To start out, I have to let you know I am going to be extremely biased about the North End of Boise. I have lived, worked, gone to school, and volunteered around the North End for over 16 years and there couldn't be a better place to grow up and/or be an active member of your community. Everyone seems to have this care about our community right when they cross the threshold of their front door. The essence is intoxicating! I have volunteered at Corpus Christi Homeless Shelter, Veterans Home of America, Dunia MArket place; worked at 13th Pub and Grill, SunRay Cafe; attended Lowell Elementary, North Junior High, and Boise High school--which all of these wonderful places can be found within the North End of Boise and I am grateful for each and every institute or business here that has shaped the person I am today.

The North End is a beautiful neighborhood with easy access to the Boise foothills. Historical houses sit alongside beautiful new construction in this sought-after location. Community engagement is encouraged and neighborhood meet-and-greets are common. As mentioned previously, the foothills offer ample recreational opportunities along with breathtaking views. I was born and raised in Boise and still relish in the fact that I was able to purchase a small house near Sunset park. My neighbors are kind and quirky characters, always ready to lend a hand. I feel incredibly blessed to find myself living in the North End pursuing my dreams of becoming an RN.
Boise really is a secret gem (no pun intended)! It has everything you might want from a big city, but with small city quaintness. While the North End is by far the nicest neighborhood, the Bench and other areas are nice alternatives. The citizens are very friendly and everywhere feels safe. There are many local businesses, including the ever-popular and growing craft beer industry. Despite being a small city, there is a lot of culture. Live music almost every night of the week, and varying events (cultural and environmental) scattered throughout the year makes the social scene vibrant.
