Here in Idaho, we don’t see a lot of action. The slow, stable pace of Idaho living is part of what makes this state such a great place to live. Idahoans treasure the quiet. It’s part of who we are. However, exciting things do happen in the Gem State from time to time. The small town featured here took a truly unique event, a bank robbery by one of the worlds most infamous criminals, and memorialized it as one of the towns main attractions.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:
