Idaho Just Appeared On A National List We Never Ever Expected To Make

Depending on your perspective, topping the charts can either be a blessing or curse. But when it comes to tourism… I think we all have a pretty good idea of which side of the spectrum the industry falls on! Idaho has recently become the country’s latest and hottest destination (we’re one of the top states for incoming population growth), and it seems like we keep making every “best” list in the country for our unique culture and beautiful, overlooked location. But the world seems to have taken notice.

The Gem State’s latest achievement is a well-known annual list of the hottest international travel destinations. And Idaho is the only US state to have made the list, which is quite the accolade, if you think about it!

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:
