Idaho is filling up too fast.

Does anyone disagree?

There’s just no way around it, and when you see the clever signs and bumper stickers saying things like, “no vacancy,” or, “don’t California my Idaho,” it leads you to believe that Idahoans aren’t exactly fond or on board with the sudden influx of people.

With that, Boise and its neighboring cities are growing drastically, as Treasure Valley cities are the most popular places in Idaho to be moving to. There are obvious political reasons why people are fleeing their states for better ones like Idaho, but another big reason is price — for a long time Idaho has been more affordable than other states.
