The University of Idaho is surrounded by the rolling Palouse hills, an area so beautiful it was featured in National Geographic magazine. Just minutes away from the forests, rivers and lakes of North Idaho, Moscow is home to more than 24,000 residents and a wide range of student-minded businesses, such as you would only find in a university town. In fact, Men’s Journal named this “hip little city” one of the nation’s five best places to live among college towns. Art galleries, movie theaters, coffee shops and restaurants line the streets. In addition to popular drive-throughs, Moscow offers a huge co-op with organic and natural foods, Northwest-style pubs, as well as locally owned Italian, French, Mexican and Chinese eateries.
