ICYMI: Hollywood A-listers are joining Idaho's transplant crowd

Well, sort of. Our majestic mountains, pristine lakes, and secluded getaways are attracting some of the biggest names in entertainment. Not that we're surprised. Idaho's been shedding its reputation as a flyover state for a little over a decade now.

In 2023, all eyes were on a star-studded dinner at the Southfork Lodge. 

As far as his friends are concerned, we're guessing Jimmy Kimmel put Lowman, Idaho on the map for Hollywood's highest-paid locals. The late-night host and avid Idaho fisherman acquired the town's historic 1937 hotel destination resort in 2020.

Three years later on July 7, 2023, Kimmel's long-time pal, Kristen Bell, nearly broke the internet when she posted an Instagram photo of her attending a private dinner alongside the Snake River at the lodge.

For millions of fans, it was a behind-the-scenes look into the private lives of 33 of their favorite actors, anchors, comedians, writers, and tv hosts. There wasn't a face in Bell's picture that most people wouldn't love to befriend.

Since then, Tom Cruise and Jimmy Fallon have been spotted near the resort, putting Idaho's celebrity fanatics on high-alert for sightings of Kimmel's famous dinner guests in the gallery below.
