Heather said: “Panhandle in Kellogg.  For East Central Idaho, check out the Dog Bark Park B&B in Cottonwood and the Mammoth at Grangeville.  In the Snake River valley stop at The Hagerman Fossil Beds & Visitor Center in Hagerman, you will rethink everything you’ve heard about early horses!  In Central Idaho, visit Craters of the Moon National Monument and in Eastern Idaho go to the Lava Hot Springs.”

    If you’re going up to the northern area (near Couer d’Alene and Sandpoint), I highly recommend Silverwood. It’s an amusement park with a water park, and is a very fun place to spend the day with kids (they close down in the winter months due to snow though). Also in that area, check out the Wolf People shop; they have a wolf sanctuary up in the hills, and they bring a couple of the wolves out to the shop during the day for people to watch.

    Roystone Hot Springs is only an hour away from Boise, go if you can, you won’t regret it!

    For the daredevils among you, B.A.S.E. jumping is allowed off of the Perrine Bridge in Twin Falls! (There are places that will take you tandem) If something a little less adrenaline filled is more up your alley, there are places where you can rent a canoe or kayak to take down underneath the bridge.

    And The Birds of Prey center near Boise is amazing – the reason we have a Peregrine falcon on our state quarter, and it’s a treat to learn about all of the conservation efforts!
