Idaho Bucket List ~ Southwest Region

Today we head into the southwest corner of Idaho and visit the area that is home to the state’s capitol, Boise.


  • Idaho State Capitol Building: Of course we have a goal to visit every capitol building, so this is a must.
  • Idaho State Museum: Great way to check out the history of the state.
  • Old Idaho Penitentiary: Explore over 100 years of Idaho’s prison history.
  • Zoo Boise: I love exploring different zoos.


  • Bruneau Dunes State Park: Features giant sand dunes.


  • Kirkham Hot Springs: Explore numerous geothermal springs in varying temperatures at the bottom of the wooden stairs.
  • Pine Flats Hot Springs: This set of hot springs also features a geothermal waterfall.
