In general the mountain west cities are all the current "boom" towns and areas of rapid growth. Reno, Boise, Spokane, Denver, Phoenix, LAs Vegas, Salt Lake.

I see no reason to think this will slow down, the West coast was the former boom reign of the last century but now it is full and expensive. I think the interior is the next area to really develop.

It is near Oil reserves and on some major highways, I wouldn't be surprised to see it really take off in coming decades.
I absolutely agree with this. Especially being a native of Boise. It has been remarkable being able to see first-hand the growth of this city over my years. This is a completely "different" city my daughter is growing up in than the one I did.......if that makes sense. It has been fun to watch but, like everything, it has definitely come with a price.
