BOISE, IDAHO – Where wilderness and adventure are only minutes from a lively downtown; where the people are friendly and laid back; where friends meet on the way home for burgers and brews after a day of skiing or tubing at Bogus Basin Mountain Recreation Area. Boise is a vibrant city with gourmet and trendy restaurants, funky local shops, craft breweries galore, and a strong community spirit. Boise is a thriving city, where a river runs through it, dirt trails are out your front door, and live theater performances are an Uber ride away.

This flourishing city is the state capital of Idaho, with a population of nearly 240,000. Boise is ideal because it’s large enough to have everything you could want at your fingertips, yet small enough to be friendly and easy to navigate. It’s no wonder it is one of the fastest-growing cities in the nation.

Outdoor recreation is a way of life in Boise, no matter the season. But don’t worry, if the outdoors isn’t your cup of tea, you’ll find plenty of other ways to fill your event calendar, from jazz and music festivals, live theater, and art exhibits to the largest Basque community in the United States. Sports fans are crazy about the beloved blue and orange Boise State Broncos football team and the Idaho Steelheads ice hockey team.
