Stargazing in Idaho an important piece of all that is offered in this wonderful state. There are tons of people who are gearing up and heading out into the country to set up telescopes and check out the grand beyond that is often invisible in your daily life. With stargazing, there is something for everyone, and it is the ideal activity to take up for next to no price if you want. You can buy all kinds of expensive and cutting-edge equipment that you call your own, or you can just find a nice dark patch of sky and stare up at a blanket of incredible bright points of light.

When people think of Idaho, they probably are not thinking about great cities with massive populations and lots of traffic problems. That is something that New York and California have going for them, though people associate Idaho with wide-open spaces and a lot of nature, plus the potato. While this is probably one of the biggest draws for Idaho, it is not the only thing going on in the state. There may have been a time where Idaho was just one big empty space with a few towns sprinkled around, but that has not been the case for a while and the state is quickly moving faster and faster towards something else. Boise, Idaho, the capital of the state, is a flourishing and continually growing metropolis with a relatively large population and a lot of…

The Pacific Northwest, or the Northwest for short, is arguably one of the most scenic regions of the United States of America. WIth mountainous vistas, verdant forestry, bountiful rivers and, in fine, just about any piece of wilderness you could imagine or want, the Northwestern United States just about has it all. Idaho, the Gem State of the Northwest, is no exception, but one thing that sets Idaho apart from a good chunk of the Northwest is that, for the most part, the entire state of Idaho experiences all four seasons. This might seem like a no-brainer to most, but for Idahoans, such a fact is, in fact, quite the boon.

With that fact comes a host of possibilities for year-round enjoyment, whether it be something as simple as watching the seasons…

Winter in the Treasure Valley is somewhat like one out of a fairytale. The snow-capped mountains visible in the distance as the towns grow sleepy in the cold. There are great coffee shops and stores to find refuge in if you are wanting to stay near home and just spend a day of spending time indoors and out of the cold. There are great places to go that are indoors and outdoors for you in the winter. There are museums, theaters and more all over Boise. In the Treasure Valley, however, it is not as popular to stay indoors when there is snow on the ground. People like to find little ponds to go ice fishing at or go somewhere to ski, snowboard, and sled. There is a ski resort in Boise called Bogus Basin that is a great place to spend the day skiing or…

There are a great deal of means and ways to get around when you are scheduled to be some place or you want to get across town for some reason or another. Some of the time getting around town might be more fun on a bike and at times can also prove to be a more affordable method of travel.

For the Boise area though there is a ton of room between things which makes traveling by bike more pleasant and more of a reasonable consideration. Travel distances depending on the desired location are generally not too significant to accomplish most common travels such as going…
