Sawtooth National Recreation Area
The Sawtooth Range is a mountain range of the Rocky Mountains in central Idaho. This is an alpine, lake–studded, lupine-covered wonderland that rivals the nearby Grand Tetons. Filled with over 350 miles of hiking, horseback riding and mountain bike riding trails, inviting hot springs and lakes filled with trout, you will not be short of things to do here.
Craters of the Moon National Monument
A vast ocean of lava flows and scattered islands of cinder cones and sagebrush, Craters of The Moon National Monument is located on the Peaks to Craters scenic byway. There is a loop road that stops at several spots that explain the volcanic history. Who would have expected to see lava formations like those of Hawaii in the middle of Idaho?
Hard to beat the beauty and activities this lake has to offer whether its swimming, parasailing boating or fishing. It’s a great place to spend a relaxing weekend away because the town is so laid back. From the public marina you can rent canoes and kayaks or organize daily cruises with sunset and dinner options.
World Center for Birds of Prey
The World Center for Birds of Prey sits on a scenic hilltop in Boise, Idaho and is home to the world's largest flock of captive California Condors. The facility features interactive displays, multi-media shows, and live demonstrations with hawks, falcons, eagles and owls for visitors. A great place to stop if you have little ones road tripping with you.
Old Idaho Penetentiary
This state historic site was a functional prison between 1872 to 1973. While the prison was quite peaceful in the early years, by the year 1935 the behavior of the inmates changed and many riots and other types of violence started to erupt. The Old Penitentiary has an assortment of interpretive aids spread throughout the grounds, including displays on improvised weapons, daily life, and prison riots.
