15 Reasons Why You Should Never, Ever Move To Idaho

Oh, precious, beautiful Idaho–you’ll forever have my heart. Often overlooked as a scenic and unique travel destination, repeatedly mistaken for Iowa, and even the victim of your own delicious, world-famous potato reputation, you’re quite the special state. But with your extreme isolation and never-ending challenges at the hands of Mother Nature and your identity crisis as an up-and-coming state that doesn’t want to up-and-come because that means people… it takes an equally special type of person to live within your panhandled borders.

Of course we, as Idahoans, wouldn’t live here if we didn’t have the grit and determination to handle everything that this incredible state offers and presents. But as you’ll see, it’s not all that easy…

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: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

Please, don’t take your chances. Leave the Idaho life to those who can handle it!
