Idaho lies in the Pacific Northwest and Mountain regions of the USA.

It is a state of stunning beauty, unique landforms and history, and epic outdoor adventures.

In Idaho, we discovered one of our favorite road trip experiences, the most STUNNING hot springs, our favorite waterfall in the USA, one of our favorite lakes and the BEST horse-riding experience we've had and we had our first family ski trip!

What a hidden gem of a state!

Here are our tip things to do in Idaho, fun attractions, road trip ideas and more.

Be sure to check all of our USA travel tips, as we’ve been exploring the country in-depth for the past year on short breaks, getaways, road trips, and a year long RV trip of the American West.

"We had amazing time in Idaho. Thank you to all your information. We won't see all of it if I didn't read your post about Idaho.
We did your recommended horseback riding, found your Hot Springs and did the hiking to Goldbug Hot Spring and stopped by Craters of the Moon National Monument. Everything Idaho was amazing."




FEATURED VIDEO: Redfish Lake, Idaho

OMG! We discover one of our favorite lakes in the USA: Redfish Lake near Stanley Idaho. It's a spectacular lake for swimming, kayaking, supping, hiking and guided commentary lake cruises. But wait - you can also go horse riding with the spectacular Sawtooth Mountain Ranges in the background and views of Redfish Lake and Little Redfish Lake.


The West USA Mountain States includes the states of Colorado, Idaho, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Wyoming. Idaho is often classified as a Pacific Northwest State as well.

Some include Utah and Nevada, but we have included them in our Southwest USA region.


Travel has been the focus of our life since 1997 - intentionally.

We don't plan on stopping that. We now have a base in Raleigh, NC - after being granted a Green Card for our extraordinary ability in the art of travel blogging.

We will continue to explore more of the US but also intend on traveling further abroad - Europe, South East Asia and Central and South America.

We can't wait to share more of our favorites as we experience them.
