Idaho is one of the lucky places that experiences distinct four season weather with fairly temperate days and nights throughout the year. However, average winter temperatures do dip into the 30's and occasionally into the 20's overnight, so it's important to protect your Idaho home from the elements.

Keep your home in tip-top shape throughout the winter by beginning the job in autumn. One of the first things you should do is have your furnace inspected. It's important to ensure that your furnace is operational, energy efficient and of-course, safe. Have a HVAC professional come out and have a look. The repairman will clean the furnace, change the filter, check for leaks and unhealthy gases and ensure everything is operating as it should.

Rock climbing

My life isn't ordinary because I don't live in an ordinary place. I toss my gear into the hatchback and jump into the seat, ready to take on the challenges of the cliff face just above Boise, Idaho. I've been hooked to the natural terrain the Boise Valley offers ever since my first climb here, over two years ago. As I drive along the winding, scenic pathway up to the Lucky Peak Reservoir towards my favorite spot, the Black Cliffs, my heart races with anticipation.

I remind myself again to thank the Boise Idaho native, who convinced me that the best place to get my excess energy out was right there at home with him, the region's headquarters for all things recreational. It is available for all in some way or another.  It's thick in the air. It

The vividly colorful landscapes of the fall season make for a spectacular time of year to take advantage of getting outdoors and to explore or perhaps enjoy past time favorites and some seasonally preferred activities of choice. The Fall Season weather is mild and the seasonal colors create a lovely presentation throughout the city of Boise and flow generously up into the Boise Foothills and Boise Mountain Range. Autumn in Boise has a way of inspiring seasonally unique specialty dishes and fall food favorites, create the backdrop for cooler weather adventures, and is an excellent time for discovering a cozy fireside retreat and taking to Idaho's backcountry for exploring before winter arrives. These are simply a few of Idaho's Fall activities in and

Aside from the Boise River and the Boise River Greenbelt, there is a treasure that the Ridge to Rivers Partnership bestows area residents and visitors alike. The Ridge to Rivers Partnership consists of the City of Boise, Ada County, and the Bureau of Land Management Four Rivers Field Office, Boise National Forest, and the Department of Idaho Fish and Game collectively with the goal of preserving and necessary maintenance of the trails. The Ridge to River Trail System could easily be described as the epitome of opportunity for area exploration within the Boise Foothills region. As adventurers tour the trails, it becomes valuable to reserve time to pause and marvel at the gorgeous mountain views and truly stunning scenery as the trails meander across

Idaho winters may be a bit cold for some. Despite a season of wintry white snow, one of the many reasons why Boise is such a great place to call home is the four seasons it experiences. These distinct four seasons delightfully complement an array of year-round outdoor activity opportunities from snowy slopes to summer splashes; the Gem State has a splendid way of balancing the vast myriad of open-air recreational possibilities that arise from all four seasons. So the snow has past and its warming up outside and now is a great time to start considering how you want to enjoy your summer months. You may consider planning ahead and be prepared for the hot summer days in the Boise area, as there are so many different fun and relaxing things to do to help

One local attraction, in particular, begs the attention of all Boise residents and visitors alike. The Boise River Greenbelt is an ideal destination for all to enjoy, with over 25 miles of a pathway that meanders graciously through the heart of the city and is nestled alongside the beautiful Boise River waters. Stretching from the city of Boise across to portions of the neighboring Garden City and then making its way over to the city of Eagle, the Boise River Greenbelt sits as the center attraction to several cities.

There are a few features that define Idaho’s capital of Boise. First, it is the seat of government and a lot of the state’s politics go on in the city. Second, it is the largest city in Idaho when it comes to population by a large margin and two of the other largest cities in the state are right next door to Boise and, to an outside observer, might look they are even part of the city of Boise (Though the residents of Boise, Meridian, or Nampa would set you right immediately if you told them this). But really, this is not enough to get a good picture of what Boise is or what the city is good for. You would need to spend a lot of time in Boise to really figure the city out and come to actually know it. I would like to set you on the path to

          When it comes to populated cities in the borders of Idaho there is one that stands out from the rest. As the capital of Idaho, Boise is a very important city. However, many capital cities across the United States (And even in some countries) are not the most important city when it comes to the economy or the largest city when it comes to population. Just look at the capital of the United States. New York City is the economic center of the country with its banks and stock market, but Washington D.C. is our permanent capital. What makes Boise so special then, to be both the capital of the state and the most populous as well? That is the question, of course, but I think I can do something to shed some light on why Boise is such a

The city of Boise has been dedicated to the environment and keeping the city as clean as possible.
