    Idaho: The Hidden Gem State

    Picture of river and forest in Idaho

    Most people think Idaho’s nickname is the Potato State, but it’s actually the Gem State! In my opinion, it’s the Hidden Gem State. It flies under the radar because it doesn’t have any national parks. But don’t let that fool you! It’s actually the most mountainous state in the country, and full of beautiful scenery. And yes, it is also home to the World’s Largest Potato.
