This is your Idaho Information Source, Idaho Insider. The door to Idaho is always open, and you are welcome. Come on in! See what Idaho has to offer. Here's a hint: There is more to Idaho than famous potatoes!
On March 4, 1863, President Abraham Lincoln signed the act creating the Idaho Territory. Then, on July 3, 1890, Idaho became the 43rd U.S. State. So...in 2013, Idaho is celebrating 150 years, the State's Sesquicentennial Anniversary.
If you love the outdoors, Idaho is the place for you. There are over 2,000 lakes and reservoirs. Hey, bring your boat! There are miles and miles of heart-pounding rivers for the whitewater rafting experience of a lifetime, and blue-ribbon streams to keep the avid fly fisherman happy and busy.
You'll find mountains, valleys and woodlands, including the one largest wilderness area found in the lower 48 States!
Do you want to backpack or camp? There are thousands of miles of hiking trails for the beginner or veteran, and hundreds of great campgrounds for those who enjoy the luxury of a motorhome and those who simply camp with a tent.
Follow the trail of the Lewis and Clark expedition, or alongside the ruts made by the pioneer wagon trains headed west. Watch wildlife in their natural habitat. You're watching them, they're watching you. Visit towns and areas steeped in the history of Idaho. Some still unchanged.
