Why Boise, Idaho Is a Top 100 Best Place to Live
Boise is consistently one of the most popular cities featured on Livability. A beautiful, welcoming, rapidly growing city that was recently named #1 on our Top 100 Best Places to Live in America, there are tons of reasons why so many people want to know more about living in Boise.
Boise has the Boise Philharmonic. It has theater. It has a state capital and a military base. Its university has added “football powerhouse” to its already-impressive resume. The natural amenities are perhaps even more impressive than the cultural ones. Boise sits at the intersection of desert and mountains with the Boise river running through downtown. The climate is mild year round, but
still varied throughout the year.
There are also some really great restaurants in Boise, most of them featuring patio and sidewalk seating. Because we have a mild climate, patio season is April through October.
Obviously living up to the potato reputation we have The Boise Fry Company where you can pick your potato and style of fry, along with a whole row of different fry sauces. There are some fun restaurants along the Boise River too, you can ride your bike on the Greenbelt and then stop for dinner or a drink.
Plus, there’s rafting, rock-climbing and fly-fishing. We moved here because of all these outdoor adventure opportunities and we love it. It’s easy to get some friends together and go hiking!
