Being part of the Pacific Northwest, Idaho has two time zones - Pacific and Mountain. So take care of synchronizing you watch when traveling around the state!
The Gem State is one of the least populated US states, most of the locals live closer to the southern border – look at the biggest metro areas of Boise, Nampa, and Meridian. It’s as if they wanted to crawl to Utah or Nevada – or probably because the Forest Service has taken over almost 40% of the state’s territory. On the bright side, nature tourism and forestry bite off a big slice of the local economy. For more businesses, go to agriculture (mostly potatoes), mining (the state has a reputation for its gemstones), and manufacturing (some of the world’s largest factories are here including processed cheese and breweries). By the way, Idaho National Laboratory located in the state is the largest energy facility in the US. While here, visit one of the local schools: Boise State University, Idaho State University, and University of Idaho. It’s hard to tell which of the three campuses offers the most astonishing landscapes.
