BoiseBoise is a vibrant small city, with a walkable downtown featuring diverse, locally-owned shops and restaurants, live theater, dance, music, sports, and more. Stroll to galleries, visit museums, and check out the local produce at the Saturday Farmer's market.

Surrounding this downtown core are affordable neighborhoods with personality. Just a few minutes away you can find miles of hiking trails, bike paths, and floatable rivers. Since Bogus Basin ski area is within 16 miles, you can ski in the morning and bike that afternoon.
