This Idaho County is One of the Least Populated Places in the United States
With such an influx of individuals and families coming to the Gem state some old school native Idahoans are dealing with growing pains and the changes that come along with it all. Even with areas of the state booming, it is nice to know that there are areas of Idaho that are still all about the simple life. Less crowds, less people, more space, more piece and quiet.

A lot of the top 10 were in Alaska, not a big surprise. I lived there for nearly 5 years and there is a lot of open space in that massive state.
