Welp, all those transplants are telling all their friends about our secrets here in Idaho. Yes, I'm guilty. I always tell my friends and family back home that Idaho is THE. BEST. STATE. EVER.

Now I haven't managed to get anyone to move......yet. But others have! Idaho has officially become the nation's 'fastest growing state.'

According to the Idaho Statesman, the U.S. Census Bureau released today. The data released shows that "between July 2016 and July 2017, Idaho’s population increased 2.2 percent to a total of 1.7 million residents."

Idaho officials are estimating that by 2025, Idaho could have close to 2 million residents.
