What’s Your Travel Persona?

Hotels, Travel Tips, What's New — By njensen on April 1, 2012 at 6:26 am

If you like to go on ocean cruises in your travels, I will grant that Idaho may not be your top choice. We’re landlocked. However, I think in general, whatever kind of traveler you are, Idaho can fit the bill.

Luxury resorts are your style? You should make a bee line to Sun Valley, Idaho, where you’ll be pampered in every possible way. Everything here is designed with the high end traveler in mind. The pool, the restaurants, the shopping, and the lodging will all make your stay hassle free. Plus, you can still enjoy all the Idaho outdoors have to offer, from mountains to rivers, skiing, golfing, hiking, biking. And then sleep at night in your big comfortable bed.

Coeur d’Alene resort will also meet your style.  Situated in the beautiful northern mountains on Lake Coeur d’Alene, this lovely resort boasts the famous floating green. Yes, it’s a golf green that floats in the lake. Try hitting a hole in one there!

RVing is more your style? You are in good company. Idaho has so many scenic state parks with plenty of RV spaces, you could spend a month’s worth of vacation time finding all your favorites. Along the Snake River through southern Idaho, you can enjoy Three Island Crossing State Park, Bruneau Dunes State Park, Harriman State Park, and a host of other great sites. Go fishing, boating, hiking, or just enjoy the views. Head to the mountains and the lakes. There’s Ponderosa State Park, Cascade Lake, Winchester, Hells Canyon, the list goes on and on.

Prefer to get away from the world? You can tent camp or backpack through some of the most wild and rugged wilderness in the U.S. The Sawtooth Mountains, the Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness, the White Clouds, and Teton Valley offer so many options your head will spin. Add to that the millions of acres of national forests we have, and you could probably avoid seeing other people for at least a week.

So don’t worry, whatever your travel style, Idaho has what you’re looking for.
