The cultural, economic, and political heart of Idaho; welcome to the City of Trees! Boise is not only the Capital City; it is the nerve center of our great state. On its downtown streets, you will find cultural diversity, fine dining, boutique coffee shops, luxury spa’s, shopping, state of the art office buildings, and perhaps most importantly; a friendly, bustling energy.
Boise, Idaho consistently ranks in the top ten nationwide in studies and rankings of “Best Places to Live” (U.S. News & World Report), “Best Cities for Jobs” (Business Insiders), and “Best Downtown” (Livability). Those who have been to Downtown Boise quickly realize the vital role it plays in Boise winning these accolades. There are few cities in the country that can match the accessibility, walkability, or versatility that is Downtown, Boise, Idaho. Those who know it best have described it as a “Small town feel with big city amenities”.
Those amenities are currently undergoing a rapid transformation. The downtown corridor is currently under renovation with the recent addition of several boutique hotels such as the Inn at 500; the prominent Zions bank tower at Eight & Main; Jacks Urban Meeting Place (JUMP); several condo projects such as The Afton, and the new Transit Center located in City Center Plaza.
Boise has consistently been identified as one of the Northwest’s most vibrant hotspots; an urban city on a compact scale. The City of Trees is bordered by picturesque, rolling foothills and is graced by a river running right through the center of town. Featuring somewhat surprisingly convenient air access from most major US cities, and an expanded convention center surrounded by hotels, fine dining, and outdoor adventures— Boise has it all.
