Book a trip to Boise to experience the Treasure Valley.
Boise is known for its vibrant, clean, artistic city center and its tree-lined streets just steps from the Boise River and hundreds of trails. Both rugged and refined, this is where you come to experience the West’s best city and push your limits.
Surrounded by foothills and nestled along the Boise River, Idaho’s state capital offers easy access to hiking, skiing, mountain biking, and kayaking. Cyclists take to the Boise River Greenbelt, a 40-km paved route through the city dotted with parks, restaurants, urban wineries, breweries, and cideries. Thrill seekers head north of Boise to the Payette River for guided rafting trips and kayak adventures with Cascade Raft. Rock climbers will be impressed with Boise’s Black Cliffs, known for crags that appeal to beginners and experts alike.
Just minutes from the bustle of the city, Bogus Basin Recreation Area is known for its wilderness and mountain access. From yoga on the mountain to biking, hiking, and skiing, it is an outdoor haven for all. Water enthusiasts head to Lucky Peak State Park for boating, kayaking, SUP and picnics. Boise is also a gateway to the mountain recreation destinations of McCall and Sun Valley. It’s easy to rent a car at BOI and be at either spot in approximately two hours.
Named one of America’s Next Great Food Cities by Food & Wine, Boise’s culinary scene is not to be missed. The Warehouse, Boise’s new food hall, is making headlines with its 11 restaurant concepts and two bars. Just a short drive from the Sunnyslope wine region, Boise boasts an impressive number of tasting rooms – so many that there is an urban wine tour for those who prefer to stay in the city limits.
Boise’s vibrant culture is second to none. From the Boise Art Museum and Idaho Botanical Gardens to the Anne Frank Human Rights Memorial and the newly opened Erma Hayman House, Boise’s cultural attractions feature thought-provoking collections and significant traveling exhibitions.
Boise is home to the largest Basque community outside of Spain and its influences are evident throughout the greater Boise region. In Downtown Boise’s historic district, the Basque Block is home to the rich history and heritage of the Basque people, preserving the traditions and flavors of the inhabitants from Europe’s Bay of Biscay.
The Block features the Basque Museum and Cultural Center, restaurants with an authentic taste of Basque culture, the Basque Market (full of wines and food from the Basque Country and Spain) and the Basque Center, which is home to community events and Basque dancing and gatherings.
Boise’s Bench District offers some of the city’s best views. Architectural styles vary wildly here, and each street brings a new experience. It’s also home to a growing number of restaurants influenced by the city’s refugee community, prompting AFAR Magazine to name it one of the Best Food Neighborhoods in the U.S.
Getting to and from Boise is easy. Just three miles from the city, Boise’s airport is conveniently located to make sure you make the most of your visit by exploring the city and the surrounding outdoors.
The Boise Airport also partners with area businesses to bring you a taste of Boise’s local fare when you’re coming and going. Sample dishes from favorites such as Parilla Grill, Bardenay, or 13th Street Bar and Grill while you wait for your flight.
