Idaho's nickname, the Gem State, comes from the 72 different types of precious and semiprecious stones found there. In many places, Idaho is an unpolished gem: Mountain ranges spread the length of the state overlooking hidden gems that range from wild white-water rivers to steep gorges to highland lakes. Vast areas of wilderness are still untouched by roads.
Backpackers, rock climbers and river runners will be tempted to move to Idaho rather than merely vacation there. Those seeking more leisure in their leisure travel will find lots of plush resorts, including waterside summer getaways, windsurfing lakes, downhill ski and snowboarding mountains, and cross-country ski trails.
