In the state of Idaho, there are six defined metropolitan and eight defined micropolitan statistical areas. The metropolitan areas are Boise, Idaho Falls, Coeur d’ Alene, Pocatello, Lewiston, and Logan UT. The micropolitan areas in Idaho are Blackfoot, Twin Falls, Rexburg, Burley, Moscow, Mountain Home, Ontario OR, and Jackson WY. Some of Idaho’s counties are included in metropolitan areas that are from another state.
To decide where specifically you want to find your Idahorealestate, consider both metropolitan and micropolitan areas and decide based on your lifestyle what will work best for you.
Boise Metropolitan Area
The Boise Metropolitan Area is by far the largest area in Idaho in population, and is home to 616,561 people as of the 2010 census. The counties that are included in the Boise Metropolitan area, which is also known as the Treasure Valley, are Ada, Boise, Canyon, Gem, and Owyhee. Ada is home to the capital of Idaho, Boise, which is the most populated city in Idaho, as well as well the third most, Meridian.
The city of Boise is filled with shopping centers, recreational facilities, educational organizations, and performance areas, for nearly all varieties of tastes and interests. Yet, despite its highly developed interior, Boise has retained the charm unique to every Idaho city, pairing upscale features like the Boise Towne Square Mall with outdoor attractions like the Boise Greenbelt.
If you’re not interested in living in Boise, however, there is a wide selection of real estate in the surrounding cities -- and these are close enough to avoid sacrificing the convenience of the city. These communities include Eagle, Kuna, and Meridian.
Idaho Falls Metropolitan Area
Idaho Falls is the second largest area in the state, and 130,374 people call it home according to the 2010 census. Located in Southeastern Idaho, the two major counties in the Idaho Falls Metropolitan Area are Bonneville and Jefferson.
The principal city is, as the name suggests, Idaho Falls. Some elements that add to the community of Idaho Falls is the Snake River Greenbelt, the Tautphaus Park Zoo, an Aquatic Center, and the Museum of Idaho. Real estate in this area includes homes on the historical register in the historic downtown, modern homes, and waterfront homes on the Snake River. Other major cities in the Idaho Falls Metropolitan area include Ammon, Iona, Rigby, and Ucon.
Lewiston Metropolitan Area
Interestingly enough, the Lewiston statistical region includes a Washington county. Composed of the Idaho county of Nez Perce and the Washington county of Washington, there were 60,884 people living in this area at the time of the 2010 census.
Lewiston, the principal city, has many community features, including swimming pools, fishing ponds, public parks, hiking areas, white water rafting, and a renown golf course. Neighborhoods in Lewiston offer an array of choices, with both larger and smaller home lots. Additional cities that are part of the Lewiston Metropolitan area include Culdesac, Lapwai, and Peck.
These are only a few areas in Idaho with real estate for sale. Look into the areas that interest you to find your new home.
What to do in Idaho
No matter what area you live in Idaho, you are never too far from Idaho’s great outdoors. For example, mountains like the Owyhees, the Sawtooths, and the Rocky Mountain range make for excellent places to visit and explore year round. .
There are so many things to do in Idaho mountains, including camping for a weekend or longer. Idaho campgrounds have sites for every level of comfort - or lack thereof. Sagehen Reservoir, for example, has paved campgrounds as well as working bathrooms. Blue Lake, however, requires a mile-long hike to be reached. While camping, you can hike, bike, bird watch, horseback ride, or simply enjoy nature; the possibilities are endless.
For shorter trips to the mountains, you can go fishing for the day or explore nature trails in the area. Boise, for example, has all sorts of trails close to the city in the Boise foothills, including Table Rock and Camel’s Back Park.
Or, you could take advantage of the rivers in Idaho, whether for intense whitewater rafting or floating a calm river. For those who want a more challenging ride with Class V rapids, try riding the North fork of the Payette River. If you want a leisure ride down the river, on the other hand, try the Boise River.
As you look for your next home, consider Idaho and what you can gain from moving to this marvelous state. You can live in a big city like Boise or a small town, or some mix between. Start your search for a home in the Gem State today.
