Listen up, outdoor adventurers: Idaho is your ticket to outdoor fun and thrills. This stunning state’s collection of rivers and jagged peaks means residents have more than enough options to stay active – from skiing and snowboarding at Sun Valley, an official training site for the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Nordic ski teams, to whitewater rafting and kayaking on the Salmon River to hiking through one of its 25 state parks.

But activities in the sun are just part of what life in the Gem State has to offer. Idaho boasts a thriving business scene for companies both small and large, and industries like energy, science, technology and agriculture are experiencing great success. Hello, job opportunities!

Idaho is home to top universities, like Boise State, Idaho State and the University of Idaho – not to mention that almost every city here with a population of more than 20,000 has a college or university.

Add to all of this a low cost of living, access to a number of antique shops, must-try restaurants and independent stores, wineries, and numerous opportunities to attend one of the state’s many music festivals, and you’ve got yourself a pretty amazing state to call home.
