Idaho State Capitol

Idaho is a mountainous state in the northwestern United States. It has many national parks, reserves, monuments, and historic sites, such as Yellowstone National Park, the Oregon National Historic Trail, and the Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail. Many Native American artifacts have been found in Idaho, including some of the oldest dated artifacts in North America. Apart from its tourism industry, Idaho is largely agricultural. Nearly a third of all potatoes grown in the United States are from Idaho.

Boise is the capital and the most populous city in Idaho. The city began as a fort to protect travelers moving west to settle Oregon in the early 19th century. Historic sites, including former military buildings and museums, are open to the public for tours. Boise is also home to the second-largest ethnic Basque community in the United States. Downtown Boise hosts a large Basque festival every five years and includes a vibrant section known as “Basque Block.”

Real estate in Idaho includes historic neighborhoods with tree-lined streets, upscale homes in the Boise foothills, secluded mountainside homes and more. The Idaho real estate market provides something for everyone, from rural farmland to urban abodes.
