Kim Kardashian & Kanye West vacationed in Idaho for the 4th of July holiday

MTV Movie and TV Awards 2018

I’m old enough to remember when the first wave of celebrities were trying to make Idaho into “the new out-of-the-way celebrity hot spot.” Demi Moore and other flocked to Idaho and there were numerous articles about how Idaho was practically JUST INVENTED because celebrities went there. These days, I think Wyoming is The New Idaho. Wyoming is where Kanye West made his retreat last year. Kanye holed up in Jackson Hole for more than a year, working and forcing other artists to travel there to collaborate. He set up a studio for himself and he actually threw a listening party there too. But now it seems like the Kardashian-Wests have rediscovered Idaho, the OG Random Celebrity Hot-Spot.

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian joined a growing group of celebs to flee L.A. for the calmer vibes of Idaho, joining the likes of Wayne Gretzky, Adam Levine and Harry Styles … and it’s especially interesting given the political divide between Coeur d’Alene and Hollywood. Kimye and fam holed up at a $1.85 million cabin in Coeur d’Alene over the holiday … an area that’s recently become a hot spot for celebs.

Coeur d’Alene is super conservative … 66% of voters chose Trump in the 2016 general election. That same year, there were reports of KKK activity in the city. It’s in stark contrast to everything about Kim and Kanye. It seems, however, celebs are left alone when they visit, regardless of their political views.

The crib Kim and Kanye rented has 4 bedrooms, 4.5 baths and incredible views of the water. Not to mention, it’s got plenty of fun stuff for the kids including an inflatable aqua park. As for the decor — it’s a far cry from their Hidden Hills mansion — with a ton of wood, stonework and homey touches. Sources in the area tell us the Gretzkys regularly visit … and Adam Levine and Harry Styles — just to name a few — recently vacationed there.

The Wests have really made the Rocky Mountains a second home in the last year, with a lengthy stay in Wyoming, where Kanye perfected his 5 recently released albums.

What I find remarkable – sort of – is that Kanye seems to be the one driving this “let’s get out of LA” thing. Kim is an LA girl. She loves LA. That’s her home, that’s her base, that’s her blood. But she’s putting in the work to pretend to enjoy the simpler, flyover-state life. Chica even tried wakeboarding in Idaho and she snapchatted the whole thing. She’s terrible at wakeboarding, it’s sort of hilarious.

    Her face literally looks like a mask, she’s wearing so much foundation.

    Drove two of my great aunts from Montana down into Idaho about a decade ago The first sight when we crossed the border? The Aryan Nation Compound. Good luck in Idaho, Kanye.

  3. Clare says:

    Kanye is one of the few high profile black men who openly support Trump – he should fit right in Trump country, as he is their perfect black man. If I knew how to inset vomit emoji here, I would.

  4. Berry says:

    Is anyone else surprised that these two are still married?

  5. Tania says:

    So is there shade at the Gretzkys here? He used to be my favorite hockey player of all time and now it seems like he’s a caricature of who he once was. The clincher for me was his open support and getting behind Harper the last election. Harper was trump-lite and he met with Trump a few days ago and praised him. So if we’re holding people accountable, where does Gretzky fall in this?

    Of course she sucks at wake boarding-that huge ass is weighing her down from being able to get up on the board! 🤷🏻‍♀️

      Just coming on to say the same thing lolllll. You can see how heavy and draggy that thing is.

    • minx says:

      She looks ridiculous.

    • smcollins says:

      That and she obviously has no core strength. Strange for someone who’s claimed to have worked hard for their body, as opposed to achieving it through lipo & surgeries.

    • jwoolman says:

      But she kept on picking herself up and trying again, which is impressive to me. She probably had never done it before and she isn’t known for being physically coordinated.

    This is funny to me since I lived in Coeur d’Alene for a year as an exchange student (CDA Charter alumni!)
    It’s a pretty town, however I had to block half the people I knew there on Facebook because of the Trump love that I will never be able to stomach

  8. Natalia says:

    I was in an ER waiting room in Northern New Mexico (a liberal area!) on July 4th. Had to listen to that jerk Trump bloviating on Fox News. Thankfully not for long.

  9. lisa says:

    I’m from that area. All of Northern Idaho is gross. Coeur D’Alene is mediocre. Absolutely no clue why anyone would go there, when money is no object.

  10. Darby says:

    This makes me sad. We go to Coeur d’Alene every summer and it’s amazing. I don’t want it to become the newest hot spot.

  11. kiki says:

    she is wake surfing not wake boarding. wakeboarding you are attached to the board (like snowboarding) wake surfing is surfing the wake of the boat on a small surf board

    “Putting in the work” ??? Since when is going on vacation “work”? So now we need to pat Kim on the back for having fun and doing stuff while on vacation.
