One of the most underrated destinations in the US is the state of Idaho. And yet, with more than one hundred mountain ranges and millions of acres of wilderness, it is a destination that shouldn’t be missed. There are so many reasons why you should take a family vacation in Idaho. Instead of going through those reasons though, I am going to share a few of the most incredible family activities in Idaho. I think those activities will finally convince you that this is a must-visit state! Especially when we are celebrating National Idaho Day.
There is nothing better than taking a family hike to Mesa Falls during a vacation in Idaho. There are two Mesa Falls, lower and upper. So, don’t miss out on seeing them both during this family adventure!
You will find these waterfalls near Henrys Fork on Snake River. This is inside the Caribou-Targhee National Forest. There is a mile-long hike between these two waterfalls. But you do not need to hike the trail unless you want to.
Let me begin by saying that the Route of the Hiawatha is fifteen miles long. Don’t panic though! It is mostly downhill, so the ride is much easier than you are thinking!
I highly recommend this bike ride when you are on a family vacation in Idaho. As you pedal along, you will find yourself riding through ten different tunnels. There are also seven trestle bridges that offer extraordinary views.
And yes, you can bike this route both ways. But the ride back will all be uphill. So, if that isn’t on your list of fun for the day, I suggest taking the shuttle bus back.
Family vacations on the lake are incredible for making memories that last a lifetime. When in Idaho, I recommend you spend some time out on Lake Coeur d’Alene. This lake is perfect for paddleboarding or kayaking as a family.
When you are not in the water, you can take the short hike around Tubbs Hill. And once you are all tired out, you can board a boat for a sunset cruise around the lake.
The Sawtooth Wilderness is filled with stunning lakes, lush pine forests, and gorgeous views. One of the best ways to experience this area of Idaho is from the back of a horse. I can arrange a horseback riding adventure for you, as I am planning your family vacation in Idaho.
There are quite a few hot springs in Idaho. So, why not soak in one during your family vacation?! Choose a hot spring near your hotel or travel to one further away that looks amazing. Then sit and relax in the warm water, as you stare out at the beauty this state has to offer.
These are the five best family friendly activities to do in Idaho. You can easily do them all to celebrate National Idaho Day during a family vacation.
