Travel Tips from people who've been to Boise
Famous for the 'Smurf turf' at Boise State University, this city has a lot of charm for a small city. During the summer there is a free concert in the heart of downtown, the Grove, and the crowd spills out to all of the local restaurants and bars in downtown and the 8th street market place.
During the winter the local ski hill, Bogus Basin (named for a failed gold mine) is only 16 miles outside of town. With seven ski lifts, 2600 acres of terrain and 1800 feet of vertical this Mountain provides quality winter entertainment.
Boise is home to one of the largest (if not THE largest) basque populations outside of the Basque country. The Mayor of Boise is of Basque heritage, and there is a 'Basque block' in downtown with a museum and Bar Guernica serving traditional Basque fare.

If you love wild horses and mountains that take your breath away that would be Boise Idaho. Mountain ranges full of scenery. Not too far from Salt Lake City Utah and Las Vegas Nevada. On the edge of the great western desert you will see birds full of color you didnt know existed. Wild Horses running free up and down mountain ranges. And if u love Skiing .. grab them ski's .. Sun Valley is right there ... and u mite meet a Movie Star while there.
