Current Resident: Boise is a great place to be active! I love having the foothills close by to run, hike, and mountain bike in! There is a growing ski resort just 45 minutes drive from downtown. Boise is growing and real estate is expensive. Unfortunately, the salaries have not increased at the same level of housing costs. Generally people are nice, but not super friendly. Downtown is still very livable, with grocery stores, drug stores, entertainment, restaurants, and work all with in walking and biking distances. Because Boise is the biggest city for hours, we have some of the great amenities of a bigger city without having to be so large. We have great arts and concerts for being as small as we are. I love catching an outdoor concert in the summer or attending a concert by one of our many orchestra groups.
