From the panhandle of emerald green hillsides, timbered mountains and pristine lakes to central Idaho’s covered jagged peaks and wide open plains of the Snake River Plain, Idaho is ideal for family travelers, outdoor enthusiasts, adventure seekers, or those just looking for a relaxing getaway. Wherever you choose to explore in this magnificent state, you’ll find spectacular scenery, fun things to do and friendly, helpful people. You’ll also find a place that’s unhurried, unspoiled and unassuming.
The proximity to the great outdoors is a lure that brings many to Idaho. A mixture of forested mountains, alpine peaks, wildflower meadows, deep river canyons, and high plains deserts, Idaho offers an abundance of outdoor recreational opportunities – from mountain biking to skiing, from whitewater rafting to backpacking – and scenic vistas around every turn attract over 20 million tourists annually. Even those who live in the state’s larger cities can enjoy fly fishing or a river walk during their lunch hour.
