When we say unique, we mean very unique! This Idaho attraction has alligators just hanging out next to you.

If you thought Florida was the only state with alligators, you thought wrong. One would think alligators could only be found in Idaho zoos or something, but apparently, they’re also at these amazing hot springs just an hour and a half away from the Boise area.

Miracle & Banbury Hot Springs (Exit 141 about 120 miles from Boise) is much more than just a great place for hot springs, it's also an awesome day trip and weekend getaway. There are 4 larger public pools and 15 private hot pools for reservation, and really unique campgrounds that have geometric domes for staying overnight in.

However, it's starting to get much warmer so you may not want to get in the hot pools. But there are other pools and things to do that still make this a great Spring/Summer attraction, too. For example, there are alligators living there — which is a bit frightening to say the least.

In the 1990s, the owners of Miracle Hot Springs discovered that their hot springs perfectly emulated the natural habitat of alligators, and then the idea was sparked that having alligators would make these hot springs a unique and memorable experience for visitors... and that has proven to be 100% true.
