The COVID-19 global pandemic has many people thinking about things they are missing, as well as things they appreciate in their life. As a team we reflect weekly on aspects of business and our personal lives for which we are grateful. One of the things we really appreciate is this lovely city we call home!
Boise falls under the category of a 'big town' more than it does a city. That may seem weird to many, but locals who live in the many distinct and unique neighborhoods will relate to this message.
There are so many things to love about our city! While of course not all-encompassing, below is ‘Part I’ of things we're grateful for about Boise:
Open Space Boise residents love access to open space and area for recreation. Starting at various trailheads across north Boise you can access over 190 miles of trails snaking through the Boise Foothills. And for those muddy days, there is always the 25-mile Boise River Greenbelt — our tree-lined pathway that follows the river through the heart of the city. There aren't many excuses to not exercise around here!
Local-centric Artists, restaurants, musicians, farmer's market, and the local Boise Bicycle Project. The list goes on and on. Boise has loads of local businesses, artists, musicians, etc and is keen on supporting local. It's also quite easy to volunteer and get involved in this community, which is full of pride for the local movement.
Downtown Boise A great place to see and be seen. Downtown Boise is a lively and fun place to dine, shop, and stroll. Check out Freak Alley for local artwork on buildings, order takeout at any number of local restaurants, and window shop at boutique shops. There is so much fun to be had in downtown Boise just walking around outside!
This list is barely the tip of the iceberg. Stay tuned for future articles about why we love Boise! And if you have ideas about what we should highlight, let us know!
