Idaho is a wonderland.

While John Mayer was busying crooning over his high school sweetheart's figure, we were falling head-over-heels for Idaho's gorgeous curves and outdoor adventures.

From her stunning blue lakes and sky-scraping mountain peaks, to her quirky museums, sky rides, roadside attractions, and day trip excursions—you could explore the Gem State for 100 years and not experience half of all she has to offer.

Take it from those of us who can't keep a cap on our running Idaho bucket list to save our lives or our wallets.

ICYMI: not all adventures are free

Gear, equipment, food, guides, and gas, the grander the adventure, the more time and money it takes to pull it off. A few years ago, we decided it was time to scale back on the number of big trips and excursions we took each summer.

Still, we had no intention of scaling back on family fun. We just had to figure out how to do it on a more conservative budget 😉

Friends don't let friends overpay for Idaho fun. 

Idaho natives and long-time friends of ours, Paul and Lydia knocked our Bombas socks off when they told us they'd gotten into a popular Twin Falls attraction for free, zilch, nada...$Free.99!

That doesn't sound like a big deal until you account for the fact that our friends have six beautiful children, four of which had joined in on the free fun in Twin.
