Moscow and the Palouse
Here in Moscow — which rhymes with "let's go" — the intellectualism of University of Idaho blends with the individualism of people from all walks of life. If you spend any time in Moscow at all, you'll be invited to the local Farmers Market (it's not just a market; around here, it's an institution) or to visit your friend’s favorite culinary hangout.
Moscow dines much bigger than its size. You’ll find inspired and unique options, including award-winning eateries, comfortable local favorites and ethnic dining. Sample everything from burgers to bouillabaisse. And the entertainment opportunities in Moscow are endless – the University of Idaho’s Arboretum, Palouse Clearwater Environmental Institute, Kenworthy Performing Arts Centre – or you can find fresh air and a great place to hike, read a book or even throw a picnic with friends.
Finding a local event to attend is the least of your worries. Only at U of I and on the Palouse can you take advantage of cultural events in our vibrant downtown and multiple recreation options –including ice skating, hiking or biking – all in the same day.
