Idaho

For many years Idaho's most famous industry was potatoes but this changed in recent years. Today, the largest industry in Idaho is the science and technology sector.

Science and technology accounts for over 25% of the State's total revenue. Still, the State's landscape is rugged with some of the largest unspoiled natural areas in the United States. The result: Today's Idaho is both cosmopolitan and small-town friendly.

Boise, the capitol and largest city, developed near Fort Boise along the Oregon Trail and has grown to a population of 190,000. Since 1990, Idaho's population has increased by 386,000 (38%).

Idaho is a large state in area. And if you could flatten the mountains, the size would be comparable to Texas. Idaho covers two time zones, runs from Canada to Nevada, and encompasses the western side of the continental divide of the Rocky Mountains.
