Boise, the capital and largest city in Idaho, is best known for its potato crop. Surrounded by farmland, it is the largest city between Portland, Oregon and Salt Lake City, Utah. The surrounding area is also rich in silver; Idaho is currently the country’s largest silver producer, with nearly half of all the newly-mined silver in the US.
