Whether you are a resident of Idaho or just have a passing knowledge of the state without ever actually having been in its borders, you are probably well aware that the number one industry of Idaho is agricultural in nature. While this is not the only thing happening in Idaho on an economic or industrial scale and there is even a thriving industry based around the production and distribution of technology, Idaho certainly depends on what it grows in the ground and what people are willing to buy of that growth. You probably already know at least a few of the things that are grown in Idaho. The potato is obviously a big part of what makes Idaho unique and whatever you feel about that, it is the truth. Everyone loves potatoes, and everyone loves the…

There are many things that Idaho holds dear. There is a long and rich history that citizens of Idaho are careful to learn about and present in the many museums that can be found across Idaho. Obviously, Idaho cares a lot about potatoes because of their importance in the Idaho economy and because potatoes just taste really good in a number of different dishes. There is also a spot in Idaho’s heart for nature, and the different mountains and mountain ranges of Idaho are very dear to the state. However, it could be said that even the mountains do not hold a candle to the Idaho rivers. There are many differences between rivers and mountains to the point that they have essentially nothing in common besides being natural formations and there are many…

Humanity has gone through several modes of travel over the years. Right now, the most modern way to travel is by airplane, but we still use plenty of cars and even ships are occasionally used for transportation, but that is mostly just for fun (Lots of products get shipped from place to place but very few people in modern countries use boats as a way to get somewhere far away). Of course, public transportation options such as trains and buses are very popular, but there is one mode of travel that has been used by humanity since the very dawn of time. We do not use this method of travel much anymore because there are better and faster ways, but it is still hanging around, as a curiosity and even sometimes as a real way of getting around. What I am…

“Vacation” is one of the greatest words in the English dictionary. Who doesn’t like the sound of “vacation” and all that it entails? From sunsets at the beach to adventures in just about anywhere in the world—nature or in shopping malls—“vacation” can mean a wide range of things. A vacation is different for each person setting out on one, and each country, and in each state in the U.S., vacationing can be a different experience for everyone. Vacationing in Idaho is no different. It can hold whatever the adventurer wants to experience, as long as it fits within what Idaho is capable of, of course (there isn’t any surfing going on here, for instance, but a lot of adventures in water can be found in the Gem State.

Idaho is famous for its scenic views,…

Weather can make or break whether or not a state is worth living in. If it rains too much or if it is too cold all the time, fewer people are going to want to live there and a handful of people are going to get even more excited to live there. Certain parts of the country are unbearably hot and that heat can even affect the health of a person living under it all the time. Many people like and prefer many different kinds of weather and that means there are going to be parts of the United States that they loved and other parts that they absolutely despise. 

The elephant in the room when it comes to Idaho weather has to be how severe Idaho’s winters may be. Idaho is not as bad as other states and it is not a homogenous region of pure cold when winter…

It has become more and more important over the last couple of decades that people and organizations take a bigger part in making sure the planet keeps on surviving as it always has. We as human beings have made a noticeable impact on the world we live on the surface of and if we want to continue to live on the surface, there are things we need to do to lower and alter that impact. Each person, each company, each city, and each country needs to do its part to help the natural state of the Earth return to equilibrium. With that in mind, you might be wondering what Idaho is doing for its part to solve this problem and you are probably specifically wondering about the Treasure Valley, both because it is statistically likely that if you live in Idaho you…

Idaho is in love with its history. There are museums everywhere all over the state for a hundred different topics about the past and there are tons of historic landmarks that point out where some kind of important or tragic event happened in history. In the same day that you visit the Warhawk Air Museum to learn about aviation history, you can go to the site where the Oregon Trail used to run next to Boise and check out what the American settlers saw as they moved west. However, Idaho also has a special place in its heart for the prehistoric side of Idaho. There are a few places across the state where you can get a really good look at what the world looked like before humans actually started recording information about themselves and the world around…

Fishing is one of the most fun and relaxing activities you can take part in and Idaho is one of the best places you can do it.Before you go out and buy a fishing pole or jump in your car and head for the closest body of water you need to determine what kind of fishing you want to be doing. This can determine a lot about what kind of equipment you need, what kind of license you need to acquire, and how successful you are going to be. I put fishing into one of four different categories, though I know many will want to either simplify, add complexity to, or change these categories for their own uses. First, there is simple lake fishing. You take one big huge body of water and throw your line out into it. There is not so much to this, though there are…
