What’s all the fuss about Boise Idaho? Why is it always ranked high for best places to raise a family. Is it the most beautiful place on the planet, no but it is very mountainous and beautiful and offers a quick easy escape to nature in almost any direction. Is it the cheapest on the planet? No, but the quality of life dollar for dollar is significantly better compared to most states and cities with the same amenities. Did I mention the friendliness you find everyday. You will find a large amount of big city amenities but still have the small town friendly feel. That is why many migrate here to raise a family and many others choose to retire here. But isn’t Idaho just a lot of potatoes? Common misconception,… I know you were thinking that. Actually Idaho is the largest exporter of wheat, so wheat overrules potatoes.
Idaho offers more wilderness land than any other US state outside of Alaska. If you flattened Idaho out it would be larger than the state of Texas. You could spend a lifetime exploring it.
But what does it have to offer for day to day living you may ask? Besides the great dining, I have compiled a list of places to go and explore when you make your way here for a visit. Maybe you already live here, so here is a bucket list to complete.
Boise Zoo , Idaho Birds Of Prey Center, Idaho State Historical Museum, Basque Block, Egyptian Theatre, Boise Idaho Ballet , Julia Davis Park, Live After Five, Boise Philharmonic, Discovery Center of Idaho, Idaho Dance Theatre Inc., Boise State Broncos football , Idaho Shakespeare Festival, Boise Opera, Live Music and Concerts, Bogus Basin Ski Resort , Lucky Peak Reservoir , Ann Morrison Nature Park, not to mention ‘Fly Fishing’, great Bike trails, hiking the Boise foot hills, ‘White Water Rafting, comedy clubs, restaurants and pubs with a relaxing night life and much much more. Don’t forget to check out the Boise Greenbelt a 25 mile long paved path that meanders along the scenic Boise river.
These are a few of my favorite things. What have you discovered in Idaho. Please share.
