The capital of Idaho, Boise, is a buzzing city with a lot to offer visitors. There are many lovely parks and green spaces in the city and the river itself is a pretty spot for a stroll. Plus, there are some excellent museums in town. You’ll want to check out city sites like Julia Davis Park, The Idaho State Capitol Building, Boise Art Museum, Idaho Botanical Gardens, and the Oregon Trail.
The Boise River Greenbelt is a great place to start - it’s a park stretching for 25 miles along the Boise River and full of pretty spots to watch the wildlife, go for a run or a bike ride, and take in the views. The Boise Art Museum is house in an Art Deco Building and has some impressive exhibitions, both permanent and temporary. Foodies will flock to the public market or farmers market where you can get fresh, local produce, and artisan goods. Boise has a great festivals scene with live music and events all year round.
Staying in Boise, most people like a more touristy area, such as downtown Boise, where you can easily walk to attractions in the city.
Visit Boise in Summer for warm, dry days.
