Idaho may not seem like a top skateboarding destination so you might be surprised to learn that the Gem State boasts some incredible skateparks built by reputable companies such as Dreamland and Grindline Skateparks.

Southern Idaho in particular seems to know what the kids want and what us big kids want too which is skateparks, skateparks, skateparks! We don’t want just any old skateparks though… we want new and innovative designs for all types of skateboarders to enjoy. And I believe Idaho has done a great job in doing just that.

The driving itinerary provided below will take you to some of the best skateparks in Southern Idaho so buckle up!
