  • Idaho is all about the outdoors. You aren't traveling here to see the tall skyscrapers, the immense art collections, the biggest bridges. You come to Idaho to be outdoors. And there are all kinds of activities you can do. Boat, fish, swim, hike, camp, run, ski, and play.

    These top ten outdoor activities give you a taste of the many choices you have in Idaho's giant outdoor playground. Ski at Bogus Basin, hike Ridge to Rivers Trails, mountain bike in Hulls Gulch, launch on a river raft trip from Barber Park. The Boise National Forest is so huge, with so many things to do, you'll need an entire vacation just for that. Walk and relax among the formal gardens at the Idaho Botanical Garden, observe the animals in Deer Flat Wildlife Refuge, spend an evening cheering for the Boise Hawks-the boys of summer-or simply scrounge for goodies at the Capital City Public Market. Finish it all off with a soothing soak at Gold Fork Hot Springs.
