Whether you're planning an extended fall road trip or you're an Idaho local looking for an adventure this weekend, now is a great time to explore the outdoors in Idaho. Camping, photography, hot springs...everything in Idaho is better in the fall. The autumn foliage makes for amazing photos and the cooler temps (even the occasional dusting of snow) make for fewer crowds in all of our favorite adventure spots. Even Boise is more fun in the fall! Check out a few of our favorite fall adventures around the state and hurry to make your plans to explore Idaho before the seasons change again!
