- The Inland Northwest: Central and Eastern Washington, the Idaho Panhandle, and western Montana (Missoula, Kalispell/Flathead Valley and westward). This area is fused together economically.
- Eastern Oregon and the rest of Idaho (Boise, etc) are gray areas. Eastern Montana and Eastern Idaho definitely feel more Midwest/Rocky Mountain.
- Northwest Nazarene University is in Nampa, ID.

- Pocatello, ID calls itself the "Gateway to the Northwest".

The old Oregon Territory is the NW.
