The hip little city of Moscow, Idaho is nestled amongst the rolling green hills of the Palouse, a distinctive, beautiful region in the inland Northwest that offers some of the best photographic and birding opportunities in Western North America. Moscow is accessible via three airports: Pullman, Washington (10-minute drive); Lewiston, Idaho (35-minute drive); and Spokane, Washington (90-minute drive). Known as the “home of the arts,” Moscow boasts a vibrant arts and culture scene that features independent bookstores, over forty restaurants and coffee houses, a thriving local Co-op and farmer’s market, art galleries, lively bars and an independent movie theatre. The town lies within easy distance of a host of outdoor activities, including hiking, biking and running along miles of local paved paths and mountain trails, birding, fishing in the nearby Snake River and whitewater rafting on the Salmon River. Given all of these amenities, it is no surprise that Moscow was recently named one of the nation’s five best places to live among college towns by Men’s Journal and the University of Idaho was recently named one of the top 30 great universities for “hitting the books and the back country” by Outside Magazine. The campus is home to a century-old, 63-acre arboretum and botanical garden and public golf course and is fully wired and wireless.
