Idaho is the state to get you outdoors with plenty of fun things to do.  This is main reason it attracts so many people to the Boise, Idaho Regional area.  The statistics show there is 444,028 population now and growing daily, the married population show 54.8% which means there's still a chance for singles to meet, the Median resident age is 35.8 years, unemployment rate at 3.0%, the median home price as of June 2017 was $273,950 and your average commute time is about 20 minutes.

No matter where you go during the spring and summer seasons, you will experience many green trees in Boise, Idaho which is also known as the City of Trees, the plush green embankments near subdivisions, plenty of open farmlands, and the beautiful Boise River and Reservoirs that fill the irrigation and recreational needs for the area.  The Fall gives you the crisp air during the afternoons and the changing of leaves that mark the entrance of the wonderful winters.  In the winter, you can experience snowboarding and skiing in the local mountains and in some years you can have as much as 2 to 3 ft of snow in the valleys where many people live.

Some things that you can do here in Idaho are the following:

Boise River Greenbelt

This flows through Boise and provides over 25 miles of scenic paths for biking, hiking, walking, or running.  

Bogus Basin

This gives four seasons of outdoor recreation on the mountain just 45 minutes from Downtown Boise. In the winter, you can experience downhill and Nordic skiing, snowshoeing, and tubing. Once the snow has left for the season, you can try out the mountain coaster, summer tubing, hiking, and mountain biking.

Ridge to Rivers Trail System

More than 190 miles of hiking and biking trails woven throughout the foothills that overlook Boise, Idaho to keep you in great physical shape while you enjoy the serenity of this area.

Idaho Wine Country

Idaho is home to more than 50 wineries, 25 of which are within 32 miles of downtown Boise.

Capital City Public Market

Specialty foods, fruits, vegetables, and artisan goods available every Saturday from April through October at this open-air market.

Lucky Peak Reservoir


Boating, camping, or a simple day out at the lake side is very convenient to slip out after working hours since it is only about 20 to 30 minutes from Downtown Boise

Halloween Events

There are many pumpkin patches and entertainment options for the kids during the Fall Season.  The Farmstead Corn Maze & Pumpkin Festival has a lot of fun filled activities with bouncers, animals, corn maze, games, food vendors and a zipline to name just a few things there to do.  Lots of fun.

 Hot Air Balloon Rides

Provides a beautiful view of the Treasure Valley which includes Farms, City landscape, Mountains, Rivers and Lakes all from the comfort of your high riding basket.

Why not come join the fun here in the Boise Regional Area of Idaho?  You won't regret the experience.
