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

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.

That is the question, of course, but I think I can do something to shed some light on why Boise is such a
