BOISE Visitor Guide

WELCOME

Welcome

Greetings from Boise, Idaho! Idaho’s capital city is situated in the high desert of southwestern Idaho, right on the Boise River. There are 20 non-stop destination flights daily connecting our city at the foot of the Boise mountain front to the world. Boise’s stellar quality of life includes a vibrant urban downtown, cultural and culinary experiences, unique attractions and close-in outdoor recreation. When you get here, you’ll enjoy a thoroughly walkable, friendly and safe downtown. We are delighted that you are thinking about Boise as your place to visit. My hope is that once you stop in, you’ll see why we’ve made so many “Top 10” lists in the last few years. We designed this booklet to be both engaging and useful as you arrange your vacation, or use it to help you navigate the area once you are here. We’ve put lots of useful information such as where to stay, what to do, history and culture, day trips, unique parks and features along the Boise River and so much more.

We’ve never met a stranger. In Boise we meet friends!

Carrie Westergard, Executive Director
