There is Always Something to Do…
...In Boise’s Downtown!
Over a fifth of a million people live in Boise, and spend much of their time in the downtown core. This tree-lined capital is not just an active area, though; it still retains a distinctive small-town charm thanks to the outdoor cafes, local businesses, and brick sidewalks. There are also large city parks in the area -- one of which is Julia Davis Park.
Julia Davis Park, as the oldest park in the city, is the most well-known. Its 93 acres include four of Boise’s excellent museums, as well as a paddle boat pond and the Boise Rose Garden. Its pristine landscaping is often used by Boise organizations to host large festivals. One of these festivals, Art in the Park, is held every year in September by the Boise Art Museum. This event attracts hundreds of thousands of people every year, as artists from all over the Pacific Northwest come to display and sell their work to the public.
The Boise Art Museum, coincidentally, is also located in Julia Davis Park. This facility is nearly 35,000 square feet of exhibits from all over the world. In fact, of the 17,500 or more museums in the United States, the BAM is one of 4% of these museums to have reached accreditation with the American Association of Museums. And the Boise Art Museum is not the only place in Boise to find incredible pieces on display. Downtown Boise is filled with colorful murals and street art, which can be seen on nearly every city corner. One of the largest collections of street art is Boise’s own Freak Alley. This service alley is redecorated every two years by individual local artists.
Prefer to spend time indoors? Maybe you’d like to visit the Boise Towne Square Mall. This is the largest mall in the state of Idaho, and has over 180 stores, including Macy’s and JCPenney. People from all over the Treasure Valley come to enjoy this quality facility, and its sister facility the Boise Towne Plaza.
And we cannot forget about Boise sports! Boise is not only Idaho’s capital city, but it is also the home of Boise State University and their football team, the Boise State Broncos. Boise State University is a Division I athletic school, and brings a lot of athletic events to the city. Boise is also where the Idaho Steelheads Hockey, the Boise Hawks Baseball, and the Idaho Stampede Basketball teams are located.
...In Boise’s Wilderness!
Fortunately for those who live in the area, Boise is at the head of the Boise River’s entrance into the Treasure Valley, and is surrounded to the north and east by the Boise Foothills. The Treasure Valley is a lush river valley in the otherwise arid Southwestern Idaho, and so Boise residents have access to a wide array of climates should they choose to explore Idaho’s outdoors.
If you’re looking to beat the heat during Idaho’s warmer summer days, you can do no better than visit the Boise River. This unhurried, snowmelt river is bordered by the Boise Greenbelt, which runs between the Lucky Peak Reservoir to the southeast of Boise, all the way to the city of Eagle in the northwest -- about one-fifth of the total length of the river. The Greenbelt is a mostly-paved path, and is an excellent way to view Boise from the ground.
If you want to see Boise from the air, however, visit the towering Boise Foothills. Arid, high-desert hills home to sagebrush and other local wildlife, these picturesque natural formations lead the way to the Bogus Basin Mountain Recreation Area -- a very popular ski resort. However, these foothills are lined with nature trails, and are visited by many Boise residents throughout the year. Table Rock, a plateaued mountain pillar in the foothills, is one of the most popular locations to visit here. From its peak one can see a large part of the Treasure Valley. This view should not be missed!
The Boise National Forest, directly behind Tablerock, is where most Boise residents will go to camp and spend a weekend in the mountains. There are dozens of campgrounds in this forest, and many of them are RV accessible, like Macks Creek Park. Others like Grayback Campground have more traditional camping facilities. However, no matter the campground you choose to stay at in Idaho, you can have a great time.
...In Boise’s Neighboring Cities!
Boise is near to quite a few other cities in the Treasure Valley, and it takes only a short drive to reach them.
Nampa, which is less than half an hour away from Boise, is the second largest city in Idaho, just behind Boise. This charming community hosts events like the Snake River Stampede, one of the largest and well-known rodeo events in Idaho.
And in-between Boise and Nampa is Meridian, the third largest city and the home of Idaho’s largest waterpark, Roaring Springs, as well The Village at Meridian. This Euro-style shopping center is a deluxe shopping, dining, and entertainment facility with a beautiful outdoor space.
Or visit Eagle, ten minutes to the northwest of Boise. This town may be small, but it makes it up in the high-quality landscaping, views of the Boise Foothills, and outdoor venues like Eagle Island State Park and the Eagle Sports Complex.
