What Kind of Winter Do You Like? Idaho’s Coldest & Warmest Cities
It’s pretty common in this area for people who don’t like the cold to move and live somewhere else for the Winter — like Arizona or Florida, or even Mexico or the Caribbean etc. And we call these people Snowbirds here in Idaho. I mean, maybe that’s just what they’re called everywhere, but I know for sure we call them snowbirds here in Idaho.
There’s a recent article from Cheapism that shares the coldest and warmest cities in each state. They said, “If you're looking for a warm getaway this winter, chances are you might first look to Florida or Texas. But the U.S. is a big place, and there's a lot of variation in temperatures even between cities in the same state. We've compiled a list of the warmest and coldest cities in each, so you have names to add to your destination list.”
So, what cities made the list for Idaho?
The warmest city in Idaho is Bruneau, Idaho
"A tiny town of fewer than 1,000 people have the distinction of being the warmest town in Idaho at an average of 68 degrees. Maybe if more people knew about the weather, they'd move to Bruneau?"
