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.
