Boise Falls Behind in Most Popular Idaho Cities for New Residents
Idaho is a lovely place and odds are we don't need to explain our reasoning to you. There's something for everyone here whether you love a clean and booming downtown or a calm and isolated outdoor experience--it's all here and it's all close. Along with endless activities for just about anyone, there are four distinct seasons giving everyone a taste of all the weather seasons and sometimes, we get four seasons in one day!

For example in 2020 the State of Idaho saw about 320 "move-ins" for every 100 "move outs". This year, we're seeing about 123 "ins" for every 100 "out".
This is a whopping 60% decline.
