We will be on our honeymoon the second week of December in Cascade, Idaho. I was curious to see what winter attractions there were for us to plan to do. We both love the outdoors, fishing, skiing & any chance to snap some beautiful scenic photographs. I was also curious if there were any hot springs around that would even be open at the time or anything unique for us to plan. Any suggestions for us Texans would be appreciated to help prepare us with packing & planning! Thank You!
Hi!! My boyfriend and I are coming to Idaho end of August for 7 days and we need some friendly advise with creating our itinerary. Basically we want to HIKE. We are very outdoorsy and fit so any beautiful long hikes you could recommend. We are also wanting to do a 3 day whitewater rafting tour and visit many (natural) hot springs. Accommodation advise would be SO appreciated. Again, we are looking for beautiful rustic cabins, no resorts. We do not mind spending the $$ as long as it is quality.
I just moved with my family from California to Twin Falls, and my daughter's birthday is comming up. She is used to places like Disneyland and such, but theres nothing like that here. I know there's not really anything like Disneyland here, but do you have any ideas on what she and her friends could do? Is there anyplace like a Boomers or something? Any advice is appreciated! Thank you!
Hi,We are looking for accomodation near to Franklin Park Drive.We would rather be out of the central city area and close to friends who live there. Any ideas for about May?? Middle price range.
I'm moving with my family to TF in a few months. We are coming from Europe(Spain), and I would like to know where would be a nice place to buy(rent) a house. I mean some nice neighbourhood for family with kids. Thank you.
I want to travel from Boise to Yellowstone (return) in May - not keen on driving. Are there any bus trips or other organised tours in that area?
Hasanone got any ideas.
Sam from England here! This summer we planning on driving up from Tahoe to the Boise/Sawtooth area. This will be part of a longer road trip (camping, hiking and sightseeing) starting in San Francisco and spending time in the Sierra Nevada (probably Mammoth Lakes Basin), Lake Tahoe etc. We want to spend a night in Boise and then up to four nights or so camping and day hiking in the Sawtooth. My question is: can anyone recommend a nice campground (we prefer quiet/non-commercial/scenic) which would A) make a good base for some of the best hikes in the area (we like to do long, serious hikes - up to 20 miles) and are very experienced) B) not be too far from civilization if we want a decent choise of groceries to stock up on, a coffee shop or even to eat out. I was thinking maybe somewhere near Ketchum as Stanley looks very small but I would love some advice from anyone who knows the area. Thanks, Sam
My fiance and I are looking into moving to Boise, Idaho. Neither of us have ever been there. We are looking at houses on rentalhouses.com right now, but we want to know which neighborhoods are nice places to live in and which ones we should avoid. We love the outdoors so any proximity to parks or Boise's greenbelt would be great.
Also, I've read that Boise has a very Pacific Northwest feel to it... is this true? Or is it more like a rocky mountain town along the lines of Casper, Wyoming or Denver, Colorado? I'll be flying in for a job interview a week from today...any places I should check out while I'm there? Any advice you can offer me would be much appreciated. Thanks!
I am traveling from Salt Lake City to Yellowstone Park on I20. I want to break up the trip as I don't like to drive more than 4 hours. I am looking for a quaint inn or B&B in the vicinity of Idaho Falls. Doesn't need to be in IF but I give that place as a reference as it seems half-way.
Thanks in advance for the help!
looking for any info on people who live in idaho and live in smaller towns with hospitals.
Anyone know of a Luggage storage at or near the main Boise Airport that could hold Luggage for a 24 hour time period? Something like even a hotel that might do it? It seems the actual Airport doesn't have anything according to their website. Just curiouse.
How long does it take to float the river? We are thinking of coming over for a day with kids 8-13. How should we plan our day? We want to do slides/pool, float and a good place for lunch! Thanks!
What is worth stopping to do and/or see along this route? Cool places to stay? Ive heard you can rent a room in Lava Hot Springs and the springs actually flow through your room??? Suggestions please.
Dear fellow VTs,
Does anyone know about this place in Idaho? How far is it from Boise, the main city in Idaho state?
Is there still a restaraunt at the Marina at the mouth to the Spokane River? I haven't been there since like the very early 80's when I was like 11 or 12.
In 9 years time - 21st August, 2017, - there will be a total eclipse of the sun over the middle of the USA and I plan to see it!
I am trying to decide which location to visit for this and Idaho is a strong contender at the moment.
I haven't decided on a town to stay in that day - I guess the geography varies and so I need to know what the weather and cloud conditions are likely to be that day.
Can anyone help?
a) Is Idaho a good choice for the best chance of a clear sky?
b) Which town or place is best avoided or best considered?
My family and I are excited to visit Sun Valley in mid July. I have a 3 year old, 5 year old, and 7 year old traveling with my wife, and I and we are looking for fun and adventures in your region.

Hi - I am planning a trip to Idaho in August in advance of a similar trip in August 2017 for the Solar Eclipse.
I want to check-out a location that can be as near as possible guaranteed clear skies.
