Idahoans love their state, but just like other places, there are challenges to living in the Gem State. However, a bad day in Idaho is better than a great day in any other state in America.

One aspect that attracts folks to Idaho is its people. You can always tell who has lived in Idaho by how they behave in public. Folks who are visiting or are new to the state aren't used to folks letting you line or stopping their vehicles to allow you to cross the street or parking lot.
