Hello there, Idaho native! You're definitely in the right place in this Idaho quiz! And that goes for if you're a lifelong Idaho native, recent transplant, frequent visitor, infrequent tourist or any combination of those. Idaho is one incredible (and dare we say, underrated place) so go ahead and consider yourself to be one of the lucky few who knows that it's so much better than what it gets credit for! Actually, it's probably better if you keep it on the down low... you don't want your beautiful state getting too crowded once people figure out how great it is! But if you want to ace this Idaho quiz, you're going to need to know a lot about the Gem State. And we mean that. A lot. You need to know about Hell's Canyon, the Smurf Turf, Finger steaks, fry sauce, potatoes, and so, so much more! Idaho has some seriously beautiful stargazing, camping, hiking, and nature. We wouldn't be doing Idaho justice by leaving out any one of these things on this eighteen question all-encompassing Gem State quiz. So if you're not a real native, enthusiast, transplant, local, or visitor, you might want to exit this quiz before you fail it.

If that last sentence applied to you, don't sweat it. Wherever you ARE a native/local/transplant, definitely has a quiz that covers that state or city. From Hawaii to Maine and everything in between, has it covered! It really is special to sit down and reconnect with a fellow local about a cherished city you both call home. Go ahead, start the quiz and ace it... if you can!
