Idaho is the libertarian conscience of the west, a state where individualism still means something.
That same ethos translates into government and commerce: in Idaho, it’s never just “business as usual.” Idaho Land for Sale is a way into one of the fastest growing, most exciting regions in America.
From the Columbia Plateau to the Lost River Range, from the Snake River to the Seven Devils Mountains, from the Panhandle to the summit of Borah Peak, Idaho’s craggy, river-strewn landscape includes some of largest wilderness areas in America, home to wolves, grizzly bears, moose, elk, and mountain lions. Bordering on six states and Canada, Idaho boasts the deepest ravine in America (Hell’s Canyon), and a cataract higher than Niagara (Shosone Falls.) Spread over two time zones, no other state can claim both an its own patch of the Rocky Mountains and an active seaport servicing Pacific container ships.
Idaho’s urban areas may not rival those of more populous states, but their charm, industry, and emphasis on culture and education make them among the most livable small cities in the US. Pocatello, Idaho Falls and the other communities of eastern Idaho are centers of the state’s thriving agriculture industry, home to several major military installations and conveniently close to the metro areas of nearby Utah. Boise is a multifaceted city, the state capitol, a college town, and the locus of Idaho’s rapidly growing semiconductor industry. The cities of northern Idaho and the Panhandle include Moscow, a major university center; Coeur d’Alene, adjacent to Washington’s Spokane Valley; and Sandpoint, a major tourist destination. Sun Valley in the Sawtooth National Forest is a world class center for skiing and winter sports. Lewiston, along the Snake River is both the lowest geographical point in the State and a seaport receiving container vessels more than 450 miles inland from the Oregon coast.
Idaho’s climate is as varied as its terrain. Despite its location far from the sea and hard up against the western front of the Rocky Mountains, Idaho’s weather is tempered by the maritime influence of the Pacific Ocean and the Japanese Current. Winters in the lower elevations are generally milder than might be imagined in a State so far to the north. Lewiston’s popularity as a retirement center owes much to average daily temperatures well above freezing even in January and February. Summers in southern Idaho can be hot, but at higher elevations in the north and in the Panhandle, temperatures are generally pleasant. The mountain ranges collect a heavy snow pack during the colder months and the peaks with elevations about 10,000 feet can see near-arctic temperatures during the winter storm season. Winters are drier in the south, wetter in spring and summer.
Idaho’s small population of only a million and a half people makes for a workforce for whom, even in recessionary times, unemployment remains relatively low. The diverse economy provides stability against major economic swings. Historically agriculture and metal mining were the pillars of the Idaho economy. Today the technology sector and the manufacture of semiconductors like computer memory modules account for more than a quarter of the State’s gross revenues. A seaport and a shared border with Canada, with access to Pacific Rim markets via Vancouver, make Idaho competitive internationally. Mining, logging, agriculture, and tourism continue to contribute to Idaho’s growth.
