When it comes to family vacations, Idaho rocks. I speak from personal experience. Growing up in Spokane Valley, near the Idaho border, I thought everyone had easy access to dozens of magnificent lakes, rushing rivers, and forest trails. Now I know what treasures they are, and how lucky I am. Today Idaho has even more amazing attractions and activities, with something to offer everyone from rough and rugged outdoor adventurers to those who appreciate the comforts of full-service spas, unique shops and galleries, and fine dining. This variety makes for a great family vacation, where every member will find something to their own taste and preference and yet the whole gang can share experiences and make memories together. Here are my recommendations for family vacation destinations in Idaho.
