Benefits of Living in Idaho

If you’re from New York and planning to move to Idaho, you’re in for an adventure. Although the journey across the country is a long one, you’ll love your new home when you see what Idaho has to offer. New York and Idaho are beautiful states, but Idaho has a much smaller population and less urban development. Although Boise is the state’s largest city, it functions more like a small town with a relaxed attitude. Transitioning from the north to the west may take a little time, but soon, you’ll be overjoyed that you chose to move to Idaho. To get a better idea of what to expect, you can examine what The Gem State has in store for you.

More Open Spaces, Less Congestion

Although New York has its mountainous regions, Idaho’s landscape is dominated by mountains, and only a small part of the southwest is below 3000 feet in elevation. Idaho is defined by the Rocky Mountains, and its landscapes are an incredible sight. Its largest city Boise is not a typical big city. With wide-open streets and spacious walkways, Boise isn’t a place you’ll encounter traffic congestion or crowded pedestrian routes.

Things move a little slower in the west compared to the northeast. Idaho residents are caring and helpful, but they’re in no rush to multi-task or break a speed record driving to work. If you’re used to a fast-paced lifestyle, you may be thrown off guard briefly, but eventually, you’ll grow to love the relaxed way of life.

Expect a Climate Shock Experience

Idaho has an idyllic average temperature that hovers near 71° F, but its low dew points and humidity can take you by surprise. During the winter, the temperature dips below freezing and sometimes into the single digits. The cold, dry winter season is much different than the weather in the northeast, and it may take you time to become acclimated to the elevation and humidity changes.

The spring, fall and early summer are pleasant, but the low yearly rainfall contributes to the state’s dryness. Although its annual rainfall is low, Idaho has a higher percentage of sunny weather that is apparent when you notice how many residents spend time outside. Outdoor sports and activities are popular due to the state’s mild climate and surrounding natural beauty.

Your Money Will Go Further in Idaho

Your New York savings account will go a long way when you live in Idaho. If you lived in New York City and moved to Boise, your living costs would decrease by 44%. With lower prices in Idaho, you can stretch your paycheck a little further and enjoy a larger property with a reasonable mortgage.

You’ll save money on groceries, taxes, healthcare and transportation when you’re in Idaho. Although the Idaho real estate market was relatively stable, a recent boom in development has raised prices. Many California and New York residents had the same plan as you and left their native states to make a life in Idaho.

Idaho is Experiencing

Growth From Other States

If you feel out of sorts when you reach the state, you’re in good company. Some of your neighbors are likely transplanted northerners or westerners who saw Idaho as a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. The surge of migration from other states has boosted development and improved employment opportunities. Although the state was once primarily known for its potato crops, Idaho is expanding rapidly and adding new industries and jobs at a stunning rate.

Idaho Has a Huge

Industrial and Agricultural Economy

Mining, tourism, lumber and food processing are common industries in Idaho that contribute to the economy, but the state’s largest source of wealth comes from the science and technology sector. This sector accounts for a quarter of Idaho’s revenue, and the company leading the growth, Micron Technology, produces semiconductors that are exported around the world.

The agriculture sector is another primary contributor to Idaho’s GDP, and the potato continues to be the most profitable cash crop. The state is also known for its sunflower, flax, canola and mustard seed production.

Explore the Outdoors

The unforgettable natural beauty of Idaho is one of the state’s main draws, and Idaho natives spend a large part of their lives outdoors. If you enjoy hiking, kayaking, swimming and watersports, Idaho is the home for you. With over 80 mountain ranges to choose from, Idaho is littered with gorgeous scenery.

For an otherworldly experience, you can visit the Craters of the Moon National Monument and Preserve. This ancient lava field encompasses over 600 miles of terrain, and when you visit, you get the feeling you’re away from earth. If you travel to Hell’s Canyon, you can see the country’s deepest river gorge and try fishing, jet-boating or whitewater rafting on the Snake River.

The path of the Snake River created the extraordinary Shoshone Falls. The falls are mightier than those in Niagara, and the best time to see the falls is in spring during its peak flow.

Enjoy the Arts and Entertainment in the West

If you’re worried about missing New York’s art scene, you can rest assured that Idaho has several museums, galleries and even small towns like Ketchum devoted to art production and preservation. In Boise, you can tour the Boise Museum and see diverse works including the abstract sculptor Hilda Morris and the Northwest painter Kenneth Callahan. When visiting Ketchum, you can see the Gail Severn Gallery to examine sculptures from Brad Rude or Bruce Beasley.

The trip from New York to Idaho may be a long one, but you can depend on White Glove Moving for professional assistance with your move to your new home.
