I’ve lived in Idaho my entire life, so I’ve grown up hearing the word “Idahome” thrown around like crazy. It’s always a trending hashtag for Idaho on Instagram, and not only do I distinctly remember getting Instagram for the first time, learning what “hashtags” were, and using the hashtag #idahome on my own posts … but this is a really popular word for Idaho merchandise too, as you will see it on anything that can be created and sold. (Shirts, signs, tattoos, mugs etc.)
I was surprised with where some cities ranked and how others were not on the list at all. While I started with the top 20 I felt it was important to add Boise which made it to #23 on the list of best places to retire in Idaho.
