A Great Place to Live, Work, and Play!
The Boise metropolitan area is consistently listed at the top of national surveys of “Best Places” to live! Our unique and progressive “City of Trees” has a low crime rate and an affordable cost of living. More importantly,it is a friendly, open and multidimensional community – with a thriving local arts and food scenes, microbreweries and wineries, extensive recreational activities, as well as cultural, educational and athletic events for people of all ages. The Boise River runs through the center of town and offers a 20+ mile greenbelt, a white-water park, fishing, kayaking, and family float trips on hot summer days! Lining the river are 3 major public parks that are home to our Art and History museums, arboretum, band shell, zoo, baseball and soccer fields. These parks offer a haven for abundant wild-life, space for family outings, reunions and recreation as well as areas for quiet contemplation. We have all 4 beautiful, distinct seasons – none are extreme – and each is celebrated with annual community events. Our proximity to the mountains offers unparalleled year-round activities including skiing, hiking, and mountain biking as well as the annual Race to Robie Creek half marathon – the toughest race in the Northwest - that attracts runners from around the world and benefits numerous local charities. In short, with all Boise has to offer, why live anywhere else??
