Idaho’s thriving capital city has emerged as one of the Northwest’s most vibrant hotspots and many are taking notice. In fact, Expedia Viewfinder recently named Boise, “One of the best downtowns in North America.” This growing city offers the perfect combination of urban lifestyle and outdoor adventure. Finding yourself in Boise is not difficult, with nonstop flights from 21 major markets, including San Jose, Denver, Chicago, Houston and San Francisco. The Boise Airport is just a short seven minutes from the city center.

Energetic City

Boise’s compact, walkable downtown gets its cool and hip status from the many unique shops, local one-of-a-kind eateries, live music venues and a growing number of breweries all located within a ten block radius. The city’s 8th Street is a lively hub of activity, with outdoor dining options, nightlife and a weekly, seasonal farmers market all centered here. Nestled on the first floor of one of Boise’s earliest buildings is Fork Restaurant that takes local food and drink to a new level. Including, a modern and delicious twist on an Idaho favorite, Hagerman Corn Crusted Trout.

Adding to Boise’s progressive downtown are several newly built hotels, a recently-expanded convention center and adjoining civic plaza that reopened this past summer with an enhanced fountain, seating and shade structures.

Culture and Art Abound

Not to be missed are the many murals and public art pieces that make Boise’s streets and alley’s more colorful. Music enthusiasts will enjoy the Alive After Five outdoor concert series, which takes place weekly from June through August. Boise’s historic Basque Block offers museums, restaurants and the annual San Inazio Festival held at the end of each July. A number of art galleries, operas, ballets and the Idaho Shakespeare Festival outdoor amphitheater add to Boise’s cosmopolitan appeal.

Explore Urban Greenspace

Within the downtown core are two large city parks and the Boise Greenbelt 25-mile walking and biking path that follows the Boise River through the city. Bike rentals available at many different sites throughout downtown make it easy to get around. The nearby Boise Foothills, boast hundreds of miles of hiking trails with something for all abilities.
