In recent years, the cities in the Treasure Valley have increasingly tried to pride themselves as being a so-called “Green Cities”, which according one definition means, “a city designed with consideration given to (1) the impact on the environment, (2) the effort to minimize the required inputs of energy, water and food, and (3) the elimination of waste output of heat, air pollution (i.e., carbon dioxide), methane and water pollution.” With that consideration in mind, cities in the Treasure Valley have been participating in a number of environmentally friendly practices, including water conservation, recycling, land conservation, and more. With a state as beautiful specifically because of the abundance of pristine natural landscapes and open land,

Boise is a great place to live and, like anywhere else, it has its own culture and a list of things you must do if you want to experience it to the fullest. A classic, quintessential Boise day would most likely occur during the weekend, on Saturday to be specific, and would include a visit to the farmer’s market, delicious local food, checking out the sights of downtown and, to wrap things up with some excitement, a football game at Boise State University.

Every Saturday, there is a farmer’s market downtown, along Idaho Street and 8th Street. The sections of these roads that include the market are closed off to vehicular traffic and over one hundred and thirty vendors pop up their white tents, ready to sell their local foods and crafts. During the

Idaho is a fairly big place. It comes close to cutting the country in half on the United State’s western side. It is by no means the largest state in the country, though because Idaho is so tall, it inhabits a large variety of different kinds of terrain and land. Alternatively, if you ask pretty much anyone about Idaho, they will say that there is not much there. Despite its size, Idaho is one of the least populous states in the states. There are parts of the state where you can go for miles and miles without coming across anyone. However, while it is still pretty unpopulated in comparison to parts of the rest of the country, Idaho is not a barren wasteland. There some major urban centers with large populations, one of those being Boise, the capital

The Pacific Northwest, or the Northwest for short, is arguably one of the most scenic regions of the United States of America. WIth mountainous vistas, verdant forestry, bountiful rivers and, in fine, just about any piece of wilderness you could imagine or want, the Northwestern United States just about has it all. Idaho, the Gem State of the Northwest, is no exception, but one thing that sets Idaho apart from a good chunk of the Northwest is that, for the most part, the entire state of Idaho experiences all four seasons. This might seem like a no-brainer to most, but for Idahoans, such a fact is, in fact, quite the boon.

With that fact comes a host of possibilities for year-round enjoyment, whether it be something as simple as watching the seasons

The history of the downtown Boise area and the eastern Boise area are almost parallel to each other, so it is best to share the histories of both in the same article.

The city of Boise itself was named long before the establishment of Fort Boise by the federal government. The fort itself was abandoned in the 1850’s, but massacres along the Oregon Trail prompted a new one to be built. The new location of the fort was selected because it was near the intersection of the Oregon Trail and a major road connecting what is now Idaho City to the Silver City mining areas. The town of Lewiston used to be the capital of Idaho, but once the state of Montana was created, Boise became the new capital of Idaho after a controversial decision in 1866.
