Why is Idaho perfect for my wedding?
It’s no secret that people are talking about Idaho. In fact, the state has been named to several prestigious lists and annual surveys for best places to live in recent years – making it a popular destination among those who want an affordable lifestyle with plenty of opportunities at their fingertips! As well as those couple who seek adventure for that one of a kind wedding celebration right outside their local state!
Uniquely, with stunning mountain ranges, Craters of the Moon National Monument and Preserve is a great place for stargazing here at Idaho. In 2018, it achieved international dark sky park status from The International Dark Sky Association! In an effort to provide the most optimal viewing experience possible, Craters has installed new lighting that faces down instead of up. This will allow guests at Star Parties and avid astronomy fans alike a chance for peak star gazing without being distracted by lights in their field of vision.
It’s a wonder to see the Shoshone Falls in person. The waterfall is higher than Niagara, and when you have your eyes on this powerful force that can carve through stone with ease – it feels almost insurmountable! In fact, the majestic Shoshone Falls is at its most outstanding in the spring and early summer, when snowmelt sends water rushing down at up to 12,000 cubic feet per second. On the contrary, the City of Rocks National Reserve is a place where the only sound you’ll hear are your hands on rock climbing holds as they grip tightly to granite spires. The emigrants traveling along California Trail called this area “the silent city,” because there aren’t any buildings here but rather towering monoliths begging for attention in an otherwise quiet environment.
Have you ever wondered how it is possible to be surrounded by nature and not enjoy its beauty? In Idaho, hot springs are a part of life. The state, especially the southern half which contains many volcanic rocks, has more than a hundred of natural mineral pools that provide soothing waters for those who visit them! For those who love to explore and relax in the great outdoors, there is no better destination than these pristine springs. They’ve also been enjoyed by generations of enthusiasts since they were first discovered centuries ago. So, let this be your next adventure!
For those looking for a place to explore, Idaho is the perfect destination. The Snake River and its tributaries create endless opportunities for canoeing or kayaking adventure in this southern state that flows right alongside it. Looking to take the waterslide? Try rafting on Murtaugh stretch of Snake River or enjoy a lazy afternoon meandering around Ritter Island with a stand-up paddleboard.
Notably, step into the early 1900s in Rupert, where a classic town square, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, is full of charm and flanked by buildings. Walk inside one these historic homes for an experience like no other!