Does anyone know whether Twin Falls - or Idaho in general- is a safe bet?
This is important to me as it is liely to be my last ever opportunity to see a total eclipse of the sun!
I am a little out of my element here. Usually I am planning a vacation for my buddies and myself, but this time my family recruited me to plan one for them. They are looking for a nice resort/condo set up, with a mountain/forested setting, and lots of outdoor activities. Preferably with a lake that allows some type of recreation (boating, fishing, etc). We will have a large group... 12-22 people. If anyone could offer any suggestions I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks!
Is it worth a detour?
My husband and I are originally from Alaska and transplanted to Texas four years ago. We are now wanting to head back to the North West and thinking of moving to Spokane or the Coeur d'Alene area?
We are really into the outdoors... snowboarding, hiking, biking, camping, fishing... all that good stuff. We are about to start a family, and my parents want to relocate with us. We are not really into night life too much, but enjoy going out every now and then and we also love local festivals and all that fun stuff.
What we're trying to get is more information about the areas. We really want to visit to help make up our minds, but don't know what parts of town to check out and such. We are not having much luck with realtors helping us, so I figure this is a good place to check!! We want to know about good parts of town and such!!
Any and all help is greatly appreciated!! "Thank you" in advance!!
Well, I think my hubby's ex-wife is finally done ruining our summer vacation plans and, with that in mind, we are trying to plan a vacation (for the third time!) for the last 2 weeks of August.
We have made reservations at Farragut State Park for Aug 21 to 24, and will be visiting Silverwood during 2 of those days. The rest of vacation is still open and all suggestions are welcomed and greatly appreciated.
We will travel south into US at either Montana or Idaho crossing on August 20th. Will be in Farragut by late afternoon on the 21st, and have to be back in Canada (in either BC or Alberta) by Sept 1st or 2nd.
We have considered spending some time exploring in the Priest River and/or CDA areas, as well as possibly heading west into Washington. We want to spend at least 8 days south of the border, for our maximum duty-free allowances. (We will definitely spend at least one day in Sandpoint!)
We are outdoorsy sorts, travelling in our RV with our dog, and we will have 2- 13 year olds in tow, one boy & one girl. We love great scenery, friendly people, good food, moderate hikes (hubby is a trucker - can't make him walk too far!), unique places, shopping, camping, etc.....
I am also wondering about fire bans in the area. Our mountain areas are currently tinder-dry and most of eastern BC is on fire, so we have extreme fire restrictions right now. A lot of the provincial recreation areas are closed altogether. I like to do a lot of cooking over a fire, so I would like to know in advance whether that will be an option, since it will determine what type of foods I pack.
Thanks in advance for your time & input!
My friends and I are driving from Park City, UT up to Jackson, WY.
1. Does anyone have any suggestions for things to see on the way? Or any good/beautiful places to stop to eat?
2. Several people have told me that Sun Valley is great, so on our way back we were going to drive over to Sun Valley. We would only be able to spend 1.5 days there. It's a bit out of our way, and i was wondering if it's worth it or if there's somewhere more on the way that's just as pretty/fun?
3. Does anyone have suggestions on what to see driving from Jackson to Sun Valley, and then from Sun Valley to Park City?
Thanks so much!!
We have a free afternoon in Coeur D'Alene and are considering either going to Wild Water outdoor water slides or the Raptor Reef indoor park. Which would be more enjoyable for the kids, ages 3, 5, 12, and 15? Any other suggestions for an active adventure for the kids for the afternoon?
We'd like to visit Western Idaho for the first time. We'll probably fly into Boise, rent a car and make our way north to Coeur d 'Alene or perhaps even Sandpoint. We don't want to rush around more than we need to, but are looking for suggestions on some must-see places. We'd like to get a nice mix of driving, hiking, doing a day rapids trip and seeing a few towns/cities. Also, when heading back to Boise, should we stay on the west side of the state, or is it worth taking Rt 90 from CDE to Missoula and then taking Rt 93 south and heading back to Boise that way. It looks pretty sparsely populated on this route, but perhaps the scenery makes up for it??
Hello! I am planning a week long trip to Boise in June. I would like to fit in a 2 day trip to Yellowstone National Park. I have figured out that it would be approx a 9 hour road trip to the park. In order to save time (and unfortunately probably miss a lot of scenic sites along the way) I have been wondering if they are flights available to the area and has anyone ever used them or have suggestions where I can get information? I haven't been able to find anything online. Thanks!
I plan to fly to Boise in late May and would like to drive to West Yellowstone. Can anyone please tell me the approximate driving time it will take. Also, does anyone have any recommendations on stops on the way I should make to see the great state of Idaho?
I have to visit Idaho for Christmas 2008. I'll be flying from the UK so want to make it worth my while. Does anyone have any tips of places I could fly on to that are actually worth visiting?
We are planning to visit McCall for the Winter Festival for the first time, and would like some information on the snowmobiles. Are they available for rentals and how much the rental fee is. Any other information concerning activities that are available would be greatly appreciated.
