We all know that Idaho is the number one producer of potatoes in the U.S. -- but did you know it is also number one in U.S. production of Austrian winter peas? Didn't think so. There's a lot about Idaho most people don't know, and we promise you, it's not all agricultural. 

Idaho's pristine rivers, scenic canyons and Grand Teton Mountains are what keep people traveling there in droves. And Idaho is home to America's deepest river gorge, Hell's Canyon, which at 7,900 feet is deeper than the Grand Canyon. Nature-made attractions are everywhere you turn in Idaho -- and can also be found in the city as well. The Boise River, which runs through the downtown area, provides anglers with the opportunity to fish as a break from business.

Boise offers a number of different business meeting places, but the biggest is Boise Centre on the Grove, ideally located downtown  within walking distance to approximately 1,000 hotel rooms, a variety of fine restaurants, coffee bars, shopping, entertainment and exciting attractions.

Those exciting attractions include a great botanical garden and a number of museums to tour through, including the Old Idaho Penitentiary, which was originally built as a permanent territorial prison in the 1870s and closed after 100 years of use.

Historical Notes: Wilson Butte Cave, near Twin Falls, Idaho, was excavated in 1959 and found to contain bones of bison and antelope, as well as some arrowheads and other artifacts that were carbon-dated to be 14,500 years old, making them "among the oldest definitely dated artifacts in the New World."
