Idaho is increasingly becoming a mix of both city and rural life. Some Idahoans do live in cabins in the middle of nowhere, but others live in urbane condominiums in downtown Boise. Indeed, Boise is now the largest metropolitan area in the [[Rocky Mountains (United States of America)|Rocky Mountains]] region of the US outside of [[Colorado]]. Most of the other major cities in Idaho have also experienced significant growth over the past 20 years.

In part because of this growth, some longtime Idahoans are openly disdainful of newcomers in general, and ex-Californians in particular. However, this rarely translates into an expression of ill will towards visitors.
  
 
Idaho is typical of several other western states, e.g., Oregon, Washington, and California, in that there are really two states in one. The northern part of Idaho is characterized by mountains, lakes, forests and rivers.  While the southern half has some spectacular mountains (the Owyhees and parts of the Tetons), it is mostly high-plains desert similar to the Inland Empire of southern California.
