  2. River Welker

    Pff this is idaho for ya. I mean the places where NOBODY lives :p
    -Idahoan approved-

    Im sorry to all you native Idahoans who dont live in Boise right now, but it is no longer the city it use to be. The mom and pop businesses have all been bought by Hipster snobs from other places, who employ the rich college kids that are just as hipster and snobby. The kind country folk attitude has become one of wealthy republicans and suburbanites trying to act like country folks. To those of us that are not one of these, this place has become incredibly unwelcoming and cold. Yeah, the country is beautiful… But this is not Idaho. Don’t move here if you’re looking for anything else. I can’t wait to get out of this State. Idaho use to be a great place… Until the rest of the world came here.

    Idaho is just too cold for me. I lived there one year and almost froze to death! It’s full of Mormons and tea party folks too who have different views! They believe they never should pay taxes in
    Any way! They don’t make much money and don’t want to share! The scenery is beautiful of course, and that’s what Idaho is all about!

  5. Ginny Alderson

    It sure makes me lonesome for that beauty after living there over 30 years. It is the most beautiful state. Thanks for sending it

  6. Matthew Ratelle

    Where are the pictures of Coeur D’ Alene!? Best part of the state in my opinion! I love my North Idaho!!!

  7. Andrea Lynn

    The best place to live is Idaho. I was born there up untill I was 5 years old. And still love it. I have a book out on
    my life. ( The Cry that no one heard, Andrea Lynn ) Idaho is the most beautiful state that I have every lived in.

    Well, well. Let me tell readers what Idaho is really like, to quench the above naysayers. Idaho is a gorgeous state. Yes, the people here are passionate about their politics but at the end of the day if we can’t shake hands then that means we were not even friends to begin with. We can do just about any form of outdoor sport out our front doors. We take incredible photos of our neighborhoods and even more photos on road trips. We have more choices in churches or practices theta you can imagine, and all are accepted. We have diversity in our major metro areas. We are hard working people and yes, some of us are hipsters. Shoot, being hip is fun in my late 50’s! I love to get a chuckle from not only my clients but from strangers. We have a strong ag industry and an even stronger tech industry. All of the photos in this post barely scratch the surface of the beauty of Idaho. At the end of the day, we are proud to be Idahoans.

    Great pictures of Idaho

  10. Antony

    We were looking to move to a new home safer and more like home. We live in Tennessee now born and raised country family with values.. never seen in any of the post if the schools are good there. Or what shopping , traffic is like. I’m not a city girl and scared to move away from home. Thanks for sharing any positive and negative information to me ..

  12. Scott Barger

    Im 38 years old have raised 2 great kids, my youngest is 17 years old. We live in a small logging community, Sheridan Oregon. It was a logging community 20 years ago. Im a trapper, hunter, fisherman in my spare time anyway. My real job is at a steel mill in Mcminnville Oregon. Im a journeyman Millwright and have worked there for 12 years. Im not happy live in Oregon now. California ways have came to our small town. This brought out No Traspassing signs on every other fence post.
    My son will be graduating school in a year. Im trying to read and prepare for a life changing experience. I want to move up to northern Idaho and buy a little land, and start living off the grid as much as possible. Oregon isn’t what it was when I was growing up.

  13. Martha
