Idaho is one of our country's best kept secrets. The area around Boise is rich in beauty, with quiet streams, beautiful mountains and abundant wildlife. There are places nearby to hike, fish, play in the water or play in the snow depending on the time of year. The scenic drives are amazing. The Sawtooth mountains soar nearby and are a wonderful day trip. Idaho City, an old mining town, has a wonderful hot springs to soak my cares away.

For both the city lover and the outdoor enthusiast. Boise has a university, a river, rock climbing, great food, markets, sports teams, hiking and biking trails, a ski mountain, a vibrant art scene and so much more. Boise is a family-friendly town that has something for everyone.

During the summer Boise weather is fantastic. They have great restaurants, and many family oriented activities. The downtown night life is great. Some of the summer activities include Beer Fest, Music Fest, Floating the Boise river from Barber Park to Downtown.

Good time in the park. Very crowded and a long wait before the show started. Once the show started we had a great time looking at all the different balloons. It was a little disappointing that none of the balloons left ground.
