Has your career taken you to a point where you desire somewhere to truly thrive without the hustle and bustle of vastly more competitive regions? Idaho has everything and then some—the state of Idaho is located across the northwestern United States, with its substantially large land area giving rise to something of a sparsely populated population-- Idaho's terrain and culture emphasize a more natural and arguably rural identity, with Idaho residents and citizens expecting to stake out work in one of many industries that have found a home in a state that has learned to take advantage of its natural benefits to create subsisting and long standing economic contributions to the state's gross domestic product.
You won't need to worry about thriving on the state's rich culture and level of local identity, either—an interesting fact that those outside of the loop on Idaho might not know is that the state is historically and modernly renowned as the home of unique and hard to find gems-- essentially, every single type of gemstone in existence has been found in Idaho, in one form or another. Idaho is even the natural home to a considerable number of star garnets-- a staggeringly rare type of gem stone thought historically to only be found in India –it remains one of two places in the world where these star garnets can be found, with Idaho's propensity for housing such incredible gems being something of an anomaly (and a mystery for geologists, to an extent). This incredibly unique tendency of housing rare gemstones has earned the state the official nickname as “the Gem State,” which a more humorous colloquial nickname being the Potato State, due largely in part to its incredibly wide reaching and long standing agricultural history as a distributor of the crop.
Regardless of your needs, Idaho most likely houses a perfect home city for you—Boise serves as the largest city across the state of Idaho, while also serving as its state capital-- the Boise metropolitan area accounts for what is arguably the majority of Idaho's population count –ranked at 39th overall across the United States, Idaho does not feature the largest population around, but its population of over 1,600,000 citizens spans far and wide across the expansive state, and you can expect to find at least some people pretty much anywhere you go. This may largely be due in part to the state's history as an agricultural powerhouse of the United States' early years, giving rise to advantageous settlement in less densely populated areas as these early citizens enjoyed taking advantage of land and natural resources around them to their agricultural and economic benefit. Idaho citizens can continue to expect to enjoy the agricultural advantages that remain inherent within the state's terrain, culture, climate, and more throughout the 21st century, as it remains one of the most successful ongoing agricultural hot spots of the country even today.
