Things You Should Know About Idaho

As you consider moving to Idaho, it is likely that you have a few questions concerning what life is like in the Gem State. After all, you should always have all of the facts before you make your final decision. Today, Poseidon Moving and Storage would like to help you decide whether or not Idaho is the right place for you. That’s why we have compiled a list of the various reasons you should consider moving to Idaho. Let’s take a closer look.

Idaho has a population of nearly 2 million people and is best known as the place for people to move if they want access to a robust economy and stunning scenery. While Idaho may not necessarily be the place for you if you are looking for big-city living, it is certainly a place to consider if you value plenty of time spent outdoors and home ownership.

Idaho earned its nickname of the Gem State due to its scenic landscape and abundance of natural resources. Here, natural resources such as lumber, lead, and zinc all contribute to the state’s economy. There are, of course, literal gems as well. Gemstones such as jasper, jade, opal, and tourmaline can all be mined in Idaho. These resources contribute to Idaho’s robust

Home ownership is also a possibility in Idaho. According to Census data, Idaho’s homeownership rate is the 12th highest in the nation. Given the state’s low population density, it is easy to imagine why most Idaho residents are homeowners in single-family homes rather than multi-family dwellings. If you are tired of renting and want to move somewhere where home ownership is a possibility, look no further than Idaho.

Popular Towns to Visit in Idaho

Now that you know more about what life is like in Idaho overall, it’s time to learn a bit more about the most popular towns to visit in Idaho. For this section, we will be focusing primarily on what is, by far, one of the most popular towns to visit and live in Idaho- Boise.

The first thing that can be said about Boise, and Idaho in general, is how safe the town is. In fact, the only place ranked as a more safe town in the West is Utah. In 2017, Boise was voted number 8 on the safest cities in the world by MSN. With a safety index of 82.29, this means that Boise is a place where kids can safely walk home from school without worry and some residents even leave their front doors unlocked. If safety is a key concern for you, there are few better towns in the country to call home.

So why else is Boise considered one of the best places to live in Idaho? Aside from safety, Boise is also an outdoor lover’s dream. Located just west of the Rocky Mountains and just north of the Great Basin deserts, Boise offers beautiful landscapes for hiking, cycling, skiing, and whitewater rafting. The Boise River also snakes directly through the city and, with the warm summertime temperatures, makes for the perfect spot to enjoy river floating.

Finally, another great reason to move to Boise, Idaho is found in the fact that it is home to a thriving job market. Boasting an unemployment rate of just 2.9 percent, 1.5 percent lower than the national average, Boise was recently praised by the Wall Street Journal as having one of the nation’s fastest-growing job markets. Much of this success can be attributed to the state’s growing technology presence. Despite such a large tech market, Boise’s leading industries for jobs still remain the healthcare and hospitality sectors. Many Boise residents are employed by St. Alphonsus Health Systems and St. Luke’s Health System.

As a final note, the most popular neighborhoods to live in within Boise include Southeast Boise, South Boise Village, Downtown, and Boise Bench. Each of these neighborhoods offers something unique for homeowners and it is likely that you’ll find the perfect home for you and your family in one of these popular Boise neighborhoods.

Long Distance Moving Tips

Now that you have a better idea of what life is like in Idaho, you may feel better prepared to make your decision about moving there. If so, our long distance movers have a few long distance moving tips that you should consider. For one, we highly recommend creating an inventory list as you begin preparing to move to Idaho. This will not only make it much easier for your chosen moving company to give you a reliable quote on the cost of their moving services but it will also make it easier for you to keep track of all your household belongings during the moving process.

Secondly, our long distance movers also recommend making sure that all of your items are packed properly when moving to Idaho. Depending on where you are moving there from within the United States, it is possible that you may have a long road ahead of you. It is good to make sure that your items are packed for the long haul, securely and properly. Make sure all of your items are well-cushioned and protected from any unintended bumps along the road. When booking with Poseidon Moving and Storage, you can rest assured that your items will be packed properly and transported safely!
