On the Boise River in southwestern Idaho, Boise is the capital of Idaho and its most-populated city. Downtown Boise is the cultural centre, with a variety of shops and restaurants, and the 8th Street pedestrian zone is lined with sidewalk cafes. Downtown Boise's main attractions include the Idaho State Capitol, the classic Egyptian Theatre, and the Boise Art Museum. Nearby Idaho State Museum tells the story of Idaho.

Boise is a regional hub for jazz, theatre, and indie music. Surprisingly, Idaho’s ethnic Basque community is one of the largest in the United States, reflected in a vibrant section of Boise known as “The Basque Block.”

Boise offers numerous recreational opportunities, including extensive hiking and biking in the foothills. The Boise River Greenbelt is a series of tree-dotted trails and parks hugging the water's edge. The Boise River is a great destination for fishing, swimming and rafting. Barber Park offers summertime tubing experiences.

Julia Davis Park is home to Zoo Boise, and the excellent Aquarium of Boise is nearby, filled with over 250 species of birds, reptiles, and marine life. 

Downtown Boise events include farmers' markets, “First Thursday” events, and an “Alive After Five” summer concert series. Or book a chef-designed walking and tasting route, with stops at restaurants, markets, and gourmet food stores. Yes, Idaho is famous for potatoes, but Boise also offers Basque cuisine, brewpub burgers, Idaho steaks, farm-to-table cooking, and plenty of romantic restaurants. 

Near Boise, you’ll find Idaho Botanical Garden, Idaho Black History Museum, and the World Center for Birds of Prey where you'll meet California Condors, eagles, owls, vultures, and falcons from around the world. For an unusual experience, visit The Old Idaho Penitentiary where visitors can experience over 100 years of Idaho’s unique prison history with a visit to solitary confinement, cell blocks, and the gallows!
