Overview


Hidden guides combine unique travel choices, outdoor adventures and little-known locales into a guide where vacations meet adventures. Each guide includes detailed maps, complete internet information for each listing, highlighted author favorites, suggested itineraries and walking and driving tours. In Hidden Idaho, well-respected veteran travel writer Richard Harris balances coverage of Idaho's growing travel facilities, including dude ranches, alpine cabin rentals, and secluded fishing lodges, with extensive details on the state's many natural attractions. Truly two guides in one, Hidden Idaho serves as both a travel guide and an outdoor adventure handbook with full listings describing 53 parks, 29 wildlife-viewing spots, 25 trout streams, and 143 campgrounds. It reveals those uniquely Idaho spots, including 40 ski resorts and 10 hot springs plus 23 mom 'n' pop diners and 6 local wineries. Hidden Idaho also zeros in on the state's many out-of-the-ordinary sites like the Basque Museum and Cultural Center, the Swiss Village Cheese Factory, and the Oasis Bordello Museum.
