Idaho may not be the first thing that people think of when you mention great places to live, but that is precisely what USA Today thought (http://www.usatoday.com/story/money/business/2015/11/05/24-7-wall-st-best-cities-to-live-in/75177096/). Even though, throughout the years, Idaho has only been known as the potato state, it has been growing in popularity over the last 20 years and people have begun to take notice. In late 2015 USA Today voted Meridian (Idaho’s second largest city and neighbor to Boise) as the best place to live in America. They rated it next to cities in Colorado and Connecticut, giving it the coveted title of #1.
Idahoans probably won’t boast about this, however. Most people from Idaho, especially those from the Boise area, are well known for being some of the nicest people in the Northwest and, while protective of their hometowns, not overly prideful. You see, in Idaho, even the biggest of cities still have the small town charm that people are looking for. You can be in downtown Boise or on the outskirts of Emmett and still be treated like a friend by complete strangers. A lot of people come to Idaho in search of the kind of old-fashioned sense of community and year after year it continues to live up to its reputation. Although, many people come to Idaho for more than just the small town charm. For instance, Idaho is home to some of the most popular outdoor attractions the west has to offer. No matter what you are into, camping, fishing, hunting, exploring, climbing, taking photos, etc., Idaho will have something for you to do. In Idaho, there are acres and acres of forest and desert terrains, mountain and grasslands, and rivers and lakes to rival even the best. In the Treasure Valley alone there are two lakes, miles and miles of trails, two large rivers, and much much more, all for the enjoyment of residents and visitors.
The Treasure Valley is located in the southwestern corner of Idaho, about 50 miles north of Nevada and 50 miles southeast of Oregon. It is the largest metro area in the state and is one of the largest metro areas between Salt Lake and the Tri-Cities. It is only a 5-hour drive from both the Tri-Cities and the Salt Lake Valley, 6 hours from Portland, and 7 hours from Seattle making weekend trips pretty manageable. Boise has an airport as well which makes travel to these destinations (including ones like Los Angeles, Las Vegas, and New York) much easier.
