The Charm of the City of Trees
Situated within the largely high-altitude desert of Southwestern Idaho, the Treasure Valley is a surprisingly lush area. Formed by the Snake River Basin and surrounded by rolling hills, this scenic region of Idaho has attracted all sorts of plants and wildlife - including people.
The largest city in the Treasure Valley is Boise, the state capital as well as the largest metropolitan area in-state. Home to over 205,000 people, this vibrant community has continued to develop since being founded in 1863. People searching for Boise Idaho houses for sale will find a home in an animated, lively city.
Originally a mining town, Boise was popularized for nearby caches of gold. When the mines eventually became derelict, however, Boise was able to retain its livability with its strong business. Not too long after being founded, it surpassed Lewiston, Idaho in popularity and gained the distinction of being both the territorial capital and state capital in 1864.
Now over a century old, Boise is an eclectic city, filled with both traditional grace and modern appeal. For example, Boise’s major public parks are impressive, active spaces that are named after some of their city’s patron women. All of these parks are set along the Boise River, creating what is known as the Chain of Jewels. One of the most famous parks in this chain is the Julia Davis Park, the oldest in the city as well as the home of institutions like the Boise Art Museum, the Idaho Historical Museum, and the Zoo Boise.
The Zoo Boise houses over 80 species, and over 200 individual animals. This is a nationally accredited institution and part of the Association of Zoos & Aquariums - only one of 210 zoos in the country to reach that distinction. That’s less than 10% of the total zoo licenses currently issued!
Boise residents might also be interested in visiting local recreational areas like the Boise Foothills, or even the Boise River itself.
The foothills to the north and northeast of the city contain a network of trails to explore, with paths for horses and ATVS. This area also contains the Table Rock Plateau. Though reachable by car, this scenic natural monument is often hiked by Boise residents.
The Boise River, which runs through Boise, Eagle, Star, Middleton, Caldwell, and Parma, is one of the most popular in the Treasure Valley. This winding water way is known for both being an excellent source of brown trout fishing and recreation such as floating on inflatable rafts. Many people float the river section between Barber Park and Kathryn Albertson Park, a calm section of the river only interrupted by a few rapids. The Boise River rapids, however, is only classified as Class I - other sections of Idaho rivers, on the other hand, can go up to Class V.
Boise is not only a recreational town - it is often identified by its strong artistic presence. Public art murals and statues are displayed proudly throughout the city. Additionally, institutions and organizations like the Boise Contemporary Theater, the Boise Philharmonic, the Boise Art Museum, and the Idaho Shakespeare Festival are active participants of the community.
The Boise community continues to be an integral part of the Gem state and a significant part of it as well. To live in Idaho’s capital, look at some of the most known neighborhood in the area. In a place where a historical Queen Anne can be found on the same street as a contemporary Old Mission, there is never a sense of boredom when browsing homes in Boise!

The Northwest region of Boise is a largely hilly area, and homes built here are often built with multiple stories to accommodate for the terrain changes. Some homes are built in the Old Mission style, known for their architectural accents, stucco walls, and red, terracotta tiles. This style of home is made to reduce the impact of Idaho’s warmer summers on the homeowner as well as adapt to the colder temperatures in the winter.
This area of Boise is closest to many of Boise’s parks, including those along the String of Pearls, a collection of parks along the Boise River named after patron Boise women. Furthermore, homes in Southeast Boise are near the Boise Foothills and Lucky Peak Reservoir, Boise’s premier boating location and state park.
