Is summer in Idaho fun or is it too hot?
Is summer in Idaho fun or is it too hot?

To all those who say this summer hasn’t been so bad, thank you for bringing bad luck to the Magic Valley. Summer is here, and this week it’s in full force. Temperatures will be in the triple digits for several days in a row, and many of us will be looking for ways to cool off over the next few weeks. A day with temperatures in the 90s is considered cool over the next few weeks, which is an indication of exactly how warm it will be. While many in the area are complaining about the summer heat, maybe you should stop complaining and instead enjoy one of the most wonderful times of the year.

Despite the heat, it’s worth taking advantage of summer. While other seasons are beautiful, summer is truly the best season in Southern Idaho. Every weekend is full of events, you can swim in your local pool, community pools, a lake, a river, or maybe a hidden gem you discovered on a hike. There are some fantastic places to go fishing, kayaking, or enjoy time in an inflatable raft or on a boat. While the water is beautiful, that’s not all Idaho has to offer. has to offer in summer.

There are some nice golf courses in the area and disc golf courses as well as. All of this is just for the Magic Valley, but once you venture outside the area, there’s even more to do in the great state of Idaho during the summer.

It may be hot and you may want to stay indoors or in the pool, but don’t let a single day of summer go to waste since there are so few of them. You’ll have plenty of time to stay indoors in the future, but for now, get out there, enjoy the heat, and have fun enjoying Idaho’s most beautiful season.
