Location – Boise is located in the Pacific Northwest and convenient from many major airline hubs.  Once here, the Boise airport is only 10 minutes from downtown – and even closer to some of the city’s other hotel and entertainment districts.  All Boise area hotels offer FREE airport shuttles.

Urban amenities without the urban hassles   – Boise offers a variety of activities for all ages.  Enjoy pedestrian-friendly downtown shopping, golfing, and visiting one of unique museums (such as the only Basque Museum in the U.S., the Old Territorial Penitentiary and the Warhawk Air Museum or walk/bike the 22 mile greenbelt path along the Boise River.  Boise’s lifestyle and climate (235 days of sunshine) attract restaurateurs, entrepreneurs and artists from around the world.  You will find an abundance of outdoor eateries and pubs.  For visitors, this means all the comforts and quality of a large city, but without the transportation, security issues and other hassles.   

Lots to do – Boise keeps you entertained.  Whether you’re looking for culture (an outdoor Shakespeare performance or ballet), a western adventure (Rodeos), hiking or history, you’ll find it here.  Popular activities include a historic train ride on Thunder Mountain, rafting for all ages, and spa days, punctuated with evenings at the theaters and specialty restaurants featuring Idaho grown food and Idaho made beer and wine.  Visit one of our 25 wineries in the southwest region. 

Favorite summertime activities for locals and visitors alike includes attending the “Live After Five” free summer concert series on the Grove Plaza every Wednesday.   And visit Saturday Market to purchase local paintings, jewelry, pottery, décor and more, as well as locally grown food and wines.  For sports fans, experiencing one of the many sporting events such as Steelheads Hockey, BSU Football, Hawks Baseball, Stampede Basketball and Les Boise Park Horse Racing is a must.
