Idaho produces a third of America’s potatoes, but the state’s got a lot more to offer than just its prolific bounty of spuds. Idaho’s landscape is covered in towering mountain peaks and precipitous valleys. Here Hell’s Canyon dives down 7,900 feet, making it the deepest river gorge in the lower 48 states. At Craters of the Moon National Park you can wander into a lava tube cave or climb a volcano in an eerie scenic landscape molded by surges of volcanic lava and dotted with islands of sagebrush and cinder cones. Idaho’s rivers and lakes welcome white water rafters and fisherman. Canoe Camp Historic Site marks the spot where Lewis and Clark finally reached water after months struggling through the Bitterroot Mountains. Idaho’s crime rate is the lowest in the 11 western states, according to the F.B.I., and its cost of living is the second lowest, with moderate and affordable homes and a strong and diversified economy. Healthcare is considered a growth sector in Idaho. St. Luke’s Hospital in Boise has earned accolades from Thomson Reuters, the National Research Corporation and the National Cancer Institute, and that’s no small potatoes.
