opportunities for walkers to enjoy varied scenery and a route that wanders for miles across Idaho on its way from Oregon to Montana.

There are also hubs of outdoor recreation like Silver Mountain in Kellogg and Lost Trail Powder Mountain. Here you can provide yourself with a base to explore the wild mountains, lakes, and rivers of Idaho during all seasons of the year. Coeur d’Alene, a picturesque and historic community sitting beside a scenic lake of the same name, provides another great option for lodging and equipping yourself to explore the beautiful interior of Idaho.


Idaho’s Natural Beauty

Besides the mountains, there’s many of other natural marvels in Idaho. You can wonder at the cascading vistas at Mesa Falls caused by 10-stories of dropping water and also explore nearby nature paths and a visitor’s center. You can wander along the Teton Scenic Byway, visiting expansive vistas and historic sites in your car. You will be able to soak up the atmosphere at the hot pools of Lava Hot Springs, fed by naturally warm geological activity. Or you can take in the thundering beauty of Shoshone Falls plummeting 212 feet into the Snake River Canyon. There’s also endless opportunities to explore at the Thousand Springs Scenic Byway, stopping along the way for recreation in the water or on land, wildlife spotting, or just hanging out in beautiful places.



No time spent in Idaho would be complete without spending time in its epicenter of art, culture, and industry. Boise sits along its namesake river, and contains many parks, galleries, and museums. Zoo Boise and the Aquarium of Boise are prime attractions for those of all ages who enjoy getting up close with wildlife and learning about the natural world. The Boise River Greenbelt and Barber Park provide acres of pleasant parkland along the banks of the Boise River with paths, trails, birding opportunities, and lots of local animals and plants. The Boise Art Museum opened in the 1930s and has a diverse catalogue of sculptures, modern art, and rotating exhibits on display. Discovery Center Idaho is an interpretive and science center engaging visitors with exhibits explaining technology, science, engineering, and math. The Capital City Public Market and Boise Farmers Market feature vendors from around the state selling their produce, tasty treats, and handmade crafts in downtown Boise, often accompanied by live music. And the Boise Botanical Garden and Kathryn Albertson Park feature beautifully landscaped tranquility in the heart of Boise.


Coeur d’Alene

If you find yourself in Idaho’s Panhandle, then Coeur d’Alene is the best place to experience the arts, culture, and food the region has to offer. There’s the Silverwood Theme Park, Cisco’s Gallery – an antique shop selling Native American and Western antiques, artworks, and artifacts – the Coeur d’Alene Symphony, The Jacklin Arts and Cultural Center, Boardwalk Marina where you can rent boats, kayaks, paddleboards, and jet skis to use on the lake, gondola rides up Silver Mountain Resort, historic mine tours at Crystal Gold Mind Underground Tours, and shopping at The Resort Plaza Shops and Kootenai County Farmers Market. Just outside of town, there’s wineries, ziplines, whitewater rafting, and more nearby.
