National forests are a treasure. They encapsulate natural beauty that our land has to offer, and protects it from commercialism and development. So many people visit Idaho for its natural beauty and serenity, but did you know that there are several notable forests within driving distance of The Ashley Inn?
About a two-hour drive from the Ashley Inn is Boise, Idaho. Many of our guests at The Ashley Inn live in our beloved capital city. When you live in a popular tourist destination, often times, people haven't taken the time to tour their own city, although it's a worthwhile pursuit.
Winter does not mean you have to hole up and hibernate. In fact, it’s exactly the opposite: especially in Idaho, there are several winter sports you don’t want to miss out on! Whether you’re a seasoned pro or a complete beginner, Cascade, Idaho, is the place to be this season. The landscape here is not only gorgeous but perfect for any winter sport that you can think of.
Trying local beers is a great way to explore a new vacation destination. Many brewers only sell their beers within their home state or region, and some even use area-specific hops and malt that give them distinctive flavors. So, if you don’t try local pints while you’re there, you might not get another chance until you revisit the area.
As fall begins, one of the best things to do in Cascade Idaho is to go hiking. The leaves are just starting to turn, and the abundance of color enhances the beauty of nature. Luckily, some of the best hot springs and Idaho hiking trails are located nearby to The Ashley Inn, so you don’t have to go too far to experience the crisp fall air while keeping warm during your trip to Cascade Idaho.
Southern Idaho tourism booms during autumn’s peak as “leaf-peepers” flock to our quiet lake towns and mountain villages in search of the most vibrant leaves in the Pacific Northwest. If you’re planning to visit Idaho this fall, please don’t forget about our gorgeous lakefront town.
