a long tradition of Christmas parades, fairs and festivals, Idaho makes for a memorable destination throughout December.
Boise is an ideal place to kick-off the holidays with lights ablaze
everywhere, or head off to Pocatello or Coeur dAlene, where
winter nights are awesomely illuminated with annual Christmas
lucky enough to be traveling through Idaho in January, also don't
miss the near-miraculous display of snow and ice sculptures at
the McCall Winter Carnival ...'
