Known as the “Gem State,” Idaho has abundant outdoor recreation opportunities and scenic vistas around every turn attracting over 20 million tourists annually. Idaho is home to hundreds of miles of mountain biking trails and more whitewater rafting than any other state. There are mountains and sand dunes to climb, lakes to fish, 18 ski resorts for winter and summer fun as well as both indoor and outdoor water parks. And while much of Idaho is natural scenery and wilderness, the cities of Boise, Nampa, Idaho Falls and Salt Lake City (just an hour south of the border in Utah) offer plenty of urban excitement and amenities. You’ll also find a great business climate here. Idaho was ranked #3 by the Bureau of Labor for Highest Projected Percentage Job Growth for 2008-2018.
