People come to Idaho for all sorts of reasons. Maybe they have family up here, friends, or maybe they found love and are moving to the Gem State to seal the deal.

...or potatoes for all the "basics" out there. Idaho has a ton to offer, especially this time of year. There is so much to do outdoors and so many hidden gems to visit (or find) that it's no wonder people love to visit.
