Idaho is becoming a popular destination for those looking to relocate, especially during the Covid-19 pandemic. According to Business Insider, 194% more people moved into the state than out since March 2020.

The state’s capital Boise was named the #1 Best Place to Live in 2019 by Livability due to its tight-knit community, an increasing number of job opportunities, easy access to the outdoors, and maybe most importantly, low cost of living. It’s also one of the safest cities in the world, suitable for families of all walks of life.

Idaho’s population is rapidly growing, which has caused rapid growth in development within the state.

The state’s nature is not as various as that which Californians are used to, but it still has deserts, thick forests and beautiful mountains to explore. Idaho is a great place for outdoor enthusiasts, and many people who live there are involved in outdoor recreational activities, including rafting, kayaking, hiking, fishing, skiing and snowboarding.

Of the 11 Western states that Pink can move you to, Idaho has the lowest cost of living. The average cost of living in Idaho is even 5% lower than the national average. The median home price in Boise is about $350,000 compared to $850,000 in Los Angeles and $1.3 million in San Francisco. The average rent of a one-bedroom apartment in Idaho is $570 – which can be astonishing to people relocating from the Golden State.

A Look at Some of the Best Cities in Idaho:

Boise: One of the fastest-growing cities in the U.S., Boise is a great option for people looking to leave a big city. The city’s growing tech industry creates a lot of career opportunity and the ease of access into nature is a draw for a lot of people. Residents can easily drive to the mountains for camping, hiking or fishing, or can easily drive to Portland (6 hours) or Seattle (7.5 hours) for weekend trips away.

The pace of life is slower in Boise, but that doesn’t mean there’s a lack of things to do there. Boise is known for being a green city with numerous parks and having a great art and theatre scene, as well as being great for sports fans since it’s the home of the Boise State Broncos.

Idaho Falls: The second largest city in Idaho has been named as one of the 100 best cities to live in the country. With a focus on agriculture, retail, entertainment and medicine, the city is great for job seekers. Idaho Falls has a miles-long recreational green belt along the Snake River that attracts residents and visitors alike.

Twin Falls: A regional center in south-central Idaho, Twin Falls is home to the College of Southern Idaho. Another Idaho city with high-quality parks, Twin Falls has been a destination for many major retail outlets.

Idaho is home to many more unique cities, including Moscow on the Washington state border, Coeur d’Alene, a.k.a. “Lake City,” Nampa, Pocatello, Meridian and more. There is a city for everyone in Idaho – and you can almost guarantee that city is growing.
