Why So Many Californians are Making the Move to Idaho

Thinking of making the move from California to Idaho? You might be wondering what some of the advantages are moving from such a large and populated state to the land of potatoes. (Hint: we’re more than just potatoes!)

Idaho has many of the same benefits as California and some differences that make moving from the Sunshine State to the Gem State a great choice. Idaho might not have direct ocean access, but we do have some of the most amazing forests, ski resorts, glistening lakes, and recreational sand dunes! The outdoor activities in Idaho are endless, and there’s always something beautiful and exciting in your own backyard no matter where in the state you decide to call home. Not to mention that if you’re used to California traffic, commuting in Idaho is going to be a dream come true!

The cost of living in Idaho is a huge benefit in comparison to California. Consumer prices, restaurant prices, grocery prices, and local purchasing power are all within 2.71% to 20.14% lower in Boise, ID than in Los Angeles, CA. One pound of potatoes is 36.20% cheaper in Boise than in L.A.! That’s enough reason to start packing your bags today! 

The great state of Idaho has a booming economy with room to grow. If you’re a small business owner, Idaho is especially supportive of new and locally owned businesses. With wonderfully friendly people and amazing communities, any Idaho native will tell you that Idaho is the best place to start and raise a family. And if you’re ever craving the ocean, the California coast is only 10 hours away!
