Idaho is an undiscovered treasure and the last state to be explored by EuroAmericans. It is an ideal place for family travellers, outdoor enthusiasts, adventure seekers, or those just looking for a relaxing getaway. Whichever part of this magnificent state you choose to discover, you'll find spectacular scenery, fun things to do and friendly, helpful people. You'll also find that Idaho is unhurried, unspoiled and unassuming. A diverse state, Idaho is second only to Alaska in the amount of wilderness and whitewater rivers it offers – more than 3,000 miles. Hells Canyon is deeper than the Grand Canyon; Shoshone Falls is higher than Niagara Falls; Bruneau Sand Dunes are larger than the dunes at Death Valley; and Boise is the largest city on the northern tier of states between Minneapolis and Portland.
There is the desolate, yet starkly beautiful Craters of the Moon National Monument, fascinating neighbour of the stunning mountains of the Sawtooth National Recreation Area. Other natural wonders include the Shoshone ice caves, and the huge granite columns at the City of the Rocks Natural Reserve. Whatever you do you will find a visit to Idaho is an unforgettable experience. To discover places to go, things to do, and places to stay visit www.visitidaho.org
