It’s time for you to set aside work and venture into the Northwestern region of the United States. You’ve probably heard about Idaho’s abundant potato population, but did you know that almost every type of gemstone has been found within its borders? The beautiful scenery of lakes, mountains, streams, and rivers will be at your fingertips with a stay at an Idaho resort.
Begin your Idaho trip in the southwest portion of the state by reserving a Boise hotel room. Head farther south for a whitewater rafting adventure down the Jarbidge River with Class III and IV rapids. Want something less bumpy? Drive up north to Coeur d’Alene and enjoy great fishing in the St. Joe River, where you can catch and eat trout, chinook, and Kokanee salmon. For additional watery fun, visit Lake Coeur d’ Alene and enjoy tubing, water skiing, and wakeboarding. The local golf course even has an island green if you’re an ace with a 7-iron.
Do you prefer to travel in the winter for the holidays? Idaho has you covered. Smack in the center of the state is one of the premier skiing destinations in the country: Bald Mountain at Sun Valley. The area has over 3,000 vertical feet and a dazzling amount of pitch-terrain, creating a haven for ski bums and winter vacationers. After a day of skiing the fall line, head to the nearby town of Ketchum and visit the mountain lodge where Ernest Hemingway completed his final works. Some of the better resorts in Idaho are located in the area, ensuring quick access to all kinds of winter activities.
