The Travel Channel made a list of the 10 top shopping cities in the world. And guess what? Boise did not make the list.

The history of the City of Boise is a story of humble beginnings, with fluctuating success, population, and industries, all stabilizing to create the Boise we know and love today only within the last several decades.
