Moving to Idaho: Idaho Offers Mountains, Forests, Lakes, Rivers, and Desert -- And Affordable Housing

What areas of Idaho have the best weather? What are the best places to live in Idaho? What cities in Idaho have the best public schools, safe communities, and quality of life?

Idaho Has it All

Skiing and snowboarding in top notch resorts like Sun Valley. Camping, Fishing, and hiking in the northern forests, rivers, and large, beautiful lakes like Lake Coeur d'Alene and Lake Pend Oreille. Gorgeous summers.

Idaho has a climate influenced by weather patterns from the Pacific Ocean, however much of the state's precipitation comes down in the northern regions, with the southern portions of the state much drier, with a lot of desert. If you're moving to Idaho for an increase in sunshine, you'll get it living in cities like Boise, Pocatello, or Idaho Falls.

NeighborhoodScout.com ranks the following as the best school districts in Idaho:

1) Moscow
2) Genesee
3) Malad City
4) McCall
5) Kimberly
6) Cascade
7) Athol
8) Cottonwood
9) Council
10) Hollister

Best Places to Live in Idaho

Most of the people who have moved to a smaller town in Idaho, and like where they live, are likely to gush about the geography. Searching forums you'll read about people who love towns like Sun Valley, Ketchum, and Hailey. They'll talk about the sun shine and the Big Wood River that gives so much life to the open country of Blaine County. In the late spring snow melt from the jagged peaks of the Sawtooth Mountains brings the river to a raging torrent -- a sight to see. Other towns like Moscow and Eagle offer social and geographical scenes that have their own unique appeal -- Eagle for it's small town way of life; Moscow for it's arts and more modern amenities likes bike trails.

When it comes to things to do in the evening, Boise has the night scene, the diversity of restaurants, and typically clear nights, due to Boise's location in the Idaho high desert and that it gets plenty of annual sunshine. One warning about Boise: You better like hot weather in the summer. Temperatures can be in the 90s and even 100s for four weeks at a time, according to people who've been there. Low humidity though means people moving to Boise from other parts of the nation with high humidity like South Texas or the southern states, will find that it doesn't feel as hot, since it's a "dry" heat.

Best Idaho Mover

This is where we ask our readers to pause for a moment, and consider what nationwide mover they want to use to move to Idaho? If you live in the state of Idaho, and simply relocating elsewhere in the state, a reputable Idaho mover is a necessity at some point. (Since you're on a website dedicated to interstate moving, you will see the occasional plug here for our interstate moving services.)

Idaho Economy

Manufacturing and agriculture are two important sector's of Idaho economy. Electronics and computer equipment, lumber, chemicals, and processed foods are leading items in manufacturing. Cattle, dairy, and crops like potatoes, hay, wheat, peas, beans and sugar beets are major items farmed.

Tourism is also a popular sector in the Idaho economy. Major resorts like Sun Valley bring visitors from across the U.S. including celebrities. The wide range of hunting, fishing, hiking and camping found in various regions of Idaho also attract tourists.

Finally, there's also mining. Idaho mining produces phosphates, gold, silver, lead, zinc and several other minerals.

Safest Cities

Of all the western states, the FBI reports that Idaho has the least amount of crime. NeighborhoodScout.com ranks the following cities as the top ten safest cities Idaho:

1) Aberdeen
2) Island Park
3) Ririe
4) Roberts
5) Mountain Home Air Force Base
6) Melba
7) Inkom
8) Sugar City
9) McCammon
10) Firth

Dangerous Cities

Homedale, Nampa, Caldwell, and Garden City have a higher rate of crime than Boise. Most Idaho crime though is non-life threatening, with an annual low rate of murders. Overall, Idaho is a safe state to live, work, and raise a family than other states in the U.S.

Best City for Recreation in Idaho

National Geographic Adventure referred to Boise, Idaho as part of the "real West", considering it's location at the base of the Rocky Mountains and proximity to outdoor recreation like kayaking, hiking trails, fishing, hunting, and other activities.

Then on the other end of the state is Idaho Falls, near national parks like Craters of the Moon, Grand Teton, and of course the majestic Yellowstone.

In the northern panhandle cities like Sandpoint, Idaho offer skiing / snowboarding and ice fishing in the winter months, and in the spring and summer fun on the lakes, horseback riding, and plenty of rafting, backpacking, and camping.
