Would like to hear what people think about Idaho. Specifically Boise. Would you consider it part of the Pacific NW?

Do you prefer WA or ID? Living differences?

Idaho is considered part of the "The Northwest", but sometimes not "The Pacific Northwest". Idaho is more conservative than Washington, atleast Western Washington, where most of the population lives. Idaho is cheaper than the Seattle area, but has many similarities economically with Washington State...timber, farming, even technology in the Boise area. Eastern Idaho, however, has more in common with Utah.

I dont think much of Idaho but I would probably prefer to live in Idaho over Washington and I think of it in the Mountain West with states like WY,MT,or CO.

Idaho is part of the Great Northwest, as is Montana (at least Western MT) and possibly even Alaska.

Pacific Northwest? Only Oregon and Washington full under that term. I've actually never been to Idaho, but I have heard it's similar to Eastern OR and Eastern WA which I am familiar with. Can't speak to it though.

Idaho is one of the most Republican states in the nation. Gallup places it as the third most Republican. It also has the ninth highest percentage identifying as conservative.

Political Party Affiliation: 30 States Blue, 4 Red in 2009 So Far
Political Ideology: "Conservative" Label Prevails in the South

It's also far less Asian than any state on the Pacific Coast and noticeably less black too.

Although I think it's considered similar to Eastern Oregon and Washington. I've never been much of anywhere, but mostly I think of it as a Central-Mountain state.
