- City in Idaho
Boise has an amazing 12 mile long Greenbelt that runs along the Boise river. The foot hills around the area offer excellent hiking. The Snake river canyons offer great white water rafting. If you enjoy the great outdoors Boise is a wonderful place to live. But, although there is a bus system, there is no real public transportation. You have to own a car to live here.
I would recommend Boise to anyone looking for a new change of scenery. It has bits of small town with perks of a growing metropolis. Great entertainment everywhere, whether you are into the downtown feel or the great outdoors. People make you feel like a part of the community.
Great place to live, settle, raise a family. Many who grew up here and left for "greener pastures" end up coming back to settle. Growing metropolis area -- Big enough to have some diversity, small enough to feel like a community.
Great place for families and those who love the outdoors. Easy access to hunting, fishing, and camping!
I love the city of Boise. I visited Boise shortly after being honorable discharged from the Marine Corps to look at Boise State University. Everyone I talked to had wonderful things to say about the university as well as the city. Boise has its own culture defined by the "little man" stores that can be found everywhere. People seem to be very genuine throughout my visit. I am incredibly excited to start my first day at Boise State University!!
Boise is a growing community attracting families and outdoor enthusiasts. Parks and family-friendly activities are plentiful. It's location along the Boise River provides ample opportunity for water sports and fishing.
Being able to be outside and enjoy mother nature. Its very family friendly. A bikeable and walkable city.
Great atmosphere and the people are very friendly and helpful. The school is very nice and always a lot happening. Always staying busy here and by far the best place to live.
Very friendly and welcoming environment. Lots of outdoorsy things to do near by. Very clean area and always safe. The locals are very helpful and always know where to find some hidden secrets. The food is alright but there are definitely some gems hidden around the city.
I have lived in Boise almost my whole life. If you like the outdoors- this is the place to be. The mountain ranges are equipped with all kinds of awesome wildlife. Also, the natural hot springs are not to be missed; and very nearby to town. It doesn't hurt that the locals are pretty awesome people too!
Boise is a great place to live for families and outdoor enthusiasts. There's plenty of shopping areas with BoDo, Boise Towne Square Mall, and The Village (although this is technically Meridian). The foothills and Tablerock are close for hiking, and the Boise River and Lucky Peak for water sports. People are overall friendly, and the weather is often sunny. Boise is a truly lovely place!
Boise is a family friendly town that is growing. There are many things to do here. What I would like to see changed her are; better roads, better public transportation.
Boise is a very active city that promotes community and health. The foothills keep the residents aware of the surround nature while the city offers nightlife and a plethora of alternative scenes for artists, musicians, and scholars. There is a river that goes through the city that brings everyone together during the summer and has a greenbelt path running along as well. This creates a fast option for traveling on bike or enjoying the scenery for anyone. It would be great to see less construction and building of new homes in the Boise Foothill area because this is a part of land that is fragile and delicate, it really keeps the city unique and offering a lot to it's people.
Boise is A beautiful city with tons of outdoor activities to take advantage of. There are miles of walking/biking trails, great places to hike, rivers and lakes for water activities. It is a small city that is growing rapidly. However, when I first moved here about two years ago, it was difficult for me to get a job and a residence. I would like it if the city was less bias and more accepting of its minority population.
Boise, Idaho is a great city for family, it is safe and clean as a city. It has grown a lot over the last 10 years and is continuously growing. The job market and house market are growing very quickly, jobs for anyone and everyone.
I love Boise, family based area, lots of outdoor activities. Housing affordable for single parent. The public schools are ok, some may need improvement.
Boise is the best of both. You get the small town feel with the big city stores. You get all the major retailers - Whole Foods, Trader Joes. Plus you get unique stores and restaurants.
Boise is a wonderful city. Due to its smaller size yet still the central metropolis in Idaho, it has a great mix of small town and big city life. It is great for families and easy to get around. Boise is a great place for those who love the outdoors.
Boise has been an amazing place to grow up. The city offers a mix of small town and big city, which has helped me become a well-rounded young adult. I've received a great education through the Catholic School system and excited to use what I've learned when I enter college next fall.
Boise is an amazing city to live in. I love the people I meet, the area is nice and clean, it feels safe, and there are tons of good places to shop and play.
