Boise Travel Guide

Why? Boise, the 'City of Trees', offers a unique blend of vibrant cultural attractions, including the Basque Museum and the Morrison Center for the Performing Arts, against a backdrop of natural beauty. It is the gateway to southwest Idaho's endless outdoor activities.

When? For skiers and snowboarders, the only time to visit Idaho is during the winter. Just north of Boise is the Bogus Basin Mountain Resort, with 2,600 acres of skiable terrain 7,000 feet (2,134m) above sea level. Outdoor recreation does not end with the ski season, however. Summers are beautiful, and visitors can opt for hiking, mountain biking, white-water rafting or hot air balloon rides.

Who for? Idaho is heaven for outdoor enthusiasts, though romantics can look forward to plenty of cosy evenings before roaring fires. Family-friendly activities are also countless.
