Idaho is a beautiful state with a lot to offer. If you are moving from a big city there will definitely be a culture shock at first because Idaho is more of a rural area that has a slower pace of life to it than most would be used to.

While it might not be on everyone's radar, for many one of the most fun ways you can spend an afternoon is by visiting a museum and learning a little bit about the world or history.
